One of the things that sometimes occupies Maura’s hands is hand sanitizer.
So, @Drumchik84 is a hilarious individual and this conversation happened on Twitter:
@TheRainbowUhaul, who is also amazing, told me how Seasons 9 & 10 of Law & Order are being released on DVD. I said that I might need to rent them to screencap some Angie.
Drumchik84: Angie Harmon as Abbie Carmichael is fierce –plus- skirts. That is all.After that, every time I mentioned writing a post, Drumchik84 asked if it was about Maura and hand sanitizer. So, I can finally say yes to that question!
MormonLesbian: ‘Skirts’ may or may have not made me think, “Easy access”…
Drumchik84: Well…that explains why Maura’s always trying to get Jane in a dress…
MormonLesbian: Yeah, Maura did say that miniskirts are “liberating”…
Drumchik84: Which also explains her frequent use of hand sanitizer.
MormonLesbian: Oh… my… You… are hilarious, haha.
Drumchik84: Well it DOES explain it! *giggle*
Personally, I believe that Maura uses hand sanitizer before and after any… afternoon delight at work. Both for, well, obvious reasons…
I Kissed a GirlSo, in this scene, Maura is preparing for a little lovin' at work by using the hand sanitizer (conveniently located on Jane's desk for occasions like this...)
Meanwhile, Jane has been trying to figure out how to ditch her clingy beard, Jorge.
Jane: Maybe if I get fat, he’ll stop calling.Maura realizing what she just said...
Maura: I just think if you allow him to see all sides of you, then he’ll stop calling.
Jane's Face: Excuse me?!
(Note the wet fingers... *cough*)
Even Jett Jackson knows that Maura shouldn't have said that...
Jane's Face: Excuse me...
Maura: You know what, I just heard what that sounded like and that is… What I meant to say was that… Human beings have good and bad traits, you know. And you have, you know, some characteristics that are a little… not as… um…
(Note the wet hand...)
Maura: Wow, fudge clusters!
And Jane snatches the candy out of Maura’s hands.
Possible symbolism for other "yummy" treats that Maura won't be getting her hands on anymore?
Or... maybe not?
I'm Your Boogie ManIn this scene, Maura just spent the night at Jane's, but those ladies... insatiable. So, Maura's doing a little post-lovin' sanitizing. Because, you know, Maura is very wary and "doesn't cross-contaminate."
Also, Dean shows up again
(Please excuse me as I roll my eyes...)
And this happens:
Maura's Face: Yes, I did just tap that.
(Seriously, rewatch this scene... It isn't just a lucky screencap... She stares at it. 'Cause it's a good ass!) (P.S. Note Jane's face... very grumpy to be interrupted by Dean)
Dean talks to Jane, but he is fully aware that her girlfriend is only a few feet away...
...marking her territory and reminding him that she does, and just did, get with that.
So, there really is no point in him trying.
Yep, sanitizing away...
Dean and Jane run off to get some coffee...
Of course Maura doesn't care if Dean takes her girlfriend out for coffee. She just gave her something that's better than coffee... and by "better than coffee," I mean 'tuna.' (Oh, you Rizzles girls know what I'm talkin' 'bout...)
Jane's Face: I thought you wanted some post-lovin' cuddling and soft kissing in the morgue.
Seriously, Drumchik84, thank you so much, hon, for the brilliant idea! (You should all follow her Twitter because she's awesome like that!)
