Peregrine Devlin:
Lionheart! What the hell do you want here?
Edward Lionheart:
[picking up the best actor award]
This. My just reward. The whole world knows it is mine by right. But you deliberately withheld it from me. You deliberately humiliated me in front of the press, my public and my peers. It was the culmination of your determined denial of my genius!
Peregrine Devlin:
We denied you nothing...
Edward Lionheart:
For thirty years, the public has acknowledged that I was the master. And that, this year, my season of Shakespeare was the shining jewel in the crown of the immortal Bard.
Meredith Merridew:
[sotto voce, to Chloe Moon]
Quite insane!
Miss Chloe Moon:
[sotto voce, to Meredith Merridew]
He must be drunk.
Edward Lionheart:
But you, with your overweening malice, give the award to a twitching, mumbling boy who can barely grunt his way through an incomprehensible performance! No. No! It is mine!

Transcript:
Hm?
Lionheart, what the hell
do you want here?
This!
My just reward.
The whole world knows
that it is mine by right.
But you deliberately withheld it from me.
You deliberately humiliated me
before the press, my public and my peers.
It was the culmination of
your determined denial of my genius.
Weve denied you nothing.
For 30 years the public has acknowledged
that I was the master
and that this year my season of
Shakespeare was the shining jewel
in the crown of the immortal Bard.
- Quite insane.
- He must be drunk.
But you,
with your overweening malice,
give the award
to a twitching, mumbling boy
who can barely grunt his way through
an incomprehensible performance.
No, no.
It is mine!
Father.
Father, please come away.
You mustnt do this.
Youre only helping them
to hurt you more.
Edwina...
Oh, my God!
What have I done?
Father.
