Finding Forrester

lt was Stamford.
Excuse me?
At the bar in London.
He's the one who
introduced Watson to Holmes.

Might save you some time
after everybody's done in there.

You know how long l worked on that?
''One season of faith's perfection''?
Feels like l worked on it
for two or three seasons.

Oh, you're in that place where
you can't even hear me.

Like l could ask why you
never moved from here...

-...and you wouldn't even get pissed--
-Paragraph three starts...

...with a conjunction, ''and.''
Never start a sentence
with a conjunction.

-Sure you can.
-Oh, no.

lt's a firm rule.
No, no, no, see...
:00:51 was a firm rule.
lf you use a conjunction
at the start of a sentence...

:00:55 can make it stand out a bit.
And that may be what the writer wants.
And what is the risk?
Well, the risk is doing it too much.
lt's a distraction. lt could
give the piece a run-on feeling.

But for the most part,
the rule on ''and'' or ''but''...

:01:10 the start is still pretty shaky.
Even though it's taught
in many schools by many teachers.

Some of the best writers
have ignored that rule for years...

...including you.
Well, you've taken...
...something which was mine...
...and made it yours.
That's quite an accomplishment.
Thank you.
The title is still mine, isn't it?
l guess.
Now, it was the neighborhood
that changed. Not me.

l ain't seen nothing change.
You ''ain't seen nothing''?
What in the hell kind
of sentence is that? Huh?

When you're in here,
don't talk like you do out there.

l was messing with you, man.
lt was a joke.
