Charlie: The term «bourgeois« has almost always been – been one of contempt. Yet it is precisely the – the bourgeoisie which is responsible for – well, for nearly everything good that has happened in our civilization over the past four centuries… You know the French film «The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie?« When I first heard that title I thought…«Finally, someone’s gonna tell the truth about the bourgeoisie.« What a disappointment. It would be hard to imagine a less fair or accurate portrait.
Sally: Well, of course. Bunuel’s a surrealist. Despising the bourgeoisie is part of their credo.
Nick: Where do they get off?
Charlie: But the truth is, the bourgeoisie does have a lot of charm.
Nick: Of course it does. The surrealists were just a lot of social climbers.
Fred: Is there any more wine?
