I Heart Huckabees

- What's happening with your case?
- I don't know.

- What do you mean?
- They won't let me see my coincidence file.

You want them to solve a coincidence?
That's why you came here?

- Yeah, that's why I came here.
- Who's the girl?

The face of Huckabees.
- Tops and mops?
- That's her.

- I doubt your coincidence is meaningful.
- Why?

I have a book by a French thinker
named Caterine Vauban.

She says the same thing they say here about
dismantling your reality to see the big picture.

- What's the difference?
- Here, they say everything's
connected in the blanket.

Vauban says nothing's connected. It's all
random and cruel. It doesn't matter what you do.

That's nihilism, Tommy!
They find it threatening.
But it is very convincing.

You know, my ex-girl
won't let me see my daughter.

She's brainwashing her
not to think or feel.

- What kind of reality is that?
- Not this one.

Exactly. I think you shouldjust look
in your file if you want to.

- How am I gonna look at my file?
- You wanna see your file?

I'll distract them.
You slip in for it.

Act naturally.
Here comes your boy.

Hey, you play mancala?
Didn't know you were interested in
existential issues, Brad.

Why? 'Cause I'm a dumb sales executive
instead of a sensitive artist like you?

No, I just never heard you
talk about it. That's all.

Why do you think
I joined the Open Spaces Coalition, man?

- I thought you cared about the issues.
- I do.

Obviously you had
a different agenda, didn't you?

- What books do you read?
- What books do I read?

Sacred Hoops.

Really. I read the galleys when it arrived
at Huckabees, and you know what?

Seriously, that book's
got some good questions. You should read it.

Isn't it sports questions
in that book? [ Laughs ]

No, wise ass. PhilJackson's a smart guy.
All right, come on.

It was
an honest question, Brad.

Felt a little hostile.
I feel the same thing from him.
