[Uma das minhas cenas preferidas do filme...]
Richard: I got the prize for having Aids and going nuts and being brave about it (...) Do you think they would've given it to me if I were healthy?
Richard: "Oh Mrs. Dalloway... always giving parties to cover the silence."
Clarissa: This is a group of people who want to tell you your work is going to live.
Richard: Would you be angry if I died?
Clarissa: If you died?
Richard: Who is this party for?
Clarissa: What do you mean, who is it for? What are you asking? What are you trying to say?
Richard: I'm not trying to say anything. I'm saying I think I'm only staying alive to satisfy you.
Clarissa: So... That's what people do, they stay alive for each other. The doctors told you, you don't need to die. You can live like this for years.
Richard: Well, exactly!
Clarissa: I don't accept this! I don't accept what you say!
Richard: Oh, it is for you to decide, is it? How long have you been doing this? How many years coming to the apartment? What about your own life? What about Sally? Just wait till I die, then you'll have to think of yourself! How're gonna like that?
