3. National Guard Comments Uncanny

6. Wow! This was actually in the movie "Good Will Hunting"?
Edited on Sun Feb-05-06 10:56 PM by Straight Shooter
That is amazing precognition. I don't even remember that scene, and the sad thing is, I don't remember it because it didn't stand out at the time as being anything outlandish. It seemed to be a perfectly natural statement for an intelligent person to make under the circumstances.

Thanks for finding this. :thumbsup:

edit: Nominated. This has got to be seen by as many as possible.

8. Not trying to hijack the thread, but I have
another favorite quote from that movie:
------------------------
WILL: There is a lengthy legal precedent, your honor, going back to 1789, whereby a defendant can claim self-defense against an agent of the government, if that act is deemed a defense against tyranny, a defense of liberty.

PROSECUTOR: Your Honor...

WILL: Henry Lloyd Beecher in Proverbs from the Plymouth Pulpit, 1887 says, and I quote--

PROSECUTOR: 1887? This is the 20th century, your honor.

WILL: Excuse me. Excuse me.

PROSECUTOR: You're making a mockery of the court here!

WILL: I'm afforded the right to speak in my own defense, sir, by the Constitution of the United States. This is the same document that guarantees my liberty.

PROSECUTOR: Hey, don't tell me about the Constitution of the United States.

WILL: Now, liberty, in case you've forgotten, is the soul's right to breathe. And when it cannot take a long breath, laws are girded too tight. Without liberty, man is a syncope

PROSECUTOR: Man is a what?

WILL: Ibid, your honor..

15. What I like about the quote is the 2.50 a gallon.
If you can remember back to 97, that was seen as unbelievable high price for gas.. yet here we are.
