This is why I never go on family vacations.

So when you were 5, your 75 year old dad never took you on vacations?

It was the wet pajamas that ruined it for me.
Yours, or his?
It was a rather damp trip, wasn't it? At least we didn't have to see Dad in hot pants.

Wasn't Dr. Child-killer drinking J&B, the terrible scotch Guy from Harlem was drinking?

Any chance these two teamed up in another movie?

Steaks, bad Scotch, bitterness...I'm seeing a formula here.

And, oh yeah, I learned that if a sexy girl's legs have been horribly mauled, the first step in aiding her is gathering the family round and watching while you daub at her exposed flesh with a napkin (or was that a hanky?).

I learned that you can use century old (relative to this boat's time) technology to send a radio signal identifying themselves, that ships from the future-(present?) would be able to receive.

Either that, or the director just assumed that nobody watching would know Morse code, and would not notice that the lamp signals they both were sending to each other meant nothing. the movie doesn't make it too clear which one screwed up.

Hell, even I know how to signal SOS in Morse code with a shutter lantern.

I learned that John Huston must have been like Orson Welles, willing to act in any piece of crap. I wonder if this is how he raised the money to make Wise Blood.

I learned that whoever dubbed the voice of Semi-Competent Aztec Man couldn't have sounded less appropriate.

I learned that the abandoning of MV Joyita is worthy of inclusion on a list of Bermuda Triangle disappearances even though it happened in the South Pacific.

I learned that when random things go wrong, people are quick to blame a child's doll, but they won't actually take any action against it.

Phew, you said it. Even Semi-Competent Aztec Man doesn't do anything more than glower at it.

What exactly WAS all that stuff at the end? Does anybody even have a clue?

The Triangle was really dead all along, the ship was really transvestite and the crew really clones of rich people wanting spare parts.

I learned that apparently all the thought you need to put into the mythos of a backstory is: "there is a place where all kinds of bad stuff inexplicably happens".

You just quote, almost verbatim, the Story Bible for the writers of Lost.
