Joe Fox:
[on Kathleen's missing date]
So who is he, I wonder? Certainly not, I gather, the world's greatest living expert on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. But somebody else entirely different. Will you be mean to him, too?
Kathleen Kelly:
No, I will not. Because the man who is coming here tonight is completely unlike you. The man who is coming here tonight is kind and funny, he has the most wonderful sense of humor...
Joe Fox:
But... he's not here.
Kathleen Kelly:
Well... if he's not here, he has a reason, because there is not a cruel or careless bone in his body. But I wouldn't expect you to understand anybody like that. You with your theme park, multi-level, homogenize-the-world mochaccino land. You've deluded yourself into thinking that you're some sort of benefactor, bringing books to the masses. But no one will ever remember you, Joe Fox. And maybe no one will remember me, either, but plenty of people remember my mother, and they think she was fine, and they think her store was something special. You are nothing but a suit!

Joe Fox:
[gets up, crestfallen]
That's my cue.

Certainly not
the world's greatest expert...
...on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
But somebody else entirely different.
Will you be mean to him too?

The man who is coming here
is completely unlike you.
The man who is coming here

...because there is not a cruel
or careless bone in his body.
I wouldn't expect you to understand
anybody like that.
You with your theme park, multi-level,
homogenize-the-world Mochaccinoland.
You've deluded yourself that you're a
benefactor bringing books to the masses.
But no one will ever
remember you, Joe Fox.
And maybe no one will remember me.
But plenty of people
remember my mother.
They think she was fine.
They think her store
was something special.
You are nothing but a suit.
That's my cue.
Good night.
So then the agent asks
for $600,000 and I said to her:
"If you think I'm even
going to talk to you...
...about paying that kind
of advance for an author...
...whose last book is being used
as a trivet all over the world...
