The name Perfect Tommy is from the same movie that provided our cattery name, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension. Perfect Tommy is one of the Hong Kong Cavaliers, and can always be found close to Buckaroo's side.
One of Perfect Tommy's defining moments from the film happens the morning after the Artie's Artery concert. Buckaroo has come to the jail to satisfy his curiousity about the woman (Penny Priddy) who turned up at the concert with a gun.
After a brief exchange with Penny, Buckaroo turns to Perfect Tommy and says "We're getting her out of here. Give her your jacket."
Perfect Tommy's response "Why me."
The perfectly deadpan response from Buckaroo, "Because you're perfect."
To which Tommy replies "You've got a point there."
