I worked at a movie theatre for a very long time and was a certified projectionist so I have a fondness for movies and like to read the movie scripts to catch those little things that did not make it on the screen or where hard to understand, Grosse Pointe Blank is one of my favorite movies....here is one of my favorite scenes...
Some of whats happened before this scene.
So Martin is back in town to kill someone and not go to his 10 year high school reunion and needs to fix some things in his life that were left unfixed before he took off and left Grosse Pointe Behind...

Well, there's not much to tell.
I'm sure you've done worthwhile things in
the last ten years. You've had
You met people.
Jesus. Marty. You're pathetic. It sounds
like you need a Shockabuku.
It's a swift spiritual kick to the head
that alters your reality forever.
That'd be good.
What do you want?
The question is open.
I figured I could pick you up tomorrow
around seven o'clock.
Let me get this straight, are you asking
Seven it is.
