"Hey Timmy; Who's Ted Kaczynski?"




Sean (Robin Williams): "Hey Gerry, in the 1960s, there was a young man who graduated from the University of Michigan.  He did some brilliant work in mathematics, specifically bounded harmonic functions. Then he went on to Berkley. He was assistant professor, showed amazing potential.  Then, he moved to Montana and blew the competition away." 

Gerry (Stellan Skarsgard): "Yeah; so who was he?"

Sean (Robin Williams): "Ted Kaczynski"

Gerry (Stellan Skarsgard): "Never heard of him."

Sean (Robin Williams):"Hey Timmy, (shouts to bartender) Who's Ted Kaczynski?"

Timmy the bartender (Richard Fitzpatrick): "The Unabomber!"

Gerry (Stellan Skarsgard): "That's exactly what I'm talking about. We gotta to give this kid direction. He can contribute to the world and we can help him do that. "

Sean (Robin Williams): "Direction is one thing, manipulation is another, alright. You have to let him find himself....Maybe, he doesn't want what you want."
