The Weaver Commission? (Devil's Advocate Film)
Asked Aug 12, 2008, 01:56 AM
I was just wondering if someone could explain a line from a scene for me?
In The Devil's Advocate there is a scene where Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) walks in on Eddie Barzoon (Jeffrey Jones) and a load of other employees shredding boxes full of paperwork, 'Housekeeping' as he puts it!
The following exchange ensues;
EB: "If anyone should ask ... you never saw this."
KL: "Who would ask?"
KL: "Who's that?"
EB: "Justice Department. Weaver Commission. You don't know about him?"
EB: "How nice for you!"
Later on he runs into a guy called Mitch Weaver from the Justice Department.
What is all this about? I don't know if it's because I'm British or just because I'm dumb, but I don't get it! Ha ha!
Thanks for all your help in advance!
"Maybe it means you're the evil man and I'm the righteous man and Mr. 9mm here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous a$$ in the valley of darkness.
Or it could mean you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish.
Now I'd like that. But that s*** ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men.
But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be a shepherd."
