Nicholas Van Orton Edit
You don't know anything about society, Marie; you don't have the satisfaction of avoiding it.
Did I have a choice? Did I have a choice?
I'm being toyed with by a bunch of depraved children.
I don't care about the money. I'm pulling back the curtain. I want to meet the wizard.
And you really believe that just because you publish children's books, people are going to care about my reputation? You can have pictures of me wearing nipple rings, butt-fucking Captain Kangaroo. The only thing they care about is the stock and whether that stock is up or down!
Conrad Van Orton Edit
They won't leave me alone! I'm a goddam human piñata!
They fuck you and fuck you and fuck you, and just when you think it's over, that's when the real fucking begins!

Discovering the object of the game
is the object of the game. Jim Feingold Edit
The game is tailored specifically to each participant. Think of it as a great vacation, except you don't go to it, it comes to you.
We're like an experiential Book-of-the-Month Club.
Conrad: This is for you.
Nicholas: You shouldn't have.
Conrad: What do you get for the man who has…everything?
Nicholas: [reading the card] "Consumer Recreation Services." Well, I do have golf clubs.
Conrad: Call that number.
Conrad: Make your life... fun.
Conrad: You know what that is... uh, you've seen other people have it.
Nicholas: No, what is this? What are you... selling?
Jim Feingold: Oh. It's a game.
Daniel Schorr: [on TV] There's a tiny camera looking at you right now.
Nicholas: That's impossible.
Daniel Schorr: You're right, impossible. You're having a conversation with your television.
Nicholas: So, you've played recently?
New Member Ted: Oh, about a year ago. I was working in Los Angeles.
Nicholas: I hear the London office is very good, too. It just sounds like a lot of fantasy, role-playing nonsense.
New Member Ted: [leans in] You wanna know what it is? What it's all about?
[Nicholas leans closer]
New Member Ted: John 9:25.
Nicholas: I... haven't been to Sunday school in a long time.
New Member Ted: 'Whereas once I was blind, now I can see.' [rises] Good night, Nicholas. Best of luck.
Nicholas: Good night.
[Nicholas loses a shoe when climbing a fire-escape ladder.]
Nicholas: There goes a thousand dollars.
Christine: Your shoes cost a thousand dollars?
Nicholas: That one did.
Nicholas: [In the stopped elevator] I'll give you a boost.
Christine: You first.
Nicholas: This isn't an attempt to be gallant. If I don't lift you, how are you going to get there?
Christine: You pull me up.
Nicholas: It's much easier this way. Come on, step up...
Christine: I'm not wearing underwear. Okay? There, I said it. Satisfied?
Nicholas: [Looks at her skirt] Oh. Fine.
New Member Ted: This was the best one ever!
Jim Feingold: [shakes Nicholas's hand] You know, thank God you jumped, because if you didn't, I was supposed to throw you off!
There are no rules in The Game.
The object of the game is to discover the object of.... The Game
What do you get for the man who has everything?
You don't play it, it plays you
John 9:25: "I was blind, but now I see."
