Gotta go with Nick. As Shana put it the other night: Yes, Tony almost rapes someone and does nothing to stop another rape, but he's a very young man living in an world that taught him no better. Those are the rules he was taught to live by. Nick, however, has a daughter, is in his 40s, and should know better. Yet, he goes out of his way to ruin someone just because she's in his way.

Nick was raised in a strip-club - I'd argue he knew no better either. The age thing does make sense - he should've cottoned on to what a twat he is before he was 40 - but at worst he is sexist.

That's not to downplay sexism, but allowing rape/attempting rape is worse in my eyes.

I vote Travolta at the bigger douche.

I mean Tony.

...I mean Travolta.

This was the hardest one for me so far. A budding rapist vs. a misogynist. Tony is young, it's the 70s. He'll be shaped by a woman yet. Nick has a teenage daughter. Look at what he did to her life. At least later in life Tony repents and becomes a scientologist. Oh, wait...
