Ending sequence (same as in "A Minor Problem")

  • Micky Jones (who's also in "Long Run Home" and "Triangle") does a good job as Ricky
  • There's a humorous scene where Ricky teaches Hulk how to open a can of soda pop
  • Hulk-out 1: Finding out that his somewhat slow friend Ricky has locked himself in a shed in a car with the engine running, and then trying to break the lock with a shovel, only to have the rusty shovel snap and clobber his fingers
  • Hulk-out 2: Driving into the demolition derby because Ricky has driven a potentially explosive car into the derby, only to have his car bashed by the other cars on the field so that nobody can hear his frantic cries of “No! Ricky! RICKY!”

TriviaEdit
