Charly

1968 – Howard and Robin love this movie.  This is the movie that a retarded Cliff Robertson is turned into a genius as a scientific experiment, but the results wear off, and he slowly becomes retarded again, though this time aware of what is happening to him.  They’ve referenced this movie lots of times, and the book it was based on, Flowers for Algernon, in regards to their various wack-packers’ intelligence.

 A plastic surgeon was talking about how 
Howard and the gang could look better with either 
botox or surgery, and Howard said he didn't want to 
become good looking only to end up like Charly in 
Flowers for Algernon, having to watch his looks 
disappear.
