Why in Database: In this movie there is a character of Captain Archie Turtle (in the attached screenshot it is the gentleman on the right). He introduces himself like this, but when he leaves the company, they have a certain laugh about his name. One of them even asks if there was a story about a fox and a turtle, but his interlocutor states that she means The Tortoise and the Hare.

-Captain Turtle.
-How do you do?
-A Turtle, yes, sir. I will buzz along. You know, a little bubbly water.
– Yes, run along.
-Excuse us.
-Careful, dear.
-Yes, mother.
-Is his name really Turtle?
-Yes, Turtle.
– Archie Turtle, yes. Why?
– I don’t know.
– What’s the joke?
-It’s no joke, Charles.
-What’s no joke?
– Captain Turtle! Isn’t there a fable about a fox and a turtle?
– You mean, the hare and the turtle.
