Final produced screenplay of Mark Kasdan.
We were meant to act, even if we make mistakes. That's why we put a sharp point on a pencil and why we put an eraser on the other end.
Professor Clemtes relays a story from his hospital bed about meeting Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis shortly after graduating from law school. The movie is set is present day (1988). The Brandeis left the bench in 1939. That would make the professor about 2 decades older than he seems to appear in the film.
