Last Words


Ah, the decrepit elegance of environmental evils. As Roberto Benigni says to Tom Waits in Down by Law, "It's a sad and beautiful world."

Mr. McGuire: I just want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Ben: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Ben: Yes I am.
Mr. McGuire: Plastics.
Ben: Exactly how do you mean?
Mr. McGuire: There's a great future in plastics. Think about it.
--The Graduate (1967)
