Wizard: Can't you see it? Wizard productions presents the number one heat wave: august rush.
August Rush: Yeah! Me! That's me.
Wizard: You know what music is? God's little reminder that there's something else besides us in this universe, a harmonic connection between all living beings, every where, even the stars.
August Rush: The music is all around US, all you have to do is listen.
Jennifer: Are all Irish people this loud?
Louis Connelly: Yeah.
August Rush: Sometimes the world tries ot knock it out of you. But I believe in music the way that some people believe in fairy tales. I like to imagine that what I hear came from my mother and father. Maybe the notes I hear, are the same ones they heard, the night they met. Maybe that's how they found each other. Maybe that's how they'll find me. I believe that once upon a time, long ago, they heard the music and followed it.
Wizard: You got to love music more than you love food. More than life. More than yourself.
Lyla Novacek: I know it sounds crazy, but I can hear him! I swear I can hear him.
Louis Connelly: Come on. Be brave.
