good will hunting.

although i have not yet watched this film my older brother decided to show me this scene, and he thought it was amazing. he was right.
from 'good will hunting'.

 


Of course that's your contention. You're a first year grad student.You just finished some Marxian historian, Pete Garrison prob'ly, and so naturally that's what you believe until next month when you get to James Lemon and get convinced that Virginia and Pennsylvania were strongly entrepreneurial and capitalist back in 1740. That'll last until sometime in your second year, then you'll be in here regurgitating Gordon Wood about the Pre-revolutionary utopia and the capital-forming effects of military mobilization.

 Well, as a matter of fact, I won't, because Wood drastically underestimates the impact of--

--"Wood drastically underestimates the impact of social distinctions predicated upon wealth, especially inheriated wealth..." You got that from "Work in Essex County," Page 421, right? Do you have any thoughts of your own on the subject or were you just gonna plagerize the whole book for me? Look, don't try to pass yourself off as some kind of an intellect at the expense of my friend just to impress these girls. The sad thing is, in about 50 years you might start doin' some thinkin' on your own and by then you'll realize there are only two certainties in life.

Yeah? What're those?

One, don't do that. Two-- you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on an education you coulda' picked up for a dollar fifty in late charges at the Public Library.

But I will have a degree, and you'll be serving my kids fries at a drive through on our way to a skiing trip.

Maybe. But at least I won't be a prick.
