Brenda Leigh Johnson - Work Life - Habits

Habits

Brenda's trademark is her "honeyed Georgia cadence", and her catch phrase is "Thank you; thank you so much." (Her "Thank you" is pronounced approximately, "Thank yew!".)

In the pursuit of justice, Brenda is willing to use the Russian mob or the Mexican prison system to stop criminals she cannot capture.

Brenda is a severe workaholic, who routinely focuses on her cases to the exclusion of everything else around her, a habit that frequently clashes with both her professional and personal lives and relationships. She tends to micromanage her investigations and to closely examine details. She loves junk food and sweets, especially Ding Dongs but is trying to reduce that dependency. She usually hides all types of junk food in drawers, purses, and other places. She is also known to be a "bit of a slob", commenting in one episode that she does not get around to housework every day; and in another episode, during a small argument with Fritz over where her mail is, Fritz comments that "if she looked at her mail daily instead of once a week, she would know where they keep it".

She also seems to be shy of change, perhaps due to her previous bad relationships. She is initially wary of Fritz's moving in with her and even more wary when they talk of buying a house together, but Fritz uses desperate measures to convince her otherwise. She also is true to traditional values, and is overwhelmed when Fritz talks of having children after her pregnancy scare in season 2, because "they aren't married yet, and there's a certain order to things." She also speaks of wanting to protect against future unplanned pregnancies for the same reasons. However, she accepts Fritz's proposal with no hesitation.

Famous quotes containing the word habits:

    The only ones who are really grateful for the war are the wild ducks, such a lot of them in the marshes of the Rhone and so peaceful ... because all the shot-guns have been taken away completely taken away and nobody can shoot with them nobody at all and the wild ducks are very content. They act as of they had never been shot at, never, it is so easy to form old habits again, so very easy.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    The Americans ... are almost ignorant of the art of music, one of the most elevating, innocent and refining of human tastes, whose influence on the habits and morals of a people is of the most beneficial tendency.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)

    Always too eager for the future, we
    Pick up bad habits of expectancy.
    Something is always approaching; every day
    Till then we say....
