Text

Start:

MANNON--(avoiding her glance--insistently) Shut your eyes again. Listen and you'll know. (She shuts her eyes. He plods on with a note of desperation in his voice.) I thought about my life--lying awake nights--and about your life.

[...]

End:

You'll find I have changed, Christine. I'm sick of death! I want life! Maybe you could love me now! (in a note of final desperate pleading) I've got to make you love me!
