Connect the dots, man!

Post by chrissy » Sat Apr 20, 2013 11:27 pm

Russ and I believe we have heard the phrase "Connect the dots, man...connect the dots!" in a movie, most probably uttered by a conspiracy theorist, but can't think of what movie this could be from. I asked the question on Yahoo! Answers and got only one reply: spiderman.

So...what do you think? Is this a line from one of the Spider-Man movies? Offhand, we're not sure. Any fans of the movies want to weigh in?

Thanks!

I haven't had a chance to watch the Spider-Man movies recently, but it's not ringing any bells.

For some reason I can picture Kevin Smith saying this in Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4), but I really doubt it's in there.

I know a similar line is in the Manchurian Candidate (the remake at least), but it's said as a command to a specific character, not as a general statement like you're talking about.

And this defintiely isn't what you're looking for, but I thought I'd mention it anyway: Woody Allen talks about pornographic connect-the-dots t-shirts in Sleeper. :)

Oh, jeez.

What about Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson?
