My favorite part of ‘Hunt for Red October’ is the one with Larry Lucchino in it.

(Inside the Boston front office…)

SEAMAN JONES: Club, owner! Crazy Asshole!

CHERINGTON: What’s goin’ on?

SEAMAN JONES: Larry Lucchino sometimes stops suddenly to see if his employees are behind him. We call it, “Crazy Asshole.” The only thing you can do is go dead. Shut your mouth down and make like a hole in the conversation.

CHERINGTON: So what’s the catch?

SEAMAN JONES: The catch is, a crowd of flunkies doesn’t exactly stop on a dime… and if we’re too close, we’ll drift right into the back of him.

CHERINGTON: Into his asshole.


CHERINGTON: That’s crazy.

SEAMAN JONES: Yes, that’s what Theo thought.

CHERINGTON: So that’s why he wore the gorilla suit.

SEAMAN JONES: He did, until Larry began stopping more often.
