Without a Trace 4.09 "Freefall"

"He's not like me.  He's capable of commitment."
"You're married."
"And your point is?  [...]  He's the kind of guy who comes home for dinner."
     Oh, Jack.

Oh I knew Max looked familiar.  IMDb tells me he was the dad on Boy Meets World.

They finally added Elena to the credits.  (And I think she's right between Danny and Martin -- who gets that final "and" billing; is that new?  Fandom's gonna have a field day.  In that imploding kind of way.)

MEM gets first guest star billing.

Jack calls her "honey" in that first post-credits exchange.  "Old friends," my dad says.  Still feels weird to me.  I mean, I say things like that to people all the time, but I'm female; Jack's socialization doesn't read to me like one who calls female friends "honey."

"I know all the women from the office; I work there, remember?"
And of course the cheating hits extra-hard because of how we opened with Jack selling Max to MEM [yeah, her character's name totally escapes me].

After Martin gets knocked down the stairs and Danny is worried about him, that's the first time this season that I've actually seen the Danny/Martin that fandom seems so hung up on.

What is up with the music in CBS shows tonight?  "When you try your best but you don't succeed.  When you get what you want but not what you need."  That made no sense for the end of this episode.  [Though as my father pointed out after the show was over, the plot of the episode really didn't make much sense.]  "Lights will guide you home ... and I will try to fix you."  Okay, that did work as a closing.  I liked that rather a lot.

[Oh, and, could we never watch Jack walk ever again? He looked so stiff in that last scene walking to the office to comfort the wife. It was uncomfortable to watch.]

"Fix You" - Coldplay

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

High up above or down below
When you too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from the mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
