Rick: David, before we go on, I gotta ask you - do you really believe in this journalist-as-star nonsense? David Halberstam: God, no! It's the worst thing that can happen to both journalism and the public! Rick: But your books are a monument to just that adulation! Halberstam: Maybe. Debatable.

Rick: Exactly. Take Woodward and Bernstein... Halberstam: Gods. I kiss their Guccis.
