Review episode 7 -Shore leave-

Post  SaladMakerFan on Mon Feb 04, 2008 1:13 am

As Salad Fingers is digging holes outside with his finger puppets, occasionally tasting the sand, he finds the decomposing torso of an old corpse. Salad Fingers immediately "recognizes" the cadaver as "Kenneth," his "younger brother" who is back from the previously mentioned "Great War" on shore leave. Salad Fingers pulls the gruesome, dismembered corpse out of the hole, saying it was rude of him to leave for the "the Great War" without him, but promises to draw him a hot bath.

The next scene shows Salad Fingers turning a cog which pulls clothesline, drawing Kenneth out of a wardrobe, now dressed in a suit. Salad Fingers has prepared a dinner of sand for his guest, saying "I—hope you like... SAND". Salad Fingers tells Kenneth of his life, keeping busy with "every shift I can... [and] sing[ing] at all the functions". There is a flashback in which Salad Fingers measures the distance from his door to a tree and subsequently teases it for its slow movement.

It is now evening, and Salad Fingers is with Kenneth outside near the same hole he found him in. He cries over the fact that Kenneth has to go "back to the ghastly trenches," suggesting that the "Great War" may be a reference to World War I. Also, World War I war was once called the "Great War," before the second World War. He salutes Kenneth and sings "We'll Meet Again" for him. He then kicks Kenneth back into the hole. A dream-like sequence follows in which Salad Fingers sings the same song, in a white dress, on a stage in front of an audience of a theatre. After singing a few strains, he complains to the pianist - who is a puppet, with strings attached - that the key is wrong, walks off the stage, and the screen fades to black.
