1. "That's what the movies do. They don't entertain us, they don't send the message: 'We care.' They give us lines to say, they assign us parts: John Wayne, Theda Bara, Shirley Temple, take your pick."

2. "Well, possibly," I said, feeling my lips twitch again. "But maybe first you would tell us why you chose to manifest yourself in the form of Shirley Temple as last seen on the 'Good Ship Lollipop'?"The demon twirled around, its big pink sash fluttering as it smoothed down its dress and frilly little petticoat. "My grotesque form isn't making you sick with fright?"We both shook our heads, Noelle with a hand over her mouth to keep from laughing out loud.

3. "Do you practice the laugh, or is it a natural talent? Naw, I'm betting you practice." Jean-Claude's face twisted. I couldn't decide if he was trying not to laugh, or not to frown. Maybe both.

It was the sort of look a cat gives a small bird. Her voice lifted at the end of each word, a Shirley Temple affectation. "You are either very brave, or very stupid." "You really need at least one dimple to go with the laugh." Jean-Claude said softly, "I'm betting on stupid."
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

A theatre is not a blank page for editorial, it is not a soapbox or a Tannoy system: it is a conscience that wakes with what is happening in the space, and wakes further still in response to what people are making of it."
