Derek Reese Teaches Good Hygiene

On Monday, we were awarded two full hours (well, not quite full because of the ads) of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles." During one scene, Derek Reese is shown brushing his teeth. Sarah Connor says, "You've been at that for 20 minutes." Derek says nothing.

My theory is that when you're a resistance fighter in the future, you don't often get a chance to brush your teeth and clean the rat meat out of your gums. You get used to walking around with the aftertaste of whatever you ate three days ago in your mouth. So now, finally, Derek's got some time to himself, and access to highly specialized instruments for oral health. Why wouldn't he make up for lost brushing time? It makes me appreciate that I (for the most part) can brush my teeth whenever I want.

I'll bet all the little kids who watch Terminator will start to brush more often!
