Fun Stuff

From Topsy-Turvy (1999)
Gilbert: You, do?
[referring to the chorus members belief that the Mikado song should not have been cut]
Mr. Price: Yes, sir, we do so.
Female Chorus Member: Yes, especially after all our extremely hard work and of course, Mr. Temple's.
Gilbert: I'm very sorry for you, but as we all know, it's an unjust world.
Male Chorus Member: We all feel it would have been a great benefit to the opera.
Female Chorus Member: And it's fair for it to be left to the audience to decide.
Gilbert: Is this the considered opinion of you all?
Chorus Members: It is, sir.
Mr. Kent: I am not a party to this, Mr. Gilbert.
