He never really changed at all. Isn't that right Doc? I mean he never really got any smarter. Doc?
Doc: Banes... how's your lady love?
Banes: We... um... we broke up.
Doc: Really? That's too bad, yeah. Now George has a love at his side and she is sticking with him. ...
George is spinning the sunglasses for everyone to see when the TV reporter asks his cameraman if he's "getting this." Camera man gives a thumbs up, however, his camera view is partially obscured by a guy in a brown coat. If the camera is actually pointed to the sunglasses (to a table that is thigh-high), the view would have been obscured even more.
