Video Examples / Establishing Character Moment



Peter Venkman

Venkman is first shown giving an ESP test to two students in which a wrong answer is followed by an electric shock. Because one of his test subjects is an attractive female student, Venkman keeps saying her guesses are correct even when they aren't — and always shocks the male subject even when he gets one right. This reveals Venkman as a Jerkass and a man who thinks with his groin. Note that he tips a little smile and wink to the female student as he reaches for the button after the male's correct guess; after the guy storms out, Venkman asks her to meet with him in private later that evening.

How well does it match the trope?
