Tobias, the Mayor: But you know what's the most wonderful thing about New York? It's where everyone comes to get fucked. It's one of the last places where people are still willing to bend over to let in the new. And the old. New Yorkers are, uh, permeable. You know what I mean?

Ceth: Yeah.

Tobias, the Mayor: You sure?

Ceth: Yeah.

Tobias, the Mayor: Therefore, we're sane. Consequently, we're the target of the impermeable. And the insane. And of course, New York is where everyone comes to be forgiven. What've you done wrong? Tell me. How have you sinned? I'm sure it's nothing serious.

Ceth: How would you know?

Tobias, the Mayor: Well, I'm... I'm sure you did your best. But imagine if you grew up here, like I did. Home can be very unforgiving. It's true. People said I didn't do enough to help prevent the AIDS crisis, because I was in the closet. That's not true. I did the best I could. I was... I was scared. And impermeable. Everybody knew so little then. I know even less now.
