Those amphetamines' name is a reference to a famous movie, but you already guessed that, rightie-right? Oh, that note. Pfffft, this was just a lousy-lousy trick of Psycho-Ginger making us believe she wouldn't come to the trade show, some people can't fight fair!

I get the Jekyll & Hyde reference in general.
But which one of the probably dozens of film adaptions?
(I mean, certainly there are some that are more famous than others, but...)

The most famous one from the year of horror classics, 1932. Frederic March wasn't the first one to play Hyde (I think I've watched four of the silent versions made before this talkie, including the Stan Laurel spoof,) but he defined the iconic character in a way that Karloff recreated Frankenstein and Lugosi Dracula. Interesting enough, the later version with Spencer Tracy copies many scenes from the march version, but Tracy fails in the Hyde part.

PS: The second movie reference on this page is Johnny Weissmüller as Tarzan.

- There was a Jekyll & Hyde spoof with Stan Laurel!?
(Interesting - bit of internet research reveals that it was apparently shortly before he teamed up with Oliver Hardy.)

- Ah yes, the famous Tarzan cry, now I see it!

Laurel did a huge number of movies before he teamed up with Hardy, but most of them weren't really remarkable, although there were notable examples, like the Hyde movie and a very early prison break movie. (I think the same can be said about the Hardy movies before Laurel, although I liked the stoneage one.)

Pfffft, coffee additive? Maybe we can make a deal... I have to speak-speak a few words with Donna anyway.
