20 Funny Quotes and Funniest Pics. To make it stand apart among thrillers, Showtime’s series Yellowjackets isn’t afraid to go all out when it comes to suspense and terror, but it often employs comedy to break up the tension that builds with each episode. A high school soccer team that survives an aircraft crash and is forced to live in the bush isn’t exactly ripe for humorous quotations, but the players’ reactions to their ordeal are often rather comical. While some characters, such as Shauna, are sarcastic, others, such as Natalie, become more sarcastic as their position becomes worse. Fans of Yellowjackets have grown to love the show’s witty lines instead of finding them unsettling. “They were all so terrible,” Shauna says casually of the saints, her distanced tone perfectly in line with her separation from Jackie on their final night before flying to nationals. It’s very ’90s and fatalistic.
Laura Lee may be the team’s most devout believer, but it’s odd to hear Shauna mention anything remotely religious before the aircraft crashed. In the same way that Shauna’s personal preferences turn off Jackie, she finds her saint card collection off-putting, but Shauna is intrigued by the crucible of sacrifices that saints go through to be deemed martyrs. Misty can naturally convert a terrible situation into a good one, as she demonstrates in the aftermath of the aircraft accident as a teenager. Her Citizen Detective abilities are at the ready as she and Natalie break into Travis’s decrepit residence.
