Wisdom becomes nonsense in the mouth of a fanatic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The violent illiteracies of the graffiti, the clenched silence of the adolescent, the nonsense cries from the stage-happening, are resolutely strategic. The insurgent and the freak-out have broken off discourse with a cultural system which they despise as a cruel, antiquated fraud. They will not bandy words with it. Accept, even momentarily, the conventions of literate linguistic exchange, and you are caught in the net of the old values, of the grammars that can condescend or enslave.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Wanda: Would you just get me the fuck out of here?
Wanda's mother: What's "fuck" mean, Hector?
Wanda's Father: Oh, Maggie, it's just a teen nonsense word Wanda uses to make herself feel all grown-up.

Hunter: Rivetti, what's up?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I'm sorry, Sir. It's just a difference of opinion that got out of hand.
Hunter: What about?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: It's really too silly to talk about, Sir. I'd really just forget about...
Hunter: I don't give a damn about what you'd rather forget about. Why were you two fighting?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I said, the Kirby Silver Surfer was the only real Silver Surfer. And that the Moebius Silver Surfer was shit. And Bennefield's a big Moebius fan. And it got of hand. I pushed him. He pushed me. I lost my head, Sir. I'm Sorry.
Hunter: Rivetti, you're a supervisor. You can get a commission like that.
[Snaps finger]
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I know, Sir. You're 100 percent right. It will never happen again.
Hunter: It better not happen again. If I see this kind of nonsense again, I'm going to write you up. You understand?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: [No answer]
Hunter: Do you understand?
Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.
Hunter: You have to set an example even in the face of stupidity. Everybody who reads comic books knows that the Kirby Silver Surfer is the only true Silver Surfer. Now am I right or wrong?

Beth Morgan:
I have come up here to tell you what I think of you all, because you are talking against my husband. You are a lot of cowards to go against him. He has done nothing against you and he never has and you know it well. How some of you, you smug-faced hypocrites, can sit in the same chapel with him I cannot tell. To say he is with the owners is not only nonsense but downright wickedness. There's one thing more I've got to say and it is this. If harm comes to my Gwilym, I will find out the men and I will kill them with my two hands. And this I will swear by God Almighty.

Amiot:
[Upon hearing about a thief in the opera house] Call the police at once! This must be stopped!



Vereheres:
Monsieur, I'm afraid the police can't stop that. It's he.



Amiot:
Who?


[VEREHERES begins to make gestures at his nose and chin]



Amiot:
Oh, please. Don't start that nonsense again, Vercheres. At your age, you ought to know that there aren't any ghosts.



Vereheres:
Monsieur, you are skeptical, but I don't like ghosts. I'm a busy man.



Lecours:
What's that?



Amiot:
Oh, our brilliant stage manager insists there's a malicious ghost prowling about the Opera. If anything goes wrong, he thinks this ghost did it!



Vereheres:
Oh, monsieur...


[to LECOURS, again making gestures to his nose and chin]



Vereheres:
He has a long nose, and a big red beard!



Lecours:
You make me nervous!

[Col. Thursday is meeting with Cochise - Beaufort translates from Cochise's spanish into english]



Sgt. Johnny Beaufort:
He says, "The Apaches are a great race," sir. "They've never been conquered. But it is not well for a nation to be always at war. The young men die... the women sing sad songs... and the old ones are hungry in the winter. And so I led my people from the hills. And then came this man.


[indicating Meacham]



Lt. Col. Thursday:
[Cochise speaks more - Beaufort pauses] What did he say?



Sgt. Johnny Beaufort:
Well, sir, a free translation would be that "Meacham's a yellow-bellied polecat of dubious antecedents and conjectural progeny." Cochise's words, of course, sir - not mine.



Lt. Col. Thursday:
[looks at Meacham] That's a matter of opinion.



Sgt. Johnny Beaufort:
[Cochise continues - Beaufort translates] "He is worse than war. He not only killed the men, but the women and the children and the old ones. We looked to the Great White Father for protection. He gave us slow death. We will not return to your reservation while that man


[indicating Meacham]



Sgt. Johnny Beaufort:
is there or anyone like him. Send him away and we will speak of peace. If you do not send him away, there will be war. And for each one of us that you kill, ten white men will die!



