# What movie quote does this represent?

This describes the quote:

private function cross(question:Boolean):Number {
if (question) {
}
}

• Don't know which language this is... Does "answer" go out of scope after the if-block? – KeyboardWielder May 24 '16 at 11:22
• @KeyboardWielder I think it's ActionScript. I don't know if it actually compiles though. – BaSzAt May 24 '16 at 11:23
• @BaSzAt 'Tis Actionscript. Does compile. – Chowzen May 24 '16 at 11:43
• Same general idea and same answer as What famous dialogue does this Java code represent?. – DylanSp May 24 '16 at 12:59

I'm going to take a guess

"You can't handle the truth", from A Few Good Men. I'm assuming that a complex number can't be handled by whatever Number is.

EDIT: Doing some research, it seems that no, complex number handling is not built in to AS's Number class and as such this is a valid interpretation of the above code.

• The funny thing is that as soon as I saw the function named "cross" (as in cross-examine), this is the quote I thought it would be, but I couldn't figure out how it connected. – Ryan May 24 '16 at 15:36

My try:

From the movie:

Explanation:

the variable truth can mean true. So the if statement is evaluated to true and the answer is always $\sqrt{-1}$ which is i.
'cross' can be a reference to prayer. I know it's a long shot but maybe...
