Good Will Hunting Bar Scene (Quote)

Chuckie: All right, are we gonna have a problem?
Clark: There's no problem. I was just hoping you could give me some insight into the evolution of the market economy in the early colonies. My contention is that prior to the Revolutionary War the economic modalities, especially of the southern colonies could most aptly be characterized as agrarian pre-capitalist and...
Will: [interrupting] Of course that's your contention. You're a first year grad student. You just got finished some Marxian historian, Pete Garrison prob’ly, you’re gonna be convinced of that until next month when you get to James Lemon, then you’re gonna be talkin’ about how the economies of Virginia and Pennsylvania were entrepreneurial and capitalist back in 1740. That's gonna last until next year, you’re gonna be in here regurgitating Gordon Wood, talkin’ about you know, the Pre-revolutionary utopia and the capital-forming effects of military mobilization.
Clark: [taken aback] Well, as a matter of fact, I won't, because Wood drastically underestimates the impact of--
Will: ..."Wood drastically underestimates the impact of social distinctions predicated upon wealth, especially inherited wealth..." You got that from Vickers. "Work in Essex County," Page 98, right? Yeah I read that too. Were you gonna plagiarize the whole thing for us- you have any thoughts of- of your own on this matter? Or do- is that your thing, you come into a bar, you read some obscure passage and then you pretend- you pawn it off as your own- your own idea just to impress some girls? Embarrass my friend?
Will: See the sad thing about a guy like you, is in about 50 years you’re gonna start doin' some thinkin' on your own and you’re gonna come up with the fact that there are two certainties in life. One, don't do that. And two, you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on a fuckin’ education you coulda' got for a dollar fifty in late charges at the Public Library.
Clark: Yeah, but I will have a degree, and you'll be serving my kids fries at a drive-thru on our way to a skiing trip.
Will: [smiles] Yeah, maybe. But at least I won't be unoriginal.


  1. Probably one of the best scenes in the film but the below is good:

    Will: (to Clarke who's sitting in a bar with friends. Will shouts through the glass window) "Do you like Apples"?

    Clarke: (startled) "yeah"

    Will: (banging a piece of paper onto the window) "WELL I GOT HER NUMBER, HOW D'YA LIKE THEM APPLES"???

  10. "My contention is that prior to the Revolutionary War the economic modalities, especially of the southern colonies could most aptly be characterized as agrarian pre-capitalist and... " Clark's observation (regurgitation) is so utterly pathetic in essence that it (aside from its walloping predictable haughty, snotty nature) ridicules itself - what the fuck else could it be at that time in our history ? There wasn't much else happening on Earth other than agrarian enterprise. And, as far as pre-capitalist and ... is concerned, I beg to differ. I'd say capitalism or its predecessor was already in full swing and always had been, albeit primarily of an agrarian nature. Certainly one of the best scenes I've ever had the pleasure of seeing on film, disgorging the perverted and twisted nature of unfortunate beings such as the "social distinctions (distortions) predicated upon wealth, especially inherited wealth..." - Clark clearly being one of those convinced of his "inherited superiority". What a sad and pathetic bunch - and they're all over the place. Pas pour moi, je vous remercie. Robin Norris -
