    In “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”, Gilbert works at a little local grocery store. There’s a great scene where he talks about the price of the pickles. He talks with the owners about the Great Big Mega Chain that moves into town that has a lobster tank as you walk in the door and all sorts of stuff. Gilbert mentions that he’d die before shopping at the Mega Chain.

    Well, Gilbert’s autistic brother (played by Leo DiCaprio!) ruins a birthday party and Gilbert is tasked with picking up a pre-made birthday cake from the local Mega Chain. We see him walk through the door. We see him look at the big lobster tank right there as you walk in. We see him walk out with the cake… and we see him see that the guy who owns the little local store at which Gilbert works sees Gilbert walk out with a cake. We see Gilbert look down at the cake in his arms and start with shame and guilt.

    Anyway.

    Yeah. It would suck to see Otto.Report
