Orson Welles was particularly fond of the parable of the scorpion and
the frog (or was it a turtle).  The pay-off was always the scorpion saying
"that is my nature" as he killed his rider across the water.  It's in
several of his movies.  It's near the start of his "The Trial," and
repeated more as part of the "plot" later near the end.   Another story
that is embedded is Bruce Willis's tale about his father's watch in
Pulp Fiction.  liz weis cuny
