Dewey: "What, you want to learn something?"
Summer: "Yes, I do."
Dewey: "What, you want me to teach you something? You want to learn something? All right, heres a useful lesson for you. Give up. Just quit. Because in this life, you can't win. Yeah, you can try, but in the end, you're just gonna lose, bigtime, because the world is run by The Man."
Dewey: "The Man. Oh, you don't know The Man? Oh, well, he's everywhere. In the White House, down the hall. Miss Mullins, she's The Man. And The Man ruined the ozone, and he's burning down the Amavzon, and he kidnapped Shamu and put her in a chlorine tank. Okay? And thereused to be a way to stick it to The Man. It was called rock 'n' roll. But guess what. Oh, no. The Man ruined that too with a little thing called MTV! So don't waste your time trying to make anything cool or pure or awesome. Cause The Man's just gonna call you a fat, washed-up loser and crush your soul. So do yourselves a fowor and just give up!"
