“I like pink very much, Lois.”
I just revisited this interview scene for the first time in years and it has only gotten better with age. Get it, Ms. Lane! Here’s hoping that new Supes can do the cocky jock/bashful boyscout balancing act as well as Reeve did. (Oh man, when he spells “Krypton.” Slays me.)
It’s also proof that it’s more than possible to have extreme sexual innuendo without making your material degrading to either party in any capacity as well as still appropriate for your intended audience which may include children.
Your end result is a scene dripping with sexuality without any sense of objectification or degradation.
“When my 60 seconds came around, I realized I had everything I ever wanted… but nothing I really needed. And I think what I need is here. And I came all this way to see if you maybe think so too. If you do, well… I don’t really have plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O’Callhan and I should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal: I propose we not make plans, I propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. So what do you say, do you want to not make plans with me?”
some people see the revolution but most only see the girl
i can lose my hard earned freedom if my fear defines my world
i declare my independence from the critics and their stones
i can find my revolution I can learn to stand alone
