Jamie: What do you want me to become? John: A lawyer. Jamie: You always say that you don't respect lawyers. John: Well, become one that I can. Jamie: Why a lawyer? John: Lawyers are the swords of this century. Words are weapons now. I need you to learn how to use 'em.
John: Jamie, you ever think about what you want to be when you get older? Jamie: You. John: I mean as a job. Jamie: I always figured one day I'd do your job. John: Take a look at that. Jamie: Harvard? John: Congratulations, son. Jamie: I didn't apply to Harvard. John: I applied for you. It's a great honor, and you earned it. Busted your ass in school, and this is your reward. Jamie: Where's Harvard? Connecticut? John: Boston. Jamie: That's really far. John: You want to be me someday? Then become something that can help me protect this place.
