[on Bob Fosse] Fosse, I think, came to a high point in his life, with an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy, and asked himself, “Do they think I’m really that good? They don’t know I’m really a sham, a hoax, a phony, a lousy human being, not much of a friend to anybody and a flop… they don’t know I’m covered with flop sweat.” That’s an expression Bob uses a lot — flop sweat
