Andrew McTeague: Oliver Wells, ...
Oliver Wells: Yes?
Andrew McTeague: Was he a passionate man?
Oliver Wells: Famously!
Geoffrey Tennant: Why are we talking about Oliver Wells?
Andrew McTeague: Oh, his name has come up quite a few times.
Geoffrey Tennant: Oliver Wells?
Andrew McTeague: Yes, you've mentioned him on several occasions.
Geoffrey Tennant: No, I haven't.
Andrew McTeague: Yes, you have.
Geoffrey Tennant: No I haven't.
Andrew McTeague: Yeah, you have.
Geoffrey Tennant: No.
Andrew McTeague: (reads from his notes) Oliver Wells has directed you in several plays at the festival, Oliver Wells betrayed you, Oliver Wells destroyed the soul of the festival ...
Geoffrey Tennant: All right, all right, all right! Well he is, he was part of my life for a number of years whether I liked it or not, so obviously his name gonna come up. I mean, I had a pet dog when I was a kid, his name was Ruffles, he was part of my life for eleven years.
Andrew McTeague: You never mentioned Ruffles.
Oliver Wells: Do you consider him a mentor?
Andrew McTeague: Sounds like he's haunting you, Oliver, not Ruffles ...
Geoffrey Tennant: Haunting me? You know, you should listen to yourself!
Andrew McTeague: Oh no, I don't mean literally of course, you know, the people who have made an impact on us, our parents, friends, loved ones often linger in our minds long after they've lived their lives, they become part of the mechanism of our psyche. I think it would be helpful if we focused on Oliver for a while.
Oliver Wells: Finally!
