Come to work on time, know your lines and don't bump into the other actors.

The kids keep telling me I should try this new "Method Acting" but I'm too old, I'm too tired and I'm too talented to care.

Write anything you want about me. Make up something. Hell, I don't care.

I'm tired of pretending that everything's fine just so I can please everyone else.

All actors do everything possible to live up to live their part — to be the very image of the person they are portraying. But few actors, Father, have the opportunity of being confronted by that person. That makes the going even rougher, for as I play this part I will be thinking not only of you but of what you will think of me ... I'm so anxious to do a good job as Father Flanagan that it worries me, keeps me awake nights.
