Anger ManagementEdit

In 1978, Arnie Shankman was a bully who tormented all of the local kids in Brooklyn, New York. Despite this, Dave Buznik admittedly felt bad for him, due to his sister going insane. Seconds before Dave was about to kiss his dream girl Sarah Plowman, Arnie pulled down his gym shorts and underwear, embarrassing him in front of everybody. This left Dave with lasting trauma about public affection, as well as repressing his emotions.

Years later, Arnie became a Buddhist monk and was remorseful for his previous actions behavior, except for pulling down Dave's gym shorts and underwear when they were still kids.[1]
