I just can’t walk away,
'cause after loving you I can never be the same.
Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.
No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.
1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.
2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.
3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.
Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.
so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….
Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.
There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.
Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.
The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?
Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.
Lo que yo me pregunto es por qué no contratan a los guionistas en Tumblr de una santa puta vez.
Q: I started dating a guy who’s really into soccer…
"No, I don’t think it’s just about just getting a girlfriend. You know? I mean, yeah, I can get a girlfriend! Yeah, we could sit in the chair and do crosswords, but you know, are we ever going to have, you know the c l o s e n e s s like-like you guys have?”

HOUSE OF TRASTÁMARA
The House of Trastámara was a dynasty of kings in the Iberian Peninsula, which first governed in Castile beginning in 1369 (until 1555) before expanding its rule into Aragón (1412-1555) Navarre (1425-1479) and Naples (1458-1501, 1504-1555). They were an illegitimate cadet line of the House of Burgundy (the last king of Castilian Burgundians, Peter I of Castile, was murdered by his half-brother Henry, the first King of the House of Trastámara).
The last queen of this dynasty, Joanna I of Castile, was betrayed by her husband, her father, and her son.
"Yo, Boabdil, Emir de Granada; en mi nombre, en el nombre de los nobles y en el de todo el común de la ciudad: hago entrega a sus altezas o a la persona que mandare, con amor, paz y buena voluntad verdadera, de la fortaleza de la Alhambra y de la ciudad de Granada, su Albaicín y sus arrabales, para que las ocupen en su nombre, con su gente y a su voluntad.”
