    • Grey: There's a mermaid to starboard!
      Bill: A mermaid? I can't even see the bend in the river and you can see a mermaid to starboard.
      Grey: Blake, you're a good pilot but you don't have an eye for women.

    • Grey: Now you just tell--you just tell him to leave my crew alone. I almost wrecked the boat on the sandbar when I was trying to get that trunk aboard. And now he's got my whole crew yelling from the diaphragm.
      Juliet: He just makes loud noises so he won't hear the sound of his heart breaking.

    • Grey: Now then you just stay here in the carriage and, uh, show us a nice smile and a little ankle. That's for the men, I'll take care of the women.
      Juliet: I'm sure you will.
      Grey: Yes...

    • Sir Oliver: This was Hamlet's dagger. This was the chalice that held the poisoned wine.
      Grey: Here, that's for me.
      Sir Oliver: I used it in Romeo and Juliet.
      Grey: Didn't have a very happy ending either, did it?
      Sir Oliver: They were all great tragedies and they were great triumphs. Through these curtains I have taken calls to a king at a command performances. Magnificently said, my Brutus, my Hamlet, Othello the Moor, Macbeth, King Lear. Where do the years go?

    • Sir Olive: My Romeo was great because of my Juliet. No, not this little girl of mine who thinks she's fallen in love with you. her mother. She was fair Desdemona to my Othello, my wicked Lady MacBeth, my Ophelia. Do you think it's enough for an actor to stand up and here the applause with no one there to share it with him? Flattery can fool you. It's like the river, it's treacherous. It's a risk every actor must take. She was my partner, my faith, my confidence in myself, my courage. She always told me the truth. Every night tremendous, thunderous applause. And we'd stand there hand-in-hand and we would take our calls. We were a team, we shared a dream. And now without that dream... every stage has become a nightmare. Forty years on the boards and I'm afraid, Captain. I'm afraid.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Sir Oliver Garrett: Out, out brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player who struts and frets his his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
      Sir Oliver quotes from Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 3, and alludes to his own life as an actor and how it's been wasted on stage.

    • Sir Oliver Garrett: Blow, wind! Come, wrack! At least we'll die with harness on our back.
      Sir Oliver quotes from Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5, Page 3.
