Sometimes we’re slow in our household to catch up on TV shows, but we always DVR new episodes of Criminal Minds. At the end of the episode from two weeks ago, which I just watched last night, Dr. Spencer Reid tosses out this quote in a VO as the team is heading back on the plane to BAU:
“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.” – Tom Stoppard
The quote is from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. To make it even more fitting, after the VO, Reid pulls a big coin out of his pocket, studies it, and begins flipping it around his fingers as the episode ends.
Plate of shrimp!
So here we are, getting ready for the last weekend. We have our pickup rehearsal tonight and then the final three performances.
I’m going to consider the Criminal Minds thing a good omen.
If you need more encouraging to come out, just scroll through the last few blog entries here. You don’t have a good excuse not to come. Not even that.
