The funny thing is, I remember that scene.

Anne Thompson just posted this under the headline “Most Impressive IMDB Page“; and to judge from the IMDB’s message board for this person, this was one of those things that got turned into a short-lived internet meme about eight months ago:

The bizarre thing is, just seeing this IMDB page reminds me of how I watched the film on TV with my sister more than 20 years ago — probably while the parents were out — and while I haven’t seen the film since, I am pretty sure I remember the scene in question.

If memory serves, a woman urinates herself when the nukes first hit England and the mushroom clouds start to rise, right?

It wasn’t every day that you saw that on television, back then.
