'If you want to shake things up, you start with something small. You break a norm, or an idea, or a convention, some little business model. But you go with things that people are kind of tired of anyway.' - Miles Bron Click To Tweet

'As it turns out, nobody wants you to break the system itself. But that is what true disruption is.' - Miles Bron (Glass Onion) Click To Tweet

'I keep returning, in my mind, to the Glass Onion. Something that seems densely layered, mysterious and inscrutable. But in fact, the center is in plain sight.' - Benoit Blanc Click To Tweet
Miles Bron: If you want to shake things up, you start with something small. You break a norm, or an idea, or a convention, some little business model. But you go with things that people are kind of tired of anyway. Everybody gets excited because you’re busting up something that everyone wanted broken in the first place. That’s the infraction point. That’s the place where you have to look within yourself, and ask, “Am I the kind of person who will keep going?” Will you break more things? Break bigger things? Are you willing to break the thing that nobody wants you to break? Because at that point, people are not going to be on your side. They’re going to call you crazy. They’re going to say you’re a bully. They’re going to tell you to stop.
Miles Bron: As it turns out, nobody wants you to break the system itself. But that is what true disruption is. And that is what unites all of us. We all got to that line and crossed it.
'I expected complexity. I expected intelligence. I expected a puzzle, a game. But that's not what any of this is. It hides not behind complexity, but behind mind-numbing obvious clarity. Truth is, it doesn't hide at all.' Click To Tweet
Helen Brand: That is the common thread here. Every single one of you is holding on for dear life to Miles Bron’s golden titties. And each of you, you’ll stab a friend in the back to hold on. That is what I believe.
Birdie Jay: Like Miles said, I’m a truth-teller. Some people can’t handle it.
Benoit Blanc: It’s a dangerous thing to mistake speaking without thought for speaking the truth. Don’t you think?
Birdie Jay: Are you calling me dangerous?
Benoit Blanc: Well, we’ll see.

Miles Bron: Welcome, gang. A few cocktails before I’m murdered.
Birdie Jay: Is this my Cuban Breeze?
Miles Bron: The drink that got us on the no-fly list at St. Barts. What else?
Birdie Jay: Well, hashtag, WorthIt.
