The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990)
Donald Moffat: Mr. McCoy
Sherman McCoy : There's one thing I can do. I want to see the truth come out, and burn every one of them, and there's only one way to do that.
Mr. McCoy : And what is that?
Sherman McCoy : Lie.
Mr. McCoy : Oh... you know I have always been a great believer in the truth. I have lived my life as honestly as I can. I, I believe in the truth as an essential companion to a man of conscience. A beacon in this vast and dark wasteland, that is our modern world. And yet...
Sherman McCoy : Yes.
Mr. McCoy : ...in this case, if the truth won't set you free, then lie.
