    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Nasty Mother of the Bride: First they use a thin and pretty bride-to-be. Whenever the mother leaves, everyone else in the store has her back. They support her, console her if she is crying, tell her that this is your day and you should be so happy. Some are dismissing of the mother's attitude, saying it is a tense time for everyone. Now a plus size actress is used as the bride-to-be. When the mother leaves, other people still comfort the daughter. One talks to the mother about it. Most of the other girls give the mother harsh looks. One woman takes her aside and specifically tells her not to call her daughter fat, saying she would never call her own child ugly.

      • Refusing Birth Control: The younger actress (16 years old) is quickly supported by one man who tells her that the pharmacist is wrong. Another man waits until she leaves then bursts out his support for the pharmacist! A woman notes that refusing to fill a prescription is against the law. Next the older teen (18 years old) has much of the same reactions. Two nuns actually walk in the pharmacy store and they have split decisions about the scene they see. Only 4 people in total thought the pharmacist was right, with many more saying he was wrong. But only 1 person challenged the pharmacist directly.

      • Collapsing on the Street: Women in busy Newark collapses, on average within 4 seconds, someone is stopping to ask if she is okay. Both men and women stop. Next, a man who looks quite shabby and may be homeless falls down on the street. Most actually pass by until one woman called 911. Even if they did not want to touch the man, they called for help. However, it took an average of 3 minutes. In the final scenario, a man with a beer can and a garbage bag falls to the ground. Over 80 people walk by before 1 woman stops and needs to ask someone to call 911 because she does not have a cell phone and is often homeless herself. She gathers a crowd and a few people actually stop to help her.

      • College Hazing: When boys were hazing other boys, whenever one person stepped up, usually others started to help out as well. However, when the hazing victims were female, a lot of men did not stop on their own. Some actually joined in with the hazing. However, when one of the girl victims cries, this gets the attention from everyone.
