Back story #1
I like to think that Dude has a music library in his head. He hears things, stores them, and brings them out for use at random (or freakishly appropriate) times.
Every once in awhile, while sitting at the dinner table trying to avoid eating food, Dude declares, “I’M A SCATMAN!”
And now, please enjoy one of the best scenes from the film “Nothing to Lose.” (Context: A tarantula was crawling on Tim Robbins’ face. Also, he had spilled gasoline on his foot earlier in the movie.)
