Mulholland Drive

Cowboy: A man’s attitude (beat) A man’s attitude goes some ways, the way his life will be. Is that something you might agree with?
Adam: Sure.
Cowboy: Now, did you answer because that’s what you thought I wanted to hear, or did you think about what I said and answer ’cause you truly believe that to be right?
Adam: I agree with what you said, truly.
Cowboy: What’d I say?
Adam: That a man’s attitude determines to a large extent how his life will be.
Cowboy: So since you agree, you must be a person who does not care about the good life.
Adam: How’s that?
Cowboy: Well, stop for a little second and think about it. Can you do that for me?
Adam: (laughs) Okay, I’m thinking.
Cowboy: No, you’re not thinking. You’re too busy being a smart aleck to be thinking. Now, I want you to think and stop being a smart aleck. Can you try that for me?

They say Mulholland Drive is the best film of the 21st century. I am inclined to agree. I am definitely going through another David Lynch phase since the new season of Twin Peaks started.

Reading on the Bus

A GUY sits on the bus reading a book. An IDIOT boards and walks toward the back of the bus. As he sits in the seat across the aisle from the guy, the idiot stares at the guy reading. The guy knows the idiot is going to say something.

IDIOT: Hey there, readin’ huh?

GUY: Yep.

IDIOT: Well, whatcha readin’?

GUY: Nothing. I’m answering your questions.
