BURR: You punched the bursar HAMILTON: Yes, I wanted to do what you did Graduate in two and join the revolution He looked at me like I was stupid I'm not stupid So how'd you do it How'd you graduate so fast? BURR: It was my parents dying wish before they pa**ed HAMILTON: You're an orphan, of course, I'm an orphan God, I wish there was a war then we could prove that we're worth more than anyone bargained for BURR: Can I buy you a drink? HAMILTON: That would be nice BURR: And while we're talking let me offer you some free advice Talk less HAMILTON: What? BURR: Smile more HAMILTON: Ha...
