"19.11. Mies työntää kätensä polttavan kuumalle hellalle, joten lääkäri toteaa, että liesi on naisten työväline - ei miesten. Hanki kuule poika vaimoke ja anna sen kokata sinulle. Ilmeisesti mies ymmärtää tämän väärin, koska hän alkaa ampua naisia kiikarikiväärillä. The Sniper tarjoilee ihan kelvollisen keskustelunavauksen vallitseviin sukupuolinäkemyksiin ja naisvihaan."
