Christine : Why did Arnie's mom blame Dennis for buying that car?

Why did Arnie's mom blame Dennis for buying that car?

He's his friend not his mother. It was Arnie's choice. What exactly was she expecting from him?

Re: Why did Arnie's mom blame Dennis for buying that car?

Probably out of desperation. She sees her nice but nerdy son turn into a rebellious *beep* and has to blame someone.

I never liked that she was so mad about it. She and Arnie's dad should have gone outside and looked at the car together.

Exactly!

This irritated me, as well.

Dennis was Arnie's friend, not his mother. It wasn't his job to be Arnie's moral compass. The mother was domineering and insufferable. I get that he was 17 - a minor and still under her upbringing but clearly her constant nagging and incessant need for control was clearly toxic to the family dynamic. This, no doubt, had an impact on Arnie.

The mother was insufferable.
She was an image conscious, controlling narcissistic bitch. Her husband was weak too. She thought she meant well, yet she couldn't deal with her own insecurities and entitlement issues, and passed the blame onto Dennis.

Arnie was free to make his own choices and whilst Christine was evil and took a hold of him because of his vulnerability, Christine was something his folks assisted in manifesting into their lives as well, due to how they smothered and pressured Arnie to be something they expected of him.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?
