Scary Movie 2 is a classic horror-comedy that has become a cult favorite since its release in 2001. One of the most memorable scenes in the movie involves a creepy butler who repeatedly says, “Take my strong hand.”
But did he really say that? Let’s take a closer look.
Firstly, it’s important to note that the butler character is played by actor Chris Elliott, who has a reputation for playing bizarre and eccentric roles. In Scary Movie 2, he portrays Hanson, the butler of Hell House.
In the scene in question, Hanson offers his hand to one of the characters, Brenda Meeks (played by Regina Hall), who is hanging from a balcony. As Brenda reaches for his hand, Hanson starts saying, “Take my..” and then pauses before continuing with “hand.”
While some viewers have claimed that Hanson says “Take my strong hand,” this isn’t actually what he says. The line as written in the script is simply “Take my hand.” It’s possible that viewers misheard or misremembered the line due to its popularity and repetition on social media.
Regardless of what was actually said, this scene has become one of the most iconic moments from Scary Movie 2 and has been parodied and referenced in countless memes and pop culture moments.
If you haven’t seen Scary Movie 2 yet, it’s definitely worth checking out for this scene alone. And if you’re already a fan of the movie, rewatching it with this new perspective might give you a fresh appreciation for just how weird and wonderful it truly is.
So there you have it – while many believe that the butler in Scary Movie 2 says “Take my strong hand,” he actually just says “Take my hand.” But regardless of what was said, there’s no denying that this scene has become an enduring part of pop culture history.
