What's In Your Fridge?

  We were watching 'Return of the Living Dead' on Netflix the other day.  The guy who's showing the new kid around the job looked familiar to me.  He was Stephen's boss in 'Poltergeist'.  The guy who Stephen yells at near the end of the movie, "You only moved the headstones!  Why?!"  I quote that all the time.  I also like the quote from 'Return' when the new kid makes a disparaging remark about the situation and our man says, "You'll keep your mouth shut if you like your job," to which the new kid shouts, "Like this job?!"
  There's also the classic line when the zombie calls dispatch and says, "Send more paramedics."  Just like Domino's, they deliver.  Speaking of food, in 'Poltergeist', there's that scene where a man gets hungry in the middle of the night and goes to the kitchen to get a snack.  He opens the fridge and pulls out a slab of raw beef and puts it on the counter.  It's not covered with anything.  There's no plate.  It's just a hunk of meat sitting in the fridge and he handles it with his bare hands.  He puts it on a clean counter and doesn't wash his hands.  Instead he handles a chicken wing, which he puts in his mouth.  Boy, those were simpler days.  They didn't worry about germs.  Nowadays, if the e-coli didn't kill you, the salmonella would.
