Jamaica with Tom Waits

I knew going into this episode from Wikipedia that filming this episode so strained Tom Waits & John Lurie's friendship that they didn't speak to one another for two years. Obviously, we're only privy to an episode with a run time of 27:35 so plenty was said and done that we never get to see. But from what is in the episode, I don't understand just what right Tom Waits had to become indignant. After all, he's the guy who put a fish in his pants.

Waits is genuinely, naturally funny but the fish-in-the-pants gag was so over the top that I confess, it made me a tad uncomfortable. That aside, this was a noticeably stronger episode than the first one with Jim Jarmusch.
