I felt it. I'm perfect. I was perfect.
That was me seducing you. It needs to be the other way around.
Perfection is not just about control. It is also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience. Transcendence. Very few have it in them.
I can dance the black swan, too.
Really? In 4 years every time you dance I see you obsessed getting each and every move perfectly right but I never see you lose yourself. Ever! All that discipline for what?
Perfection is not just about control. It's also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience. Transcendence! Very few have it in them.
Beth! I'm so sorry to hear you're leaving the company.
What did you do to get this role? [about Thomas] He always said you were such a frigid little girl. What did you do to change his mind? Did you suck his cock?
Has he tried anything with you? He has a reputation. I have a right to be concerned, Nina. You've been staying late so many nights rehearsing. I hope he isn't taking advantage.
Good. I just don't want you to make the same mistake I did.
Not like that. I just mean as far as my career was concerned.
You could be brilliant, but you're a coward.
I can't believe he calls her that. It's so gross.
I bet he'll be calling you little princess any day now.
Sure he will. You just got to let him lick your pussy.
You put something in my drink.
But we what, Nina? [pauses] Wait, did you have some sort of lezzy wet dream about me?
Lily! You made her my alternate?
Well there's always an alternate. Lily is the best choice.
Every dancer in the world wants your role.
No, this is different. She's after me. She's trying to replace me!
Have you announced it? [pauses] After Beth do you really need another controversy? I'm here, Thomas. I'm doing it.
The only person standing in your way is you. It's time to let her go. Lose yourself.
