This is so obvious, but can you please spam it up with The Code caps as soon as you get your paws on the show? I'm looking forward to this, if I'll ever get to see it. And thank you for the great caps, you're the only source I've found (within US interweb boundaries) who does so. Super appreciated!!

Oh no worries however I won’t be capping it until I get the DVD but I reckon it will be available online at some point as it’s been sold to the US and the UK :)

Charlie Isaacs Caps: S01E04 Last Reasoning of Kings

Abby: There’s Cary Grant. You need to get dressed. 
Charlie: We’re not going to the Bohr dinner. 
Abby: Stick to physics. You have no future in comedy. 
Charlie: Yeah, well we might not have one on this hill, either. 
Abby: What happened? 
Charlie: Dr. Oppenheimer…he thinks I overstepped him. Christ, Akley must be distancing himself as we speak. I’ll probably end up in Frank Winter’s group with those other rejects. 
Abby: You know, my father wanted me to marry someone from east Egg, not east St. Louis. And I told him ‘I don’t care, Charlie’s a genius.’ The truth is, I don’t think you are a genius. I didn’t know what you were until we got here and I saw the way people everyone else calls geniuses look at you. Forget Oppenheimer. Forget Akley. They’re yesterday. And we are going to that party and we’re gonna fix everything with the man who’ll be running this place tomorrow. Hmm..we’re going.
Charlie: Okay.

Charlie: Abby, hi. Thought you went home. 
Abby: Charlie Isaacs report to me. 
Charlie: Abby, I have to get back, now if [she kisses him] Where is everyone?
Abby: They’re all at lunch, we have five minutes. [she pushes him up against the wall]
Charlie: Dr. Bohr is waiting [she unbuckles his pants] What has got into you?
Abby: They were hanging on every word. The ladies’ auxiliary, tell me about Bohr. The details. Where he’ll be living, what he’s gonna be working on.
Charlie: You know I can’t talk about work. 
Abby: Just give me some meat to throw to the wolves.
Charlie: Um, he’s got a theory on electron motion. 
Abby: Electron motion.
Charlie: Involving Planck’s constant. 
Abby: Planck’s constant.
Charlie: And the Thomas rotation. 
Abby: Oh, God. The Thomas rotation.

Charlie Isaacs Caps: S01E04 Last Reasoning of Kings

Bohr: [Charlie attempts to light his pipe] It’s bad luck to allow another man to light your pipe. 
Charlie: I’m sorry. [extends hand] Charlie Isaacs. You’re a hard man to find. 
Bohr: Isaacs, ya. You are the valet Bobby spoke of. 
Charlie: No, I’ll be showing you around campus. [to MPs] Fellas, excuse us. So um I worked with Everett at Harvard. My thesis on cosmology actually used your calculation of atomic nucleai…
Bohr: A kestrel [points to bird] with a hood on, wonderful. 
Charlie: Sir, um. 
——-
[Bohr and Frank converse]
Charlie: [interrupts] Dr. Bohr you and I have important business at the Thin Man office.
Bohr: Ya, just a moment Christopher. [to Frank] Good to see you, Frank.
Frank: Good to see you Neils.

