President "Bobby":
Mr. Gardner, do you agree with Ben, or do you think that we can stimulate growth through temporary incentives?
[Long pause]

Chance the Gardener:
As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.
President "Bobby":
In the garden.
Chance the Gardener:
Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.
President "Bobby":
Spring and summer.
Chance the Gardener:
Yes.
President "Bobby":
Then fall and winter.
Chance the Gardener:
Yes.
Benjamin Rand:
I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we're upset by the seasons of our economy.
Chance the Gardener:
Yes! There will be growth in the spring!
Benjamin Rand:
Hmm!
Chance the Gardener:
Hmm!
President "Bobby":
Hm. Well, Mr. Gardner, I must admit that is one of the most refreshing and optimistic statements I've heard in a very, very long time.
[Benjamin Rand applauds]

President "Bobby":
I admire your good, solid sense. That's precisely what we lack on Capitol Hill.
