Zardoz (1974) (part 6 of 15)

Z-Dawg hauls the cart past another cottage, and we several Chef Hat guys standing around, staring off into space. Friend tosses bread at them, then points to a girl and says, “I loved this girl once, monster!” And look what it did to her! He continues to hurl loaves of rock hard bread at motionless Chef Hats, calling them things like “idle Apathetic!” and a “melancholy sight!”

They ride into a building and find more people practicing to be mannequins, and Friend tosses more bread at them. He then gets a ring on his phone, or a phone on his ring, so he commands Z-Dawg to stop. The ring tells him it’s time for a verdict in the trial of George Saden, the guy who was harshing everybody’s mellow down in Second Level.

Friend points his ring into the thin air and projects the guy’s face on a pane of glass. Okay, okay, the glass is not really supposed to be there. It’s supposed to be projected into thin air, but between you and me, I don’t think this really works outside of Scooby Doo cartoons.
