Lions for Lambs (2007)
Andrew Garfield: Todd Hayes
Professor Stephen Malley : The decisions you make now, bud, can't be changed but with years and years of hard work to redo it... And in those years you become something different. Everybody does as the time passes. You get married, you get into debt... But you're never gonna be the same person you are right now. And promise and potential... It's very fickle, and it just might not be there anymore.
Todd Hayes : Are you assuming I already made a decision? And also that I'll live to regret it?
Professor Stephen Malley : All I'm saying is that you're an adult now... And the tough thing about adulthood is that it starts before you even know it starts, when you're already a dozen decisions into it. But what you need to know, Todd, no Lifeguard is watching anymore. You're on your own. You're your own man, and the decisions you make now are yours and yours alone from here until the end.
Todd Hayes : Look, if we're gonna spend tax dollars, our tax dollars, to help people break the law in a safer way, why don't we have a designated drunk-driver lane on the highway too?
Todd Hayes : Who never says anything even though he never stops talking.
