A (odd) conversation with friend @mikedao today had us lamenting the lack of satisfying romance between Captain Picard and Dr. Crusher. This led to the INEVITABLE comparison between Picard and Bert from Mary Poppins. Both so madly in love with their women, yet destined to never act upon their feelings except in wincingly weird fanfics.
On second thought, I think I just winced. I'll be going now.
