As the J.D. candidate in the dining room just pointed out, it is SOUR CREAM rather than COTTAGE CHEESE that Burl Ives declares his love for and then begins to eat with a fork in the so-tense dinner scene of White Dog. This happens after the three characters tour, I think, Paul Winfield's house, where there is a psuedo-science lab for his home experiments, then sit down to their conquering-racism-through-dog-retraining celebratory dinner, all seated on the same side of the table (naturally!) and Burl DIGS IN to a pile of sour cream for his first bite, despite having a full plate of non-condiment food in front of him.
