Lenny:
It's funny, because I'd have thought that in the United States of America, I mean with the sun and all that, the open spaces, on the old campus, in your position, lecturing, in the centre of all the intellectual life out there, on the old campus, all the social whirl, all the stimulation of it all, all your kids and all that, to have fun with, down by the pool, the Greyhound buses and all that, tons of iced water, all the comfort of those Bermuda shorts and all that, on the old campus, no time of the day or night you can't get a cup of coffee or a Dutch gin, I'd have thought you'd have grown more forthcoming, not less. Because I want you to know that you set a standard for us, Teddy. Your family looks up to you, boy, and you know what it does? It does its best to follow the example you set. Because you're a great source of pride to us. That's why we were so glad to see you come back, to welcome you back to your birthplace. That's why.

Max, father of Lenny, Teddy, and Joey:
Look what I'm lumbered with. One cast-iron bunch of crap after another. One flow of stinking pus after another.

Teddy:
You wouldn't understand my works. You wouldn't have the faintest idea of what they were about. You wouldn't appreciate the points of reference. You're way behind. All of you. There's no point in my sending you my works. You'd be lost. It's nothing to do with the question of intelligence. It's a way of being able to look at the world. It's a question of how far you can operate on things and not in things. I mean it's a question of your capacity to ally the two, to relate the two, to balance the two. To see, to be able to *see*! I'm the one who can see. That's why I can write my critical works. Might do you good... have a look at them... see how certain people can view... things... how certain people can maintain... intellectual equilibrium. Intellectual equilibrium. You're just objects. You just... move about. I can observe it. I can see what you do. It's the same as I do. But you're lost in it. You won't get me being... I won't be lost in it.

Max, father of Lenny, Teddy, and Joey:
I mean, you needn't tell them she's your wife.



Lenny:
No, we'd call her something else. Dolores, or something.



Max, father of Lenny, Teddy, and Joey:
Or Spanish Jacky.



Lenny:
No, you've got to be reserved about it, Dad. We could call her something nice... like Cynthia... or Gillian.

Max, father of Lenny, Teddy, and Joey:
Mind you, she wasn't such a bad woman. Even though it made me sick just to look at her rotten stinking face, she wasn't such a bad bitch. I gave her the best bleeding years of my life, anyway.



Lenny:
Plug it, will you, you stupid sod, I'm trying to read the paper.



Max, father of Lenny, Teddy, and Joey:
Listen! I'll chop your spine off, you talk to me like that! You understand? Talking to your lousy filthy father like that!



Lenny:
You know what, you're getting demented.
