The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1956)

“I want you to go in that room there, shut the door after you, and write me your autobiography in one hour. Everything you can think about yourself. In one hour. Explain yourself for us. Examine your life and tell us just what kind of person you are, and why we should hire you. And at the end, I want you to finish this sentence for me: ‘The most significant thing about me is __________.’

It’s now five minutes to twelve. Try to have it finished by one o’clock. The results, of course, will be entirely confidential.”

—Fredric March, as ‘Ralph Hopkins’
