Ao segundo tema do excelente Quietly ouvimos um sample dum filme, alguma vez se questionaram/ pesquisaram? É do filme Network de 1976, filme que voltou a ser falado no ano passado após o Oscar póstumo de Heath Ledger visto que Peter Finch foi o primeiro a vencer tal prémio. Em relação ao filme, é uma excelente sátira, diria que actual mesmo que já tenham passado trinta anos, sobre as estações de televisão e a tentativa a tudo custo de obter audiências. Eis o discurso de Howard Beale:
I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.” Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad.
