Behind the Candelabra (2013 TV Movie)
Liberace: [Final love song] Why do I love you? I love you not only for what you are, But for what I am when I'm with you I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, But for what you are making of me. I love you for ignoring the possibilities of the fool in me, And for accepting the possibilities of the good in me. Why do I love you? I love you for closing your eyes to the discords in me, And for adding to the music in me by worshipful listening. I love you for helping me to construct of my life Not a tavern but a temple I love you because you have done so much to make me happy. You have done it without a word, without a touch, without a sign You have done it by just being yourself Perhaps after all, that is what love means And that is why I love you.
Liberace: I have an eye for new and refreshing talent.
Scott Thorson: You have an eye for new and refreshing dick.
Scott Thorson: Being somebody's boyfriend, I didn't picture my life like this. I wanted to be a veterinarian.
Liberace: You want to help animals? Pick up the dog shit.
Liberace: What a story. It's got everything but a fire at the orphanage.
Liberace: All of a sudden we're sounding like a gay Lucy and Ricky. "Oh, Ricky, you wouldn't fuck me up the ass if you loved me!"
Scott Thorson: Why am I the Lucy?
Liberace: Because I'm the bandleader with the nightclub act.
Liberace: I want to be everything to you, Scott. I want to be father, brother, lover, best friend.
Liberace: I don't want to see you depressed. When you have a sad face, I get sad.
Scott Thorson: [angrily eyeballing Cary James] There you are, you cock-sucking tenor fuck.
Liberace: [after Scott passes out at an adult video store] I'm not ready for apologies, OK?
Scott Thorson: Apology? Fuck you! You are a well known star! Are you out of your mind, going to a place like that? I mean, what if someone would have recognised you, what if they had gone to the press?
Liberace: When a London paper said I was gay, I took them to court, and I won that law suit. They retracted the story and they paid for it.
Scott Thorson: Only because they didn't have a witness seeing you with a room full of dildos, with your dick hanging out of a glory hole. Are you out of your fucking mind?
