"... how was your day.."

One of my favorite scenes in the movie was when Alex Kitner's mom slapped Chief Brody in the face, and totally humiliated the guy in front of everyone on the pier. I suppose he could've had her arrested, but then he would've come off lookin' even worse... talk about a no-win situation.

NO WAY he would have arrested her. That would have made his character a total ass. No, it was a good scene and he knew he was just the outlet for her grief. She was right to be pissed, but Brody wasn't the one to be pissed at. That slap belonged to the Mayor. That was the ass.

This from a real trading card set, by the way?

That could almost feel it. I was always pissed she did not smack the weasely mayor instead.

Wings: Remember the Mayor's jacket with all the anchors all over it? No, they're not real cards. I get them at
At the bottom of their home page is the link.

MLS: I saw on a documentary that they had to shoot that scene about 50 times. One time the actress slapped him so hard his glasses got knocked off his face.

Yes, I remember the cheesy jacket!

And how did they keep the sheriff's face from getting red with all those slaps?
