Written By Matt Damon & Ben Affleck


Look, you’re my best friend, so don’t take this the wrong way, but in twenty years, if you’re livin’ next door to me, comin’ over, watchin’ the fucking Patriot’s game and still working construction, I’ll fucking kill you. And that’s not a threat; that’s a fact. I’ll fucking kill you….Listen you got somethin’ that none of us have. Fuck you. You owe it to me. Tomorrow I’ll be fifty and I’ll still be doin’ this. And that’s all right ’cause I’m gonna make a run at it. (A beat) But you, you’re sitting on a winning lottery ticket and you’re too much of a pussy to cash it in. And that’s bullshit ’cause I’d do anything to have what you got! And so would these guys. It’d be a fucking insult to us if you’re still here in twenty years….Let me tell you what I know. Every day I come by to pick you up, and we go out drinkin’ or whatever and we have a few laughs. But you know what the best part of my day is? The ten seconds before I knock on the door, ’cause I let myself think I might get there, and you’d be gone. I’d knock on the door and you wouldn’t be there. You just left. (A beat) Now, I don’t know much. But I do know that.