Charlie: Ready to meet the gadget? 
[they meet applause]
Bohr: Would you ask these engineers to leave?
Charlie: Sir, they’ve prepared a detailed presentation on Thin Man.
Bohr: After my dance with the Nazis, I don’t relish the exuberance of crowds. 
——
Bohr: The last reasoning of kings. 
Charlie: I’m sorry. 
Bohr: Louis XIV, he had that stamped on his canon, it is a canon?
Charlie: Firing in on itself. 
Bohr: Wont spontaneous neutrons pre-detonate your fuel?
Charlie: Not so long as you fire the slugs at 3,170 feet per second. 
Bohr: Who deduced that?
Akley: [enters] Charlie did, actually. [INTERCOM: Charlie Isaacs report to the switchboard, emergency call for Charlie Isaacs] Go, I’ll take over. 
——
Charlie: The metallurgy and chemistry teams want to show you some tampers. 
Bohr: Frank Winter’s office is in this direction, correct? 
Charlie: Implosion isn’t really part of the tour. It’s more of a backup plan. Dr. Bohr, we really…it’s just a back-up plan. 
——
Charlie: Dr. Borh would like me to walk him through the implosion design. 
Helen: You?
Charlie: Sir. 
——
Charlie: Jesus. The geometry, it’s like a star swallowing itself. 
Bohr: It’s impressive. But do you think it is big enough? 
Charlie: Big enough? 
Oppenheimer: [enters] Hate to cut the tour short Neils but would you join me in my office? 
Bohr: Of course, Bobby. 
Oppenheimer: Did you not understand your instructions? 
Charlie: He insisted on seeing the implosion group’s work, sir. I tried to stop…
Oppenheimer: Your services are no longer needed. 
—-
Charlie: Dr. Bohr, Br Bohr. I don’t understand. You just got here. 
Bohr: You have all shown me such great hospitality, but I’ve had too much wine and I fear I’m not much for dinner theatre. 
Charlie: You’re not joining the project? So what is this, just a USO tour? 
Bohr: When soldiers lose morale, they get pin-up girls. You get a tired old man with a pipe. 
Charlie: But we need you. Sir, we’re trying to end the war. 
Bohr: Earlier today I asked you, ‘is it big enough?’ 
Charlie: Is it big enough? Twenty kilotons, burn radius two miles wide. If you spotted a flaw in the math… 
Bohr: There was a chemist once in Germany. He made artificial fertiliser and when the last war came he thought perhaps I could fashion my work into a weapon. Some thought it to be so intolerable, it would discourage any future wars. But his legacy is a fog of chlorine gas that crept over Europe, and Africa and Asia. When I asked ‘is it big enough?’ I meant is it big enough that no sane person would ever dare to use it? 
Charlie: I don’t know.
Bohr: Good men invent bigger and more efficient methods for humankind to exterminate itself, hoping the world will lose hunger for horror. But our species seems to have an insatiable appetite. I’ve lost mine.

Charlie Isaacs Caps: S01E04 Last Reasoning of Kings

Secretary: His time is limited, no questions, no digressions, no jokes. 
Charlie: [sits] Such an honor to finally meet you, sir. 
Oppenheimer: [clears throat] Pulling you from ‘thin man.’ 
Charlie: I dunno what you’ve heard but um Dr. Akley has been very satisfied with my work. 
Oppenheimer: Reed Akley suggested it. You’ll be attending to our new arrival until further notice.
Charlie: Sir?
Oppenheimer: I don’t want him straying, you’ll keep him on the straight and narrow and show him only our finest work, understand? 
Charlie: Dr. Oppenheimer..
Oppenheimer: As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
Charlie: [jokes] Is that Knute Rockne? 
Oppenheimer: Proverbs. Akley believes you’re iron enough to keep our colleague on point. Hope he’s right. 
[Charlie gets up]
Secretary: These are your instructions, you’ll follow them to the letter, as you escort him around ‘the hill.’
Charlie: I’m sorry, who is ‘him?’

Q&A with Fans: Ashley & Rachel

Ashley: How important are secrets in every day life but wait a second, this is what I loved, can the average family truly function without secrets?
Rachel: That’s funny, I have a very similar one for you. I think that sometimes secrets can be very important. I’m not good at keeping them but I think, you know it’s the same thing about white lies or why it’s important. Sometimes they protect people. Like I wasn’t gonna tell you that you look kind of fat in that shirt but…I just did. [Giggles] I’m just kidding.
Ashley: In this shirt?
Rachel: Yes, I’m just kidding. It’s better than the white t-shirt.
Ashley: If I was, if I did look fat in this shirt.
Rachel: Yep. 
Ashley: You wouldn’t have told me before hand?
Rachel: Well it might have sparred your feeling before we came…
Ashley: to shoot. I couldn’t have changed my shirt?
Rachel: That’s true, see it works both ways. I don’t know, I can”t think of a secret. I guess it depends on who you are too because some people value honesty. Personally, I’d much rather be told the truth all the time even if it’s difficult to hear then…I can’t think of a situation where I wouldn’t want to know and deal with it, rather be lied to. I think it breaks trust.

