Finding Forrester

Anyone in particular?
l sometimes come here in the morning.
Just me, the aspiring...
...and all of them.
l got a note saying
l should come and see you.

Mr. Wallace...
...l think it's time you and l
had a very honest...

...and very open discussion
about your writing.

l thought you liked it.
Your recent work?
l liked it very much.
No, Mr. Wallace, the question
concerning your most recent work...

...isn't whether it's good.
lt's whether it's too good.
The speed in your progress...
...from your old school
to this one is unusual.

To the point that l must draw
one of two conclusions.

Either you've been blessed with a rare
gift that has suddenly kicked in...

:22:10're getting your inspiration
from elsewhere.

Given your previous education
and your background...

...l'm sure you'll forgive me
for reaching my own conclusions.

l wrote those papers, man.
Then you won't mind showing me.
The next assignment
is due in two weeks.

l'll schedule some time
for you to come to my office.

l'd like you to write it there.
ln the meantime, if there's anything
you wish to talk about....

l'm not writing anything, man.
Which proves what?
lf a two-comma kid wrote the papers,
would he use this ''background'' shit?

-Two-comma kid?
-A million dollars.

-One comma, two commas.

No, l don't.
Do you know what people
are most afraid of?
