Definitely not a PC movie scene in today's climate, but nonetheless, Steve Buscemi as Danny McGrath in the "apology" phone call scene in Billy Madison, was nothing short of brilliant.  He answers the phone so nonchalantly and when Billy says who he is and why he's calling, Danny brushes it off like "no big deal," like he had graduated high school and never gave the bullying a second thought.  He accepts Billy's apology, again, "no big deal" and hangs up the phone. He lets out a sigh then reaches for his "People to Kill List" where Billy Madison's name is scrawled in all caps, right in the center of the page. Danny reaches for a red marker, unceremoniously crosses out Billy's name then reaches for a tube of bright red lipstick that he smears on his lips before collapsing back into the couch to contemplate life; cue: "Telephone Line" by Electric Light Orchestra. Good stuff. Good, good, stuff. 


Thanks for the laugh.
