Black SplatThe Blues Brothers (1980)

"You contemptible pig!"

The Blues Brothers - Carrie Fisher as the Crazy Woman

Description - Surly remark of a spurned "Mystery Woman" (Carrie Fisher) who stalks ex-con Joliet Jake Blues (John Belushi) in the cult comedy film The Blues Brothers (1980).

Jake left the "Mystery Woman" at the altar and for this discourteous deed the jilted woman has decided that Jake must die. And so, when Jake gets out of prison, she hunts him down armed with grenade launcher, flame thrower, and machine gun as her arsenal of revenge. But Jake's uncanny luck saves him from each of her murder plots.

Finally, the mystery woman corners Jake in a tunnel sporting a menacing firearm. Surprised and frightened, Jake says, "It's good to see you, sweetheart," but the The Mystery Woman is none too happy, and shouts:

"You contemptiblel pig! I remained celibate for you. I stood at the back of a cathedral, waiting, in celibacy, for you, with three hundred friends and relatives in attendance. My uncle hired the best Romanian caterers in the state. To obtain the seven limousines for the wedding party, my father used up his last favor with Mad Pete Trullo. So for me, for my mother, my grandmother, my father, my uncle, and for the common good, I must now kill you, and your brother."

Confronted with almost certain death, Jake pleads, "Oh, please, don't kill us! Please, please don't kill us! You know I love you baby. I wouldn't leave ya. It wasn't my fault!"

None to taken at his pleas for mercy, the Mystery Woman shouts, "You miserable slug! You think you can talk your way out of this? You betrayed me." Suddenly, Jake falls to his knees. and spits out a laundry list of excuses as to why he never made it to the church on time.

“No, I didn't. Honest. I ran out of gas! I had a flat tire! I didn't have enough money for cab fare! My tux didn't come back from the cleaners! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! It wasn’t my Fault I SWEAR TO GOD!!!”

Standing boldly with firearm in hand, the Mystery Woman is about to have her revenge, but, at the last minute, she chokes as Jake removes his sunglasses. With her vengeance softening, she sighs, "Oh, Jake... Jake, honey." Jake embraces and kisses his former fiancée and then says, "Let's go" to his brother, Elwood (Dan Akyroyd). As Jake departs down the tunnel, Elwood steps past the Mystery Woman and says, "Take it easy."

The Blues Brothers - Charlets Napier as Tucker McElroy

Jake met another goofy character on his odyssey to raise money for a Catholic orphanage. This time it was a redneck tough guy named Tucker McElroy (Charles Napier) who threatens Jake with some violent vegetable talk - “You’re gonna look pretty funny trying to eat corn on the cob with no fuckin’ teeth.”

Despite such obstacles as a crazy ex-girlfriend, rednecks, Illinois Nazis (Jake hates them) and angry police, Jake and Elwood fulfill their "Misson from God" by putting their old blues band back together so they could raise $5000 for Sister Mary Stigmata (Kathleen Freeman) to pay the property tax on the Chicago orphanage where they lived as children. Jake and Elwood called the nun "The Penguin."

Note: In the motion picture The Shawshank Redemption (1994), prison Captain Hadley (Clancy Brown) informs newcomer Andrew Dufresne (Tim Robbins), "You’re gonna look real funny sucking my dick with no teeth."
