TinTin analyzes Haddock as a hedonistic dissonant…
TinTin: Let me get this straight. You were at Stabas at three, checking emails. Your flight was at nine. How could anyone –
Haddock: Miss the flight? It happens.
TinTin: But this is the third time in as many years.
Haddock: Well. There have been - um - mitigating circumstances.
TinTin: Is it something to do with not wanting to waste a minute? Catching the latest possible train to the airport?
Haddock: I - I don’t have a gold card to get into a lounge.
TinTin: Because you always take cheap flights. False economies. And another thing. This being the last one to board before the doors close. Hedonistic dissonance, wouldn't you say?
Haddock: Excuse me?
TinTin: The risk taker who deliberately acts to bring about a negative result.
Haddock: Not deliberate. Anyway, I can catch tomorrow’s flight.
TinTin: You’re too old to be always sailing so close to the wind.
TinTin is trying to make a point, but isn't quite able to throw Haddock out of the ring who is in vehement denial. However, the jury awards TinTin the bout.
