Peggy Guggenheim: I have just climbed up and down five flights of stairs. I'm Peggy Guggenheim...
Lee Krasner: We're sorry.
Peggy Guggenheim: [to Jackson Pollock] - My God and you're drunk.
Jackson Pollock: No.
Lee Krasner: No.
Clem Greenberg: What you're doing is the most original and vigorous art in the country.
Jackson Pollock: We're broke!
Clem Greenberg: Yeah, keep at it.
Jackson Pollock: Keeping at it... don't tell me to keep at it!
Lee Krasner:[ seeing the first painting of his breakthrough] You've done it, Pollock. You've cracked it wide open.
Peggy Guggenheim:[ before she and Pollock want to make love] I think you don't' realise how hard I worked to get people interested in your work.
Jackson Pollock: [ referring to Lee] I'm dead without her.
Ruth Kligman: But I'm the one who loves you, Jackson.
Jackson Pollock: About his critics - If people would just look at the paintings, I don't think they would have any trouble enjoying them. It's like looking at a bed of flowers, you don't tear your hair out over what it means.
