(Adapted entirely from the NCIS: Los Angeles fifth season episode “The Frozen Lake”, written by series writer Dave Kalstein)
The thing you want the most in the world is in the middle of a frozen lake. It’s just sitting right there surrounded by ice, completely out of reach. And you want it so bad that you’ll do anything to get it. But if your heart takes over, it will destroy you in the end. You'll start to think you’re fast enough to go out there and grab it before the ice cracks. Then before you know it you’re standing on the ice and it’s falling apart around you. There is one way to cross a frozen lake, the only way: Do not run. Walk slowly. Look at everything. Take your time. Wait for each other.
