Rizzoli & Isles

Rizzoli & Isles 2.01 “We Don’t Need Another Hero” Subtexty Recap (2/2)

Back at Jane’s office, McBeard comes to say goodbye. His leave is over. See ya! Jane is disappointed because he made a good beard, but there will be others, probably. And anyway, here comes Maura!


Maura looks at the card Jane was reading, made by a kid who thinks Jane is a hero. She tells Jane that heroes are social deviants. Jane’s like, “He’s leaving back to Afghanistan.” And Maura’s like, “Oh. Good. I mean, sorry.”

Then Jane forgets all about him and thinks instead about how she totally wrestled a grenade out of a crazy guy’s hand.

Jane: I was so scared, Maura. But I did it anyway.

Maura: That’s the definition of a hero.

Jane: Who’s a social deviant.

Maura: That’s not a bad thing.


Jane: Right. A non-girly, social deviant.

I’m not even going to say it.

Maura’s just nodding away, like, “Yeah, that sounds about right. Can I boost your immune system now?”

Jane, resigned, I think, to being – okay, I will say it – a flaming homosexual, gets up. And Maura’s like, “Can I touch you? Pretty pretty please?”


Maura: Take a deep breath. Any pain?

Jane: I’m back!


Maura: You know, I was pretty sure that it was psychosomatic.

Jane: It was so not psychosomatic.

Maura: No, I think it was.

Jane: You think? So you were guessing?


Maura: No, no… well, I can think! I can consider…I can … conclude…

Jane: That’s guessing! (Opening the door for Maura)You guessed! (sing-song voice) Dr. Isles gue-essed…

Maura: I did not.

Jane: Did too.
