Real Stupid and Real Lucky

I have a midterm tomorrow, so I've been studying -- or at least trying to -- this weekend. And there's nothing like studying theoretical commputer science that makes you want to get a leather jacket and a motorcycle and go bother Midwesterners like in The Wild One. Preferably while hanging out with a Boy Scout, "Scatting Greaser" variant Casey Kasem and Marlon Brando wearing what would shortly become de rigieur gay bar fashion.

This scene takes place, if I am recalling the plot correctly, after he has been kicked out of the house after, yet again, beating his pregnant wife Stella.
