"Mr. Maguire."
"Ben."
"Mr Maguire."
"Come with me for a minute. I want to talk to you...I just want to say one word to you. Just one word."
"Yes sir."
"Are you listening?"
"Yes I am."
"Plastics."
"Exactly how do you mean?"
"There's a great future in plastics. Think about it. Will you think about it?"
"Yes I will."
"Shh. Enough said. That's a deal."

"THE GRADUATE" (1967)
