The clip joel's memories from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) with Mark Ruffalo, Jim Carrey
February is very busy for us because of Valentine's Day.
This is, uh, Stan Fink,
one of our most experienced and skilled technicians.
He'll be handling your case tonight.
Great to meet you, Mr. Barish.
My name is Joel Barish,
and I'm here to erase Clementine Kruczynski.
Very good. Now, tell me about, uh, Clementine.
Uh, I was...
living with this woman, Naomi,
uh, a couple years ago,
and my friends Rob and Carrie invited us to this party at the beach... I don't like parties.
Naomi couldn't go, but I went...
and I, uh, met Clementine.
Let's start with your most recent memories...
and work backwards from there, more or less.
There's an emotional core...
to each of our memories,
and when you eradicate that core it starts its degradation process.
By the time you wake up in the morning,
all the memories we've targeted will have withered and disappeared,
as in a dream upon waking.
Is there any risk of brain damage?
Well, uh, technically speaking,
the procedure is brain damage,
but it's on a par with a night of heavy drinking.
Nothing you'll miss.
What we're doing here, Mr. Barish, is actually creating a map of your brain.
Okay, let's get started.
If we want to get this procedure underway tonight, we have some work to do.
I want you to react to these objects, Mr. Barish, if you will.
There's a good story behind this one...
