Finding Forrester

Why do l know it wasn't good
enough for either of you?

Shower up and get out of here.
You may think we're the same.
We're not.

Oh, Mr. Wallace.
Mr. Wallace!
-Professor Crawford.
-The latest paper you turned in....

lt showed quite a bit of improvement
from your earlier work.

-Thank you.

-How long did it take you to write it?
-l wrote it last night.

Last night!
Well, l have some things
to finish up here.

Good day, Mr. Wallace.
That's right. Select again.
-''Birds ofa Feather'' for 600.

Vibrant in color, its name borrows
from this Vivien Leigh character.

-The scarlet tanager.
-lt's, ''What is the scarlet tanager?''

What is the scarlet tanager?.
Gotta know the rules to play.
lt was written by a writer
you have never heard of.

''Thy duty, winged flame of spring
ls but to love and fly and sing.''
He was writing about the song
of the tanager.

A song about new seasons, new life.
That's James Lowell, man.
l know who he is.
''l'll stay with 'Poor Assumptions'
for 800, Alex.''

You ever see any
scarlet tanagers around here?

They don't stray that far
from the park.

So your professor wasn't exactly
full of praise this afternoon.

No, not exactly.
Well, there's something you should
know about Robert Crawford.

He wrote a book
a few years after mine.
