Bull Durham: To the True Meaning of The First Fight Scene
The theme of this paper is to dissect the first fight scene; in the
movie Bull Durham, between Crash Davis; who is played by Kevin Costner; and
"Nuke" LaLoosh; who is played by Tim Robbins. The fight takes place in a bar
scene between these two men who have never met before. The reason for the fight
is that Crash Davis is talking to a women by the name of Annie Savoy who is
sitting at one of the tables. Nuke already believes that Annie is going to be
with him all season long, but Crash believes otherwise.
In the beginning of the scene Nuke is dancing with all of the women in
the bar while Crash is sitting alone in the corner of the bar. Crash then
orders a drink for Annie, and is then asked by Annie to come over and sit by her.
Crash introduces himself to Annie and tells her that he is the new catcher on
the Durham Bulls baseball team. At the same time Nuke comes over and ask Annie
to dance, but Crash stands up and says that she is dancing with him. When Crash
stands up in front of him, Nuke takes this as a challenge and he asks Crash if
he wants to take it outside. At this point Nuke still does not know that Crash
is his new catcher. While Nuke is waiting for Crash outside, Crash begins to
wonder how he is going give Nuke his first lesson to make it to the majors.
When Crash finally comes outside he sees that Nuke is standing in the
middle of the street. Nuke is not alone he has the entire baseball team
standing behind him. First, Crash says that he does not want to fight him.
When Crash says this everyone else begins to tease Crash. Next, Crash tells
Nuke to throw the first punch, but Nuke refuses to. So instead, Crash tells
Nuke to throw a baseball as hard as he can right at Crash\'s chest. When Nuke
hears this everyone around him including himself begin to laugh, because they
know how hard Nuke can throw and that it could kill Crash if it hit him in the
chest or the head.
During this entire time Crash is keeping a cool head. He knows that the
chance of Nuke hitting him is very small. Also, he tells Nuke that he won\'t be
able to do it because he is beginning to think about it. Crash goes so far as
to say that Nuke\'s aim is so bad that he could not hit water if he fell out of a
boat. Crash also says that his million dollar body could do it, but its his
five cent head that is holding him back. Finally, Nuke becomes so upset that he
throws the ball at Crash, but misses and ends up breaking a window. Crash looks
at the hole that Nuke just made and say ball four. When Crash says this, Nuke
comes at him and tries to punch him. Before he can, Crash punches him right in
the nose and causes him to fall to the ground. After Crash knocks him to the
ground, he introduces himself to Nuke as his new catcher and helps him up. In
the end, Crash invites Nuke back inside for a beer and to talk.
The number of communicational concepts that appear in this short
interaction is very high. The mental distractions that are present in this
argument are factual distractions and semantic distractions. A factual
distraction occurs when someone focuses so intently on details that they miss
the main point. This is exactly what Crash\'s intentions were when he was trying
to make fun on Nuke in front the rest of the baseball team. Nuke was so angry
at Crash for calling him names and insulting him that he could not hit Crash
with the baseball. The other mental distraction that occurs is semantic. A
semantic distraction occurs when someone over responds to an emotion-laden word
or concept. Crash also brings this upon Nuke when Crash says to Nuke "Your just
pissing away that million dollar body of yours with that five cent head."
Another very common event in today\'s society is stereotyping. The
stereotyping that occurred in this engagement was categorizing or when someone
looks at another person and they think they know what kind of person they are.
When Crash stands up to Nuke in the
