Guy Noir, Private Eye
Guy Noir (Garrison Keillor): It was one of those beautiful spring mornings in St. Paul when the world is green and wondrous and full of new life and some of the new life drifts on the breeze in the form of pollen and your eyes start to puff up and your nose fills up with new mucous. That's how it is with nature. Gives with one hand and takes with the other. I was trying to explain this to Wendell the news boy------
Teen: Is that something like the yin and the yang?
GK: No, it's the principle that inside every silver lining there's a storm cloud.
Teen: Is that what they call stoicism, Mr. Noir?
GK: No, it's called realism, Wendell. Stoicism is when you collect a lot of stuff and stow it in closets.
Teen: Oh. In college I think they said it was stoicism.
GK: Realism. You weren't listening very well, Wendell. You didn't heed what your professor said: you're not a hedonist.
Teen: I thought hedonism was someone devoted to selfish pleasure, Mr. Noir.
GK: You're thinking of teenager.
