The Pumaman (1980) (part 4 of 10)
Tony shows up at the Dutch Embassy, and Jane greets him in an ugly white cocktail dress. She’s alarmed at his disheveled appearance, and he says he was in a car accident. She asks if it was serious. Tony cracks, “Two doors and a bumper, barring any further complications!” Huh? I don’t get it, but then I have to wonder if Tony’s jokes are actually meant to be gotten. Naturally, Jane finds this unendingly amusing.
Jane introduces him to her father, who’s in a tux and commiserating with other guys in tuxes. Jane refers to Tony as a “paleontologist”, which means he’s just like Ross on Friends, except she pronounces it “pally-entologist”. The dad introduces his companions as “Sir George Bradley of the Energy Ministry… Sir John Forbes, esquith… Sir Michael Robinson!” And, presumably, Sir Mix-A-Lot was running a little late. Of course, you’d think the Dutch ambassador would actually have a, y’know, Dutch accent, but then again, you didn’t make this movie, now did you?
