We’ve been sort of lukewarm on Alias all season, and have just been letting the episodes pile up on our TiVo. Well, spurred on by some “It ain’t dead yet,” articles in Entertainment Weekly and on the Internet, we began watching those eps tonight. This was the one where Marshall flies to Cuba to save Sidney.
Single best line in TV this season. I don’t know that I have laughed harder at TV since I last watched Scrubs.
And you know what? You have to have seen the episode to get it. So for those of you who have. Marshall has been instructed to find a “digging tool” by Jack, and he fumbles around and comes up with a spork. On hearing this, Jack turns quizzically to Vaughn, and asks:
“What’s a spork?”
Delivered with such comic timing, and so deadpan, and so appropriately used. I actually paused it to laugh fully and heartily, to discuss it with Tiffany (who just laughed at me, I think), and then I rewound it to watch it again, before continuing with the show.
