Santa with Muscles (1996) (part 9 of 11)
We fade back in and there’s Hulk back at home, sleeping in his own bed. There’s the expected “Hulk is relieved it was all a dream” moment, followed by the “pulls back the covers on his Santa suit to see it wasn’t a dream” moment. There’s an even more predictable shot of the exterior of his mansion as his yells of surprise echo through the air.
Then Butler Chas appears with a tray and a glass of an unknown, murky beverage. Perhaps Metamucil, perhaps untreated sewage. You never know. Chas sprays the room with air freshener and says a “waste disposal engineer” recognized Hulk and kindly brought him back home. So, let’s see, the guy is so famous that even garbage men recognize him, and yet the TV reporter who did a live interview with him didn’t. Whatever.
Hulk reveals that he believed he was Santa Claus, which is something that, personally, I’d try to keep to myself. He suddenly remembers everything at the orphanage and attempts to call Saavik.
