If you’ve never seen the movie They Live (shame on you), it’s a horror/comedy/sci-fi film from the late eighties starring Keith David and Roddy Piper. There are a bunch of aliens in the film disguised as humans who can only be seen in their true form by a special pair of glasses.
After learning the secret of the glasses, Roddy Piper’s character (John Nada) tries to get Keith David’s character (Frank Armitage) to put them on and see what all the fuss is about. But Frank isn’t hearing any of that crap, so instead of putting on the glasses he starts throwing punches at John. And the two of them fight. And they fight some more. And you start to think, “man, this is a long fight scene.” And then they fight some more. Then you think, “this is the longest fight scene I’ve ever experienced,” and they fight some more. It’s epic.
So whenever Olive and Hazel are duking it out in the middle of the night, my mind always goes back to that scene. In fact, I’m watching it right now.
