Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
Simon Helberg: Cosmé McMoon
Cosmé McMoon : Mr. Bayfield, I am a serious pianist. I have ambition. I...
St Clair Bayfield : Oh, you think that I didn't have ambition? I was a good actor. But I was never going to be a great actor. It was very very hard to admit that to myself. But once I had, I felt free from the tyranny of ambition. I started to live. Is ours not a happy world, Cosmé? do we not have fun?
Florence Foster Jenkins : Now, I must warn you, I work very hard. I study an hour every day. Sometimes two. And my father didn't leave me as much money as everybody thinks, so I couldn't pay you more than a hundred and fifty.
Cosmé McMoon : A month?
Florence Foster Jenkins : A week. I'm not destitute!
St Clair Bayfield : Are you fond of sandwiches?
Cosmé McMoon : Yes.
St Clair Bayfield : Good, good. Madam Florence is inordinately fond of sandwiches. And potato salad as well. When we throw parties we make mountains of the stuff. It would serve you well to consume both with enthusiasm.
Cosmé McMoon : I shall.
Cosmé McMoon : Oh! I played Carnegie Hall. I... God darn it, Mr. Bayfield, Cosmé McMoon from San Antonio, Texas, played Carnegie Hall.
St Clair Bayfield : And he was brilliant. Utterly, utterly brilliant.
Cosmé McMoon : We did it.
St Clair Bayfield : Yes, I think we did.
[both laugh and raise their glasses]
St Clair Bayfield : Mud in your eye.
