    When Brian Brophy visits Graceland, they let him play Elvis's gold records.

    The Double-O program began in February 1951 with Brian Brophy dispatching Hitler in Argentina.

    Although ended in May 1964, whispered rumors as to its continuance began resurfacing in August 1977 after Brian Brophy was seen driving in the night, away from Memphis, Tennessee with an unidentified, possibly drunken, companion murmuring on about Marylin Monroe, UFO’s...and a Farm.

    Whenever Brian Brophy rides the rails (which is everywhere, even when traveling overseas), he spends the trip breaking ties... railroad ties, so that no one can follow him.

    This accounts for 100% of all derailments over the last five years.

    Brophy eats Fruity Pebbles. Not the cereal. He grinds up bright, colorful rocks and pours milk on them. And they are delicious.

    Only two days until we can celebrate the One-Year-Of-Brian-Brophy-Didn't-Return anniversary.

    Brian Brophy didn't return....because he never left.

    “You don’t aim to kill nobody, Brian?”

    “No. I’ve been thinkin’, as long as I’m a outlaw, recast on PIC anyway, maybe I could — Hell, I haven’t thought it out clear, Patrick. Don’t worry me now. Don’t worry me.”

    They sat silently in the coal-black cave of vines on location at “Château Picard.” Brent said, “How’m I gonna know ’bout you? They might sue ya an’ I wouldn’ know. They might cancel ya! How’m I gonna know?”

    Brian Brophy laughed uneasily, “Well, maybe like Patrick says, a fella ain’t got a soul of his own, but only a piece of a big one — and then —”

    “Then what, Brian?”

    “Then it don’t matter. I’ll be all around in the dark. I’ll be everywhere. Wherever you look —wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a cop beatin’ up a guy, I’ll be there. I’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad and — I’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know supper’s ready. And when our folks read the fanfic they post and watch the Trek they love — why, I’ll be there. See? God, I’m talkin’ like Brent... Comes of thinkin’ about Bruce so much. Seems like I can still see him...sometimes...”

    Brian Brophy is always with us, like a Jedi's Force Ghost.

    That had its head replaced for an updated edition.

    Nobody's ever really gone, as long as we remember them.

    The real Brian Brophys were the friends we met along the way.

    Brian Brophy celebrates his birthday unlike anyone else. He relives his own birth and gives himself a driver's license a moment later.

    If they just had to recast Maddox, the new guy is still way too young. As I've said before, even assuming Maddox was a 25 year old Starfleet prodigy like Kelvin Timeline Kirk when he rejected Data's Academy application, that would still make him at minimum 83 years old in Picard.

    So... the point is if Brian just had to be replaced, it needed an aged and distinguished actor to fill the boots (No offense John Ales, it's just you're too young). Patrick's X-Men buddy Ian McKellen should have been called in to bring his Gandalf and Magneto and theater experience and appropriate age to the role of Maddox. :lol:
