Requiem for a Dream Easter Egg - The Third Life-Changing Choice
Tappy Tibbons (Christopher McDonald) is the character on the infomercials that Sara Goldfarb (Ellen Burstyn) keeps watching on TV. Tappy explains that he did three things to change his life. One is "no red meat"; the second is "no refined sugar"; but he never reveals the third one aloud.
The third guideline, however, is in the movie. If you have the DVD, go to 35:58. It's right after the fast-motion sequence when Sara cleans her apartment. She sits down and turns on the TV to see Tappy's infomercial. Pause it, and you can see written on his dry erase board:
1. No red meat
2. No refined sugar
3. No orgasm
He tells the audience at one point "I know some people are not going to like this," referring to the secretive third guideline. Now we know that he wasn't kidding!
