Fridge / The Pebble and the Penguin

Fridge Horror:

  • Drake's intentions with Marina. He's not the first villain to attempt to force the heroine to marry him, but listen to the things he says. Watch them together. It's unsettlingly clear that he would have beaten and raped her without hesitation. Some people compare him to Gaston.
    • Really hammered in in the climax of the movie...Drake drags/carries Marina down the stairs of his lair before Hubie shows up to save her. Marina cries for him to let her go, and "You're hurting me!" Drake's response is a nasty laugh, a leer, and "Get used to it."
  • Don't Make Me Laugh. It's barely even Getting Crap Past the Radar - even an 8 year old would realise that there's something dreadfully wrong going on here - more so than usual. And as soon as you're old enough to add the word 'rape' to your vocabulary, you know that's what he plans.
    • Despite all the threats on her life, "May I suggest you would do best to beg!" could be the rapiest line in the song. Beg for what? Talk about Nightmare Fuel...
    • And then there's this creepy little line: "Don't make me laugh so hard that you begin to ACHE!" There's barely any ambiguity here...he's threatening to beat her.
