The clip election press conference from Brewster's Millions (1985)
Running for office is expensive, and it's unheard of to do it with your own money.
Yeah. What's he know about politics?
He's trying to do some good.
I've figured this out. That's why he gets upset when he makes a profit.
It makes him feel guilty. He's trying to do the right thing for once in his life.
Mr Brewster! Mr Brewster!
Mr Brewster, could you give us your reasons...
..for your sudden and unexpected candidacy?
I figure voting for Salvino or Heller is just as silly as them running for office.
That's as silly as me running for office.
What is not silly is the power of the people's vote.
I think the people should use it to vote for...
..none of the above!
Are we to understand that you don't actually want anyone to vote for you?
What I'm saying is I think only an idiot would vote for me.
Mr Brewster, have you taken positions on any of the issues facing the city?
Sanitation, union corruption...
The bottom line is I'm here to buy your votes.
With only 10 days left before the election,...
..how will you find support for that position?
I don't expect support. I'm asking people not to send money in to my candidacy.
They should keep their money. They'll need it after this election.
