|INTERVIEWER: Uh...let's go to another call with…
CHRISTOF: No. No, no, no, no, no. It--I--It's fine, Mike. I love to reminisce with former members of the cast. Sylvia, as you announced so melodramatically to the world...do you think because you batted your eyes at Truman once, flirted with him, stole a few minutes of air time with him to thrust yourself and your politics into the limelight, that you know him, that you know what's right for him? You really think you're in a position to judge him?
SYLVIA: What right do you have to take a baby an-an-and turn his life into some kind of mockery? Don't you ever feel guilty?
CHRISTOF: I have given Truman a chance to lead a normal life. The world. The place you live in...is the sick place. Seahaven is the way the world should be.
SYLVIA: He's not a performer, he's a prisoner. Look at him. Look at what you've done to him.
CHRISTOF: He could leave at any time. If his was more than just a vague ambition, if he was absolutely determined to discover the truth, there's no way we could prevent him. I think what distresses you, really, caller, is that ultimately, Truman prefers his "cell," as you call it.
SYLVIA: That's where you're wrong. You're so wrong. And he'll prove you wrong.
INTERVIEWER: Well, aside from uh…heated comments from a very vocal minority, it's been an overwhelmingly positive experience.
CHRISTOF: Yes, for Truman and for the viewing public.
INTERVIEWER: Well, Christof, I can't thank you enough for giving so generously your time tonight. I think it's safe to say that now that this crisis is behind us and that Truman is back to his old self we can look forward to some exciting new developments.
CHRISTOF: Well, Mike, the big news is that Meryl will be leaving Truman in an upcoming episode, and a new romantic interest will be introduced.
