I keep picturing Jack Nicholson in About Schmidt. Rummy wandering the aisles of the Pick 'n Save in a robe and slippers filling up a grocery cart with frozen meals. Just replace "Dear Ndugu" with Richard III's near-moment of conscience:

"There is no creature loves me;
And if I die, no soul shall pity me:
Nay, wherefore should they, since that I myself
Find in myself no pity to myself?"
