A bit more than you can chew?

We’ve all seen that great scene in Mrs Doubtfire, when Robin Williams, aka Mrs. D, wraps her arms
round Piearce Brosnan’s waste and, after a series of bone crunching squeezes, causes him to eject
the prawn onto the table. Well, it worked, so it was clearly effective, but was it really the best
course of action? Nearly, but no cigar! When Brosnan first gets into trouble he’s gasping and
wheezing, so the best thing would be to encourage him to cough, instead of patting him ineffectually
on the back, as Miranda Hillard does.
