eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (FF + Dinosaur comics = best icon ever)

For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I've been working on various image stuff. As a result, I have a bunch of queries for people who remember tv better than I do.

1) Jack O'Neill tied up. The look: Black t-shirt, green bdu pants, collar, chains, arms held behind his back by a pole. The context: offworld? There are Jaffa involved, I think? And I think it's in season six or seven? Possibly? I know this one exists, I just can't find it.

2) I don't know that this one exists, but what the hey, it might. Do Gunn and Lindsey ever point guns or crossbows or other weapons at each other?

3) What would be the best HP film to go to, if I were looking for Snape, Draco, and Harry alone or foregrounded together in the same frame?

And a wild card:

4) What is your favorite (accidental or intentional) phallic visual gag?

For 3), maybe the scene in HP2 where Harry and Draco have the duel and Snape intervenes?

*is most intrigued by your visual projects*

The only one I've got anything for is 4) Robin Hood: Men in Tights, the love song in front of the sheet. It has a special place in my heart because it's the first phallic visual gag I actually got.

For unintentional phallic imagery, the one popping immediately to my mind is Captain Kirk cradling the broken off look!-this-is-totally-not-made-out-of-papier-maché stalactite/stalagmite in that s1 TOS episode with the scientist who lived in an underground cave where he'd resurrected ancient civilization android-making technology and made himself a hot sex toy practical research assistant.

that is one of my favourite episodes! where the scientist is like, "I couldn't love a machine!" and Majel Barrett, his fiance, is like, "Did you?"

Your icon wins the internet! \o/

I think that android Star Trek episode may have been the point where I realized that, whoa, TOS really is as kinky as everyone told me.

4) There's the pen in the dream in Lair of the White Worm?

It's a very psychoanalytic dream. The film is terrifying (but hilarious) cheese, especially for anthropologists--there's a Scottish archaeologist with a live mongoose in his sporran!

For (4), I can think of a few that I've, umm, used in vids myself :-). In A Little Less Conversation, there's a shot from Highlander of Methos unwrapping a sword and offering it to Duncan - it's kind of a "classic" HL image in vids, and it's from the episode Deliverance. Also in Conversation, there's a shot from ST III: The Search for Spock, where a large phallic rock erupts out of the planet towards the end of the film.

Also, in the episode You're Welcome from Angel, there's kind of a hilarious moment where Lindsay's tiny dagger turns into a huge sword - I used it in Don't Cha.

Oh, a couple that I haven't used and that are unquestionably intentional - the Disney movie Mulan. At the end, the big battle between the evil guy and Mulan. The hero initially attacks the big evil guy, but he's carrying only a teeny dagger against evil guy's big sword, and he's defeated. Then evil guy comes after Mulan with his big sword - and she snaps her circular fan around it and yanks it away. It's freaking amazing.

Also, earlier in the film, there's a scene where Mulan wins a contest where the soldiers have to climb a large pole with two swinging circular weights strapped to their arms. The men keep climbing with the weights dangling, and fall. Mulan ties the weights in a knot and uses them as a sort of lever to pull herself up. Again, no doubt this was deliberate.

Hee - glad I could help! Oh, and don't forget the snake demon from Buffy's Reptile Boy!

Can't help on the others, but:
1) This is the sort of thing I'd remember, and it's definitely not S6 or 7. There are only a few episodes it could be, and none of them have all the details. Abyss- Jack's not tied, and also not in BDUs, Metamorphasis (the Nirr'ti ep), not tied. And The Other Guys, again, not tied- the Goa'uld in that one uses a force field. There are a couple of times that *Teal'c* is tied with his hands held behind him that way, but not Jack that I can recall. Is it possible that you're thinking of the Atlantis, S2 epidode "Condemned"? I believe Sheppard's team is tied that way in that one.

Happy birthday :)

Do you still want that Sentinel ep ripped? I'm sorry, I found the bit of paper I'd noted it on the other day, I'd totally forgotten.

4) Um, I don't entirely know what you mean, but I always think rockets are funny.
