Easy Kill (1989) (part 2 of 7)

Frank explains that he owns the bar in the following exchange of tender dialogue:

Frank: Look, let me tell you something, I run that bar back there. Everyday I see people coming and drinking themselves stupid. You know why?
Jade: I’m not an alcoholic.
Frank: I didnt say you were an alcoholic. But you’re alone, and that’s where it starts. Believe me. I know.

They drive around for a while, until Frank stops and Jade jumps out of the car. In a long shot, however, we see there’s no stoplight or stop sign anywhere near Frank’s car. So apparently Frank stopped his car for the sole purpose of letting Jade jump out. He yells at her to get back in, but she ignores him and keeps running (She may be attempting to escape from this movie). Frank gets back in his car, and drives around looking for her, but there’s no sign of her. Eventually he gives up and drives back to the bar.

Tell me the truth… Do you see a stop sign anywhere in this shot?

Frank parks his car across the street from the bar and gets out. In the background, we see the headlights of another car appear. The car speeds up, almost running Frank down. Frank hops onto the hood of a nearby parked car to avoid getting hit, and to say this stunt is weakly executed would be too kind. As the car drives off, we notice that it’s Alex’s Pontiac from the first scene.

When Frank goes back inside, Cameron Mitchell (whose character’s name is Eddie) informs Frank that someone was just in there asking about "that pretty classy lady", presumably Jade. Frank wants to know if the guy asking about Jade drove a Pontiac, though how Eddie could see that from behind the bar is anyone’s guess (We saw the outside of the club, and it clearly has no windows facing the street).

Frank also wants to know if the car (which Eddie didn’t see) was blue. "Blue, green, yellow — I don’t know!" Eddie says, then adds, "This town is full of creeps!" I’m not sure what that has to do with anything.
