comment What was the meaning of Schultz's flashback of dogs?
+1 to me, it was more of a transformation: Schultz begins the movie mildly opposed to slavery and ends the movie fiercely hating slavery. But either way could support your idea that he then killed Candie out of disgust over slavery.

+1 good points. I edited the question to remove the references to Broomhilda, which were not necessary.

comment What was the purpose of Candie's handshake in Django Unchained?
@Christian now that you mention it, I might ask a second question about what Candie had in mind...

That explanation makes sense, Matt - thanks. Although I took the flashback to the dogs as Schultz thinking "he's going to kill us anyway, so I might as well take him out."

comment Was Bugs Bunny impersonating someone when he ate the carrot?
+1 well done. hey, anyone happen to know if Bugs's line "what's up, Doc?" is spoken by Clark Gable while he's chomping the carrot?

So Schultz essentially committed suicide, just to win a battle of egos? To me, such recklessness would be inconsistent with his character's behavior through rest of film. But maybe that was the point -- maybe that's how upset Candie made him. Hmm.