Q&A with Fans: Rachel & Ashley

Ashley: What aspect of Abby’s personality will stand out most to Manhattan viewers?
Rachel: Ooh that’s a really good question.
Ashley: Isn’t it.
Rachel: Yeah, is that your favourite one?
Ashley: [interjects] Wasn’t that kind. [Rachel giggles] Wasn’t that kind?
Rachel: Thank you. Mine was really good too.
Ashley: Yep. 
Rachel: Um no I think that at a time when uh [Ashley looks for his cup and takes a sip] I think that Abby is uh very head strong and stubborn spirited at a time when that was not necessarily encouraged in woman and I think it helps her and hurts her in this show.
Ashley: That’s nice.
Rachel: Thanks.

Anonymous asked:

Can I ask what you think about Manhattan so far? Do you like it?

I’m really enjoying Manhattan it’s wonderfully character driven. Unsurprisingly I love Charlie and Abby they intrigue me, Ashley is doing a great job.

I’ve also recently travelled to Hawaii and visited Pearl Harbor and went out to the Arizona memorial and so many years later you can see the sunken ship with oil in the water and when you see all the names on the wall, it’s such a somber experience. So knowing that that attack was a catalyst to the events portrayed in Manhattan is just fascinating for a foreigner like me and puts things in perspective.

So yeah I sure do.

Charlie Isaacs Caps: S01E03 The Hive

Abby: [FROM KITCHEN] There are one hundred and forty-seven different extensions on the hill. I might not have your head for numbers but I already know half of them. You can quiz me. [enters room]  What did you do at work today? It’s a trick question! If somebody asked that on the phone, I’d have to cut in. [Charlie murmurs and looks disinterested] Hello? 
Charlie: Sorry. 
Abby: Are you alright? [DOOR KNOCK] 
Charlie: It’s the dinner hour, can you tell the ladies of the welcome wagon that they’re not welcome.
Abby: [answers door] Dr. Akley. 
Akley: Oh please, call me Reed. [Charlie gets up and walks to door] Oh looks like home in here already. 
Abby: Oh.
Akley: May I borrow your husband for a moment, please. 
Abby: Yes, of course. 
——
Akley: I understand we had a little detonation in the lad today. Those boys have a lot of bluster, but you certainly did a number on them. Nothing irreparable, I imagine you’ll apologise. [Charlie nods] You have a long road ahead, Charlie. You’ve only just arrived. 
Charlie: Is that why you gave me an unsolvable problem? Some kind of freshman hazing ritual. 
Akley: I gave you the velocity distribution problem because I think you’re the only man here who’s capable of solving it. You probably spent your whole life surrounded by people who weren’t smart enough to recognise how smart you are but I do. It’s the reason why I brought you here. You are a once in a generation mind. 
Charlie: Thank you, sir. 
Akley: But I know someone even smarter than you. When I met him he was twenty-five years old and he was already re-imagining quantum mechanics. And at thirty he was a leading light in our field , and now at forty he could end this war once and for all.
Charlie: Oppenheimer.
Akley: Werner Heisenberg. He’s the world’s most brilliant scientific mind, and he’s running Hitler’s bomb project. Never forget Charlie, that is the man you are competing with.

Charlie Isaacs Caps: S01E03 The Hive

Lancefield: Charlie, join us at the PX?
Scientist 2: Or are you gonna keep pondering the mysteries of your naval. 
Charlie: I have leftovers, thanks. 
Scientist 1: We can set up a scholarship fund if your wife’s not giving you enough lunch money. 
Charlie: At least then you could say you achieved something today. 
Scientist 2: You haven’t written on that board in two days. 
Charlie: Physics is ninety percent thinking, nine percent writing, and one percent talking. I’ve never met so many one percenters in my life. 
Lancefield: [laughs] For the last three months whilst you’ve been making your name writing school papers and eating crackerjacks at Fenway we’ve been stuck in his desert shit hole working six days a week. Now I know another tortured genius who pisses on everyone from his high horse. He’s got an office in the old grounds keeper’s shed outback. If you’re not gonna join this group maybe you should go share your leftovers with Frank Winter. Hmm?
Charlie: You want me to join the group? [gets up] Fine. [walks over to blackboards] [to Scientist] How long you been working on this for, a week? [starts making corrections] I’ve known fellas like you two vacuous, the empty space between stars. [walks to other blackboard, to scientist] Two weeks? [makes corrections] See, there is no group. There’s Reed Akley and there’s me. And the biggest mystery [walks over to black board and looks at it] I’ve been pondering since I got here? [continuing to make corrections] Is what the hell the rest of you been doing for the last three months.
