Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (1979) (part 8 of 8)
Meanwhile, Svevo has made his way all the way to the dog-flap and stepped out onto the hull with his last henchman (David Birney Guy, in case you’re keeping track). So, wasn’t that way out blocked before? Help me out here. I can practically remember my own birth better than I can the beginning of this movie.
Celeste and Nurse Deanna, seeing as nothing is going on (which, you know, is to be expected at the climax of a film), have settled in for some girl talk. And no, they’re not talking about their perky boobs. Celeste says she only wants one guy to ever see the new invisible scar on her back. Yeah, guess who. Nurse Deanna starts to object, but Celeste defends her feelings.
Celeste: I know, he treats me like a creep. But at least he knows I’m alive!
Way to aim high there, Celeste. Wasn’t that Madonna’s reason for staying with Sean Penn as long as she did? This has to be the most absoludicrous rationalization of a pairing off in recent movie history. As proof of her inexplicable love, Celeste gets Tex to promise to pay off the mortgage on Mike’s tugboat. Tex agrees, saying it’s “jes’ bein’ decent.”
