(Geoffrey is talking to Charles because Charles has been very unfriendly and rude towards the other actors and actresses.)
Geoffrey Tennant: They are afraid of you. You are very ... intimidating.
Charles Kingman: Well, that's not my problem.
Geoffrey Tennant: Yes it is. They haven't been with this play as long as you have. None of us have. You have got to give us some time to catch up.
Charles Kingman: I don't have time.
Geoffrey Tennant: Charles, c'mon, we have weeks before we open.
Charles Kingman: I'm not talking about that. I have cancer, Geoffrey.
Geoffrey Tennant: You have cancer?
Charles Kingman: Yes, I have two, three months, so you'll forgive me if my patience is a little strained.
