"Why do you want to have a baby with me? You can't stand me!" (Truman) "That's not true! ... Why don't you let me fix you some of this Mococoa drink, all natural cocoa beans from the upper slopes of Mount Nicaragua, no artificial sweeteners?" (Meryl) "What the hell are you talking about?!?

"I've been your best friend since we were seven years old Truman . . . You're the closest thing I ever had to a brother. . . But the point is, I'd gladly walk in front of traffic for you, Truman. And the last thing I'd ever do is lie to you." (Marlon)
"One point seven billion were there for his birth. 220 countries tuned in for his first step. The world stood still for that stolen kiss. And as he grew so did technology.

(Christof) "Most brilliant! Truman's been terrified of the water ever since." (interviewer)
"Was nothing real?" (Truman) "You were real. That's what made you so good to watch. There is no more truth out there than there is in the world I created for you. The same lies, the same deceit. But in my world, you have nothing to fear." (Christof)
"Everything on the show is for sale. The actor's wardrobe, food products, to the very homes they live in." (Christof) "And of course all of it available in the Truman catalogue." (interviewer)

Christof: he was born in front of a live audience.
Christof: Truman, I’ve watched you your whole life. I saw you taking your first step, your first word, your first kiss. I know you better than you know yourself. You are not going to walk out that door.

Meryl: I thought we were going to try for a baby. Isn’t that enough of an adventure.
