    • (Ellen and Geoffrey on why Ellen still sticks with the theater)
      Ellen Fanshaw: I don't know how to do anything else. I'd starve to death if I left the theater.
      Geoffrey Tennant: You stay at the theater because you don't want to starve to death? Now, that's ironic.
      Ellen Fanshaw: And I like it. I like it when the story's good and the audience is listening.
      Geoffrey Tennant: And you like the good reviews and you like the standing ovations and you like all those fans.
      Ellen Fanshaw: Yes, I'm shallow. I'm shallow, I admit it. I wonder what life would be like if I could bake or something.
      Geoffrey Tennant: Ah, well, you would be the bakery queen and you would be constantly late, you'd be petty and argumentative and everyone would hate you, but the people, they would still line up to buy your tarts.
