One can only hope.

Joel: What’s the point of being a writer or an artist anyway? Herman Melville wrote Moby Dick, he was so poor and forgot by the time he died that in his obituary they called him Henry Melville. You know, like why bother? They’re just going to forget our
names anyway.

James Brennan: I wish it didn’t end like that, I should’ve – I don’t know.
James Brennan: Your Herman Melville story that – that’s bullshit.

Joel: It’s true, they called him Henry.

James Brennan: No, I mean, he wrote a seven-hundred page allegorical novel about the whaling industry. I think he was a pretty passionate guy, Joel. I hope they call me Henry when I die, too.

Joel: One can only hope.
