    • Darren Nichols : I'm used to being hated, that's my thing, but I can't function as a director unless that hatred is kept in check by a thin, calculated veneer of invulnerability.

    • (Geoffrey addressing the staff.) Geoffrey Tennant: There are some of you who will be terrified to learn that I'm going to take over direction of this play. There are others who will be thrilled because they know that in my production there will be little danger of you stepping in a pile of horse shit. But I think that there is one thing that both, the pro-Geoffrey and the anti-Geoffrey, camps can agree upon and that is, that my reason may very well be hanging by a thread. Well, my friends, it is my belief that the best of happens just before the thread snaps.

    • May Silverstone: Be prepared for a rough ride. Geoffrey Tennant: A rough ride? May, we've lost two weeks of rehearsal, the new director is a certified madman and the Hamlet is an action figure, it's going to be a goddamn death march!

    • (Geoffrey is notifying the staff that he is going to take over directing Hamlet.) Geoffrey Tennant: Greetings, actors, I have news from my planet.

    • Geoffrey Tennant: I'm a turd, I know that but I have finally done something, something positive. Richard Smith-Jones: What, you are going to see a therapist? Geoffrey Tennant: No, I've fired Darren Nichols. May Silverstone: Oh god, no. Richard Smith-Jones: Jesus Christ, you can't do that, you don't have the authority. Geoffrey Tennant: Really? I just did it. He's on his way back to the Weimar. Forget about him. Richard Smith-Jones: What about our Hamlet? Geoffrey Tennant: I'll direct it. May Silverstone: You? Geoffrey Tennant: That's what you wanted in the first place, wasn't it? May Silverstone: That was before you went on a drunken stabbing spree. Geoffrey Tennant: C'mon, I barely broke his lily white skin.
