I want to highlight this recent musical moment from the TV series "Pushing Daisies." It features the wonderful Kristin Chenoweth showing off her Tony Award winning singing chops. Her character Olive Snook suffers with unrequited love for Ned who is in love with Chuck, the girl he raised from the dead. Olive could simply have been portrayed as jealous and bitchy but thanks to the writers and the talent of Chenoweth, she is sympathetic, likable, assertive and fun. In this clip, she pines for Ned in a way that made me smile.
