Anyway, last time I read House of Cards I went through and marked all the really bad dialogue, and thought I'd post a line here on occasion to see if you guys agreed. So here we go:
Gambit to Purdey: "There's only one up the spout, old girl." and "All right now, sweethear. Mrs. Milner is at home to guests." And the real kicker.
Because we all know how often Gambit calls Purdey things like "old girl" and "Sweetheart."
Gambit: "You'd make me a wonderful wife some day."
Purdey: "I couldn't stand the strain. You're in a high-risk occupation."
Erm, that's not Purdey/Gambit banter. That's bad drama school emoting.
What do you guys think?
