The Hellcats (1967) (part 5 of 6)

Back on the mattress, Monte finally tries to make some progress in the whole reason he joined the gang to begin with. Witness his subtle investigative technique:

Monte: Who was that dude bugging you last night?
Sheila: Just a guy.
Monte: Thought you went with Snake.
Sheila: Off and on.
Monte: Mostly on or mostly off?
Sheila: You’re mostly curious.
Monte: A lot to be curious about, like that map of Mexico.
Sheila: Monte, baby, I love you, but you ask too many questions.
Monte: Can’t help it. My mind is like a sponge.

Yeah, just think about that, and imagine how Monte would talk if his mind wasn’t like a sponge. Sheila responds with something unintelligible, aaaaaaaaaand scene.

Can you put the jacket back, please?

Back at the party, a guy wearing a German army helmet makes out with a mannequin torso, while Trumpet Guy blows some hot air in the face of Snake’s snake. Candy Cave tries to snag a bottle from Rita, but she wakes up and snatches it away.

Monte returns from his wild sex romp in the name of finding his brother’s killer, and Linda seems remarkably good natured about it, showing him the drugs she got from Scab. Monte figures out that’s what the gang is bringing in from Mexico. Nice one, Sherlock. This movie almost had me thinking they were smuggling in enchiladas. Sheila walks up, saying she heard that Linda “cooled” Scab. She asks Linda for a ride, because Rita’s “bombed out.” Linda says, “I’m not too fond of the company around here anyway,” and splits. Diss!
