Death of a Salesman
BEN: And good luck with your—what do you do?
BEN: Yes. Well… [He raises his hand in a farewell to all.]
WILLY: No, Ben. I don’t want you to think… [He takes Ben’s arm to show him.] It’s Brooklyn, I know, but we hunt too.
BEN: Really, now.
WILLY: Oh, sure, there’s snakes and rabbits and—that’s why I moved out here. Why, Biff can fell any one of these trees in no time! Boys! Go right over to where they’re building the apartment house and get some sand. We’re gonna rebuild the entire front stoop right now! Watch this, Ben! (Act 1)
WILLY [turning to Ben]: Business is bad, it’s murderous. But not for me, of course. (Act 1)
BIFF: I guess so. I know something about it and—
WILLY: He knows something about it! You know sporting goods better than Spalding for God’s sake! How much is he giving you?
BIFF: I don’t know, I didn’t even see him yet, but—
WILLY: Then what’re you talkin’ about?
BIFF [getting angry]: Well, all I said was I’m gonna see him, that’s all! (Act 1)
