It occurred to me when I was rewatching the ep that Stiles knows what it’s like to listen to a family member die because he was there when his mom died and this scene just got even more heartbreaking…
THANKS FOR THAT SATAN.
I love how Eames is bored listening to Cobb. Fidgeting and fiddling with his totem until Arthur speaks up. Then his whole body focuses on Arthur. He sits up and swivels around - even his hand stills for a bit. All of his attention on Arthur. Just look at them!!![snip] itdelights me that Eames clearly lies in wait for Arthur to say something that he can jump all over him for. It’s like someone put a coin in him the way he turns to Arthur with his eyes dancing.
[snip] personally I don’t think Eames lies in wait for Arthur—i mean, this is the guy who casually throws around phrases like “anti-monopolistic sentiments,” lol. I think it’s more that Arthur riles him to occupy whatever corner Arthur isn’t occupying.
[snip] If anything I feel like Eames thinks Arthur’s a little dull (both in terms of intelligence and personality) and is quite overtly delighted and distracted by this spark of ~something from Arthur.
[snip] I keep getting tripped up on Arthur regarding his level of education, and my Arthur never settles firmly into one or the other. He seems clearly sharp and competent, but… On the other hand, I always get stuck on the way he says “that worked so good” to Cobb instead of “that worked so well.”
I think that Arthur is a total street rat who’s had to fight for every scrap of education he’s gotten; and that, in self-educating himself, he’s gotten a much better, much higher level of cultural and general education than most people with four degrees or so. I LOVE that he says “that worked so good” bc to me that’s a) proof of how shaken up he is, that he lets his cultured veneer drop, and b) a hint of the rough past he’s smoothed over. And I think that Eames can always sense that past around Arthur’s edges, (even if you don’t buy the military backstory that says eames probably new Arthur back when he WAS that street rat), and part of that gleam of delight is the chance to slip in some extra intimacy in reminding Arthur that Eames knows him that well, and no amount of five-syllable-words and fine suits can ever completely mask that.
Yyy love it. And I definitely buy this characterization of Arthur the self-made man — who incidentally will never understand how Eames could so casually toss away all his own privileged upbringing and advantages, become a petty thief (because that’s what Eames did, to start) and a thug. And Eames still has the temerity to throw his vocabulary and education around in front of Arthur, to tease Arthur about his shortcomings, because Eames might roll around in the mud for fun but he’s not from this world and he never will be and UGH MY FEELS.
(It’s awesome that we can still have these discussions all this time after the movie came out. Good acting gives you so many levels! LIKE DREAMS.)
#that comment about arthur being a street rat #and having to educate himself actually makes so much sense if we consider the ‘specificity’ teasing that goes on here #i used to think that the scene was meant to show arthur flaunting his education and sophistication in eames’ face #but what if eames is the one with 3 degrees #who didn’t have to pay his way through some illustrious university because he came from a rich family #and instead of arthur being arrogant here it is actually eames
#eames condescendingly calls arthur out on his use of ‘big words’ #because of course eames is more that aware of arthur’s past and he knows that the quickest way to get under his skin is to bring it up #and you can tell by the way that arthur enunciates spe-ci-fi-ci-ty that it was meant to sound like ‘fuck off’ (x)
YES. I litterally have nothing else to add because that is exactly how I see them. Arthur having to work hard for everything and thus the mild OCD over the little details and Eames being a spoiled rich boy who just left it all because he didn’t want to be. Ugh, you are all amazing and yes. Plus hood rat Arthur is love XD
#people who say stiles and allison weren’t friends#or they only cared for each other because of scott TAKE NOTE#that is not the face of a girl looking at her acquaintance#that is the face of a girl looking at one of her closest friends and trying to resolve something in herself that would let her put him down for the greater good.#and ultimately she can’t.#allison died for her friends#and stiles was definitely one of them.

I was 900% prepared for her to flip the bird for science in this scene like oh here’s the bones of the finger that I use to say ‘fuck you’
hey remember when we used to have companions who were actualized individuals and not just puzzles to be solved
#dean winchester is a geek #and #dean winchester is a genius #and I mourn sometimes for young dean #the one who started school late#who switched schools so much that he fell behind #the one whose dad never helped him in school #or encouraged him to have interest in academics #or in science #who probably looked at the EMF meter and said #’well I guess that’ll save money on buying one’ #the dad who spent Dean’s college fund on ammunition#and teachers probably looked at his school record #all the transfers #all the school fights from protecting Sammy and over bullies and girls and that time there was a monster at school #and judged him without even looking further #and maybe had him in remedial classes #and so he stopped trying #stopped thinking he had any right to be smart #he didn’t have time anyway #not with helping Sammy with his homework #and practicing weapons #and hunting #so somewhere along the line he just stopped trying #stopped caring #and he never had a teacher who noticed #never had one that challenged him on his bullshit #told him what he was capable of #and to this day Dean thinks he’s a grunt #thinks Sammy is the smart one
But you’re dead.
