You know that scene in "The Fugitive" where Tommy Lee Jones follows Harrison Ford into that tunnel in that dam? And Harrison Ford is trapped, and he yells out, "I didn't kill my wife!" and Tommy Lee Jones replies, "Ah don't care."
You know that scene?
Well, last night at bedtime when Ramona was trapped and told me for the umpteenth time that she wasn't tired ...
I said it.
Because it was Tommy Lee Jones' job to track Harrison Ford down, regardless of his opinion on Richard Kimble's guilt or innocence, and regretfully it was my job to tell Ramona to be quiet and stop talking whether she was sleepy or not.
Yeah, Tommy Lee and mommies ... we always get the job done.
