The one thing that’s always bothered me about The Hurt Locker. One scene, I mean. Actually a single line of dialogue. A jocular U.S. Colonel (David Morse) asks Jeremy Renner‘s Sgt. James, a bomb-defusal Jedi, “What’s the best way to defuse one of these things?” And Renner answers, “Duhwayuhdohndyesuh.” I’ve seen this over and over, and each time I’ve asked myself “what?…what is Renner saying, for God’s sake? Has he ever tried speaking with marbles in his mouth, or taken elocution lessons? Twenty dwarves took turns doing handstands on the carpet.”

It finally hit me the last time I saw it. Renner is saying “the way you don’t die, sir.”
