Added DiffLines:

* RealitySubtext: Robert Towne was originally supposed to direct the sequel to ''Film/{{Chinatown}}'', ''The Two Jakes'', as well as write it, but he had a falling out with Creator/JackNicholson, who ended up directing it (though they have since reconciled), so the screenplay has a lot of his feelings about friendship at the time; in addition to the speech [[spoiler: Carlos]] gives to Mac at the end (see WhatTheHellHero on the main page), there's also this speech by Mac's cousin halfway through the film:
-->'''Greg:''' I don't know what it is about going to high school with someone that makes you feel you're automatically friends for life. Who says? Who says friendship lasts forever? We'd all like it to, maybe. But maybe...it just wears out like everything else - like tires. There's just so much mileage in them, and then you're riding around on nothing but air.
** Also, Towne wanted to be a writer-director rather than just a writer for hire, and the speech Mac gives to Joanne at the top of the main film page comes from that.
