    with a fan

    The following is a description of the movie Tommy Boy.

    Davis Spade's use of sarcasm in this movie is funny. It's used as a cover for his anger. Also, Tommy Boy (played by the late Chris Farley) provides comic relief in many scenes including one with a fan where he is saying "Luke, I am your father."

    In the above, does the "fan" refer to "the thing that you wave with your hand which makes the air cooler," or some other thing?

    Thank you.

    Hi unpakwon

    The actor is sitting in front of a fan saying "Luke I am your Father" to imitate Darth Vader's voice (from the movie Star Wars).

    [Tommy Boy just gets his new office and starts talking into a fan]
    Tommy: Luke, I am your fa-ther.

    Click here Tommy Boy to read that part of the script.

    Re: with a fan

    I see.

    Then, the fan here seems to refer to the machine that makes the air cooler.

    Thank you for the answer and material.

    Thanks. . I'd never have guessed. For some reason I was trying to fit one of the old-style manual fans (the sort that Eliza Doolittle has to use - http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:..._lovebound.jpg) into the image, and it just didn't work.
