What makes Mel Brooks so good with satire is that he attacks it from every angle. Like Abrams and Zucker, Brooks does more than just to spoof scenes and characters. It's his knowledge of the genre that allows him to create satire so good, you think it's a spoof of a scene but it's actually original material.
Here we find Nurse Diesel (Cloris Leachman) and Dr. Montague (Harvey Korman) plotting their next move. The camera attempts to capture the drama and build the suspense but is met with constant resistance from over propping. Shot from beneath a glass table, the camera attempts to do the scene justice, but finds itself constantly having to out-maneuver cream dispensers and dessert plates. It's an excellent nod to the genre without being too overt and may be the only example in movie history where the actors make it impossible for a good close-up.
