Salieri (addressing a crucifix): "From now on we are enemies, You and I. Because You choose for Your instrument a boastful, lustful, smutty, infantile boy and give me for reward only the ability to recognize the incarnation. Because You are unjust, unfair, unkind, I will block You, I swear it. I will hinder and harm Your creature on earth as far as I am able."
(addressing the complaints about the "improper" libretto for "Figaro") Mozart: "Come on now, be honest! Which one of you wouldn't rather listen to his hairdresser than Hercules? Or Horatius, or Orpheus... people so lofty they sound as if they shit marble!"
Mozart: " "Confutatis maledictis" - when the wicked are confounded. "Flammis Acribus Adictis." How would you translate that?" Salieri: "Consigned to flames of woe." Mozart: "Do you believe in it?" Salieri: "What?" Mozart: "A fire which never dies, burning you forever?" Salieri: "Oh yes."
Salieri: Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
Emanuel Schikaneder: Look, I asked you if we could start rehearsals next week and you said yes.
Mozart: Well, we can.
Emanuel Schikaneder: So let me see it. Where is it?
Mozart: Here. It's all right here in my noodle. The rest is just scribbling. Scribbling and bibbling, bibbling and scribbling.
