staff weapon?

stand by me 36 [click to embiggen]

I am pretty sure that’s not what happened in the film, but I have no problem with Mrs Bugg’s interpretation.


Mr and Mrs Bugg are confronted by a group of four bugg thugs. You can tell they’re thugs because one is wearing a leather jacket and smoking. Mrs Bugg, who takes no one’s shit, ever, and isn’t starting now, has drawn from a secret pocket somewhere a huge Jaffa staff weapon, and is pointing the business end at the thugs.

The text reads: “Stand By Me: Scene 36: When the bully biggs showed up Mrs Bugg pulled out the staff weapon.”
