    Reminds me of

    HEAT where Pacino and De Niro sit down together.

    RAIDERS where Indy and Belloq sit down together.

    You could try examining those scenes.

    Thanks, but the scene's written now.

    I used Penpilot's idea. The villain's mother loved white prickly poppies, but the rest of the folks in her town thought they were just weeds, so she used magic and breeding to create a thornless variant and sold them in another town as "wedding daisies." In the same vein, the villain thinks ethnic minorities should remove everything "thorny" about their culture and way of life, and assimilate peacefully into the larger culture around them.
