Flash In The Pan Babes of the 90's

(Pace, LMC, of course)

Nancy Travis, the misunderstood mate of Mike Meyers in So I Married An Axe Murderer. Best attribute: a sort of blonde Andie MacDowell look - heavy brows, piercing eyes and tight cheek muscles. Worst attribute: attempting to break out in a Mike Meyers vehicle. Resistance is futile. Head! Pants! Now!

Travis doesn't seem to have done much since then. On the other hand, at least she didn't wind up as la Femme Psycho like Amanda Plummer, who played her axe-wielding sister in the movie.

YIPS from Steve: Didn't she play Ted Danson's love interest in the last season of Becker?

Call me crazy, but I was rather partial to that show. His misanthropic doctor was downright hilarious, as he constantly fought against the better angel of his nature. He reminded me so much of a buddy of ours from college who became a doctor (who was the inventor of the boot/waffle graph, a system by which you were to track the N times you hooked up in relation to the N times you vomitted from excess drinking. Plotting this on a graph would give a line, to which you were to know your "slope" ie the relative relationship between the two. "Healthy" was defined as a slope of 1--- right on a 45 degree angle, the sign you had attained Aristotelian balance. Twisted, totally twisted).

A blonde Andie MacDowell look... yes, that's what it was about her.

Personally, I prefer the blonde... not that the original MacDowell isn't worth a good hard ogling, of course.

Best cameo ever - Phil Hartman.

"My name is John Johnson, but everyone here calls me Vicki."

I adore that movie.

"I'm a human blanket!" is also a favorite quote.
