Something to believe in

Say you're channel surfing, losing your faith in the economy, science, the media, powers earthly and divine as you dive deep, deeper, into dismay. Just as you're about to give up on not only the night's programming but all of mankind, what do you see? Robert Duvall lecturing Haley Joel Osment:

"Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love...true love never dies. You remember that boy. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in."

Sleep tight, sweetie darlings. See you tomorrow.
