TV Quote of the Day (‘Northern Exposure,’ on the ‘Things That Ignite Passion in the Human Heart’)

“Most of you have been where I am tonight. The crash site of unrequited love. You ask yourself, How did I get here? What was it about? Was it her smile? Was it the way she crossed her legs, the turn of her ankle, the poignant vulnerability of her slender wrists? What are these elusive and ephemeral things that ignite passion in the human heart? That's an age-old question. It's perfect food for thought on a bright midsummer's night.”—Northern Exposure, “Only You,” Season 3, Episode 2, original air date Sept. 30, 1991, teleplay by Ellen Herman, directed by Bill D'Elia 

In a time of year marked by unrelenting heat, I thought it might be nice to focus on something else associated with “a bright midsummer's night.”
