Okay, once again you've written the absolute truth about a character's thoughts at a given point in the film. How do you do that? The knife-to-the-throat bit is very much deserving of some time rattling around in Angel's head. I was going to quote bits at you, but (as is so often the case), I couldn't choose.

So I'll just say that I am grateful to you for bringing into my life the mental image of Nicholas Angel as a member of the Swiss Guard, because A) it is hilarious and B) it immediately turns into a quick-cut gunfight scene in the Vatican, with Angel tossing aside the sword and ridiculous hat (no time to do anything about the uniform) and whipping out sunglasses, unreasonably large gun, and trademarked action-hero growl to fight off masked assailants gunning for the Pope. Because I believe in happy endings, Danny turns up eating a gelatto after a stroll 'round the piazza, sees what's up, and cheerfully pulls a couple of Berettas he's somehow gotten past all of the security. The resultant mayhem eventually ends with decapitated statuary, distressed pigeons, and one unfortunate bishop with a sadly diminished mitre.

... Okay, this comment just wins.

Possibly because it's 4:00 in the morning.

I agree. We should keep her. I have a fenced yard...

Okay, but you have to feed her and walk her twice a day.

(...this is just getting into a whole weird area now.)

I can do that.

She eats chips, right?

Thank you! (4:00 in the morning definitely magnifies things...) If I may return the compliment, I saw your Sweet zombie Jesus on a Segway and had to take a moment to relish the image. Definitely my new favorite Jesus-on-an-object type oath.

I have so many variants of that phrase. "Sweet Zombie Jesus on a Segway yodeling showtunes" is my latest favorite, but it's a bit cumbersome.

The knife-to-the-throat bit freaks me out, because there is so much going on that I always completely forget it happens. So every time, I'm all, Dude, holy shit! And then I'm all, Bitch, please, you'd sooner stomp a kitten. And then there's more running and stabbing and I forget it again. And even Danny probably forgot it. But Angel probably didn't, ever.

I am so full of love for you right now. Can one of the villains get shot and fall over into the Pieta and land on top of Jesus?

I've heard that, despite their comedy trousers, the Swiss Guard are actually pretty badass. I don't know if it's true. But you could fit an awful lot of ordnance in those pants.

It is absolutely a given that that must happen. I think I've now found the image I'll be turning to when I need to get through the rough bits of the workday tomorrow.

The Swiss Guard must be pretty badass to pull off those outfits.

Walked into the library yesterday lunchtime, and there on the new books display was a whole history of the Swiss Guard.

I got The Power of Art instead, 'cause, more pictures. But it was close.
