    • Richard Smith-Jones: I'm cancelling. Geoffrey Tennant: No, Richard, we can make this thing work. Richard Smith-Jones: It's cancelled. Geoffrey Tennant: Richard ... Richard Smith-Jones: It's over! Geoffrey Tennant: Let me tell Charles. Richard Smith-Jones: Be my guest, use my phone. Geoffrey Tennant: Well, I can't right now. He's over at the hospital, having a brain scan. I'm going over and I'll tell him then. Richard Smith-Jones: Good. And hey, while you're there, why don't you see if you can snag one of these brain scans for yourself.

    • Geoffrey Tennant: I know, you haven't seen it but I have. Charles is Lear. And what the hell is my mandate anyway? I'm supposed to be putting on great performances of great plays. Richard Smith-Jones: Great! Then next season we start using live ammo.

    • (Richard and Geoffrey at Richard's office.) Richard Smith-Jones: So, he's an addict. Geoffrey Tennant: Well, you saw the needle. A hell of a shock. I don't know, I'm guessing he had some kind of an addictive personality, sort of syndrome maybe. Anyway, I think what you and I should do, we have got to find a methadone clinic, right now, right here in New Burbage. Richard Smith-Jones: You fucking liar! He's got cancer! Geoffrey Tennant: Barbara told you. Richard Smith-Jones: Yes. You're gonna put a dying man on stage? Geoffrey Tennant: Oh no, Richard, that really depends on how you define dying. Richard Smith-Jones: Jesus, Geoffrey, this is not a philosophical discussion! Geoffrey Tennant: What was I supposed to do? He begged me not to tell anybody. It's his dying wish! Richard Smith-Jones: Geoffrey, if my dying wish is to drive a city bus blindfolded, you know, do us all a favour, you say no!

    • (Charles is supposed to enter the scene. He's all mixed up, obviously taking the play for real.) Oliver Wells: He thinks he's Lear! Richard Smith-Jones: Geoffrey! Geoffrey! Geoffrey Tennant: You have to go out there and tell them that we're cancelling. Richard Smith-Jones: I can't. You know ... no, you go this time! Geoffrey Tennant: Oh no, I don't think I can, I think I'll start weeping. Richard Smith-Jones: And you think I won't?

    • (Charles is raving at his dressing room because Anna wouldn't let him shoot up heroin. Geoffrey is interfering.) Geoffrey Tennant: Charles, look at me. The play, the Lear. Charles Kingman: I am Lear. Geoffrey Tennant: He's fine.
