I know we’ve done Who do you think is the coolest or most interesting fictional character ever?, and Fictional characters you have wanted to date. Now I’m wondering what fictional characters have had a line, attitude, or overall character that made you want to leap into the show and slap them silly.
Apologies if we’ve already done this and I missed it.
I thought of this as Risky Business popped up as I was channel surfing… and I remembered Joel talking to his friend Miles, played by Curtis Armstrong (who would go on to be “Booger” in the Nerds pics and Herbert Viola in Moonlighting). Joel is pointing out that, on Miles’ advice, he’s done things that have now got him in deep trouble, and he’s asking for Miles’ help. Miles refuses, and Joel points out: “Hey, what about all that ‘What the fuck’ stuff you were telling me? Was that true, or was that just bullshit?”
Miles calmly replies, “That was just bullshit, Joel.”
The movie’s 20 years old, and I still feel like slapping Miles repeatedly.
