From The Change-Up, which I actually really enjoyed tonight:
Before making any decision in your life, no matter how small, call your wife first. Think of yourself as a brain-damaged mule, lost in the desert: helpless, dumb, and in constant need of direction. Never take the initiative, NEVER strike out on your own, and never deviate from the plan. Why? ‘Cause you’re a brain-damaged mule and you are lost in the damn desert!
Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds. Atlanta. RHCP’s “Higher Ground.” Ryan Reynolds (again). Really all that needs to be said.
