- Delbert Mc Clintock is a goldmine of funny moments, especially the scene where here encounters a lone spider just outside a client's house; spraying it seemingly has no effect so what does he do? March right up to the creepy crawly and step on it with a sickening crunch. Afterwards a dog barks at him, causing him to casually reply "yeah that's right. I'm bad!"
