I would betray all of you in the Hunger Games
There was a guard on the ferry. He eyed her nervously as she led the horse aboard, and then grinned when he saw what he thought were stripes that didn’t really mean much.
"Morning, miss!" he said cheerfully.
Oh, well … time to start. Polly marched in front of the puzzled man.
"Are you trying to be smart?" she demanded, inches from his face.
"That’s ‘Sergeant,’ mister!" said Polly. "Let’s try again, shall we? I said, are you trying to be smart?"
Polly leaned until her nose was an inch from his.
The grin faded. This was not a soldier on the fast track to promotion.
"Huh?" he managed.
"If you are not trying to be smart, mister, you’re happy to be stupid!" shouted Polly. "And I’m up to here with stupid, understand?""
I’m sorry you are dead
I liked you

You know, Fitz being the butt of every joke used to be funny. Like it was sort of harmless teasing showing Fitz as kind of a cute awkward dork, because it just poked at his social skills which are kind of awkward.
Now it just seems kinda sad and mean with each increasing episode, since now they’re always framed as cutting at the one thing that defines Fitz: His smarts and that they make him useful to the team. It’s like, Trip’s not just taking his friend, but also taking Fitz’s role of being the person who “knows stuff”, so it’s gone from funny to depressing.
And the double meaning conversation with him and Coulson and then him and Simmons at the end, so many feels. :(
no but like do you understand how significant it is
for fitz to be able to see clearly that trip is not the problem
he is resistant to change, he knows it, and he acknowledges it, he acknowledges that the friction between himself and trip is on him
