Watched Goonies the other night. STILL HOLDS UP. It's about a bunch of kids who find a treasure map. It's a kid's dream, all pirates, bad guys, golden treasure and adventure! And the kids follow the map. It leads them underground through all sorts of booby traps.
It's a tough journey.
Then they find themselves on the bottom of a well. There's a bucket. Troy, the town jerk off, is waiting to rescue them.
But Mikey says:
"Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here. That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket."

It never fails this speech. NEVER!
