Harold Pinter, “The Homecoming”

TEDDY: It’s nothing to do with question of intelligence. It’s a way of being able to look at the world. It’s a question of how far you can operate on things and not in things. I mean it’s a question of your capacity to ally the two, to relate the two, to balance the two. To see, to be able to see! I’m the one who can see. That’s why I can write my critical works. Might do you good…have a look at them…see how certain people can view…things…how certain people can maintain…intellectual equilibrium. Intellectual equilibrium. You’re just objects. You just…move about. I can observe it. I can see what you do. It’s the same as I do. But you’re lost in it. You won’t get me being…I won’t be lost in it.

  1. A favorite. Saw it a few times most recently with Ian McShane and Micheal McKean at the Court. Also In London circa 2002. But the former blew it out of the water. Pinter!
