John Boyd West: Red West
Elvis Presley : Listen to this. This is how God works.
Elvis Presley : I may be expressing myself through these beautiful symphonies of light, color, and language that manifests itself as music. But they will hail you as one of the great ones of the day, and think of you as a wonderful preacher, and teacher.
Red West : Huh?
Elvis Presley : Don't you get it? Ever since Mamma died I've been asking myself these questions. Why'd God take her away from me? Why am I not happy when he gave me all this success and fame? Why, out of all the millions, did he pick me to be Elvis Presley?
Lamar Fike : Don't we make you happy?
Elvis Presley : No, Lamar, you don't. None of this does. Oh, you guys have to read these books.
Gene Smith : Hey, if it ain't got Batman in it, it ain't in my library.
Red West : Or naked women.
Elvis Presley : To hell with the lot of you.
