The Howling: New Moon Rising (1995) (part 6 of 11)
That night at Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace (and boy, do I feel a sense of dread just typing that), Jacqueline is still complaining about her deer being spooked and giving Bob an earful. Ted walks up and says, “Hey, Bob, you weren’t trying to find a good looking one [!!], now were you?”
Bob says, “Not me! I’ve been in the desert too long!” Huh? Jim the Bartender, who I’m slowly coming to believe is the sleazy version of Coach from Cheers, jokes, “Put a bag over their head and you wouldn’t know the difference anyway!” Yikes. I have a feeling he speaks from experience.
Jacqueline insists, however, that whatever scared her deer was “not normal”. Ted says this “narrows the field” and Jim sneers, “Reading you loud and clear, dude. Brock!” Jacqueline says Brock isn’t an animal, to which Ted’s witty rejoinder is, “Well, he’s not human!” Many chuckles follow. Wow, is this the Algonquin Roundtable, or what?
