Wild Wild West (1999) (part 6 of 11)
Since everyone at the party is deaf, no one heard the gunshots, so Jim returns to the party without drawing any undue attention. He finds the girl he believes to be Gordon and has a lengthy conversation with her. Then, because he still thinks it’s Gordon, and because it’s so very hilarious, he drums his hands across what he thinks are fake breasts, but are actually her real breasts.
The girl slaps Jim across the face, and several Southern gents point their guns at him—because everyone in the South carries a gun, of course. Mountaineer Gordon seems to find some kind of strange opportunity in this, and calls for Jim to be hanged. He just happens to have a rope, too, which he tosses into the crowd, and the entire party empties outside with Jim led at gunpoint. Ooh, lynching humor. It’s really an untapped goldmine of comedy, I think.
