#centennial (highway) rewatch 1x13

# ♪ And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray

♪ We'd like to know a little bit about your husband's death
We'd like to know if a truck was involved
Look around I know we're crazy but there's a ghost truck on your ass
Aaand your daughter thinks it's racist! ♪

What? Her last name's Robinson and she was dating two dudes at once. I can't be the only one who started humming Simon & Garfunkel.

# God, I probably shouldn't admit this, after admitting the Bugs thing, but I'm kind of down with the truck. Not... the racist part of the racist truck, or really anything about the truck, but the truck/Impala chase scene and showdown? Yeah, I could go for more of that. Stunt driving? High speed chase? Umm yes? And okay, I adore The Love Bug! Anthropomorphic (ghost) cars are adorable.

I'm going to start my S10 wish list right now: Impala-centric episode. Gratuitous driving scenes, lots of car porn. Impala H/C.

Abbas Kiarostami has a filmed called Ta'm e guilass (here's a link to the full film) which consists of nearly 90 minutes of nothing but a guy driving his car all across the Iranian countryside. He's looking for someone who would be willing to bury him after he commits suicide.

If you're at all familiar with my predilections and titillations, you know where I'm going with this. (Ugh, I'm sorry, I have needs!)

# At the end of 1x13, as they're driving away, Sam asks Dean, "Ever make you wonder if it's worth it? Putting everything else on hold? Doing what we do?"

Dean just looks at Sam and smiles.

"Can't Find My Way Home" by Blind Faith is playing in the background. You might also recognize this song from the end of 9x23 "Do You Believe in Miracles?", because it reprises when Sam drives Dean's body back to the bunker and lays him down to sleep.

I'm proud of us.


# This is probably the most charitable review of 1x13 ever written. XD But Impala tricks and throughlines to S9? What more could I possibly ask for? Well, that and I really like Simon & Garfunkel.

Some multimedia goodies:
Mrs. Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel (MP3)
Can't Find My Way Home - Blind Faith (MP3)
