Joan Rivers on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1967 (x)
HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE TALK LIKE THIS BACK THEN AND END UP HOSTING A SHOW TEARING APART WHAT PEOPLE LOOK FOR A FRIGGING LIVING????
"…and the conclusion that I’ve drawn is that you are dangerous."
Ok so let’s talk about Bedelia Du Maurier and how she was the smartest person on this show. Bedelia was the only one who ever understood the mask Hannibal wore and like the best of people, she never looked underneath out of respect - learning only what he wanted to share. But after their last session and his manipulation of her, she unravels his human suit and sees the pattern.
He had orchestrated her attack. He had done it to her, and by default, had done it to Will Graham. So she became the wild card, finally revealing how unpredictable the traumatised could be in their efforts to survive. First she ends her patient relationship with Hannibal in his office - leaving him unaware that she had packed up her home. She then closes her involvement with his investigation, removing herself from from Hannibal’s deck, and finally, she takes Hannibal’s hand and shows it to Will Graham.
Bedelia tells Will that she feels like she knows him, but he says she doesn’t and she responds, "No, I don’t - But I understand you better than I thought." Because they had been the same card in Hannibal’s game at one point. So she tells him, "You can survive this happening to you," because she had. And for the first time, the scale is tipped.
But it isn’t until the very last scene when Hannibal goes to murder her that we see just how well Bedilia knew him. She didn’t simply anticipate his move and depart, she left her perfume bottle out for him to smell as a parting gift. It was her goodbye to him, because anything less, would have been considered rude.
And that’s when Bedelia Du Maurier stopped surviving Hannibal Lecter, and beat him, and he smiled.

HERCULES IN THE 2ND GIF OMFG
THIS IS ACTUALLY REALLY IMPORTANT THOUGH
Hercules is THE DEFINITION of a gentleman. Her dress strap slips down and HE PUTS IT BACK UP because he’s like “No, she’s a lady, she deserves my respect. Control yourself. Leave, just leave.”
Imagine if all guys/girls had that much respect for people they were attracted to…the world would be a lot better and safer, I can tell you that.
Also have to remember he’s never had a girl actually hit on him before.
In the second episode of Molly Hooper Investigates, Molly and Sally put their heads together to solve a riddle left by Sally’s former chess tutor and formative friend, Eileen, a gifted player who had to be home-schooled because of heart problems and who regarded Sally as her little chess protege until Sally decided to go become a crimefighter instead. While Sally is convinced there is no foul play involved, the appearance of chess pieces from their childhood games at Eileen’s living room where they used to play together convinced Sally that her friend had a few things left unsaid and one final game to play together.
In which there is a treasure hunt across London, lots of legwork and a (sappy) tribute to friendship.
