Harry Hates Linguini

Detective Harry Callahan.  He seems to work in a crack against Linguine or Linguine eaters in several of his movies.  It might be universal, in every movie.

I guess Dirty Harry really does hate everyone.

I noticed it in Sudden Impact.  When mobster Threlikis is vapor locked into a miacardial infarction during his grandaughter's wedding by Harry's meddling, Harry gets off a one-liner.

In the first two movies, Harry's normal partner is a portly Italian that in both movies it is said "he eats too much linguine."  This is Dirty Harry and Magnum Force movies.

Now I have to watch the rest on something I can pause and rewind to see if there are more pasta references.  Lessee...  The Enforcer and Dead Pool.   This is imporant gun related research, you know.

Man does he hate pasta...

Clearly he's alluding to his past work in spaghetti westerns. I'm sure if we looked hard enough we could find references to sauce as well. "Go ahead, punk, make my bolognese."

Well hell. Now I have to drag out my Dirty Harry collection and watch them all, again. The things I go through to help people out. ;)
