Quote from Blanche in Melodrama
Blanche: For your information, I'm upset because I had a date, and he called and canceled.
Dorothy: Oh, honey, I'm sorry. Was it anybody special?
Blanche: Well, that's not the point. He might have taken me someplace where I'd meet someone who is.
Dorothy: You know, it's amazing. Beneath that thin veneer of superficiality, somehow, miraculously, there is another even thinner veneer.
