Just One Word, Benjamin (psst..and it's not plastics)

It's a brilliant scene from the classic film 'The Graduate.' Benjamin Braddock is being escorted by Mr. McGuire who takes him aside and in a word, provide some sound, older generation advice.

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.

'There's a great future in'....HOLD ON.

Actually, many people missed this in the original screening. You have to listen carefully, but there is an important subtlety here. One a little more suited for the times. Check it out.
