Queer: That was so disappointing. What was that director thinking? And that drum! Jesus, that drum — the most important scene probably in the last hundred years of Dramatic Literature. I mean, the girl is saving the town, for God’s sake — it’s supposed to be heroic — and they give her a tiny toy drum, practically a fucking tambourine! It makes the scene funny and ludicrous! It’s like, what are they fighting for, for Christ’s sake?!
Passing B&T woman: Well, that’s the point, isn’t it? What are they ever fighting for?
Queer: Certainly not that fucking drum. –Outside the Delacorte Theater, Central Park
