#MicroblogMondays: Life Lessons from Good Will Hunting

The infamous park bench scene from Good Will Hunting

The infamous park bench scene from Good Will Hunting

Last Wednesday marked the anniversary of Robin Williams’ death. From proud parent to absentminded professor, from beloved Genie to playful Pan, Williams embodied so many iconic roles during his career. But my favorite moment was the Good Will Hunting scene where Sean tells Will how he met his wife.

That scene, to me, showcased the inimitable magic that Williams possessed in imparting life lessons across his iconic roles. His characters had a way of delivering these lessons to you in unpolished little packages that would strike a chord and make you remember. His line ‘I got to go see about a girl‘ defined this scene and this movie for me. It also lent credibility to certain life philosophies and standards I seem to have adopted for myself.

If you haven’t seen the scene or don’t remember it, you can watch it below. (I’d also recommend watching the movie as Matt and Williams deliver some kickass performances).

So what was your most memorable Robin Williams’ speech or role? Tell me below.

  1. I was just thinking about this movie today! I bought the twins Dead Poets Society, but I was thinking about buying this one for myself. Such a good movie.
