When you go off in the world and make your life, and you come back to your home town, and you find your old high-school friends driving in the same circles, doing the same things, that's what Hollywood's like. It's a little block, little town. It doesn't really grow or change.

We are not made up, as we had always supposed, of successively enriched packets of our own parts. We are shared, rented, occupied.
