Hi, Good Wife fans!
I thought it would be nice if we, as a fandom, could put a little something together for the crew that works tirelessly to make the show we all love as great as it is. We recognize the actors and the Kings (and the other writers, though not as much as we should!) all the time, but it’s very rare that we show our appreciation for the people behind-the-scenes.
So let’s change that.
I’d like to make a thank you card for the crew of The Good Wife with “signatures” from fans to send to them while they’re filming the final episode of the season around 3-4 weeks from now. It’d be a virtual card that looks something like a guest board you might see at a wedding: a large document with a short message (still to be written) and a lot of signatures.
To sign, send me a message with whatever name you’d like to appear on the card— your name, your Tumblr URL, initials, your Twitter handle, anything. Keep in mind that the card will be shared publicly.
Thanks in advance for participating!

It should go a little something like this! ;)
We don’t know much about Kalinda’s past (of course), but Kalinda mentioned in the same episode to Alicia that her parents emigrated from elsewhere legally (possibly India). It could be that Kalinda grew up in a multilingual household and may have been exposed to a number of South Asian languages through her family and the South Asian diaspora. But through my own personal experience, I can say that doesn’t always make fluency in a language a sure thing. :)
Just because a person doesn’t speak a language doesn’t mean they can’t recognize it. I don’t speak or understand Spanish, French, Arabic or Punjabi, but I can recognize them when they are spoken thanks to my experience of hearing these languages spoken by family and friends and also on film/television. I’ve been exposed to them enough to the point where the ‘sound’ of these languages are distinct enough from one another.
Also, Cary refers to the area where he’s meeting Kalinda as ‘Little India.’ That shop wasn’t her first stop in the neighborhood. And with Kalinda being as observant as she is she may have picked on what languages were more common in the area. It stands to reason that the South Asian man in the South Asian shop in ‘Little India’ might be speaking Hindi.
