Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.
#jim’s face though #his worldview’s been rocked #wait?? #bones?? #you don’t just like people out of the blue it takes time and effort?? #and months of sleeping on the floor outside your room after you’ve locked them out for the fifth time because ‘some of us are doctors jim’ #’some of us have exams in the morning jim’ #’some of us don’t want to be woken up at 2am by your drunk self trying to take over my bed jim’ #i thought what we had was special?? #what do you mean you like him?? #bones?? BONES?? #and the rest of the film is just bones comfortingly stabbing jim with hyposprays to remind him that yes bones really does love him best
if you don’t love the movie the fifth element we can never be friends

kristen loves women and she doesn’t take shit
It’s wonderful how much of this game she is not playing.
andy my daddy found out you’ve had pain in your back for over three years and no doctors were able to help you, and is extremely horrified.
“WHAT DO THEY MEAN THEY CAN’T FIND OUT WHAT’S WRONG WITH HER BACK?!”
and then i told him you have a numb leg and his response was a mix of these:
andy my daddy says he’s getting the mri next week
if they find out what’s wrong with him and fix it, i’m gonna need you to come out here to get checked out
cause my daddy says that i’m not allowed to fedex the doctor to you
