The Truman Show
written by Andrew Niccol

Christof: I wanna talk to him. [to Truman] Truman. You can speak. I can hear you.
Truman: Who are you?
Christof: I am the creator...of a television show that gives hope and joy and inspiration to millions.
Truman: And who am I?
Christof: You're the star.
Truman: Was nothing real?
Christof: You were real. That's what made you so good to watch. Listen to me, Truman. There's no more truth out there than there is in the world I created for you. Same lies. The same deceit. But in my world, you have nothing to fear. I know you better than you know yourself.
Truman: You never had a camera in my head!
Christof: You're afraid. That's why you can't leave. It's okay, Truman. I understand. I have been watching you your whole life. I was watching when you were born. I was watching when you took your first step. I watched you on your first day of school. Heh heh. The episode when you lost your first tooth, heh heh... You can't leave, Truman. You belong here...With me. Talk to me. Say something. Hell, say something, goddammit! You're on television! You're live to the whole world!
[Long pause]
Truman: In case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening and goodnight. Hahaha! Yeah!
[He exits]
