Is this the best FI/RE movie scene? (NSFW)

Great scene, eh movie

I was thinking recently about a time that a previous employer asked me to do something completely unsavory. I tried to negotiate out of it, and I was turned down. After hanging up the phone, I started thinking about this scene. I’m not a big fan of Marky Mark or the movie in general, but I’ll always remember the wise words of John Goodman. I remember sitting in the theater thinking about walking out on a boring movie when this scene started playing. Hard not to cheer when big ol’ John gets going!

Being partway there

Even if you’re not ready for early retirement, being on the path opens up doorways that previously didn’t exist. When you’re trying to save up enough money to last you a life time, you can walk away from something you don’t want to do. That’s power over your life.

Are there any other good FI/RE movies or scenes out there?

  1. I’ve never seen this movie but I have to admit I’m a bit intrigued after watching it. I love the monologue and feel like there are some in the FIRE community that could have written it 🙂
