Scene Cap la la la


Just in case- "Yes, I want to marry you."
Okay, I posted this pic for 2 reasons. One, FINALLY Syd and Vaughn are engaged! Finally! After much debate on the plane ride into Svogda, Syd tells Vaughn to ask her on the beach. But, with the dangers lurking around every corner, Sydney can't risk it. She runs back to Vaughn and says YES!! YAHOO!
Second, this look is my favorite Syd-ism of all time! The "look-away smile." Sydney usually does this when she is overly-emotional. She drops eye contact to gather her thoughts, contain herself. She did the same when Vaughn informed her of her missing 2 years and she also did it when she asked Will to stop looking into Danny's death. The mannerism shows her vulnerable side, she lets down her front, exposes herself. I love it because it's cute and girlie and sometimes we don't see that side of Sydney Bristow.
Can you give me another example of a Syd-ism?

I love the way Syd closes a door shes just snuck into. She sort of does a 180 and gets really close to the door to make sure it closes quietly, then snaps back around to finish her mission. I noticed it the first time i ever watched Alias. I hope it makes sense and that it qualifies as a Syd-ism.

I love the triumphant look she has after thumping someone with one of her round-house kicks. She gazes down to make sure her opponant stays there, lips pursed, eyes narrow, fists and arms straight down with perfect posture.

The body language says, "Yeah, that's right. I just stomped you, and if you know what's good for you, you'll stay down."

Love her!

she does it in season three in the korean jail....

Vaughn starts to explain how their not gonna make it out of there and that she's the only one and she looks at him, says dont, looks away with that smile, with tears, contains her self, than turns back and says "vaughn.... i know"

i love her - i love him - i love them.

I love it when Syd is girlie! She did that in the flirting corner scene too! It’s lovely to see her feminine and vulnerable side. It certainly helps convey the idea that women can be feminine as well as kick ass!

Oh one of my favorite Syd-ism is when she puts her hand on her forehead like when she told Dixon the truth about SD-6. Oh and I love the look on her face right before she says some great and piercing line or kicks someone’s ass. For example right before she tells Sloane he has been a plague on her life or right before she smashes him against the table or before she shots the guys in the car in her sexy red dress in season three or before she kicks the guy in season five for talking to her baby about Vaughn! I love Syd!

Let's do some Vaughn-isms next! I have plenty of those! If you want pictures GS I have some really good ones!!!

I love when she touches her forhead as she gets overly emotional. This first came to my attention during her first meeting with Irina in the Rotunda holding cell.
I also love how she smiles in order to hold back tears. It's like a cover... she's trying to be strong, but just cant. The tears swell, and she smiles big (She even did it in "13 Going On 30" before Mark Ruffalo's character gets married).
Finally, the hair tuck. Thats a classic Sydney / Irina-ism.

Oh I forgot about the hair tuck! That is a great Syd-ism and I love that she shares it with Irina.

That's too funny Liz! I also love Syd's hair-tuck, it's a very girly thing and also when she puts her hand on her forehead when emotions get too heavy for her. Don't know if this is a Syd-ism, but it's great when she does the calm-anger thing, like in The Prophecy when she looks the guard square in the eyes and calmly says "you get out of my way, or I'll make you get out of my way". No shouting, just the hint that she can totally kick your ass if you push it.

lhaaheim said...

Oooo I love that blunt declaration of her ass kicking abilities too! Good one SRG!

I know isn't that article cool! I was like "wait they can really do this! For a real life Rambaldi!" So often Alias reflects the myths of reality, it's nice to see it the other way around.

Kiki said...

Oh SRG, you are alive! YAHOO!

That is a great Syd-ism. I love it! She's the same way when she yells at Vaughn, contained but harsh, her lips pierced.
