-> ''Officer Barbrady: ...'''[[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Bert]]:''' Uh... have you read her? Rand. ''Atlas Shrugged''. That's the one.\\
'''[[TheStoic Don]]:''' [[SureLetsGoWithThat Yes. Yes, it is]].\\
'''Bert:''' See, I know you haven't read it. When you hit 40, you realize you've met or seen every kind of person there is, and I know what kind you are. Because I believe [[NotSoDifferent we are alike]].\\
'''Don:''' [[IllTakeThatAsACompliment I assume that's flattering]].\\
'''Bert:''' By that I mean you are a productive and reasonable man, and in the end completely self-interested. It's strength. We are different--unsentimental about all the people who depend on our hard work.
