A conversation I wish I hadn’t listened in on.
We were raised together. We played together…
Neil Patrick Harris’ family
Minor spoilers for 2x04.
For all that this show is about true love, and even though it’s been established that parent/child love is also true love, or at the very least important… I can count on one hand the number of times a parent has said the words “I love you” to their child. The first was Emma to Henry, when she thought he was dead, when she broke the curse. Regina said it to Henry shortly after. The second was by Moe to Belle, as he was sending her off to have her memories erased against her will. Those are the only ones I can think of. (We have seen young Regina say “I love my mother” to Rumpel, and “Of course I love him” to Emma, and she said it to her father’s grave, but these weren’t said directly to the person.)
Snow and Charming never said it to Emma, not when she was a baby about to be put into the wardrobe, and not now that they remember. Rumpel never said it to Bae. Geppetto never said it to Pinnocchio (this is what first made me notice it, because if I was sticking my kid in a magic box, possibly never to be seen again, the one thing I would want to say is I LOVE YOU). Emma said it to Henry only once (though that’s understandable, the girl has issues). Jefferson never said it to Grace. Charming’s mother never said it. Granny never said it to Ruby. Cora sure as hell never said it. Yet all of the canon couples have said it to one another multiple times (Snow/Charming, Belle/Rumpel, Milah said it to Hook, etc etc).
It’s very clear that these parents DO love their children very much. Yet they never say it, while romantic couples say “I love you” often, sometimes just for the sake of saying it. I don’t know if the writers/producers are doing it on purpose or what the reason for it might be, but… it just strikes me as odd. And bad, to be honest. A lot of people complained in the first season that the show portrayed birth/natural parents as good, and step/adoptive parents as bad. Obviously the show understands and addresses the importance of family and parent/child relationships. And yet….
I am legit crying right now, oh my goddess.
“How come he don’t want me, man?”
From what I’ve heard, Will Smith’s father actually left him. This wasn’t entirely scripted. Will went off on his own rant, and the hug at the end was genuine.
His character was just supposed to shrug off his dad leaving again and he starts to but then Will goes off script. That whole speech is coming entirely from him. The hug at the end is also genuine, actor to actor not character to character.
reblog every fucking time
One of the few genuine moments of television history, and one of the few moments that really get to me.
one of the best sitcoms ever
Familyyyyyy <3 <3 <3
GIMME A DADDY-DAUGHTER BONDING MOMENT WHILE HE TEACHES HER TO US A SWORD PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
Jared Gilmore and Josh Dallas filming a scene on the set of Once Upon A Time (Season 2)
Just playing swords with grandpa.
Are we sure they’re not just chillin’ around on set?
PS: SO ADORBS.
My favorite story out of this is Malia, when she was 4, she had a little dance thing. Well, Michelle was gone that weekend so I’m taking her to ballet. And I get her in her little leotard and her little stuff. I did her hair, put it in a little bun.
We get to the dance studio and one of the mothers there right away comes up to Malia – she thinks she’s out of earshot of me and she says, ‘Sweetie, do you want me to redo your hair?’ And Malia who she’s 4 says, ‘Yes please, this is a disaster’ you know, she didn’t want to hurt daddy’s feelings.
Oh my God I am dying of the cute.
As excited as we all are for a Rumbelle reunion, I’m also really excited for the prospect of a happy ending for Belle and her father in FTL. I don’t honestly believe he would have hurt her, unless the Evil Queen somehow manipulated him into it. The only scene with Belle and Maurice together communicates such understanding and affection to me that I believe his safety was a major factor in her decision to go with Rumple in the first place. That she would sacrifice everything to keep him safe says that, once upon a time, they were happy. And I hope in the end they will be again.

Curious if this guy is a troll. He says he likes Nickelback.
This should be pamphlet. Handed out at polls and such.
I want this on a post-it to put at gas stations.
two gay fathers and son
And a beautiful Black family. <3
How about, “And a beautiful family. <3”? Why choose to add “black”? I didn’t even register their skin color until I read that comment..
No, its not that simple. We live in a world where Black men are universally demoralized for being homophobic and absent fathers. This picture simultaneously defies both stereotypes and its important to recognize that. In addition, they’ll face erasure for being black in the LGQBT community and for being queer in the Black community. Erasing their race isn’t equality, its just dismissive of their specific struggles.
Also, little face is adorbs.
