(Title Card) "The glamour of limelight, from which age must pass as youth enters. A story of a ballerina and a clown..."
Calvero: "This isn't the ideal spot for convalescing, but you're welcome to it. That is, uh, if you can put up with being 'Mrs. Calvero'. Of course, in name only." Terry: "It won't inconvenience you?" Calvero: "Not at all! I've had five wives already; one more or less makes no difference to me."
Calvero: "...In the few years I have left, I must have truth! Truth! ...It's all I have left. ...Truth. That's all I want. But, if possible, a little dignity."
