Thanks. Yeah, the older I get, the more I realize there are
things you can do with silence you can't do with words, though I still
love the form of the speech. There was a lot of counterpoint in this
episode, a tool I'm still playing with as a writer; eventually I'll
figure out how to really use it properly. (Though there's an
interesting scene up later this season using another kind of ironic
counterpoint which I think works pretty well.)
