"We Each Pursue Our Own Economic Interests...."



Baird Whitlock (George Clooney): "Sure, good. Good stuff.  So, do I get a share in the ransom?"

Head Communist Writer (Max Baker): "No, Mr. Whitlock. You can hardly share in your own ransom. That would be unethical." 

Baird Whitlock (George Clooney): "Well, that doesn't seem fair, fellas. I mean the whole set up only works, if I play along. Right? If I don't let on that I know who kidnapped me."

Head Communist Writer (Max Baker): "Yes; that's right."

Baird Whitlock (George Clooney): "What if I name names? If I, just I, tell the truth."

Hail, Caesar! (2016) Written & Directed by Joel and Ethan Cohen
