"We'll See....."

Gust (Phillip Seymour Hoffman): "Listen, not for nothing but do you know the story of the Zen master and the little boy?"

Charlie (Tom Hanks): "Is this something about the Greek witch of Aquilippa? 

Gust (Phillip Seymour Hoffman):  "Yeah, as a matter of a fact, it is.  There is a little boy on his 14th birthday, he gets a horse.  Everyone in the village exclaim, 'how wonderful.' His zen master says, "we'll see.  Two years later, the boy falls off his horse and breaks his leg. Everyone in the village says, 'How terrible." The zen master says, "we'll see.' Then a war breaks out and all of the young men have to go off and fight. Except the boy because his leg is all messed up and everyone in the village says, 'how wonderful.'"

Charlie (Tom Hanks): "Now the zen master says, 'we'll see.'"

Gust (Phillip Seymour Hoffman):  "So, you get it?' 

Charlie (Tom Hanks): "No, no because I'm stupid." (laughing)

Gust (Phillip Seymour Hoffman):  "You're not stupid. You're just in congress......"
