You want the truth? You cant handle the truth!While Jack Nicholson indeed says the second part of this line in the film A Few Good Men, the correct dialogue sequence is: You want answers? I want the truth! You cant handle the truth! Cruises character, in response to being asked if he wants answers, responds that he thinks he is entitled; asked again if he wants answers, Cruise states that he wants the truth. This sets off the monologue from Nicholson that begins with You cant handle the truth! This misquotation is commonly used in parodies of the scene, including twice on The Simpsons. .
