Scenes 26-30

Scene 26

  • Marty gets some one-on-one-on-one time with David and Jeanine, and Jeanine confesses that she has a lot of influence over David in pretty much every aspect of his life. Including his music. She's sort of the "critic behind the artist."
  • David also acknowledges that things between Jeanine and Nigel are not quite peachy keen.
  • Seems there's some jealousy and/or resentment going both ways in this little love/hate triangle.

Scene 27

  • Nigel plays the piano for Marty, and he's actually pretty good. Those look like his real hands, too. (There wasn't a lot of CGI back in 1984.)
  • Nigel's working on a little pet project—a musical trilogy in the key of D, the saddest of all keys. Which is fitting, because the title "Lick My Love Pump" is certainly depressing.

Scene 28

  • The boys run into a bit of trouble at airport security when Derek repeatedly sets off the metal detector, despite turning in his keys, tuning fork, etc.
  • Fortunately, he's allowed to go through once it's determined that he was merely giving himself a little help in the, ahem, cucumber department. If you get our drift. Curse you, aluminum foil.

Scene 29

  • It's magic time. Spinal Tap performs the fan favorite "Heavy Duty." Nigel's tongue is in peak form.

Scene 30

  • In a Chicago hotel room, the band meets Artie Fufkin, a promotions guy from Polymer Records. (Man, these folks from Polymer have got some names, haven't they?)
