13 Phones of Halloween #2

Oh if only Sarah Goldfarb had been able to swat away that phone call for good, and never answered it. If only. But no...

... answer it she did, and nobody's ever found 
more tragedy from being told they're a winner than she.

"That's right, Mrs. Golfarb.
Television. Congratulations."

Tell me you can look at the emotions crossing Ellen Burstyn's face in just that reaction shot alone without tears welling in your eyes and I'll let you know the address to the robot factory you came from so you can go back there and they can work on your "emotions" chip since it's clearly malfunctioning. This performance remains, fifteen years on, as devastating to me as ever.

"I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. 
Soon millions of people will see me and they'll all like me."
