Will (Matt Damon) rides the Red Line from MIT, where he worked as a janitor, home to Southie.Â
Ben Affleck: Thatâ€™s my favorite shot of the movie. Itâ€™s beautiful and raw and real and it embraces this idea that the environment was the thing.
Will breaks up with Skylar (Minnie Driver) in the Harvard dorms.Â
Chris Moore (producer): The pain you see in Willâ€™s faceâ€”how heâ€™s not sure that this is the right thing to do, but heâ€™s going to do it because he never lets himself get vulnerable with anybodyâ€”I just think itâ€™s a great, great piece.
Sean (Robin Williams) tells Will, â€śItâ€™s not your faultâ€ť in a therapy session.
Lawrence Bender (producer): The writing is so amazing. My mother, who is a therapist, uses that movie for some of her teenagers. I think it resonates with a lot of younger guys.
Sean talks to Will about his future while sitting on a bench in the Public Garden.
Robin Williams: Just the idea of that kind of beauty, the experiences that youâ€™ve had, and telling the kid, â€śHey listen, if you donâ€™t get out and experience life, youâ€™re not going to have this stuff, you wonâ€™t have anything. Youâ€™ve got to pull your head out of your ass, literally.â€ť
Will sends Chuckie (Ben Affleck) to a job interview in his place.
Patrick Whitesell (agent): Itâ€™s the most underrated scene in the movie. Itâ€™s spectacular comedy that didnâ€™t get its due.
Missy Stewart (production designer): Heâ€™s in the chair with those ridiculous short pants and mixes his metaphors like madâ€”I just love that scene so much.
