Sic Transit Gloria



(/sɪk tɹæn.zɪt ɡloː.ri.a/)

1. A Latin phrase meaning “glory fades”

Max stands alone smoking a cigarette in front of a pile of leaves. A LAWN CREW is raking in the background. Max strikes a match, throws it on the leaves, and watches sadly as the leaves burn and smoke rises black into the crisp autumn air. He takes off his Rushmore blazer and throws it on the fire. He looks up at the sky and says quietly:

“Sic transit gloria, Mr. Blume. Sic transit gloria.”
