I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve Jesus does anybody This quote from the movie Stand by Me directed by Rob Reiner was said by the character Gordie Wil Wheaton a boy who was just about to enter Junior High When he typed up those words on his computer years later when he was looking back on those days he was referring to his three friends Chris Vern and Teddy Chris River Phoenix was the leader of the little group Gordies best friend and a very complex character According to Freud Chris would appear to be heavily influenced but not controlled by his superego Some evidence to support this theory would be the constant talk about some milk money that Chris had stolen the belief that he was going nowhere and how he supported his friends throughout the movie As the movie progresses it keeps informing us more and more about an incident when Chris had stolen milk money from some girl He stole the milk-money at school Hes a thief in my book This accusation coming out of the mouth of Gordies father was meant to be an insult about Gordies choice in a best friend Another way of looking at this quote would be to say that everyone knew that Chris stole the money Oh it is No one even asked me if I took the milk money that time I just got a three-day vacation This quote which expresses Chris frustration shows what he thought about the whole situation that he had been placed in The truth was that everyone DID know that he had taken the money While these two quotes dont say much the next quote ties the whole story together Yeah So lets just say that I stole the milk money but Old Lady Simons stole it back from me Just suppose that I told the story Me Chris Chambers
