Good Will Hunting (1997)

Corrected entry: In the scene where the four guys are walking up to the Harvard bar for the first time, Morgan is asking Will how he was fired from his janitorial job, and then Chuckie offers Will a job working construction. Will in fact does not loose his job before this scene. This is because later, when Lambeau asks the men in the Buildings and Grounds office about Will, Will's boss says that he "didn't show up for work today," meaning that he still had his job. They would not be expecting Will had he been fired. If he was fired, the movie never attempts to explain why. (00:15:30)

Correction: The fact that Will told his friends he was fired doesn't mean it's true - he might have told them that to hide the fact that he left his job because of the incident with Lambeau.
