Can I ask you a couple of questions?
She's cute. She's all right?
Hi. Hi.
Yeah. Okay, go. It's okay?
You've been called the da vinci of our time.
What do you say to that? Absolutely ridiculous. I don't paint.
And what do you say to your other nickname?
"the merchant of death"?
That's not bad.
Let me guess. Berkeley?
Brown, actually.
Well, ms. Brown,
It's an imperfect world, but it's the only one we've got.
I guarantee you, the day weapons are no longer needed to keep the peace,
I'll start making bricks and beams for baby hospitals.
Rehearse that much?
Every night in front of the mirror before bedtime.
I can see that.
I'd like to show you first-hand.
All I want is a serious answer.
Okay, here's serious. My old man had a philosophy,
"peace means having a bigger stick than the other guy."
That's a great line coming from the guy selling the sticks.
My father helped defeat the nazis.
He worked on the manhattan project.
A lot of people, including your professors at brown,
Would call that being a hero.
And a lot of people would also call that war profiteering.
Tell me, do you plan to report on the millions we've saved
By advancing medical technology
Or kept from starvation with our intelli-crops?
All those breakthroughs, military funding, honey.
You ever lose an hour of sleep your whole life?
I'd be prepared to lose a few with you.
