    • Geoffrey Tennant: You were talking to Charles. Oliver Wells: It was a bit awkward. We're not entirely comfortable with each other. Geoffrey Tennant: If I wasn't imagining it ... Oliver Wells: Personally, I don't think it's a good sign. Geoffrey Tennant: More evidence of my insanity? Oliver Wells: Not that! Why can I talk to Charles now? Why now and not before? Geoffrey Tennant: I don't know. I barely understand the rules of my own world along with yours. Oliver Wells: Because he has one foot in the grave as it were. Time is running out. Oh, it's so much to do. We've gonna have to start from scratch. Geoffrey Tennant: We my dead friend? Does that mean you're back on board? Oliver Wells: Well, now he's my friend too.

    • (Anna has found out about Charles having cancer and offers her help.) Geoffrey Tennant: This is a flat out one hundred percent mess. Don't get yourself involved. Anna Conroy: Not everybody gets to do what they want before they die but they should.

    • Geoffrey Tennant: You could quit. Ellen Fanshaw: Oh, that would be quite a statement, abandoning the sinking ship. Geoffrey Tennant: Well, you already took a running dive out of our relationship. Ellen Fanshaw: Not quite. I was in a lifeboat, pulling you behind. Geoffrey Tennant: No, more like I was tied to the anchor and I was fighting for air! Ellen Fanshaw: I was pulling that anchor right ... I just forgot the metaphor!

    • (Charles has had an accident in the bathtub, causing him to miss the premiere of "King Lear".) Charles Kingman: I hope death is not like being stuck in a tub, listening to a telephone ring you can't answer. Oliver Wells: That's like something from Beckett. Charles Kingman: (answering to Oliver who had only been visible to Geoffrey before) Oh god, what if he was right? Oliver Wells: He wasn't far off. It is a terribly empty experience. Perhaps it evolves. We get out of the tub ... Charles Kingman: And we get our heart's desire. Oliver Wells: Maybe you have to suffer in the tub before you know your reward. Charles Kingman: As if suffering in life is not enough? Geoffrey Tennant: Okay, what's going on? Oliver Wells: Ah, it's a death thing, you wouldn't understand Charles Kingman: One thought that comforts me is that death is natural. Everyone dies. I'm not cursed, just part of the natural world. Oliver Wells: That feeling wears off when you actually die. After that things get very unnatural indeed. Geoffrey Tennant: Okay Charles, where do you keep your booze?

    • Charles Kingman: Be honest. When I didn't turn up you thought I was dead and for a tiny moment your were relieved. Geoffrey Tennant: Only briefly.
