I'm really more and more glad I gave this show another chance. Watching "Blue Highway" now. This cracked me up:
SCENE: A chop-shop auto-parts yard at night during an FBI raid, Julian McMahon as John; Robert Davi as Bailey.

A car horn blares and a bright light shines in their faces. Bailey ducks and reaches for his gun. John pulls his own weapon and steps forward, aiming at the light shining in their eyes.

JOHN: Federal officer. Don't move!

(The flashlight tilts up toward a man's face, casting shadows from underneath. It is EMMETT, a homeless man, who stares uncertainly into space and appears not entirely present in the world the rest of us share.)

EMMETT: (slowly) Don't shoot.

JOHN: Then don't move.

(JOHN tucks his gun away and kneels down to search EMMETT.)

BAILEY: What are you doing here?

EMMETT: (slowly) I'm Emmett.

JOHN: Got any weapons on you, Emmett?

EMMETT: I got a frog in my pocket.

(A frog ribbits.)

JOHN, turning to look over his shoulder at BAILEY, deadpan: So you do.

Oh, I always did like Julian McMahon in that show. I had bigtime Sam issues and had to stop watching, though; however, that is not why I'm here. I was struck by the absolute beauty of your icon, and before I read the post I sort of assumed it was a new DH icon. Except then I *really* looked at it and noticed it was Julian McMahon, but. He seems to have stolen DH's nose. Maybe? There's just something extremely Rodneyish about him there. The eyes? The eyebrows? Or, I might be crazy. Maybe it's just the pose.

All right then, carry on.
