    And Richard Dawkin's Selfish Gene, most apropos.
    But it was chicken salad, not tuna salad, from Five Easy Pieces.
    At a roadside diner, B. wants plain toast, which isn't on the menu-

    Bobby: I'd like an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.
    Waitress: A #2, chicken salad sand. Hold the butter, the lettuce, the mayonnaise, and a cup of coffee. Anything else?
    Bobby: Yeah, now all you have to do is hold the chicken, bring me the toast, give me a check for the chicken salad sandwich, and you haven't broken any rules.
    Waitress: You want me to hold the chicken, huh?
    Bobby: I want you to hold it between your knees.

    From IMDB "Bob Rafelson produced an underrated masterpiece when he made 'Five Easy Pieces'. Jack Nicholson, atypically understated as a self-hating misogynist ill at ease with himself and the world... gorgeous cinematography from Laszlo Kovaks, excellent soundtrack, writing and black humor.

    Shades of Almodavar's Bad Education and Hitchcock's Vertigo, mixed with some bad melodrama. Enjoy - but finish your snacks before the skin comes off!
