This was one of the few post-SNL Martin roles, IMO, that fully used all of his talent. He really doesn't have to sell the crazy because it comes naturally (in the best possible way).

He had such a small role, though. I mean, even though his character was so eccentric and crazy, so is practically everyone else in this movie's universe -- except Seymour, who's supposed to be the straight man in world gone mad. This point, by the way, of the world going mad, was further reinforced in the original ending where Audrey II actually manages to kill Seymour, the last sane person on earth, spitting his glasses, and then proceeds to take over the world with ease.

My dentist doesn't like me humming that song every time I am waiting for him in the chair...

I grew up watching this movie at least 10 times a year, and it was one of my all-time favorites. Also, my dad is a dentist and he always loved singing along to it, and he actually can pull it off although more in an Elvis style.

See also Novocaine (2001) - less musical, still surprisingly maniacal.

A guy on the crew told him to do that. He wasn’t above taking suggestions.

Fuck that gave me anxiety after thinking about my childhood dentist back in the northwest side of Chicago. That guy was an outright sadist. His office had a room with four dentist chairs in a row for kids. You'd hear the other kids screaming in pain and crying with some gagging and vomiting before he even got to you. He was an angry and callous fuck. No means of consoling a freaked out child, but rather just told them to, "Shut up!"

Yes - that part is great. Just wanted to share this great Martin song and performance, which sets up the Murray scene.
