William:

Lester Bangs:
Because they make you feel cool, and hey, I met you. You are not cool.

William:
I know. Even when I thought I was, I knew I wasn't.

Lester Bangs:
That's because we're uncool. And while women will always be a problem for us, most of the great art in the world is about that very same problem. Good-looking people don't have any spine. Their art never lasts. They get the girls, but we're smarter.

William:
I can really see that now.

Lester Bangs:

William:

Lester Bangs:

William:
Me too!

Lester Bangs:

William:

Lester Bangs:
