Thank you, sir, for pointing out that there must be some trauma at the root of this.



J.J.: Like that?

PROFESSOR: No, less than that.

J.J. (making an adjustment): How about now?

PROFESSOR: Less still. J.J.: Gosh. Okay, how’s that?

PROFESSOR: Even less. You’ll be amazed how much less you can get away with.

J.J.: But it’ll ruin the shot!

PROFESSOR: Nah. Have some confidence. Wait, what are you shooting on, Velvia?
