Weight is a spot. When he asked if he needed to lose weight, he was asking if he needed to spot Eddy, rubbing in his dominance.

Right on. I watched it again the other day and for the first time thought about why he asked that. I thought the same thing.


Never waste perfectly good sarcasm on someone to stupid to understand it.

So "let me ask you something, I want you to be real honest, do you think I need to lose some weight?" while he is breaking down his cue and leaving is him asking Eddie if Eddie wants a spot?

I'm not convinced.

Thanks

I think he was just rubbing a little salt in the wound.

It was just sarcasm. Totally unrelated to what just happened on the pool table. Adding insult to injury.

I always thought it was funny too, now that I've watched the scene again and asked the question, I think it was deep. I'd like to see some explanations before I offer mine, but looking at the scene again it sure doesn't look to me that Amos is offering up a spot.

Thanks

Kevin

How is his asking the guy he just beat if he should lose some weight a sarcastic insult?

Thanks

I think it was him rubbing in the fact he was hustled by asking a completely off the wall question, showing how at ease he was with the whole thing, and to downplay it.

Kind of like someone being terrified to bungy jump, they do it and right afterwards, they downplay the whole thing by saying something like " You know, I was thinking, I will move my couch over by the wall"

It's rubbing it in, by showing the whole thing was so easy for him and he's acting so casual by asking such a off the cuff question

i don't know if i agree with what the guy's saying but i can understand how it could be sarcasm.

he leads into it with the, i want you to be honest with me bit, like he's going to ask something important and maybe meaningful and asks something unrelated and kind of stupid.

it's funny. like asking everyone at a funeral what they thought of "the money pit"

You know its a good scene/movie when they leave some stuff to the imagination....

It could be interpreted different ways.


My call is that the "fat" is part of his hustle....Eddie "thought" he was going to beat up on some dumb fat kid....Forrest is confirming that Eddie got hustled by a "dumb fat kid"

In short he was basically saying a rhetorical question to Eddie...."So what do you think of my hustle"
