    The look on Royal Tenenbaum’s face (Gene Hackman)
    when the store clerk walks up on him
    at 1:35

    Royal Tenenbaum:
    “You can’t keep boys cooped up like jackrabbits”………
    “I’m not talking about dance lessons…..

    I’m talking about putting a brick through the other guy’s windshield”……

      The throwing of water ballons is very reminiscent of the snowball throwing incident which led…ultimately to the downfall of Narvik.

    Now that the G does mention it,
    via the antics of brother Royal Tenenbaum,
    it has been an extremely long time since the therapy of throwing water balloons!
    Harmless, yet effective.
    Great release……

    Idea:
    An excursion of the news hound stringer staff
    to launch a bunch of these !
    We gather the troops
    and visit several “select” locals,
    aka
    real toads,
    that also need a little
    humor to expose their attitudes
    and to assist them in their comprehension of themselves…….
    Yes, it is time!
