I have given Truman the chance to lead a normal life. The world, the place you live in, is the sick place.
Good morning, and in case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!
He was born in front of a live audience.
Was anything real?
You were real. That's what made you so good to watch…
We're tired of pyrotechnics and special effects.
While the world he inhabits… is in some respects, counterfeit. There's nothing fake about Truman himself.
No scripts; no cue cards. It isn't always Shakespeare, but it's genuine. It's a life.
When it's like everything's slipping away… You don't want to believe it, so you look for answers somewhere else, but… well… the point is, I would gladly step in front of traffic for you.
TRUMAN:Who are you?
CHRISTOF:I am the creatorof a television show that gives hope and joy and inspiration to millions.
TRUMAN:And who am I?
CHRISTOF: You're the star.
TRUMAN:Was nothing real?
CHRISTOF:YOU were real. That's what made you so good to watch. Listen to me, Truman. There's no more truth out there than there is in the world I created for you. Same lies. The same deceit. But in my world, you have nothing to fear. I know you better than you know yourself.
TRUMAN:You never had a camera in my head!
CHRISTOF:You're afraid. That's why you can't leave. It's okay, Truman. I understand. I have been watching you your whole life. I was watching when you were born. I was watching when you took your first step. I watched you on your first day of school. heh heh. The episode when you lost your first tooth. heh heh heh. You can't leave, Truman. You belong here…With me. Talk to me. Say something. 'ell, say something, goddamnit! You're on television! You're live to the whole world!
TRUMAN:In case I don't see ya', good afternoon, good evening and goodnight. Hahaha! Yeah!
