Good Will Hunting Scene 11

Scene 11

Scene 11

  • We're back in Maguire's office. Neither Maguire nor Will say a word for the entire hour. After it's over, Maguire explains to Lambeau that Will did this just to prove that he doesn't have to talk if he doesn't want to.
  • Flash to a room where Lambeau and some other math professor are arguing over an equation. Will just steps in and shows them an easier way of doing it.
  • After checking the formula, the visiting professor walks out of the room in shame. This all seems to make Lambeau very happy.
  • Now we're back in Maguire's office, and both he and Will are still refusing to talk. Maguire starts to fall asleep, and Will finally breaks the silence by telling a story about being on an airplane.
  • Maguire instantly recognizes that it's a joke and asks if Will has ever been on a plane. Will says no, but insists that the joke is funnier if he says it happened to him. He also tells Maguire he's had sex before.
  • Will tells Maguire about the date he went on with Skylar the week before. He says she's perfect, but he doesn't want to ruin it by getting to know her better.
  • Maguire tells a story about how his wife used to fart in her sleep. He and Will laugh hard at the story, and Maguire reflects on how funny it is that these are the sorts of things he remembers and misses when he talks about his wife.
  • Maguire reminds Will that he's not perfect and neither is the girl he's seeing. The whole point is being vulnerable and letting people see your imperfections.
  • Will asks Maguire if he's ever thought about getting remarried, but Maguire says his one and only wife is dead and that's that. But Will basically calls him a hypocrite for not opening himself back up to the world and being vulnerable.
