[pats his suitcase] Today.
[types on her computer] Oh, I'm sorry, but we don't have another flight for a least a month.
It's the busy season.
We've become bored with watching actors give us phony emotions. We are tired of pyrotechnics and special effects. While the world he inhabits is, in some respects, counterfeit, there's nothing fake about Truman himself. No scripts, no cue cards. It isn't always Shakespeare, but it's genuine. It's a life.
