Quote from Moira

Moira: Look what you've done! Look at it! Lying there, lifeless. Yet, in its eyes, I see darkness.
David: It's just a crow, Mrs. Mandrake.
Moira: Dr. Mandrake. And you must be kidding yourself if you think more are not coming. They always do. They're watching you, Gareth. The crows have eyes. And you better not look them in it.
David: Uh, it-it's just a flock of crows, Dr. Mandrake. What's the worst that can happen?
David: Oh, you'll see!
Moira: And it's not a flock, my dear boy. It's a murder. Yes, I said murder.


Quote from Moira

Moira: Rarely is the material of quality, the challenge is to lift it off the page. And I think part of the problem, David, is that I'm getting nothing from you. It's like working off a corpse.
David: I actually think you do play off a corpse in the next scene, and if I'm being perfectly honest, this is all playing a bit big.
Moira: Hmph! Big.
David: Yeah.
Moira: And would that be a note? A note, coming from my son?! Who I carried for almost a full seven months, to an actress who has been short-listed for more than seven major made for television motion pictures? The script is nothing more than a jumping off point.

Quote from Moira

Jocelyn and Twyla: From one lover to another Uh huh Islands in the stream
Moira: [singing in another language]
Jocelyn and Twyla: That is what we are
Moira: K-H-E-O-K!
Jocelyn and Twyla: No one in between How can we be wrong
Moira: [singing in another language]
Jocelyn and Twyla: Sail away with me to another world
Moira: [singing loudly in another language]
Jocelyn and Twyla: We'll be lying with each other, uh huh
Moira: Uh huh.

Quote from Johnny

Stevie: Let me guess, this has something to do with the accountants conference?
Johnny: Yes. [Stevie makes a crude gesture again] No, no, you're mistaken. Stevie, she would've disclosed that information if that were the case!
Stevie: Really?
Johnny: No. But look, if it makes you feel any better, we'll go and check it out. But when it turns out I'm right, and it's just a group of business professionals decompressing for a few hours during a long day at a regional accountants' conference, then I expect a full apology.
Stevie: You don't hear it, when you say it like that?
Johnny: I hear it a bit.

Quote from David

David: Sorry, um, this is just one big rip off of The Birds.
Moira: This is about crows! It's much more specific!
David: And the dialogue. "Look, they've taken Clara!" "Where are they carrying her to, Clara?" Are there two Claras?!
Moira: It's a common name.

Quote from Moira

David: Hi. Um, your agent called. Do you have any safety pins?
Moira: My agent? Which one?
David: I think the assistant said her name was Jennifer?
Moira: Ginnifer? Or Jennifer with a "G?" There's more than one!
David: They sent you an email.
Moira: Is it a job?
David: I don't know, do I look like Ginnifer?!
Moira: David, your inability to retain information that doesn't directly pertain to you might actually require medical attention!

Quote from Moira

Moira: What are the terms?
David: Ooh, it's filming in Bosnia! Um, in a city that I don't- I don't know the name of the city. I can't pronounce it. A lot of consonants.
Moira: I did not know that. But I've always loved shooting on location, it allows one to focus on the work.
David: Hmm, it's being released in Bosnia, Croatia, Herzegovina.
Moira: Before opening internationally!
David: You have to fly yourself there?
Moira: Mmm, that doesn't sound right.
David: Ooh, accommodation is covered.
Moira: Thank God!
David: You'll be put up with a local family.
Moira: Close to the set?
David: They're paying you scale. But it'll be in Baltic currency, do you want me to keep going?
Moira: No, read to yourself.
David: There's a death waiver?!
Moira: Oh. You can close the computer.
David: Yeah, but we haven't even gotten to the section on bird safety yet!

Quote from Moira

Moira: Are they sending a script? David there's nothing here but "hot singles in my area." No, wait, wait. David, it's an audition for a feature film!
David: Well, that sounds promising.
Moira: "Attractive and spunky forty-something female." In my sleep! "Respected ornithologist Dr. Clara Mandrake," in the psychological thriller, "The Crows Have Eyes II." It's a sequel, that's good. It must mean the first one was a big success.
David: I've never heard of it.
Moira: Well, they want me to put myself on tape. David, do you still have that camera? Go get it, please! And a drop cloth. And a ring light.
David: I could probably prop my phone against some books.
Moira: [exhales] And so it begins again.

Quote from Moira

Moira: From what I understand it's between me, and one other actress.
Twyla: Congratulations, Mrs. Rose! Who's the other actress?
Moira: Well, they haven't found her yet. But if all goes according to plan, [knocks on wood] they'll be flying me out for a screen test.

Quote from Stevie

Johnny: Well, I gave her a discount, because she's only using the rooms during the day.
Stevie: So you're renting our rooms by the hour?!
Johnny: We haven't had a guest in four days!
Stevie: What are they using the rooms for?
Johnny: Well, she didn't say, Just conducting her business out of them.
Stevie: Right, and you know what that means. [makes a crude gesture]
