“MARIA. So. How is everyone? Can you hear me? I don't believe in microphones. Singing is first of all about projection. So is speech. People are forgetting how to listen. They want everything blasted at them. Listening takes concentration. If you can't hear me, it's your fault. You're not concentrating.”
Terrence McNally, Master Class

“Mary: What are you teaching Him at that public high school of yours, Mrs. McElroy?

Joshua: She's teaching Me that this town is the armpit of Western civilization.”
Terrence McNally, Corpus Christi

“Patricia: What they did was stupid and cruel and why I am going to write the president of the United States telling him that if there is any place in this country where nuclear bomb testing should be allowed, it's Corpus Christi, Texas.”
Terrence McNally, Corpus Christi
