Monty is a student, and when his computer crashes, he's left with only a single paper copy of his thesis. Frightened of losing it, he immediately rushes out to photocopy it, only to stumble and drop it down a grate. Searching the basement of the building, he discovers that it has been found by Simon, a squatter. Simon makes a deal with Monty: for every day's accomodation and food that Monty gives him, he will give a page of the thesis in return. Written by

Did You Know?
After Simon is evicted from the library basement, Monty says he needs a home. Simon replies that he had a home, "with 17 bathrooms and 8 miles of books". Since he is penniless, presumably he is referring to the library he left. But Harvard's Widener Library has nearly 60 miles of books, not 8. See more
Women. Ain't they perfect?
Yes, they are, they're perfect. Don't matter if they're skinny, fat, blond or blue. If a woman is willing to give you her love, Harvard, it's the greatest gift in the world. Makes you taller, makes you smarter, makes your teeth shine. Boy, oh, boy, women are perfect.
