Terror from the Year 5000 (1958) (part 6 of 8)
Cut to a restaurant where, for some reason, the Prof is standing outside. I guess they have a policy against serving short bald guys. Or insane scientists. Bob wanders out and the Prof asks if he got in touch with the hospital. Bob says the girl at the front desk insisted that Victor “went home”, but for reasons unknown, he’s convinced that she was mistaken. Because girls are just plain dumb, right, Doc? Instead of going back to the hospital to check, Bob casually asks, “Is there a good movie in town?” Yeah, why not? Maybe Atomic War Bride is playing.
We next see Victor at a bar, pounding down shots [!]. You half-expect him to turn to the guy next to him and go, “You lost your job? Big F’ing deal. I got radiation poisoning!”
