CLUB MEMBER #1

I'd come to the realization that

everything I'd based my life on was

false. And that my life had no

meaning.

CLUB MEMBER #2

(to Martin)

He gets this way when he hits over

eighty-five.

CLUB MEMBER #1

It seemed like my life was slipping

away, somehow. I was a knot in the

middle of a wet rope. Everything was

futile and nothing had value.

CLUB MEMBER #3

That's the way life is. The only

meaning and value is what we create.

Through structure, and discipline.

Though they seem to limit our freedom,

they actually give us great comfort.

Your problem is you're looking for

some great answer. Some ultimate

truth. When what you really should

do is go to work and go home.

CLUB MEMBER #2

And take golf lessons.

CLUB MEMBER #1

That's a tragedy. Can I finish my

story please? I began my search for

meaning. I was a Catholic, Jew,

Scientologist, Sufi, Buddhist. I

went to a Psychologist, psychiatrist,

herbalist, nutritionist, a shaman,

and a psychic. And they all pretty

much say the same stuff.
