I seem to remember a long debate about this.  I didn't keep a tally or
anything, but I think it's not at all clear that BOB is unhappy in that
scene.  He's just a crazed insane being.  He's exultant and triumphant,
not angry.  He looks a little angry because he's rather unpleasant.  I
don't think that a psychotic, evil spirit should have a smile on his face.
So don't ask somebody to explain something we haven't all accepted.

Other items:
1) Sorry for saying "Philly".  One bonehead said it was Philadelphia
and the rest of us boneheads followed suit.  Also, as a Bostonian, I
know how stupid it sounds to hear someone say "Beantown", and I guess
the same applies.  Ditto "Frisco".

2) I found Leo's kazoo noises to be rather more mournful than enraged.
But he's still menacing.  The shades enhanced it.

3) MIKE only inhabits P. M. Gerard, not other people like Ronette, as
somebody suggested.
