INT. LESTER BANGS' BEDROOM -- NIGHT

	Crazy jazz is playing.  Lester Bangs on the phone.

					LESTER BANGS
			Aw, man.  You made friends with them!
			See, friendship is the booze they feed
			you.  They want you to get drunk on
			feeling like you belong.

								 INTERCUT:

	INT. ROLLING STONE -- NIGHT

	William in the empty Rolling Stone office.

					WILLIAM
				(ruefully)
			Well, it was fun.

					LESTER BANGS
			They make you feel cool.  And hey.  I
			met you.  You are not "cool."

					WILLIAM
			I know.  Even when I thought I was, I
			knew I wasn't.

					LESTER BANGS
			That's because we are uncool!  And
			while women will always be a problem for
			guys like us, most of the great art in
			the world is about that very problem.
			Good-looking people have no spine!
			Their art never lasts!  They  get the
			girls, but we're smarter.

					WILLIAM
			I can really see that now.

					LESTER BANGS
			Yeah, great art is about conflict and
			pain and guilt and longing and love
			disguised as sex, and sex disguised as
			love... and let's face it, they got a
			big head start.

					WILLIAM
			I'm glad you were home.

					LESTER BANGS
			I'm always home!  I'm uncool!

					WILLIAM
			Me too!

					LESTER BANGS
				(leveling)
			The only true currency in this bankrupt
			world is what we share with someone
			else when we're uncool.

  1. Great movie.

    But I wish I could be ‘cool’ at least for a little while.

    Coolness is something that we invent for ourselves.

    One persons cool is another persons stupidity.

    That was like 3 nonsensical lines.

    See! So uncool.
