Silent Dialog vs. Kalinda's Ice Cream
It's the best gig on TV vs. a 32nd flavor!
Kalinda's Ice Cream
The case for Silent Dialog
Can you even get your SAG card by sitting silently on a barstool and having all the action revolve around you? For 90-something episodes? The Lurian Morn (after Norm on Cheers) was a frequent customer at Quark's bar on Deep Space Nine. He also showed up on The Next Generation and Voyager, but despite being described as very social and a big talker, the man never uttered a word. Granted, it must have been tedious for the actor to have that special affects makeup applied every episode, but after that it was smooth sailing. Laryngitis, stuffy nose, hangover, tongue surgery? Not a problem!
The case for Kalinda's Ice Cream
I screamed, you screamed, we all screamed when the plotline involving Kalinda's husband Nick (which nobody asked for) took an unexpectedly adult turn at an ice cream parlor. The short version: Nick's backstory tidbits, Nick's fingers, Kalinda's tidbits, fingers in ice cream, Kalinda finishing her dessert. And scene.
