"I don't wish to be impertinent, Miss Walters, but it's an argument worth rehearsing. You never know; someone else might want to know the point of it all one day."

In the movie, An Education, student Jenny argues with her headmistress about the value of a traditional education vs. leaving school to marry an older man who has exposed her to art, music and travel.

See the clip below with the full context of the argument.
