Louis C.K.: Arlen Hird
Arlen Hird : Look, I know what I am. Okay? I want this whole country to be different, top to bottom. If I get what I want, nobody gets their own lake.
Dalton Trumbo : Well, that would be a very dull life, don't you think?
Arlen Hird : Yeah, for you. Not for the guys who built this. If I'm wrong, tell me, but ever since I've known you, you talk like a radical. But you live like a rich guy.
Dalton Trumbo : That is true.
Arlen Hird : Well, I don't know that you're... I don't think you're willing to lose all of this just to do the right thing.
Dalton Trumbo : [scoffs] Well, I despise martyrdom and I won't fight for a lost cause. So you're right. I'm not willing to lose it all. Certainly not them. But I am willing to risk it all. That's where the radical and the rich guy make a perfect combination. The radical may fight with the purity of Jesus. But the rich guy wins with the cunning of Satan.
