Quotes and Lines
Norma Jeane: Daddy, you won’t ever write about me, will you?
The Playwright: Darling, of course not. Why would I do such a thing?
Norma Jeane: It’s what people do. Sometimes. Writers.
The Playwright: I’m not other people. You and I are not other people.
Norma Jeane: But where does dreaming end and madness begin? Anyway, isn’t all love based on delusion?
Norma Jeane: Marilyn doesn’t exist. When I come out of my dressing room, I’m Norma Jeane. I’m still her when the camera is rolling. Marilyn Monroe only exists on the screen.
Norma Jeane: Daddy, it’s so scary, how a scene with actual people just goes on and on.
