Fin pulls out a library card from a book that Olivia had checked out in her name. In the old library card/check system, the card would have been kept at the library to keep track of who had checked it out. It shouldn't have been placed back in the book, then released to check out. See more »
I heard the comments, I read the reviews, but actually seeing The Station Agent was even better than I had expected. I watched it in a library--and it was almost a full house for the showing tonight.

I think that working towards friendship is a tremendous possibility (and never one that you have to regret in the morning)!
