There was no need to pair Seven up with anyone. She worked better single anyway.

Being part of a collective is what defines this woman.

Single loneliness must have been killing her.

Auxum should have come back and swept her away.

Hate and spite will keep you alive.

Make a list.

Then pee on some graves.

Don't we all? Thing is, that woman can become your loyal friend--and that might be the best of all worlds....

I haven't seen it, because I'm not a fan of romance movies or Billy Crystal. But give me Bette Davis as some evil insane old broad and I'm there.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

In the beginning...

Harry: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally: Why not?
Harry: What I'm saying is — and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form — is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.
Sally: That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved.
Harry: No you don't.
Sally: Yes I do.
Harry: No you don't.
Sally: Yes I do.
Harry: You only think you do.
Sally: You say I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?
Harry: No, what I'm saying is they all want to have sex with you.
Sally: They do not.
Harry: Do too.
Sally: They do not.
Harry: Do too.
Sally: How do you know?
Harry: Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.
Sally: So you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?
Harry: No, you pretty much want to nail 'em too.
Sally: What if they don't want to have sex with you?
Harry: Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
Sally: Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then.
Harry: Guess not.
Sally: That's too bad. You were the only person that I knew in New York.
At the end of the movie ten years later (movie time), Harry came to think that it was great that he was in love with his friend.

(The actual quote I found online surprised me, which was a little different from what I had in my head, which failed to address all the points I was trying to make as squarely as I had hopped.

Stupid brain.)

I watched 4 seasons of Soap recently.

Young Billy Crystal was hilarious.

Although by the early 80s, George Burns was making Billy look youthful and optimistic.

Agreed. It's a classic whether you like those kinds of movies or not.

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

To be honest, my aversion to romance movies is I've not been in love since a divorce 35 years ago. I miss it, but I don't want a film reminding me of it.

No romance movie ever reminded me of being in love. If I have to watch them I'm usually thinking the are doomed idiots.

Really? After my most traumatic breakup which I'll never really want to recover from, I didn't want to watch monster/slasher pics anymore.

We must be into very different women.

Have you seen "I give it a year"?

At the end...

"Will you make me the happiest man in the world, will you divorce me?"

"Yes, yes, yes! How did you know that that was exactly what I wanted! You made me the happiest woman in the world! Thank you!"

Re: When did voyager go wrong?

The first film I saw during the separation was Animal House when some friends dragged me to it, and it was the first time I'd laughed in weeks. I should have been content with that. But after it was final, I went alone to see Burt Reynolds' Starting Over, which was a big mistake because I was still hurting. I had a few relationships afterwards, but none developed into anything. The last one was in 1998. I have no car, no money, am mostly homebound, can never work again due to health problems, and there's nothing I can provide for anyone.
