"What you do in the scene is not as important as what happens between you and the other person. And listening is what lets it happen. It's almost always the other person who causes you to say what you say next. You don't have to figure out how you'll say it. You have to listen so simply, so innocently, that the other person brings about a change in you that makes you say it and informs the way you say it. The difference between listening and pretending to listen is enormous. One is fluid the other is rigid. One alive, the other stuffed." – Alan Alda in Never Have Your Dog Stuffed
