You need to remember there's what people wanna hear, wanna believe ...

... there's everything else,
then there's the truth.
00:59:45,039 --> 00:59:48,375
And since when is that okay?
I can't believe you're saying this to me.
00:59:48,543 --> 00:59:50,669
The truth means responsibility, Arnie.
00:59:50,837 --> 00:59:53,839
