The Third Sponge

The Pirate and I finally finished watching the rest of The Third Man. When we first started watching it, we both thought that the ridiculous zither music was entirely out of keeping with the tension of the movie.

Pirate: "When is zither music EVER the right thing?"
Me: "Well, if you happened to be walking down a Greek beach and see a bunch of those guys wearing the white skirts and the shoes with the red pompoms dancing around with no musical accompaniment, you'd start thinking that a little zither music was just the thing."
Pirate: "Yeah. Because that happens."

So, we're watching the climactic last scene - the big chase through the sewer pipes, and I realize exactly WHERE I've heard that jaunty zither music before. It's the theme music for SpongeBob Squarepants.

This means that we spent the last 15 minutes of the movie making horrible SpongeBob dialogue over the real dialogue.

Seriously - zither music? Who thought that was a good idea?

And now, the day after the death of Charleton Heston, we're watching Soylent Green because the Pirate's never seen it.
