    • (Geoffrey is angry because Oliver has set free Ellen's pet chameleon, causing Claire to fall off the stage and break her leg.) Oliver Wells: It's not like I broke her leg myself. I don't know what you're so upset about, it was that lizard. Geoffrey Tennant: She is in the hospital! Oliver Wells: Better there than on the stage. Oh, I'm trying to help, Geoffrey. I'm trying to find my place in all this and if that means making manifest your secret desires, then so be it. Geoffrey Tennant: My secret desires? Oliver Wells: You imagined strangling her yourself a thousand times. Geoffrey Tennant: Oh, so you can read my mind now? Is that what you are telling me? Oliver Wells: Don't be ridiculous. I know you. You would never have fired her. You'd have spent days with her, trying to squeeze out something resembling a decent performance. Every other aspect of the production would have suffered. I did you a favour. Geoffrey Tennant: Oliver! I don't want your favours anymore!

    • Geoffrey Tennant: (after explaining to Claire what Ophelia's allegedly meaningless songs are about) Now, let's try it again without the Vietnam flashbacks.

    • Geoffrey Tennant: Jack's bucket? Nahum: Yes. It's good, it's really relaxing. Geoffrey Tennant: It's kind of nasty for you though. Nahum: If I were bothered by vomit, I would not work in the theater.

    • (Holly is driving in her car, listening to a tape.) Tape: (with Holly mumbling the same words) I am the center of my universe. All things revolve around me. My power is beyond measure. I am God.

    • Geoffrey Tennant: Jack, listen to me, there are a lot of people who don't think you can pull this thing off. I think they're wrong.
