My biggest problem with the episode wasn't with Rain Man, but with the ridiculous deus ex machina of President Palmer going from comatose to coherent in just a matter of minutes.

On other soap operas, like Days of Our Lives and All My Children, people come out of comas all the time like that...

Good point.

I just wanted an excuse to use the phrase "deus ex machina" in a post.

It is still one of my favorite video games.

Next week should be interesting.  Palmer can't so much as flinch or the cabinet is gonna article 26 his ass.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I didn't like Palmer being that coherent either.  He just doesn't have the spark that his brother had.

Other than that, good episode last night.

LOL!!!! He can't show any signs of weakness, or like you said, they'll article 26 his arse! Then Curly Bill Daniels will be blasting the Middle East back to the stone age!!

Great episode last night!

Highlights:
- Even though I saw it coming the amputation of Grendenko's arm was cool. 
- Fayed getting the beat down in the bar from the "common folk" was cool.
- Daniels assistant falling on the sword (in more ways than one I suspect ;) )
- Lennox's ace-in-the-hole over Daniels (I fear Lennox isn't long for this world)
- Pres. Palmer "I am done talking" BOOOMMM!

Actually the Gredenko bit shocked me and made me rather queasy... but I guess he was wrong in the long run. There was no way both of them making it out of there alive... especially after losing that much blood. I guess they were in too much of a hurry to think of turniquet (sp?)... Now someone's got a one'armed Bernie hanging on the beach.  ;)

Surprised by Palmer's change of direction. Cool about Lennox bugging Daniels. And I wonder what is motiviating Ricky Schroeder to cover Milo's tracks?

Maybe he still suspects Nadia, so he could be just trying to draw her into making a mistake if she thinks he's "on her side"

Wow, just finished watching the current episode!! Damn, gotta say one great episode!! I don't agree with other boards in calling this episode slow in the beginning. I think the drama up front was very well done!! Palmer vs Daniels and Lennox as the wild card!! Lennox played his hand to perfection!! Too bad it didn't work, and Palmer went ahead with the strike!! Wow, way to assert your authorita!!

I did not see Fayed cutting off his arm!! I thought somehow they had some sort of back up plan where they had a machine that could disrupt the transmission or something!! Wow to pull a Walrus Man, pretty hardcore!! And jaybird, yes, that beatdown was nice!! I would hae loved to seen it last a bit longer, a bit more bloody would be just right!!

And I dislike Daniel's assistant even more, I hope she gets what's coming to her!!

I guess the acknoledgement that you two are pathetic trolls and according to the standards here, you should hae been suspeneded long ago!! I mean some of the complaints that you guys have of the scum are that their mods don't do a thing to trolls, well I see two here, have made comment after comment to goad me, and I see nothing from the mods!!  Hell a mod himself tries to call me out!! I have done nothing since the time I've been here but try to contribute. And you gotta be honet, I've barely been here at all!

Thing is, they like you two, so even if you are trolling looking for confrontation, they'll look the other cheek!! I wonder which is worse, mods that don't get to all the boards and thus let trolls loose, or mods that turn the other cheek??

And I gotta say, it's not all the mods here. There are a lot of good ones, DSJ, Jesse James, and Jeff, whom I respect a whole lot! They do a good job and are fair and down the middle!! Which is what a good mod is supposed to be!! If you can't let your emotions aside when it comes to dealing with people, then step down!

!!??

!!!!

*Elaine's apartment. Jake is there and Elaine comes in.*

Elaine: Hello.... hello, oh...

Jake: Well, you notice anything?

Elaine: You have cleaned out the whole apartment and you're making dinner. Oh, you are a perfect, you are a perfect man.

*Jake feels Elaine's coat material.*

Jake: Ooh...

Elaine: Did anyone call?

Jake: I got a few messages, I wrote them down.

Elaine: Where are they?

Jake: Lets see, they are...here they are.

Elaine: Thank you. Heh, I'll call you back.Ooh, Myra had the baby! Oh, my God that's wonderful! Who called?

Jake: She did.

Elaine: She did? Oh, that's so great!

Jake: Where do you keep the corkscrew?

Elaine: In the drawer on the right. Hmm...

Jake: What?

Elaine: Oh it's nothing.

Jake: What is it?

Elaine: It's nothing.

Jake: Tell me.

Elaine: Well, I was just curious why you didn't use an exclamation point?

Jake: What are you talking about?

Elaine: See, right here you wrote "Myra had the baby", but you didn't use an exclamation point.

Jake: So?

Elaine: So, it's nothing. Forget it, forget it, I just find it curious.

Jake: What's so curious about it?

Elaine: Well, I mean if one of your close friends had a baby and I left you a message about it, I would use an exclamation point.

Jake: Well, maybe I don't use my exclamation points as haphazardly as you do.

Elaine: You don't think that someone having a baby warrants an exclamation point.

Jake: Hey, I just chalked down the message. I didn't know I was required to capture the mood of each caller.

Elaine: I just thought you would be a little more excited about a friend of mine having a baby.

Jake: Ok, I'm excited. I just don't happen to like exclamation points.

Elaine: Well, you know Jake, you should learn to use them. Like the way I'm talking right now, I would put an exclamation points at the end of all these sentences! On this one! And on that one!

Jake: Well, you can put one on this one: I'm leaving!

1. Nobody likes Matt.  ;)
2. I'm not looking for a confrontation.
3. What does looking the other cheek(!!) involve?

Perhaps if I up the ante on exclamation points, this will be your reply!! ;)
