Marcia Sindell: Paul, since you brought her up,. . .I have to ask you this or I’ll be drummed out of the agents’ union. How would you feel about a non-fiction book, about what went on in that house?
Paul Sheldon: Gee, Marcia, if I didn’t know you better, I’d think you were suggesting I dredge up the worst horror of my life just so we can make a few bucks.
Marcia Sindell: I thought you were over it.
Paul Sheldon: I don’t know if anyone could totally get over something like that. It’s weird. Even though I know she’s dead, I still think about her once in a while.
Waitress: Excuse me. I don’t mean to bother you, but are you Paul Sheldon?
Paul Sheldon: Yes.
Waitress: I just wanna tell you, I’m your number one fan.
Paul Sheldon: That’s very sweet of you.
Johnny Smith: I keep thinking about a line from a book, it’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” the last thing I gave my class to read before. . .the accident. Ichabod Crane disappears. . .the line goes: “As he was a bachelor, and in nobody’s debt, nobody troubled their head about him anymore.”
Sarah Bracknell: Is that what you’re afraid of?
Johnny Smith: It’s what I want.
