When Life Imitates Art

From Saturday Night Fever:
Fusco: You can save a little, build a future.
Tony Manero: Oh fuck the future!
Fusco: No, Tony! You can't fuck the future. The future fucks you! It catches up with you and it fucks you if you ain't planned for it!
Tony Manero: Look, tonight is the future, and I am planning for it. There's this shirt I gotta buy, a beautiful shirt.
Cheers to the US government (and the culture itself) for continuing to chant that mantra, "Fuck the future," for about three decades. Looks like the future's about right now. Ready?
