Good Will Hunting—”Idiosyncrasies.”

(click here for more)

The quirky imperfect idiosyncratic things are the good stuff. Love isn’t a perfect, hypothetical fairytale…it’s found in farts so loud the dog wakes up.

The bit about farting was improvised, and the laughter so hard and genuine that you can see the camera, held by the camera man, shaking with laughter.

Very interesting. Reminds me of…
“It’s not your fault.”
“thanks, yeah whatever.”
“It’s not your fault.”
“Cool. Thanks.”
“It’s not your fault.”
“I got it. Ok?”
“It’s not your fault.”
“Cut it out, man!”
“It’s not your fault.”
Oh fuck. Sobbing ensues. Beautiful scene.

    Thanks for that! Didn’t register when I saw the movie the first time. Going to to be thinking about idiosyncrasies today and the unquenchable need to be perfect and maybe even loving my weirdness and cracked bits a bit better. Oh, and I’m gonna watch “Good Will Hunter” again. Think it might be even better the 2nd time around. Have a lively day 🙂

    Thank you for posting that. I've never mourned the death of a celebrity. But I'm mourning Robin Williams.
