I agree!
I also thought Stallone's character swearing to get penalty slips so he had toilet paper was hysterical.
At least the future hasn't delivered us the three shells method ... yet.

I have to say that Sandra Bullock looks really nice in that robe she is wearing

Stallone says he knows how the three seashell method was supposed to work, and I think it's disgusting:



Now this is about a thousand times more disgusting, less safe and less sanitary than toilet paper, so obviously Stallone's full of BS in that regard. I prefer to think that the seashells somehow generate a low level sonic field that gets you clean, kind of like a Trek sonic shower.

Re: Old memory of a science fiction scene... what is it?

There's another variant on that scene in the 1980s mini series Something is Out There (though I don't think that'll be what the OP is thinking of: in this version, the telepathic woman freaks out after getting a mental flash that he's thinking of doing it physically).

Re: Old memory of a science fiction scene... what is it?

IIRC, there was a scene that mentioned Stallone's character had a daughter that he lost track of when he got put on ice - a statement that felt like a little more than just some irrelevant throw-away line about his background. Thing is, I got the impression that Bullock's character was supposed to be that lost daughter, which would have obviously made that other scene really icky. Was there an earlier version of the script that would have had them discover, in quite a cliche'd and awkward manner at the end, that they were, in fact, related?

Re: Old memory of a science fiction scene... what is it?

I am fairly sure there was going to be a scene where John Spartan meets his daughter but I know it was never supposed to be Lenina. That would have been off the charts on the disgust-ometer.

I always thought they were supposed to be the controls for a bidet-like device, but what do I know?
