Walter Shakespeare: Perhaps if we promote the theater in more innovative ways, people will come to our productions.

Walter Shakespeare: Yes, sir.
Edwin Blackgaard: I'd rather die.
Walter Shakespeare: Fair enough, sir. I'll just make us some tea while we wait for the bank to repossess all our furniture.
