What's with the oxygen?



Dennis Hopper takes a bottle from his desk drawer and takes a hit off it - I had always assumed it was nitrous or something, but I just watched it for the first time in years and that bottle says oxygen on it

Why would he do that?

"...because oxygen gets you high"

It doesn't though

Of course, bottles of 'water' always have water in them... right?

It's a joke nod to Blue Velvet.

Nice try, but this movie came out before Blue Velvet.

reply

I stand corrected, for some reason I thought Blue Velvet was done earlier. Clearly I've had too much oxygen.

very weird both characters inhale something from a tank...Its like that one actor who always opens a bottle of pills and chews them,....the moving guy in Funny farm does it when the bridge falls and the same actor does the same in dumb and dumber...

Pure Oxygen can get you high. Oxygen out of a tank untreated with anything else is highly addictive.
