The noblest art is that of making others happy.

– P. T. Barnum

Phillip Carlyle: I own 10% of the show. Knowing who I was working for… I had the good sense to take my cut weekly.

P. T. Barnum: Phillip, I can’t let you gamble it on me. I…

Anne Wheeler: Sure you can.

Lettie Lutz: Don’t turn sensible on us now.

Phillip Carlyle: Partners. 50-50.

P. T. Barnum: Partners.

Phillip Carlyle: You know, Barnum… when I first met you… I had an inheritance, acclaim, an invitation to every party in town. And now, thanks to you, all that’s gone. All that’s left is friendship, love, and work that I adore. You brought joy into my life.

Lettie Lutz: Into all our lives.

P. T. Barnum: I brought hardship on you and our family. You warned me… and I wouldn’t listen. I just… I wanted to be more than I was.

Charity Barnum: I never wanted anything but the man I fell in love with.

P. T. Barnum:

I drank champagne with kings and queens

The politicians praised my name

But those are someone else’s dreams

The pitfalls of the man I became

For years and years

I chased their cheers

The crazy speed of always needing more

But when I stop

And see you here

I remember who all this was for

P. T. Barnum:

A man learns who is there for him

When the glitter fades and the walls won’t hold

‘Cause from then, rubble

What remains

Can only be what’s true

P. T. Barnum: Folks, if you’ve come to get paid, the money is gone. All of it. Nothing left to give you.

Lettie Lutz: Shut up, Barnum. You just don’t get it. Our own mothers were ashamed of us. Hid us our whole lives. Then you pull us out of the shadows. And now you’re giving up on us, too. Maybe you are a fraud. Maybe it was just about making a buck. But you gave us a real family.

W. D. Wheeler: And the circus… that was our home. We want our home back.

Jenny Lind: When you’re careless with other people, Mr. Barnum… you bring ruin upon yourself.

P. T. Barnum: I have risked everything.

Jenny Lind: Well, so did I. And it seems we both lost.

P. T. Barnum: You don’t understand. How could you? My father was treated like dirt. I was treated like dirt, and my children will not be.

Charity Barnum: You don’t need everyone to love you, Phin. Just a few good people.

Phillip’s Father: Phillip, have you no shame? Associating yourself with that Barnum business is one thing… but parading around with the help?

(Anne runs away)

Phillip Carlyle: How dare you speak to her like that?

Phillip’s Mother: You forget your place, Phillip.

Phillip Carlyle: My place? Mother, if this is my place, then I don’t want any part of it.
