Maestro, it is true that a lot of singers my age are on the decline, but I seem to just get better and better.
Mr Wilson, are you leaving already? She's only just started.
-I've heard enough. Thank you.

-Will you be writing something?
Yes, and it will be the truth.
-Isn't the truth that a lot of hurt people are having some fun? Did you not notice?
Music is important. It should not be mocked.
Give the dame a break! She's singing her heart out.

Was everyone laughing at me the whole time?
-I was never laughing at you. Yours is the truest voice I have ever heard.
No, I could never never sing again. Except to you. People may say I couldn't sing, but no one can say I didn't sing.
Your voice was as fresh as the morning dew till the very last, Florence.
You're nothing but a jumped-up hack. Name your price, Wilson. What is it? 100? Is it 200? $300, that's my final offer.
- You're insane.
500. .... Listen! Listen to them, hack! " sings "Queen of the Night" (out of tune) Figlia mia non ... (sings coloratura, out of tune) ... (sings coloratura sustained out-of-tune, high note) ...
