Mark
I don't suppose you'd like to see Maureen's
show in the lot tonight? Or come to dinner?

Roger
Zoom in on my empty wallet.

Mark
Touche. Take your AZT.
Close on Roger
His girlfriend April
Left a note saying "We've got AIDS"
Before slitting her wrists in the bathroom
I'll check up on you later. Change your mind. You have
to get out of the house.

    General CommentI was really disappointed to find out the tune-ups and voicemails weren't in the movie, too! When I first saw RENT on Broadway, the line that jumped out at me was:

    His girlfriend April
    Left a note saying "We've got AIDS"
    Before slitting her wrists in the bathroom

    For some reason it hit me really hard at the time. Even to this day, it remains the most memorable line from RENT.

    Though I have to admit, I was a bit confused about the plot at first. It wasn't until I saw the movie that I filled in a couple remaining blanks. The musical is so fast-paced and energetic I didn't even have time to soak in the plot, haha. But watching it a second time reminded me of just how awesome it is. I love it.
