A producer's film is endangered when his star walks off, so he decides to digitally create an actress to substitute for the star, becoming an overnight sensation that everyone thinks is a real person.

Elaine: Viktor, you realize you're nostalgic for an era you weren't even born in?
Simone: God created little furry animals to be worn.
Viktor: Do you know why I, Viktor Taransky, two-time Academy Award nominated director...
Elaine: Viktor, that was short subjects.
Viktor: ...overseeing the most cherished movie project of my entire career, am walking around with - look, look, look - pockets full of these... things?
Elaine: Well, I have a feeling you're gonna tell me.
Viktor: I'm gonna tell ya why. Because Miss Nicola Anders, supermodel with a SAG card, has it written in her contract that all cherry Mike and Ike's be removed from her candy dish, along with strict instructions that any room she walks into must have seven packs of cigarettes waiting for her, three of them open. That there be a personal Jacuzzi within eighty paces of her dressing room, and that any time she travels, her nanny must fly with her, first class.
Elaine: So? What's wrong with that?
Viktor: Elaine, she doesn't have children.
Simone: Everybody always talks about the negatives of cigarettes, but look at the benefits. I mean you don't eat as much and you've got something to hold in your hand.
Viktor: A star is digitized. You know what this means? We have stepped into a new dimension. Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to protect it.
Viktor: You made me, but I made you first.
Viktor: You know, it's easier to fool a hundred thousand people than just one.
Simone: What's the matter, Viktor? You look so sad. Don't you love me anymore?
Viktor: The only real truth is the work.
Simone: If there is a hole in the ozone layer, how come I can't see it?
Chief Detective: Can you tell us why you're disposing of the body of a woman that doesn't exist?
Viktor: Well it's not her body. It's it's it's her body... of work.
Viktor: [to Simone] You're more authentic than all the people who worship you, and that's the problem you're lookin' at... the real fraud. I told myself this was all about the work. But if that were the truth, it wouldn't matter to me that you got all the attention, and it does; it does. I'm sorry, Simone. Here I was trying to convince the whole world you existed, but what I was really trying to do was convince them that I exist.
Viktor: She's indestructible.
Viktor: She killed you, Hank, and now she's killing me. She's a serial killer.
[to a group of reporters]
Viktor: Simone appears only when I want her to appear.
Simone: Are you ever going to tell the truth about me, Mr Taransky?
Viktor: Creative differences? The difference is, you're not creative.
Viktor: I did it. Tell them they can fry me. I DID IT! It was premeditated! I strangled her... I bludgeoned her... I set her on fire, and then I killed her! I did it!
Viktor: I made her.
Elaine: No, Viktor. She made YOU.
[first lines]
Production Assistant: Uh, Mr. Taransky, she's...
Viktor: She's walking? Don't tell me she's walking. She can't walk!
[heads off running]
Viktor: Nicola!
Simone: You're gonna get in a lot of trouble, Mr Taransky.
Viktor: Why do you have to bring that up?
Simone: I am the death of real.
Viktor: [to a Simone poster] You bitch! I will crush you.
Max Sayer: What about the fingerprints? What happened when we dusted that whole hotel suite?
Milton: Well, we have some of Taransky's fingerprints, a lot of yours... and none of hers.
Max Sayer: No one is that perfect, that pure. You know, I had something on Mother Teresa once - and then she died and it just wasn't worth it anymore.
Viktor: Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to detect it.
Simone: Have you ever actually *had* dolphin? Pan-fried, with a little garlic and fennel.
Lainey Christian Taransky: Your mistake wasn't doing something fake. We're fine with fake. As long as you don't lie about.
Viktor: This is a classic case of technology in search of an artist.
Simone: I guess what I like most about my movies is that they're not about special effects.
Simone: You see Viktor and I are both very concerned about what kind of world our new son Chip is going to grow up in. Aren't you Viktor?
Viktor: Oh, yes.
Simone: I just think all elementary schools should have a firing range. How else will the children learn to defend themselves?
Elaine: Why stop at one character when you can do a whole cast?
