Nate: Tell me, Teddy, do your parents make you set academic goals? Teddy: No... Teddy: They say that as long as I'm doing my best, that's what matters. Nate: AH-HA! Nate: Hear THAT, Dad? TEDDY'S parents are happy as long as he TRIES! Dad: But you don't try. Nate: Ohhh, Yeah. Dad: That's sort of the whole point.
