Brown Betty and White Tulip

Still watching Fringe and liking it more and more. There were two so interesting episodes on this week's disk.

One was Brown Betty ...

The episode begins with Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) [Harvard scientist released from an insane asylum to help the FBI] smoking his own strain of marijuana called "Brown Betty" while Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) [FBI agent] attempts to find his son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), who disappeared at the end of the previous episode after learning Walter stole him from a parallel universe. Because Dunham's sister Rachel (Ari Graynor) is unavailable, she brings her niece Ella (Lily Pilblad) to the lab for Walter and Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) to look after. To pass the time, Walter tells Ella a detective noir story in which Olivia is a private investigator.

At one point in the story Walter tells the little girl, Olivia the detective visits the fictional Walter's lab, where he shows her his inventions: bubble gum, flannel pajamas, rainbows, and singing corpses :) ...



But an earlier episode made more of an impression on me - White Tulip. Peter Weller (RoboCop/Buckaroo Banzai) played a scientist who masters time travel so he can go to the past to save his girlfriend from a fatal car accident. Walter tries to persuade Weller's character from changing the timeline by telling him of how he had stolen the child Peter from a parallel universe when his own son, this universe's version of Peter, had died. Walter said that through his guilt he had come to believe in God and had asked God to forgive him, showing that forgiveness with a white tulip. Weller's character tells Walter God doesn't exist and he goes ahead with his time travel plans, but with some changes - he doesn't save his girlfriend but instead decides to die with her, and before he goes, he has an envelope delivered to Walter containing a white tulip.

"IT" is great that YA believe in U>S gods Crystal and there's time when we godly cells wish that Victor's so called spiritual reality 2% cells that are left would not force our hand NOW.

We've even taken "ONE" of his so called DNA cells to when His Jesus walked our world that we "Transhuminis tics" have created. YA! We took that cell in our time machine and showed him, her, OK! We must admit that we gods don't truly know what sex that cell was but long story short, we showed "IT" that life was back to normal after Jesus died. Peter went back to his old Ways of fishing and swimming in the Nude and his friends just kept teasing him about how small his peter really was just like the days of old and then some other gods disguised as Jesus con vinced Victor's cell that HE did really exist and as a Christian, YA probably know the rest. Trust "ME", "ME" and "ME" that "IT" really was nothing but smoke and mirror magic just like OZ was and still is and....

And YA say sinner vic?

High Victor! "I" was just telling crystal about some of the movies that you've seen NOW!
