Line in Almost Famous
- I saw Almost Famous when it was released in theaters a dozen years ago.
One line that stuck with me was Lester Bangs telling William Miller (the
Cameron Crowe stand-in) that "friendship is the drug that they offer
you," referring what rock band members do to get favorable coverage from
the reporters covering them. I checked that scene on YouTube today and
it shows up as "friendship is the booze they feed you." IMDB also
shows that as the line.
I'm wondering whether I misremember the line, or if it was changed when
the movie was released to VHS and DVD (to make it pass muster with
Wal-Mart and the like. Can anyone help shed some light on this?
