Headscratchers / Dragnet

  • In The Movie, during the Virgin Sacrifice scene, how is it Friday, Streebek, nor the Virgin Connie Swail (or even the snake) weren't even affected by those chemicals, after it had been explained at least twice that mixed together they form a liquid fertilizer that, "Burns the eyes, noses, throat, and lungs, induces vomitting, and if continually inhaled, death"?
    • The chemicals weren't used then, they were intended to be used to assassinate Jerry Caesar later in the movie.
  • How is it that an anal-retentive, law-abiding cop, like Joe Friday, would drive up at the beginning of the film an park in front of a fire hydrant?
