FAHRENHEIT 451 -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
Well ... what sort were these then, Montag?
[Montag] I didn't really look, sir. A little bit of everything. Novels, biographies, adventure stories.
[Captain] Oh, routine, eh? Why will they do it? It's sheer perversity. By the way ...
[Fireman] Pass it over.
[Captain] What does Montag do with his day off duty?
[Montag] Not very much, sir. Mow the lawn.
[Captain] And what if the law forbids that?
[Montag] Just watch it grow, sir.
[Captain] Uh-huh. Good. Good. Montag might be hearing some exciting news in a day or two. Benedict won't be with us very much longer, and Montag's name has been mentioned.
[Montag] Promotion, sir?
[Captain] I trust that the thought makes Montag happy.
