Nicholas

  • This was iced tea.
  • Did I have a choice? Did I have a choice?
  • I'm being toyed with by a bunch of depraved children.
  • I don't care about the money. I'm pulling back the curtain. I want to meet the wizard.
  • And you really believe that just because you publish children's books, people are going to care about my reputation? You can have pictures of me wearing nipple rings, butt-fucking Captain Kangaroo. The only thing they care about is the stock and whether that stock is up or down!

Conrad

  • They won't leave me alone! I'm a goddam human piñata!
  • They fuck you and fuck you and fuck you, and just when you think it's over, that's when the real fucking begins!
