Cliffhanger (1993) – Filmsack Show Notes

Cliffhanger (1993)


Oh hi,

and welcome to “Rocky Mountain High: the highest gift store in Colorado.” Elevation wise that is. Marijuana laws have taken a turn since we took on that slogan during 90s. Now, how may I help you?

Do we have any discount harnesses of questionable quality? Why yes, yes we do…it’s one of our top sellers. We like to call this particular model the “so you think your girlfriend is sleeping with your co-worker and you want to get rid of her and blame said co-worker but you need it to look like an accident” oopsie loopsie… noooo …harness. You’ll take it? Would you like that gift wrapped? no? And might I also recommend a knee brace to really sell the whole story? Ok, I’ll just throw that in at a 5% discount.

Anything else? A stuffed toy puppy? Who’s this for? The girlfriend. You aren’t going to let this stuffed toy puppy fall to its death as well are you? You promise? You are going to keep it safe? Ok, this is a freebie but I better not find it at at the bottom of a gorge someplace covered in dead girlfriend.

Alright, will that do it for today? Can I interest you in a human sled that looks like Sylvester Stallone? It’s reversible. Also, we have 60 year old ropes on sale. How about some Bat repellent? No? Ok then. That will be $5 dollars and 69 cents.

What’s this? oh sorry sir, we don’t accept unexchangeable denominations of 1000 dollar bills…that is all you have? Ok, So, I’ll just be taking back my toy puppy now ya piece of shit. Randy, show this gentle out the door and down the cliff.
