Minderbinder: […] I know how you feel, but it wasn’t my fault.

Yossarian: Whose fault was it?

Minderbinder: No one’s. Nately was the victim of certain economic pressures, the laws of supply and demand. […] Nately died a wealthy man, Yossarian. He had over sixty shares in the syndicate.

Yossarian: What difference does that make? He’s dead.

Minderbinder: Then his family will get it.

Yossarian: He didn’t have time to have a family.

Minderbinder: Then his parents will get it.

Yossarian: They don’t need it, they’re rich.

Minderbinder: Then they’ll understand.

-Catch-22 (1970)
