Lies and Deceit Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

George: Oh Chris, you're a liar to yourself! (2.275)

George believed Joe because Chris believed him. He feels doubly betrayed now that Chris is taking Ann without acknowledging his father's crime.

Quote #8

Mother: Why must you make believe you hate us? Is that another principle? – that you have to hate us? You don't hate us, George, I know you, you can't fool me, I diapered you. (2.381)

Kate is very sly, very manipulative. With her magnetic maternal power, she almost successfully coaxes George into forgetting about the whole thing.

Quote #9

Keller: There are certain men in the world who rather see everybody hung before they'll take blame. You understand me, George? (2.430)

We want to scream: you're talking about yourself! You're talking about yourself!
