This will be one of the most obscure references probably ever posted on this board. I'm curious to see if anyone will get it!

The Ratbirds kept at him - sometimes he was able to fight 'em off, sometimes not. And that's how it went for Brian - that was his routine. I do believe those first two years were the worst for him, and I also believe that if things had gone on that way, this place would have got the best of him.
Anyone venture to guess what that is from? Its pretty fitting...ha.
I never understood something about Shawshank. Red seems to hold a pretty high stature in the prison among his fellow inmates. Since he and Andy were such close friends, why couldn't he offer the guy some protection against the Sisters?Originally Posted by proudpittsburgher
BTW, nice job IS. Funny stuff!!!
Red was just the "guy who could get things." I don't think he had any influence over the sodomites.Originally Posted by rpmpit
True. But maybe he could have gotten Andy something to protect himself with.Originally Posted by RuthlessBurgher
Or at the very least some condoms so at least the sodomy would be safer
Yea, what he said. Plus, Red kind of stayed away from conflict. Still, one of my all-time favorite movies. You walk away from it saying, "Man, what a good movie"Originally Posted by RuthlessBurgher
He did get him that rock hammer, though. He could have sunk that toy into somebody's skull.Originally Posted by rpmpit
Red: I'm known to locate certain things from time to time.
Andy: I wonder if you might get me a rock-hammer.
Red: ...What is it and why?
Andy: What do you care?
Red: What if it was a toothbrush? I wouldn't ask questions. I'd just quote a price. But then, a toothbrush is a non-lethal object, isn't it?
Andy: Fair enough. A rock-hammer is about six or seven inches long. Looks like a miniature pick-axe.
Andy: For rocks.
Red: Rocks. (Andy flips him a sample rock) Quartz?
Andy: (squatting down and inspecting the ground) Quartz. Here's some mica, shale, limestone.
Andy: So I'm a rock-hound. At least I was, in my old life. I'd like to be again, on a limited basis.
Red: Or maybe you'd like to sink your toy into somebody's skull.
Andy: No, sir. I have no enemies here.
Red: No? Wait a while. Word gets around. The Sisters have taken quite a likin' to you, especially Boggs.
Andy: I don't suppose it would help any if I explained to them I'm not homosexual.
Red: Neither are they. You have to be human first. They don't qualify. Bull queers take by force. That's all they want or understand. If I were you, I'd grow eyes in the back of my head.
Andy: Thanks for the advice.
Red: That's free. You understand my concern.
Andy: Well, if there's any trouble, I won't use the rock-hammer. OK?
Red: Then I guess you wanna escape. Tunnel under the wall, maybe? (Andy laughs, when Red unintentionally guesses his real motive) Did I miss something here? What's funny?
Andy: You'll understand when you see the rock-hammer.
