The Adventures of Tintin

Tintins äventyr (2011)

Captain Haddock:
I thought you were an optimist.
Tintin:
You were wrong, weren’t you? I’m a realist.
Captain Haddock:

Tintin:
You can call me what you like. Don’t you get it? We failed.
Captain Haddock:
Failed. There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse. Don’t you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don’t you understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. There’s something you need to know about failure, Tintin. You can never let it defeat you.

As the guests come in I show them where to put their coats and point them to the bar. We chat, we laugh. I move the muscles of the mask that covers my pain, it becomes a face again. The feeling of warmth and love melts a small part of my pain. I am a tiny particle in the bigger body of humanity. Acknowledging it and extending my hand to other people saves me from slashing my wrists with a kitchen knife.

Doing what?
Will the Krill:
This.
[starts to dance and laugh frantically]

Bill the Krill:
Fascinating. What is it?
Will the Krill:
I have no idea.
Bill the Krill:
[starts to dance as well]
Wow! What’s it for?
Will the Krill:
Perhaps it’s a momentary relief from the existential terrors of existence.
Bill the Krill:
Oh.
[mumbles]

Bill the Krill:
What?
Will the Krill:
It brings out my happy!
