More bullshit for your thesis

Doc:
[noticing Babe's homework]
What's this, more bullshit for your thesis?
Babe:
Those are some interviews about Dad. I'd like you to read it.
Doc:
[dispassionately]
Not interested.
Babe:
Why not? I just want you to read it.
Doc:
You're never gonna face it, are you? The old man is dead; he was a drunk, he killed himself.
Babe:
Yeah, Doc, but he didn't start to drink until after the hearings.
Doc:
You gotta be kidding me?
Babe:
No, I got it from his friends. I got it right here.
Doc:
Where were those people when you needed them?
Babe:
They're were afraid like everybody else.
Doc:
You think he wanted you to be throwing your life away on this shit?
Babe:
I don't think I'm throwing it away!
Doc:
You are! Nothing you write is gonna change what happened?
Babe:
Why can't you give me the courtesy to read it?
Doc:
[shouting]
It's over! Forget it!
Babe:
[quietly]
Maybe for you.

What's this?
More bullshit for your thesis?
Some interviews about Dad. Read them.
Not interested.
I just want you to read it.
Face it. The old man is dead.
He was a drunk. He killed himself.
He didn't start to drink
till after the hearings.
I got it from his friends.
- Where were those people then?
- They were afraid.
- You're throwing your life away.
- I don't think so.
Nothing you write will change that!
- Give me the courtesy to read it!
- It's over! Forget it!
Maybe for you.
Do you want me to become
a corporate hustler like you?
- My life's thrown away, anyway.
- What do you mean?
I'm supposed to be the
best in my business.
I'm the best because
people think I am the best.
I'm past it. I know it. Soon it'll
become common knowledge.
Boy, something has gotten you.
Babe...
I bet you still have
that goddamn gun.
Why do you keep it?
I don't know.
For a liberal pacifist, you've got
some sense of vengeance.
Is Helga as morbid as you?
I know you're trying to bait me.
You know her name isn't Helga.
Or Ursula or Irmgard.
- You know what her name is!
- All right, all right.
Can I take you and
Elsa to lunch tomorrow?
- But don't eat with your fingers.
- I promise.
It's a deal.
- Okay, I get the bed.
- Same as always.