Lt. Col. Thursday:
Are you threatening us?



Captain Yorke:
Don't interrupt, sir, it's an insult.



Lt. Col. Thursday:
I'll not sit here and be threatened. Beaufort... no preliminary nonsense with him... no ceremonial phrasing. Straight from the shoulder as I tell you, do you hear me? They're recalcitrant swine and they must feel it.



Sgt. Johnny Beaufort:
He's only speaking the truth, sir.



Lt. Col. Thursday:
Is there anyone in this regiment that understands an order when it's given?



Sgt. Johnny Beaufort:
What does the Colonel wish me to say, sir?



Lt. Col. Thursday:
Tell them I find them without honor.


[Beaufort translates the words to Cochise]



Lt. Col. Thursday:
Tell them they're not talking to me, but to the United States government. Tell them that government orders them to return to their reservation. And tell them that if they have not started by dawn, we will attack. Tell 'em that!


[Col. Thursday turns and walks away - Cochise and his group walk away]

Jack Burns:
Yeah, but basically, you're still an Easterner.



Jerry Bondi:
What are you talking about, Jack?



Jack Burns:
Oh, it's easy to understand. A westerner likes open country. That means he's got to hate fences. And the more fences there are, the more he hates them.



Jerry Bondi:
I've never heard such nonsense in my life.



Jack Burns:
It's true though. Have you ever noticed how many fences there're getting to be? And the signs they got on them: no hunting, no hiking, no admission, no trespassing, private property, closed area, start moving, go away, get lost, drop dead! Do you know what I mean?

And he does both.



Guildenstern:

Brooks:
[narrating] Dear fellas, I can't believe how fast things move on the outside. I saw an automobile once when I was a kid but now they're everywhere. The world went and got itself in a big damn hurry. The parole board got me into this halfway house called "The Brewer". And a job bagging groceries at the Foodway. It's hard work and I try to keep up but my hands hurt most of the time. I don't think the store manager likes me very much. Sometimes after work I go to the park and feed the birds. I keep thinking Jake might just show up and say hello. But he never does. I hope wherever he is he's okay and makin' new friends. I have trouble sleepin' at night. I have bad dreams like I'm falling. I wake up scared. Sometimes it takes me a while to remember where I am. Maybe I should get me a gun, an, an rob the Foodway so they'd send me home. I could shoot the manager while I was at it, sort of like a bonus. I guess I'm too old for that sort of nonsense anymore. I don't like it here. I'm tired of being afraid all the time. I've decided not to stay. I doubt they'll kick up any fuss. Not for an old crook like me.

Bridget:
Wish I could be home with my head in a toilet like all normal people...

Bridget:

Yes. Well. Perhaps it's time to eat.

Fran Moore:
It's a long road. Let's get to the meet.



Jimmy:
Yeah, that's difficult. You want me to tell you why? There is no meet.



Fran Moore:
Joe wouldn't like that.



Jimmy:
We left Joe at the airport. There is no meet, you know that. Your guy went out, got his picture on a postage stamp. He got old. Let's cut the shucking and the jiving. What kind of man sends you to me, sends his wife to me? To distract me? Oh, surprise, I was all taken in. How about that? What a fool I am. Would I do that to you? Would I do that to you? And p.s., who liked it? For old time's sake, why don't we cut the nonsense and say what it is.



Fran Moore:
I need a drink.

Narrator:
From great poets like Goethe and Pushkin down to the most brainless schoolgirl, his works were read with an almost hysterical enthusiasm which, as we struggle with the rhetorical nonsense of Lara or The Giaour, we can hardly credit, because, although Byron wrote quite a lot of good poetry, it was his bad poetry that make him famous.

Life is very short, and very fragile. It's easy to let it go by and suddenly find that all the things you meant to do just never got done. When you're young, you think you've got forever. But you're dead for a very long time. That's all.
