TIMELESS: Methos finds love. His intended, however, is reluctant -- until he lends her his courage. An extremely well-written episode by any standards, and excellently acted. While a tender story, it does not once -- in the Methos-centric story line, at least -- falling into maudlin sentimentality or slide lazily into the morass of soap opera. Kuddos to both Peter Wingfield and Ocean Hellman.

 

2.jpg (11437 bytes) Methos: [to Alexa] Excuse me, if I sat at a table, would you be my waitress?

Alexa: [to Joe] Is he a good tipper?

Joe: [smiles] No.

Alexa: Well, too bad. Makes up for it being cute though. [Steps away to serve a customer.]

Methos: [to Joe] Cute. I can do cute

4.jpg (14002 bytes) [Alexa returns to the bar.]

Methos: I'm, uh, Adam Pierson.

Alexa: Where're you from?

Methos: Um...

Alexa: Your accent. You're not from here.

Methos: No, I've travelled a lot.

Alexa: Really? Paris.

Methos: Paris is too full of Parisians. Even the French don't like Paris.

Alexa: Venice.

Methos: Venice, the smell alone will kill you.

6.jpg (14756 bytes)
8.jpg (11546 bytes) Alexa: You're young to be so cynical, aren't you?

Methos: Uh, if you say so.

Alexa: I just did. [Walks away.]

Methos: What did I say?

Joe: Ah, forget it. Alexa's not your type, okay?

Methos: And does she [Claudia] know—

Duncan: That she's one of us? Doesn't have a clue. Somebody does, though.

Methos: What?

12.jpg (12032 bytes) Duncan: Someone's tried to kill her.

Methos: Who'd want her dead before her time?

Duncan: I don't know.

13.jpg (11539 bytes) 14.jpg (11288 bytes)
Methos: Alexa. You see, even her name is beautiful. There was something, you know. There's a— There's a spark. I wonder if she felt it? I mean I — I don't want to make a fool of myself. You ever feel like that? 15.jpg (7813 bytes) Duncan: [smiling to himself] Couple of times. I don't see what the problem is.

Methos: What if she doesn't like me?

Duncan: What if she does?

17.jpg (9482 bytes) Duncan: What am I going to tell her [Claudia]?

Methos: How about the truth? At least then she'd know what she's facing.

Duncan: Yeah. It'd be nice if she had a semblance of a normal life. Once she finds out what she is, that becomes impossible.

Methos: You can't keep her here forever.

18.jpg (10721 bytes)
Claudia: Oh, let's go to Bonatelli's. Would you call them and have them hold my table? And, uh, your friend can come along if he'd like.

Methos: Uh, no thank you. I have other plans.

16.jpg (10293 bytes) Claudia: Seriously?

Methos: Totally.

Claudia: Really?

Methos: Absolutely.

Alexa: Well, either you like to drink or you're crazy about the blues.

Methos: No, I was waiting for you. I see I leave you speechless. This is an excellent start.

Alexa: Start to what?

Methos: To dinner, a film, a concert, a smile, a sunset, a walk, ah, all of the above, whatever you would like.

21.jpg (12267 bytes) Alexa: [giggle] Do women really fall for that line?

Methos: I have no idea. I've never used it before.

Alexa: Never is a really long time.

Methos: Well, to the best of my recollection.

Alexa: Why do you want to go out with me?

Methos: Because the alternative is unthinkable.

Methos:  [to Joe] Looks like you were wrong. Turns out she is my type.

Joe: I don't know. It looked like a lot of arm twisting to me.

Methos: A girl like that, you're lucky if you find one every 10 lifetimes. Joe? Joe, what? You got some kind of house rule about dating the help? What?

Joe: Alexa is dying.

22.jpg (7955 bytes)
Alexa: This date we're supposed to go on, I don't think it's a very good idea.

Methos: Don't you like me — a little?

Alexa: It's not that.

Methos: It's my nose, isn't it? Yep, it's my nose.

23.jpg (7499 bytes) Alexa: No, it's not your nose. You have a very nice nose.

Methos: It's because you think I'm English. It's my accent. Uh, I don't have to be English. I can be Russian. Uh [says something in Russian] means "Is this the right platform for the train to Karkoff?"

Alexa: [laughing] You're outrageous!

24.jpg (7939 bytes) Methos: Russian doesn't turn you on. Okay, I can do it in Swahili. Except if I was speaking Swahili, why would I be wanting a train to Karkoff. Uh, Lithuanian? [Nal Fasi?]

Alexa: Please. Don't make me laugh.

25.jpg (8836 bytes)

28.jpg (13560 bytes)

Methos: Why not?

Alexa: Because it's not fair.

Methos: It rarely is.

Alexa: I'm sorry.

26.jpg (10252 bytes)

29.jpg (9923 bytes)

Methos: What? Tell me.

Alexa: I'm dying.

[Methos nods.]

Alexa: You see, don't you? We can't go out tomorrow.

Methos: Absolutely. We'd better make it tonight

27.jpg (10442 bytes) 

Methos: [to Joe] Where's Alexa? We have a date.

Joe: She called in sick.

Methos: Where does she live?

Joe: Adam, she doesn't want to see you, okay? Just leave her alone.

Methos: Joe, I didn't ask for your opinion. I know she's dying, okay? You are all dying. Twenty years. Six months. What's the difference?

Joe: She's protecting herself. She's protecting you, don't you get it?

Methos: Yes, I get it. Now tell me where she lives.

210.jpg (12742 bytes)

Methos: Hi. Am I late?

Alexa: Only about a year. You shouldn't have come.

Methos: Hiding your husband in there, is that what's going on? Lover? Boyfriend? Seven dwarves?

Alexa: That's exactly what I'm doing. Hiding my husband, my boyfriend, my lover and the seven dwarves.

210.jpg (12742 bytes)

Methos: I can take 'em all on. I'm not afraid.

Alexa: I shouldn't have agreed to see you. It's stupid really.

Methos: Why?

Alexa: Because you don't need to be a witness to what I'm going through. It's going to get ugly.

38.jpg (8693 bytes)

Methos: You look beautiful to me. Look, whatever it is you're going through, I can handle it, if you let me.

Alexa: Why would you want to?

Methos: Because the alternative is unthinkable. How long?

Alexa: Less than a year. They don't know. Do you ever just wish time could stand still?

33.jpg (15586 bytes)

[Methos is speechless. He hands her an envelope and backs away.]

Alexa: Plane tickets?

Methos: Anywhere you like. Everywhere, if there's time.

36.jpg (9034 bytes)

37.jpg (7359 bytes)

 

Alexa: It's not that easy.

Methos: Yes, it is. You spend whatever time you have left dying or you spend it living — with me. Please. Say you'll come with me, Alexa.

Alexa: [We're going coast to coast in a van.] Adam likes to call it our tour of the new world.

Methos: Well, it's all new to you, isn't it?

Joe: Sounds great. Then what?

43.jpg (12191 bytes)

Methos: Egypt.

Alexa: Isn't that romantic?

Joe: Well, he's certainly the man to take you.

Methos: Thanks, Joe.

Methos: [to Duncan] It's not long enough.

Duncan: It never is. You take it easy.

[The van drives away.]

49.jpg (11461 bytes) Joe: I don't know if they'll make it to Egypt.

Duncan: Doesn't matter. Even if she lives to be a hundred, he'll still have the pain of losing her.
