20.07 ("you have to believe we are magic")

Each morning a screenshot from the 20th minute and 7th second of a movie

Kira: Sounds like you don't believe it.
Michael: Well, with all that's happened to me today, to tell you the truth I don't.
Kira: You're right. It's too coincidental. Someone must be setting us up

Every time I watch this movie I wish I could roller skate. Not that anyone does that anymore... but in retrospect, don'cha know. But, like Olivia herself, I was never much of a skater. I had to run into people or things to actually stop. The same is unfortunately true for my ice skating skills which is more of a shame because ice skating is classic.

I had a bad accident ice skating once. I twisted my knee. It was, like,45 degrees outta whack. and then someone stood on my foot with their skate while it was bare. Not a fun night.

Needless to say, I'm awful at it and I've never done it before.


or since i'm hoping.

for anyone who has ever seen in the cut the ice skating dream sequence is exactly what i imagine happening to me every time i've tried ice skating so i eventually just gave up.

Actually, reading that dialogue - it comes off as much more ironic and therefore a bit more cool and witty than it actually was. Let that be a lesson Hollywood - it's all about the casting, stupid.
