Belle:
I was remembering the time we said we'd marry. Does it embarass you so much to talk about it?



Scott:
Ultimately, you'll see that I was wise not to talk about it.



Belle:
You needn't stop talking altogether, you know. I've been made love to before. I know a lot about love. But it wasn't the same with them as it was with you. With you I felt soft and sorry inside. No matter how much you rejected me, I could stand it. Not anymore.

John:
You were overpowered by the extravagance of sound, the sheer weight of volume. Your music was never meant to compete at that level. It was just never heard.



Scott:
Well, it will be heard! If volume is what they want, volume is what they'll get!



John:
What are you talking about?



Scott:
I'm going to write an opera.



John:
An opera?



Scott:
An opera in ragtime. A ragtime opera.



John:
Why?



Scott:
Because it is right!
