„Parry is a man with a previous life that was so damaged that he had to create another personality.“

On his role in The Fisher King (1991), as quoted in "Dreams: The Fisher King" (2006) edited by Phil Stubbs http://www.smart.co.uk/dreams/fkprod1.htm

Parry is a creation — somewhat Don Quixote, somewhat Groucho Marx — but he's a creation designed to avoid a past event.
