This is an Avengers blog (British TV show, not the superheroes). Expect anything to do with John Steed, Emma Peel, Cathy Gale, Patrick Macnee, Diana Rigg, and Honor Blackman. A bit of The New Avengers, 1960s/70s things, and a smattering of classical film. I pretty much cover my own interests du jour, but welcome requests for gifs, photosets, screencaps, and fanfiction. In fact, I love requests! I try to keep my commentary balanced, but I do have my (sometimes strong) opinions about characters, episodes, and relationships, and I will express them, sometimes in language you might not appreciate. I always welcome respectful, friendly debate. All fanfiction by celluloidbroomcloset: Creative Commons License

Cathy: You’re a cynic!

Steed: And you’re an idealist!

Cathy regularly accuses Steed of being a cynic - he distrusts anyone who does not have an apparent angle.  The show does not always prove him right, either, although there are moments when his cynicism is probably justified. In this case, though, he actually tries to help the man trying to kill him. So perhaps Cathy is bringing out his basic humanity, or at least pointing out that maybe he needs to start tempering his attitude.  

He also practically throws a fit at her at one point and tries to beat up a clown.  There’s that.
