Zeke again, but still pressed for time, so I'll have to be quick. Hopefully I'll have time for a more leisurely update tomorrow. The Day 7 content:
    [*]Derek concludes one of my favourite DS9 two-parters with "The Die is Cast."[*]Scooter gives us his first Smallville fiver: the Season 1 cliffhanger, "Tempest." (Temporary page.)[*]And the Cliffhangers saga continues with Part 4 by yours truly.[/list]

    Day 8 tomorrow. (What? Yes, we called this a "Week." What's your point?)

Tain: It's not crowded.

Tain: I need you to torture Odo.
Garak: Aw, do I hafta?
Tain: You used to love torturing people, Garak. What happened?
Garak: I got cursed with a soul.
OMG, I never realized -- Garak is Angel!

Boy, the staff sure are having a bad day, huh? I hope everybody survives next time when everybody dies...

WHAT? Last time I was Seven, this time I'm Fred, is there something I should be asking myself?

Heeheehee, great fiver Derek.

Garak: Sigh. I guess it's back to the old tailor shop.
Odo: Well, maybe you'll be able to have a fire sale.
Garak: I wonder if it's a bad idea to yell "Fire Sale" in a crowded Promenade.
Is that an Arrested Development reference, or just a coincidence?

Whee! Big fun.
Quote:
Kira: Admiral Toddman just sent us a message saying that if we go into the Gamma Quadrant we are betraying our oath, our duty, and him.
Sisko: What a load of crap. Like anyone would ever say something so melodramatic.
Who, indeed? Heheheh.
Quote:
Garak: I've come to torture you.
Odo: Uh, you can't torture me, I won't stay solid.
Garak: Don't be so sure about that. I plan to apply lots of pressure.
---------------------
Garak: I'm up to 47 atms at the moment. Sure you don't want to tell me your secret?
Odo: What secret, Lex?
Garak: 48 atms.
Odo: All right! All right! My secret is that I want to return to my people! It crushes me to have to tell you that.
Garak: Nah, it's probably just all the extra pressure.
---------------------
Garak: I wasn't able to get anything from him.
Tain: Come on. He obviously had a secret. You sure you don't have a crush on him?
Garak: Not anymore. I returned his quarters to normal pressure.
:mrgreen:
Quote:
Lovok: Don't worry. I'm actually a Founder.
Garak: Aaah! Are you going to kill us?
Lovok: No. Because no Changeling has ever harmed another.
Odo: Why did you say it like that?
Lovok: Seemed important.
Hee.

Really nice work, Derek.


Quote:
Nixon: Cool, a spaceship! And there's even a slot for the octagonal paperweight I swiped from Luthor.
Spaceship: Hey, I've been looking for that. Bye now! See you next season!
Nixon: Oops.
Heh heh.


Quote:
Kira: Uh, Zeke... is that a sucking chest wound?
Zeke: Geez! It's not enough to tell me I suck anymore, huh? Even my wounds have to suck now!
Heheh.
Quote:
Zeke: And I'm not just a vampire here, I'm a vampire with a solo.
(Zeke pulls out his clarinet and starts playing. A few moments later, realizing the joke and his notes have fallen flat, he puts it away.)
What sort of clarinet solo would a vampire play, anyway? (And don't say "Peg o' My Heart".)
Quote:
Zeke: Don't worry, you're not him. You're Wesley.
Marc: Oh no! NO!
Zeke: Not your usual Wesley. This one used to be sort of similar, but then he was gradually betrayed by everyone and everything he cared about, leaving him a borderline psychotic.
Marc: Ah. Good.
Derek: (Uh oh. Wait a minute....)

Quote:
Zeke: IJD, you're Gunn, the young, street-smart fighter with a vigilante past.
IJD: If I understand this show correctly, I have a vigilante present too.
Zeke: It's not the same. You used to be a troll; now you're more like a slightly corrupt admin.
Heh.
Quote:
Kira: But which one will it be? WHICH ONE?
Derek: Pause for suspense.
Kira: You're not supposed to actually say that.
*snicker*

Good stuff, all.

Ah. I've never heard that phrase before except on AD, so I had to wonder. You should definitely watch it, though -- I just got the S1 DVD a month ago and it's fantastic. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Creative order interpretation is a critical skill for field officers.

I have absolutely no idea what that means.

As a brass player, I am duty-bound to mock woodwinds. *ahem* HAW-haw! OK, done. Excellent joke, Zeke.

Quote:
Zeke: No problem. We'll take a blipvert.
A whatnow?

I assume from Derek's reaction that Fred is a girl. *snicker* Poor Derek. Suddenly Sa'arclay isn't looking so bad.

Trombone, in theory. Haven't played much since I got to Ottawa. It's sitting in its case in the corner of my room, gathering dust (but not rust, thankfully).

Clarinet jazz is badly underrated. I spent two years in CUJO, the Carleton University Jazz Orchestra, with my clarinet. Fun stuff.

I agree.....there's some great clarinet jazz music....of which a fine example is "The Mooche" by Duke Ellington.......

Clarinet? Zeke, you don't by any chance happen to live next door to a square pants-wearing yellow sponge with a pet snail, do you? :lol:

I spent three years in a swing band, playing with guys who had more years of experience than I did of lifetime.
