Stand By Me

It ocurred to me today how funny the scene in Stand By Me is where Gordie says “What’s asshole about wanting to be with your friends?”

And Chris rears back and says “It’s asshole if your friends drag you down.”

It amused me today to think of this scene, the way River Phoenix delivers this misuse of swearing with such confidence, with such passion. I always took the scene so seriously.

He’s right though. It is asshole if your friends drag you down.
