| Show and Tell: The Diner Edition
|[Aug. 28th, 2010|01:25 am]
One of the things I enjoy the most about QAF, especially in the early seasons,
was the way "the gang" met up in the Diner. I think some of the best
interactions between characters occurred there, and so many clues to what was
going on inside a storyline were shared with us, the viewers, if we paid close
attention to what was going on in the Liberty Diner.
One of my favorite diner scenes is from episode 108. After Justin's Dad
beats the crap out of Brian everyone ends up in the Diner, even though
before the attack they all seemed to be heading off on their separate ways for
the rest of the night.
We see Justin embellishing his part in the drama, Brian petulantly trying to bring attention back to his trauma, and we find out, also in a dramatic way, that Debbie has been overworking trying to make ends meet. We get a whole lot of information, a whole lot of snappy dialogue all in the space of about two minutes.
Now it's your turn. ;)
Show me some of your favorite diner scenes and tell me why.

I love 309 as much as the next person (CHA CHA!), but there's one thing that always bothered me about it: Brian's fugly shirt with the mustard stripes when they're filming the Stockwell campaign ad. Or rather, no matter if it's ugly or not, it just doesn't suit his style.
However, looking at a certain other episode today, I had a total déjà-vu:
So... Is it just me or are 309!Brian and 401!Emmett sharing their wardrobe/brain/outfitter? Or is there a difference between the shirts? (Couldn't find a cap of 309, sadly, so you will have to look for yourselves.)
It's a bit random, but I just thought it funny :)
