“The Cable Guy” quotes(1996)
Plot – The young architect Steven Kovacs is alone because his girlfriend Robin Harris dumped him. The "cable guy" has noticed it because of the TV subscription’s bill. Steven finds the courage to ask him free access to the programs and, as a friend suggested, he offers him $50. The 'cable guy’, aka Chip Douglas, is looking for a friend and he scares him leading him to the Satellites Centre to see the big satellite dish. Since the TV doesn’t work in Steven’s flat, Chip fixes everything: the technical intervention is part of the strategy of “conquest of the friend”. The invitation to the restaurant Middle Ages is also part of it. The two guys enjoy the show and at the end they get involved in a medieval tournament with a lot of spears, shields, maces and punches. Steven does not seem excited about the "kindness" of the troublemaker, so Chip organizes the last surprise: he decorates a room with a majestic television hardware. Then the two friends hang out together again: they drink a lot, they dance and sing.
