The other side
From now on
P.T. Barnum: [from trailer] No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.
P.T. Barnum: Hyperbole isn’t the worst crime. Men suffer more from imagining too little than too much.
Charity Barnum: You don’t need everyone to love you, Phin. Just a few good people!
Lettie Lutz: [singing] When the sharpest words wanna cut me down/Gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out/This is brave, this is bruised, this is who I’m meant to be/This is me.
Phillip Carlyle: They come to see you… *Your* crazy ideas, *your* new acts. The unusual…
P.T. Barnum: Well then how about you show them a smile? That’d be unusual.
Anne Wheeler: [singing to Philip] You know I want you/It’s not a secret I try to hide/But I can’t have you/We’re bound to break and my hands are tied.
P.T. Barnum: [singing] Ladies and gents, this is the moment you’ve waited for/Been searching in the dark, your sweat soakin’ through the floor/And buried in your bones there’s an ache that you can’t ignore/Taking your breath, stealing your mind/And all that was real is left behind…
Queen Victoria: You’re even smaller than I imagined!
Tom Thumb: Well you’re not exactly reaching the top shelf yourself, sweetheart.
P.T. Barnum: Hey sweetie, who’s that young man over there?
Charity Barnum: Oh that’s Phillip Carlyle. A bit of a scandal, they say. His last play was a hit in London.
P.T. Barnum: Play? Pay good money to watch people stand around and talk for two hours and they call *me* a conman.
Lettie Lutz: You don’t get it, Barnum. It’s not about the money. Our own mothers were ashamed of us, they hid us our whole lives.
P.T. Barnum: Trust me, they don’t know it yet, but they’re going to love you.
Jenny Lind: It is hard to understand wealth and privilege when you’re born to it.
Anne Wheeler: Everyone’s got an act.
Lettie Lutz: Don’t start acting sensible now.
P.T. Barnum: My father was treated like dirt. I was treated like dirt. My children won’t be.
Phillip Carlyle: They’re small minded people.
P.T. Barnum: Nothing draws a crowd quite like a crow
