"The movie will begin in five moments," the mindless voice announced. All those unseated will await the next show. We filed slowly, languidly into the hall. The auditorium was vast and silent. As we seated and were darkened, the voice continued, "The program for this evening is not new. You've seen this entertainment through and through. You've seen your birth, your life and death. You might recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died? Enough to base a movie on?"


Andy Warhol: [handing Jim a golden telephone] Edie gave this to me and said mmmmm, I could talk to God with this. But I don't really have anything to say. So... mmmm now you can talk to God.

Gloria Stavers: [to Jim] You control the audience, like dogs, manipulate them Jim, one picture can control a million people, be anything you want -- growl at them, be ugly, be frightened, be selfish. Be man, woman, whild, animal. Live, die, return again. Anything you want. Everything is permitted. Go on look at yourself, fall in love with yourself. You're your own audience now Jim. They want you. Worship and love and adore you...Jim Morrison, the god of Rock and ****...

Patricia Kennealy: [to Jim] Come on rock god, **** me, **** me good.

Ray Manzarek: [to Jim] Things are about to explode man. You can feel it in the air. Vietnam's right out there. Sides are being chosen. People wanna fight or ****, love or kill, everything's gonna flame. The planet's screaming for change, Morrison. Make the myths man!

Tom Baker: [to Jim] You're bored, you're not free. You tested all the limits, fame, ****ing, money, -- whatcha gonna do now Jimbo? When the music's over, when you're too fat and ugly to get on a stage, whatcha gonna do for act three -- puke on Heaven's door?

Ed Sullivan: Look, you boys don't forget to smile now. There's no reason to be so sullen out there...
Jim: Uh well, we're kind of a sullen group, Ed.

Jerry: What shit, "day destroys the night", "crawl back in your brain", "go insane". What do people wanna pay money to hear that shit?
Jim: The greater the suffering, the more terrible the events, the greater the pleasure Jerry. They want it, it's catharsis. Like the ancient Greeks.
Jerry: We're in Los Angeles, punk, how would you know? They like your pants, they're not listenin' to you, what the hell they see in you I...
Jim: But they understand Jerry. All our real desires are unconscious and unseen.
Jerry: You're the weirdest ****in' guy I ever...
Jim: You love us?
Jerry: I love ya. You got two more shows to do.

Jim: [entering through the window] Hi.
Pam: Wow! Hi...You have a problem with doors?
Jim: Waste of time. I followed you... from the beach...
Pam: Wow! You followed me? Why?
Jim: 'Cause... you're the one. [He kisses her]
Pam: Wow... neat.

Jim: I don't mind dying in a plane crash, a smile on my face.
Pam: As compared to what?
Jim: I just don't want to go out slow -- brain tumor, botulism. I want to feel what it's like, cause death is only going to happen to you once.

Jim: Jesus Ray, every girl out there wanted to **** me, I could feel it for the first time!
Ray: Right on stud. But you better watch out for the guys.

Jim: What turns you on?
Pam: I don't know. Experience. Freedom. Love... Now. Peyote's like love. When it's given it's blessed. When it's sold it's damned. I like peyote. I like acid, it's easier to get. I like the spiritual voyage. The first time I did acid I saw God. I did. I had a friend who was Christ. And he was Judas too. I suddenly knew the secret of everything -- that we're all one, the universe is one. And that everything is beautiful.
Jim: Is it? I don't know. I think you're alive by confronting death -- by experiencing pain.
Pam: I think you're alive by recognizing beauty -- seeing truth because when you discover truth you discover what love is... we're all saying the same thing. It's "love me and I'll love you."
Jim: It's only through death that you know life. Jesus, medicine men heal people by sacrificing their own life.
Pam: Do you love Death?
Jim: I think life hurts a lot more than death. When you die the pain is over.

John: I think I'm ****ed up. I'm not thinking right.
Jim: You're ****ed up John. Go with it, confusion is the sound of creation.
John: You should see your eyes right now, you're death. Look at your eyes -- you're crazy man, you look crazy. You scare me.
Jim: No no no John John. God is crazy too. God is part insane as well as sane. Not in control all the time. Dionysus was the God of the wine. He made ecstasy but he also made madness. Madness is all right. That's what you want, isn't it, isn't it?

Journalist: What are your songs about Mr. Morrison?
Jim: Uh, love death travel... revolt. We all write the songs, we're interested in anything about disorder, chaos, especially activity which seems to have no meaning...Like This. I think when you make peace with authority, you become authority.
Journalist: Can you define that a little more?
Jim: Yeah you can call us erotic politicians I guess.

Pam: [about Patricia] You actually put your dick in this woman Jim?
Jim: Well I... sometimes yeah.
