Supa Swank

By srg-alias aka SReneeG
Eat your heart out Q, even 007 can't deny that Marshall J. Flinkman (that's with an F remember) has the best gadgets and spygear around, not to mention his supafly style and sense of humor. Where would our favorite snoops be without the lipstick/camera, Artful Dodger or cell phone/gun? The genious of Marshall's little goodies has saved our CIA assets countless times. His purpose on the show is often classified as the "comic relief", but Marshall is much more than that. He might not have the confidence of Jack or courage of Syd (although his limited fieldwork seems to have wet his appetite), but his heart is always in the right place and his brain is a lifesaver. I think we've chatted about some of his funny lines before (I’d love to, baby, but I’m married) hehe, but what are some of your favorite "Flinkman Specials" or situations where his quick thinking saved the day?
Thanks to Jenn for sending the pic that inspired the article. :)

Our super agents are great in teh field, but it seems like Marshall is always the one to save the day. There have been so many times where they have called him in a panick and he gets on his computer and saves the day. actually it seems like in almost every episode something along these lines happens.

I think I love the best when he and Syd went undercover and he was the rich Texan at the casino!!! FUNNY!!

Oh I forgot about that mission, that was great! They were so hilarious as a couple hehe. I loved the x-ray glasses he made Syd in season 3 so she could tell who had plastic surgery. It was hilarious listening to Vaughn's commentary on what she was seeing (think those are real?)

Yep that was a great "flinkman." He so predictable, like with the sneeze under the desk. He know he's going to do it, but even when he does you don't think that it is written in. You think it is a Marshal thing to do.

My favorite "flinkman" is in season four, specifically episode Tuesday, where he goes undercover to inflitrate the guy in the 3rd faction and he's trying to play cool by using Jack's name. That was hilarious. I just wish we could have seen Jack's reaction when he said: "I'm Jack...Jack Bristow." Man that was good.

I love it when Marshall went solo to rescue Syd in Cuba. His Spanish was so funny, and I loved it when he was working in that little store and the lady was staring at him, making him nervous.

yeah that episode (Tuesday) is one of my favorites from season 4. I love his little minicooper, it's so...Marshall!
