Calvero[edit]

  • What do you want meaning for? Life is a desire, not a meaning. Desire is the theme of all life!
  • There's something about working the streets I like. It's the tramp in me I suppose.
  • That's all any of us are: amateurs. We don't live long enough to be anything else.
  • Life can be wonderful if you're not afraid of it.

Calvero's partner[edit]

  • If one more person tells me this is just like old times, I swear I'll jump out the window!

Dialogue[edit]

Terry: [after attempting suicide] I'm sorry.
Calvero: You should be. A young girl like you wanting to throw your life away. Heh! When you are my age you want to hang onto it.

Terry: Worms can't smile!
Calvero: Oh, how would you know, have you ever appealed to their sense of humour?

Terry: So few of us have the ability to really feel.
Calvero: Or the opportunity.

Calvero: My home is the theater.
Terry: I thought you hated the theater.
Calvero: I also hate the sight of blood, but it's in my veins.
