Ellsworth Toohey:
There's the building that should have been yours. There are buildings going up all over the city which are great chances refused and given to incompetent fools. You're walking the streets while they're doing the work that you love but cannot obtain. This city is closed to you. It is I who have done it! Don't you want to know my motive?



Howard Roark:
No!



Ellsworth Toohey:
I'm fighting you and shall fight you in every way I can.



Howard Roark:
You're free to do what you please!



Ellsworth Toohey:
Mr. Roark, we’re alone here. Why don't you tell me what you think of me in any words you wish.



Howard Roark:
But I don't think of you!


[Roark walks away and Toohey's head slumps down]
