Trish: Wouldn't you just die without Mahler?
Rita: Absolutely, I'm a devout Mahlerite.
Jack: That felt amazing, it was like the finale from Mahler's 5th.
Sarah: Really? I thought it was more like trying to sit through a Bruckner symphony.
Jack: Oh God, Sarah... please don't say that... please.
Sarah: Just kidding, my legs are still shaking from it.
Jack: You're such a sexy Mahlerite.
"...though I passionately admire the works of Richard Strauss, I am, first and foremost, a Mahlerite."

Lenny: Where's Daniel? the symphony will be starting any minute now.
Simon: Oh, he said he was going to stay at home and watch an opera or something.
Lenny: What? It's Mahler's 3rd, how could he? He's probably a Wagnerian or something.
Simon: Calm yourself, this is no way for a Mahlerite to behave.
Lenny: You're quite right.
