: When will you make an end? Michelangelo
: When I am finished!
: For what is an artist in this world but a servant, a lackey for the rich and powerful? Before we even begin to work, to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron, a rich man of affairs, or a merchant, or a prince or... a Pope. We must bow, fawn, kiss hands to be able to do the things we must do or die.
: We are harlots always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty. Michelangelo
: If it comes to that, I won't be an artist. Raphael
] You'll always be an artist. You have no choice.
: Good evening, Your Holiness. The Pope
: Evening, Michelangelo. I want to talk to you about this painting of yours, The Last Supper. I'm not happy about it. Michelangelo
: Oh, dear. It took me hours. The Pope
: Not happy at all. Michelangelo
: Is it the jello you don't like? The Pope
: No. Michelangelo
: It does add a bit of colour, doesn't it. Oh, I know, you don't like the kangaroo. The Pope
: What kangaroo? Michelangelo
: No problem, I'll paint him out. The Pope
: I never saw a kangaroo. Michelangelo
: Uh, he's right at the back. No sweat, I'll make him into a disciple. All right? The Pope
: That's the problem. Michelangelo
: What is? The Pope
: The disciples. Michelangelo
: Are they too Jewish? I made Judas the most Jewish. The Pope
: No, it's just that there are 28 of them.
