Shakespeare’s entire “We have heard the chimes at midnight” scene is faithfully recreated in the 1991 film, My Own Private Idaho. Check it out. Especially notice this series of questions and answers faithfully recreated with Bob as Falstaff, and Budd as Master Shallow. And at the end of the scene, Keanu Reeves lifts a Falstaff beer, an elegant nod to he who shook the spear.
BUDD – Is Jane Nightwork alive, Bob?
BOB – She’s alive, Budd.
BUDD – Is she holding on?
BOB – Old. Old, Budd.
BUDD – She must be old. She has no choice.
BUDD CONTINUES: Jesus, the things we’ve seen. Aren’t I right, Bob? Aren’t I right?
BOB: We have heard the chimes at midnight.
BUDD: That we have. That we have. In fact, Bob, we have. Jesus. The things we’ve seen.
