Max Bialystock: How could this happen? I was so careful. I picked the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did I go right?

Franz Liebkind: Nobody ever said a bad word about Winston Churchill, did they? No! "Win with Winnie!" Churchill! With his cigars. With his brandy. And his rotten painting, rotten! Hitler, there was a painter. He could paint an entire apartment in one afternoon! Two coats!

Leo Bloom: [Searching for the sure-fire flop] ... Max, let's call it a night. It's two in the morning; I don't know what I'm reading anymore!

Max Bialystock: Read, read! We've got to find the worst play ever written!

[reads]

Max Bialystock: Ah. 'Gregor Samsa awoke one morning to discover that he had been transformed into a giant cockroach.'

[thinks]

Max Bialystock: It's too good.

Leo Bloom: [later] ... Wait a minute... wait a minute - I've read this play. I'm reading plays I read this morning! I can't go on! It's too much! Max, let's face it; we'll never find it!

Max Bialystock: [laughing] ... O-ho! We'll never find it, huh...?

[singing]

Max Bialystock: Rio, Rio by the sea-o, Bialystock and Leo, oh me-oh, oh my...

[holding a script]

Max Bialystock: Leo, smell it! See it? Touch it, touch it...

Leo Bloom: What is it?

Max Bialystock: What is it! We've struck gold. Not fool's gold, but real gold! The Mother Lode. The Mother of them all! Kiss it, kiss it!

[Leo does]

Leo Bloom: You found a flop?

Max Bialystock: A flop! That's putting it mildly. We've found a disaster, a catastrophe, an outrage! A guaranteed-to-close-in-one-night beauty. This is freedom from want forever. This is a house in the country. This is a Rolls Royce and a Bentley. This is wine, women, and song... and women.

Leo Bloom: Let's see it.

[reading]

Leo Bloom: ... 'Springtime For Hitler: A Gay Romp With Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden.' Wow...!

Max Bialystock: Wow! It's practically a love-letter to Hitler!

Leo Bloom: This won't run an WEEK!

Max Bialystock: A week! Are you kidding? This has got to close on page four!

The landlord: He who signs a lease must pay rent. That's the law.

Max Bialystock: You miserable wretch! How dare you take the last penny out of a poor man's pocket?

The landlord: I have to. I'm a landlord.

Leo Bloom: Let's assume, just for the moment, that you are a dishonest man.

Max Bialystock: Assume away.

Leo Bloom: It's very easy. You raise more money than you need.

Max Bialystock: What do you mean?

Leo Bloom: Well, you did it yourself, only you did it on a very small scale.

Max Bialystock: What did I do?

Leo Bloom: You raised $2,000 more than you needed to produce your last play.

Max Bialystock: So? What did it get me? *I'm wearing a CARDBOARD BELT*!

Leo Bloom: Well, that's where you made your mistake: you didn't go all the way. You see, if you were a truly bold criminal, you could've raised a million.

Max Bialystock: But the play cost me only $60,000 to produce!

Leo Bloom: And how long did it run?

Max Bialystock: One night.

Leo Bloom: You see? You see what I'm trying to tell you? You could've raised a million dollars, put on your $60,000 flop, and kept the rest.

Max Bialystock: But what if the play was a hit?

Leo Bloom: Well, then you'd go to jail. See, once the play's a hit, you have to pay off all the backers, and with so many backers, there could never be enough profits to go around. Get it?

Max Bialystock: Uh-huh. A-ha! So, in order for this scheme to work, we'd have to find a sure-fire flop!

Leo Bloom: What scheme?

Max Bialystock: What scheme! YOUR scheme, you bloody little genius!

Leo Bloom: I meant no scheme. I merely posed a little academic accounting theory; it was just a thought.

Max Bialystock: Bloom, worlds are turned on such thoughts!

Lorenzo St. DuBois: [singing] And I give a flower to the big fat cop / He takes his club and he beats me up / I give a flower to the garbage man / He stuffs my girl in the garbage can / And I give it to the landlord when the rent comes 'round / He throws it in the toilet and he flush it down / It goes into the sewer / With the yuck runnin' through 'er / And it runs into the river that we drink / Hey, world, YOU STINK! Ugh! Man it's later than you think! Girl you got just one more chance/ Come on baby while I dance!

[dances]

Lorenzo St. DuBois: [speaking] You don't think 'bout no little flowers! Oh no, all you think about is guns. If everybody in the world today had a flower instead of a gun, there would be no wars. There would be one big smell-in. Just the flowers...!

[rips his flowers in half]

Lorenzo St. DuBois: Hey, man, my flower... My flower. What'd you do to my flower, man? You hurt it, like everything else... Everything else... flowers.

[he sits down onstage and starts eating a banana, then sucks his thumb]

Leo Bloom: I would like to say something, your Honor. Not in my behalf, but in reference to my partner, Mr. Bialystock.

Judge: Proceed.

Leo Bloom: Your Honor, ladies and gentlemen of the jury - Max Bialystock is the most... selfish man I ever met in my life.

Max Bialystock: [whispering angrily] Don't help me!

Leo Bloom: Not only is he a liar, and a cheat, and a scoundrel and a crook, who has taken money from little old ladies, but he's also talked people into doing things, especially me, that they would never, in a thousand years have dreamed of doing! But, your Honor, as I understand it, the law was created to protect people from being wronged. Your Honor, whom has Max Bialystock wronged? I mean, who has he really hurt? Not me. Not me. I was... this man... No one ever called me 'Leo' before! I mean, I know it's not a big legal point, but even in kindergarten they used to call me 'Bloom!' I never sang a song before! I mean with someone else, I never sang a song with someone else before. This man... This man... this is a wonderful man! He made me what I am today. He did. And what of the dear ladies? What would their lives have been without Max Bialystock? Max Bialystock, who made them feel young, and attractive, and wanted again? That's all I have to say.

[the court applauds enthusiastically]

Judge: [banging] Order, order.

Max Bialystock: [standing] And may I humbly add, your Honor, that we've learned our lesson. And we'll never do it again.

Leo Bloom: But your honor, as I understand it, the law was created to protect people from being wronged. Your honor, Whom has Max Bialystock wronged? I mean, whom has he really hurt? Not me. Not me. I mean... This man... No one had ever called me Leo before. I know it's not a big legal point, but even in kindergarten they used to call me Bloom. I never sang a song before- I mean with someone else, I never sang a song with someone else before. This man... This man... This is a wonderful man. He made me what I am today. He did.
