台词选段

【说唱《游乐园》】

欢乐世界 / 我们一起游戏/ 疯狂地嬉戏

随机选中一个闪烁靶心/ 箭一脱手/ 只能继续前进/ 飞速地前进

吞没/ 将我吞没/ 欢呼扑向我/ 我爱这堕落

远去/ 看着我远去/ 奔向沸腾人群/ 我满心憧憬

最后发现终点不止一个/ 你我面面相觑不知所措

没关系/ 一起享受这美妙的时刻

……

(场外音):它是不是普通的狗重要吗?现在外界都在说我们中心伪造证明!再说 了,哪有人不希望自己的狗是名贵品种?哪有人会刻意要求自己的狗是普通品种?说出去谁会相信?你自己信吗?你见过谁鉴宝的时候希望自己的宝物是假的?现在你只需要向外界澄清自己判断失误,我们道个歉就完了。如果再坚持说下去,保不准我们整个鉴定中心都会被上级审核调查!再说了,这么多年谁能保证自己的鉴定没有失误呢?你也是蠢,塞红包的过程也被拍下来,你要是不想被吊销执照你赶紧给我道歉!不然就卷铺盖滚蛋!

宠物医生:是,是,是,我知道怎么做了。

……

鉴狗专家三:大家好,我是 James Wild。我认为,这只狗长成这样完全是自然界的错误,是基因突变的产物,因为我从没有在美国文献中发现这种狗的存在。(其他两位专家听见后耳语了一番)据——说,(稍停顿)据说,麒麟狗来自中国的古老神话,它寓意着子孙满堂,多子多福,品德高尚,才高八斗,招财进宝,财富满贯,长命百岁,寿比南山,事业顺畅,家庭和睦,吉祥如意,繁荣昌盛。谢谢!

……

艺术家(亢奋地):“您好动物园,我是一位当代艺术家。得知跳舞小狗死去的消息,我深表遗憾,我想买下小狗的遗体做成作品…… 名字我都想好了,就叫《生者对死者的无动于衷》。草间弥生说过:‘魔鬼是艺术的敌人,但更是它的盟友,如果不是为了艺术,我应该很早就自杀了。我成为了创作的囚犯,创作成为了我的医生。’ 对,她是这么说的。这将是一件伟大的作品,一座堆满尸体的动物园,不再有痛苦….. ”

动物园(打断):“没问题啊,还有别的死了的都可以一起拉走。”
