Those of you who don’t get Jason’s line in the first panel haven’t seen Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. Here’s a clip from the film, although since it’s pretty much the very end of the movie, so maybe do yourself a favor and watch the whole flick; it’s — arguably — one of the most important films of the 1980’s.
(There’s another line from a film in the last panel. If you don’t know that one, I’m sure someone will explain it to you in the comments while I shake my head gently.)
That does it for this arc. We’re going to jump forward in time slightly for next week. See you Monday!

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
