  • Some suggestions as to what Joan's film represents: (Screw Flanders!)

    The Truth Wears Sideburns: The title of Joan's film referrs to Abe, or her movie's 'Gabe', as played by Genkis Kahn.
    Whisper, Whisper, Hush, Hush: Joan has a secret, and she wants to keep it quiet. (Which is strange, because she does the opposite of this during the entire season.)
    The ticking watch: Time is running out, for either Joan's remaining years, or time is running out on Joan and Gabe's relationship.
    Two dolphins: Joan and Gabe each have a dolphin. Note, the dolphins never touch each other.
    Gabe's screaming and crying: Gabe (Abe) is secretly in love with his best friend, but hasn't told her. The best friend is probably Joan.
    Cherry Pie: Joan's a virgin.
    Turns into maggots: Joan's reproductive system is going unused, and eventually is going to rot and become maggot-food (menopause, then death).
    Celine Dion: Joan is french, and so is Celine. Celine writes a lot of romantic music, which Joan possibly listens to when she thinks of Abe.
    The dead bird: Joan is worried that one day she'll die, and everybody will forget about her and keep living. ie, keep enjoying the picnic, and ignore the dead bird.
    A stove-pipe hat: Gabe, or Abe.
    A desert: With pyramids in the background, you can assume it's Egypt. Who do we know that's Egyptian, uh, Cleo.
    The hat rolling across the desert: Abe's relationship with Cleo. It could mean their relationship is dry, windy, sandy, barren, fruitless, or it could mean it's hot and passionate. The hat is being pushed around by the wind, which definetly shows Cleo is in charge of Abe.
    The cherry pie setting on fire: The original Joan of Arc was burnt a virgin. Clone Joan is worried of the same thing, either dying or being killed, still a virgin.
    The rose: Roses often symbolize passion, even though they are just the reproductive organs of plants, and they can't even tell when someone visits them.
    Setting on fire: Joan's passion is as consuming as a fire.
    A heart: Joan's love. Note, it's just sitting there, not doing anything or being used.
    Gabe coughing: ??? Maybe Joan fears Abe is getting sick? Gabe's bodily fluids (germs, saliva) are shot out into the enivronment via his mouth?
    Bagpipes: A device that shoots a hot liquid (air) out of itself. This could be a metaphor for Abe again. (Or it's just ???. I don't know...)
    Steaming pot: A device that shoots a hot liquid out of itself. Another metaphor for Abe? (Or, just a low budget.)
    Whisper, whisper: Performed first slow, then fast. Joan wants something that starts off slow, then goes fast. (Or, just more ???)
    Slapping the watermellon: Could be translated quite literally, as Joan simply wants to slap around Abe's-- green watermellon. (Or, ?????)
    Shush: Gabe wants to keep his love for Joan a secret.
    Fin: The end

    This is just some of my opinions (and some stuff I found on a site). Use your imaginations, she's in love with Abe and trying to convey the message to him, what do you think some of these 'loose' metaphors could mean?

    Screw Flanders! Screw Flanders!
