The Adorableness of Mariska & Chris

So, I picked up the TV Guide with Law & Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni on the cover, and read this adorable little exchange with them.

TV Guide: Fans want to see Benson and Stabler hook up. Are you pushing for that as well?
Hargitay: They want us together bad. He's such the father figure and I'm such the mother figure, so all the kids want mommy and daddy to get together. It's so sweet. But we don't want to turn the show into a soap opera.
Meloni: That'll be the day that the shark tank has been jumped. You can't have it.
Hargitay:I love that our chemistry is palpable and that everyone feels it. It's a gift. And it's been that way since the day we met on and off the screen, we've always had the same sense of humor. The minute we met, we clicked.

TV Guide: Do you guys hang out outside of work?
Hargitay: We've been to other countries.

TV Guide: Do tell...
Hargitay: We went to Cuba for Thanksgiving. Hawaii for Christmas...

TV Guide: With your respective spouses?
Hargitay: Yeah.
Meloni: But don't think we didn't [do it].
Hargitay: [Laughs] We [did it] twice. We got that out of the way, and the show has been great since.

[blah blah blah, other stuff about the show, blah blah blee.]

TV Guide: Maybe your characters could hook up in the last episode.
Meloni: It's much more interesting if they don't hook up. The idea of it is always so much better than the reality.
Hargitay: I told him I'm not leaving the show until I get to make out with him.


Okay, three things. One, these guys are freaking ADORABLE together. It's nice to have the actors on one of my favorite shows able to even stand each other, let alone have such a nice rapport. Usually, it's the exact opposite. (*cough*Gilmore Girls*cough*BtVS*cough*ahem*) Two? OMG I've read WAY too much RPS for my brain to just let that go. They were so totally flirting together! You know they were. Three? I don't care if it would be jumping the shark (which, yeah, it would be) - I WANNA SEE BENSON & STABLER HOOK UP, DAMMIT!!! Come on!!! Maybe in a dream sequence or something. Anything! I just wanna see them kiss.

I really loved that article. They're so awesome. Also, I would also love to see them hook up, damn it.
That is so freaking CUTE. I saw an ep of SVU with Amanda Seyfried in it (Lilly!) and I was just in love with Benson and Stabler. I should probably start watching the re-runs now. *g*

But now I'm intrigued...Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson don't get along? Or are you talking about the entire GG cast?

Oooh, I remember hearing about that episode, but I still haven't caught it yet. Gah!

I've heard different accounts, but from the interviews I've read, they seem to have a very chilly relationship. My general understanding is that they don't *hate* each other, but there's a lot of tension because Lauren wanted her character to get back with Rory's dad. Which, no. That's just not the way it's supposed to work out!

Yeah, it was a two-parter too, which sucked because I didn't get to find out what happened. So I *really* need to watch this show now. ;)

Lauren wanted her character to get back with Rory's dad

Ohhhhhh. I've only seen through 3.05 and I wouldn't mind if Lorelai got back with Chris. BUT. Only if Luke was absolutely beyond all recall out of the picture. Heh. That's sad, though, that their relationship is "chilly". They seem to have such a natural, fun chemistry!

Although that's kind of a stupid reason to hate someone in the grand scheme of things? I'm kind of charmed that Lauren cares about her character so much, that she actually has problems with the actor playing her non-favoured love interest. So in one sense, Lauren Graham is totally unprofessional, but I'm choosing to love her even more for her awesome devotion to Lorelai.

Of course, as you say, she's also totally misguided, because Luke and Lorelai are like, fucking meant to be, bitch, so don't even think about messing with it.
Aww, they're so cute. I love them both. And I *adore* your icon.

Oh yeah...hi! *waves* I'm sunshine95 on SF.
Bwah! That was awesome. ::loves::

I kinda like that they'll never officially hookup, even though yes, it would be rather interesting. I just kinda like that with all that has disappointed them in their lives, they still have one another to depend on.

Yeah, i watch the reruns tooo much.
I started watching the show in reruns, actually. I'd heard of it, but never bothered to tune in until it came on the USA network.

It's so sweet, isn't it? Although, I really hate that Stabler's wife is always so jealous of Benson. I bet that's why she left him. Stupid bitch!

*ahem*
SO MUCH FLIRTATION OMG OMG NO WAY!

If you dont' write some Benson/Stabler or RPF I will cry a lot.

Also, who in BTVS had bad repor? I must know!
