Richie The Baumer Tenenbaum Sitting on a Tennis Court With No Shoes and One Sock


I love this still from the movie "Royal Tenenbaums": Richie Tenenbaum (Luke Wilson) has a meltdown at a tennis match, takes off both his shoes and one sock and sits down. He loses the match against Ghandi.

I don’t know, Jim. There’s obviously something wrong with him. He’s taken off his shoes and one of his socks and… actually, I think he’s crying.

So far this series has mostly featured “real” people – but let’s make an exception. First because this scene and the movie are just great, second this photo hangs framed in my apartment (which inspired me to use it here).
