Jerry Rand: You came into this marriage with nothing.
Eileen Rand: Except love.
Jerry Rand: Bringing up love at a divorce proceeding is childish.
Eileen Rand: Screwing every blonde that opens her legs for you is also childish. I guess that makes both of us children.
Derek Wills: Eileen, be real. For me to audition
Derek Wills: , Marilyn herself would have to pop out of that envelope and do me right here.
Julia Houston: [on the phone with Tom] Oh, you say that, Tom, but then you get all impatient. If we don't cut
Julia Houston: now, I'm gonna have to listen to you whine for weeks. Then we should do it because *I* wanna do it.
Julia Houston: I wanna do it tomorrow.
Julia Houston: I will call Ivy. Bye.
[hangs up, to Frank]
Julia Houston: He *does* whine. I love him but... he whines.
Tom Levitt: I have a new assistant and he made me macaroni and cheese.
Julia Houston: I'm happy for you.
Tom Levitt: I'm happy for me, too.
[a video clip of Ivy Lynn recording a demo for "Marilyn: The Musical" goes viral]
Frank Houston: Wow, it's everywhere.
Julia Houston: It's idiotic theater blogs. I hate everyone who writes theater blogs!
Frank Houston: Okay, some of it is...
Julia Houston: Okay, I don't wanna know!
Julia Houston: My God, this sucks! It gets out too fast! And then everyone just rushes to judgement before we even *have* a first draft! Reidel! Oh! Reidel started going after "Spider-Man" before they even started previews! He was already attacking everyone before they even started maiming people!
Julia Houston: Yeah, I know, I know. You didn't want me to do it. And you know? Fine, you were right. It's just a complete waste of time.
Frank Houston: Reidel picked it up.
Julia Houston: Of course he did! Little creep! Tom called him a Napoleonic Nazi. So right.
[Frank laughs again, Julia giggles]
Julia Houston: "Napoleonic Nazi", it's good.
Frank Houston: No. It's just, uh, Reidel loves "Marilyn". He's a huge fan of you and Tom, thinks "Heaven on Earth" is the best musical on Broadway in spite of its hideous title. Thinks the number online is a smash.
[Julia climbs onto the bed next to Frank and looks at the article]
Julia Houston: Y'know, he's much smarter than people give him credit for. Everyone gets so mad at him, but he tells the truth.
