From the popular CBS TV series NCIS: Los Angeles, Season 6, Episode 6 "Seal Hunter"
In this episode, the durian was the object of curiosity in the opening scene:
02:21m (Opening scene. Deeks poking a durian with a dinner knife)
Kensi: What's that?
Deeks: Durian..King of fruits..so hot right now.
Kensi: Why is it hot?
Deeks: Since the Garden of Eden.
Then it was an apple. But fruit has evolved.
Kensi: This one might be more evolved than you.
Deeks: Lychee... goji... mangosteen...
This is another level completely.
This is a stimulant...a mood enhancer...
an aphrodisiac....but all rolled into one,
and then I put my money into a smoothie.
|Pretty cool definition of a durian at the opening scene|
|Deeks was so very excited to find a durian at the victim's house|
Now, watch the reactions from the rest of the cast members:
|Kensi's nonverbal reactions to the smell of a durian|
|More reactions to the durian infamous smell|
|Another cute American reaction to durian smell|
Either you love it or you don't.
|The spoiler or anti-climax at the end of the durian episode|
NCIS cast members had a raw deal getting an over-ripe and rotting durian. The dull color and soft texture of the husk when Deeks poked the durian with the knife are tell-tale signs of a durian way past its prime. It's not fit for eating! It's smell must be horrendous!
Don't let the TV fooled you. You're misinformed!
