Blanche Quote #60
Rose: Oh, honey, what happened, you poor darling?
Blanche: I went to the police station today to get an update on my case. I borrowed your pocket hairspray. I took it from your dressing table. You know what this humidity does to my hair.
Rose: I know, cotton candy.
Blanche: Well, just as I entered the police station, I saw there was this cute officer there who's had his eye on me, so I took out your hairspray and gave my hair a final spritz. Only, surprise, it wasn't hairspray. It was mace. You had mace. Your hairspray was mace. I maced myself right there in the police station! I almost died. I fell to the floor blinded, writhing in pain. Couldn't move for 20 minutes.
Rose: Well, what do you know? It works!
Blanche: Works? They thought I was on angel dust. They wanted to arrest me! I'm lyin' there dyin' and they're harassing me. Murderers are free, rapists are free, but a poor widow on the floor they try to lock up. Who'd I hurt? Me?
Quote from Sophia
Blanche: Sophia, where are you going?
Sophia: To my room.
Rose: Well, you can't. It could be dangerous!
Sophia: Please, I'm 80. Bathtubs are dangerous!
Quote from Sophia
Blanche: I've got a date tonight and no jewelry to wear. Some scum's woman is wearing my mama's jewelry.
Rose: I wonder if jewelry comes from Jewish people. In Little Falls, the jewelry was Jewish. Jeweler, Jewish... I wonder if there's a connection?
Sophia: I think there's a connection between your brain and wallpaper paste.
Quote from Hey, Look Me Over
Rose: Wait a minute. If you didn't sleep with any of the men in these journals, then how come it says "Bed" on the cover?
Blanche: [laughs] Oh, that doesn't say "Bed."
Rose: Right there, it does.
Blanche: Oh, silly, those are my initials. Blanche Elizabeth Devereaux.
Dorothy: Your initials spell "Bed"?
Quote from It's a Miserable Life
Blanche: Wish me luck.
Dorothy: Wait. Blanche, why should you do it?
Blanche: Because we'll have a better chance. I happen to be a wonderful orator. And two of the commissioners can verify that.
Dorothy: Blanche, "orator" means "speaker".
Blanche: Really? Oh. Well, somebody else do the talking.
