Okay so I think Chris Evans was saying in an interview about how it’s always the children who discover the hero in disguise, and I just realized why: it’s because they’re short enough to see under the hat and they’re innocent and hopeful enough to still believe in heroes.
The woman in the red shirt (Betty) who fought back is a lesbian in Canada during WWII. She was out with her lover when a group of men —strangers — started harassing them on the street, and when she fought back she was afraid her relationship with the other woman would be outed.
The woman all in blue is in charge of their shift, and she’s been tough before, and is a pretty big stickler for the rules.
I’m pretty sure Betty thought she was getting publicly fired, and instead Lorna gives this speech to stop everyone from gossiping about Betty, turning what she did — fighting back — into the heroic act it is.
God this scene is important to me. I nearly cried.
U know how in winter it gets so cold and u think u will never be hot again and in summer it gets so hot u think u will never be cold again I think that is how it is with ur feelings like when u r sad u think u will never be happy and when u r happy u think u will never be sad. But u will be hot again and u will be cold again and u will be sad again but most of all u will be happy again
