But I'm just t i red now and I have to go home and , he hides his modesty inside his mind I wasn't going to keep sitt ing there waiting for you. -assault, and theft auto, drunkenness, nudity, assault LA MBEAU Now, i t won't be as bad as i t sounds, W ill. (beat) I 've already spoken to one therapist, h is name is Henry L ipkin and he's a f riend of mine. He's also published four books and is widely considered t o be one of the brightest men in h is field. (beat) I 'm sure i t'll be better than spending t he next six months in jail. PSYCHOLOG IST You have a quality -- something you were born with, that you have no control over -- and you are, in a sense, hiding that by becoming a j anitor. And I'm not saying that's w rong. I'm friends with the janitor t hat works in my building. -øæ £¸ ª . -compare Will to Ramanujan- no formal education, no access to other works; extrapolate theories. -Hardy, Cambridge- recognized his brilliance -Unparalled intelligence WILL M aybe you were in the middle of a s torm, a big fuckin' storm -- the waves were crashing over the bow, t he Goddamned mast was about to snap, a nd you were crying for the harbor. So you did what you had to do, to get out. Maybe you became a psychologist. “mar r ied a wrong woman SEAN So if I asked you about art you could g ive me the skinny on every art book ever wri t ten... M ichelangelo? You k now a lot about him I bet. L ife's work, crit icisms, political aspirations. But you couldn't tell me what i t smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You've never stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling. A nd if I asked you about women I'm sure you could give me a syllabus of your personal favorites, and maybe you've been laid a few t imes too. B ut you couldn't tell me how it feels t o wake up next to a woman and be t ruly happy. If I asked you about war you could refer me to a bevy of f ictional and non-fictional material, b ut you've never been in one. You've never held your best friend's head i n your lap and watched him draw his l ast breath, looking to you for help. A nd if I asked you about love I'd get a sonnet, but you've never looked a t a woman and been t ruly vulnerable. K nown that someone could k ill you w ith a look. That someone could rescue you from grief. That God had put an a ngel on Ear th just for you. And you wouldn't know how i t felt to be her angel. To have the love be there for her forever. Through anything, t hrough cancer. You wouldn't know about sleeping sitting up in a hospital room for two months holding her hand and not leaving because the doctors could see in your eyes that t he term "visiting hours" didn't apply to you. And you wouldn't know about real loss, because that only occurs when you lose something you love more than yourself, and you've never dared to love anything that m uch. I look at you and I don't see a n intelligent confident man, I don't see a peer, and I don't see my equal. I see a boy. Nobody could possibly u nderstand you, r ight Will? Yet you p resume to know so much about me because of a painting you saw. You m ust know everything about me. You're a n orphan, r ight? You've never been on a plane. The question is, whether or not you're perfect for each other. You can know everything in the world, b ut the only way you're findin' that one out is by giving i t a shot. “got gift””contr ibute to the world””prodigy: L A MBEAU W ill, on your own t ime, you can do w hat you l ike. When I set up a meeting, with my associates, and you don't show up i t reflects poorly on me. SKY LAR F uck you! You think I want this? T hat money's a burden to me. Every day I wake up and I wish I could g ive that back. I'd give everything I have back to spend one more day w ith my father. But that's l ife. And I deal wi th i t. So don't put that shit on me. You're the one that's a fraid. Soul-mates =Shakespeare, Neitzche, Frost, O'Connor, Chaucer, Pope, Kant-WILL W hat do I want a way outta here for? I want to live here the rest of my l ife. I want to be your next door neighbor. I want to take out kids to l i t t le league together up Foley Field. C H UCK I E L ook, you're my best f riend, so don't t ake this the wrong way, but in 20 years, if you're livin' next door to me, comin' over watchin' the fuckin' Patriots' games and still workin' construction, I'll fuckin' k ill you. A nd that's not a th reat, that's a fact. I'll fuckin' kill you. WILL Chuckie, what are you talkin'... C H UCK I E L isten, you got somethin' that none of us have. WILL Why is i t always this? I owe i t to myself? What if I don't want to? C H UCK I E F uck you. You owe i t to me. Tomorrow I 'm gonna wake up and I'll be fifty a nd I'll still be doin' this. And t hat's all r ight 'cause I'm gonna make a run at i t. But you, you're s it tin' on a winning lottery t icket a nd you're too much of a pussy to cash i t in. And that's bullshit 'cause I 'd do anything to have what you got! And so would any of these guys. I t'd be a fuckin' insult to us if you're still here in twenty years. WILL You don't know that. C H UCK I E Let me tell you what I do know. Every day I come by to pick you up, and we go out drinkin' or whatever and we have a few laughs. But you know what t he best part of my day is? The ten seconds before I knock on the door 'cause I let myself think I might get there, and you'd be gone. I'd k nock on the door and you wouldn't be there. You just left. LA MBEAU He has a gift and with that gift comes responsibili ty. And you don't u nderstand that he's at a fragile point-SEAN I don't blame you! I t's not about t hat! I t's about the boy! 'Cause he's a good kid! And I won't see t his happen to him- won't see you make him feel like a failure too! WILL Well, I'm here. (beat) So, is that my problem? I'm afraid of being abandoned? -his dad used to collect the sticks to beat him up; put a belt, a stick, and a wrench on the kitchen table and say choose WILL ( in wri t ing) Sean -- If the Professor calls about t hat job, just tell him, "Sorry, I h ad to go see about a girl." Cop-out= 1. Environment playes a huge role 2. Emotions might be unreavealed but they are articulated in some ways’ they dominate our l ives 3. Most suitable type physchologial consultant of for each person 4. Importance of honesty; accepting who you are 5. -Plato’s Ratonalism & Nativism, Nur tu re- A ristotle’s Associationism & Empiricism -Empir icism= the idea that experience is the source of knowledge -Fuctionalism= address the purpose o behabior; function of mind; psychotherapy -the notion of the unconscious -innate or acquired through education and cutlture -suscpicous towards society È Ó æ ¨¸ ª º ° -• Å “+ ™ @ [ ).
