Quotes from

Monica Teasdale: All the people who'll come to my funeral, that'll be quite an occasion.
Theodore Honey: Do you have a family, Miss Teasdale?
Monica Teasdale: No, not even a husband at the moment, but there's my agent. oh he'll be so sad, he had five more years at 10%. Then there's Lorene Calvart, oh she'll cry the most. She'll give a beautiful performance, and then she'll try to get the part in the picture I was going to make. I suppose that's why I don't feel the way I thought I would.


Theodore Honey: It just folded up! It folded right up and sat down!


Marjorie Corder: What happeend?
Theodore Honey: Nothing, nothing happened at all, my figures clearly said that the tail should fall off and the tail didn't fall off. It's 7% above my figure, it didn't fall off.
Marjorie Corder: Oh I'm sorry, what happens now?
Theodore Honey: I've been thinking about that on the way home, I'll go to the inquery and stand up and I'll explain my figures to a group of very angry men and they'll reject the whole thing. I'll sit down, I'll sit down and listen to them say that I'm insane because of what I did in Gander, and perhaps I am, I'm not sure you know. A wualified psychiatrist will testify to that, I talked to 3 of them this afternoon, no that was yesterday, wasn't it? They showed me a page of ink blots and asked me if it reminded me of elephants and tigers, I said no it didn't remind me of elephants and ti - they were just ink blots.
