  • Allusions

    • Tommy Burris: Anthony was a failure. (volume rising) He was tyranny of the weak, but I didn't kill him!

      Since Oscar Wilde was referring to women, this metaphor is slightly off, but Burris is referencing a line from act three of Wilde's play, A Woman of No Importance: "The worst form of tyranny the world has ever known … the tyranny of the weak over the strong. It is the only tyranny that lasts."
