It's a Wonderful Life (if you're rich)

Poor George Bailey needed $8,000 or he was going to jail. All the townspeople broke open their piggy banks to help him out. Awwww, how sweet. But what else happens in that scene? Sam Wainwright sends a telegram authorizing up to $25,000 to be wired to George. So basically none of the efforts of the peasants really mattered.

The true moral of the film is "it's good to have rich friends".
