JD: Great costume. I wore a bandana and a half shirt. At away games I wore spurs. Which in retrospect is sort of weird, 'cause we weren't the Cowboys.
Background: JD felt a tug on his heartstrings as he started chatting with his terminally ill patient. To get him past the fear of dying, JD decided to stay the entire night with him talking about his life. In this part, JD was sharing his experience of being a mascot for the girls' volleyball team in college.
Hi, Is there any difference between "come to think of it" and "in retrospect"? To me, "Come to think of it" gives more the sense that a thought suddenly hits the speaker during conversation. "In retrospect" seems to suggest that the speaker has formed a new opinion before, and it doesn't suddenly pop into his head during conversation.
