The Nice Guys ★★★★★

"I got a friend, right? Secret Service. Worked the Nixon detail. You know, this is after they threw him out of office. Anyway, Nixon's driving around one day, around San Clemente, just him and a few agents."

"Yeah."

"And they come across this car accident, right? This guy pinned under a car. Anyway, Nixon gets out, runs over to check on the guy. You know, leans down. Nixon says to him, 'You're gonna be okay, son. You're gonna be all right' and right then, the guy dies."

"I don't get it."

"Think about it from that guy's point of view. Okay? The guy who died. He's lying there on the ground, staring up at the sky, near death, and then former president Richard Nixon appears before him and tells him he's gonna be fine. Now. did he think that's normal? Right? That, before they die, everybody sees Nixon?"

"You're expecting an angel and you get Nixon."

"Exactly, right."

"Okay."

"The same situation, just a vastly different point of view."

"So, there's two ways to look at something?"

"Yeah."

"That's the point of the story?"

"Yeah."

"Just say that."

"What?"

"Well, you just lead me on this epic fucking journey with this story, and ten minutes later the point is that there's two ways to look at something, just...you can just say that."

"You didn't like that story?"

"That would be awful."

"Wouldn't it, right?

"Yeah."
