Blanche Quote #127
Quote from Blanche in Nice and Easy
Blanche: Well, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but it's just that I actually went through a very rebellious stage as a teenager. I know how difficult it can be.
Rose: Well, what did you do that was so rebellious?
Blanche: When I was 15, I dropped out of school for a month to become a magician's assistant. When I was 16, I ran off with a gas station attendant twice my age to get married in Mexico. When I was 17, I hitchhiked to New York, and for two months, I was a Rockette under an assumed name.
Dorothy: Tyler's Landing kind of pales in comparison.
Rose: I stand corrected. How did you get through all that, Blanche?
Blanche: I was lucky enough to have my big sister Charmaine chasing after me, trying to talk some sense into my fool head.

Quote from Rose
Blanche: Oh, I'm calling the exterminator!
Rose: Oh, no, don't! A mouse saved my life once. His name was Larry. Larry the mouse. Oh, I loved Larry. He used to walk to school with me every day on a little leash I made out of kite string. Well, one day, we were about to cross the bridge down near the schoolhouse, and Larry stopped dead in his tracks. No matter how I yanked on that leash, he just wouldn't move. Suddenly, I heard this loud noise. The dam upstream had broken, and this rush of water swept the bridge away. Larry saved my life. If it weren't for a mouse just like that little one in the kitchen, I wouldn't be sitting here today, telling you this story.
Dorothy & Sophia: Call the exterminator!
Quote from Blanche
Rose: Blanche, exactly what did you say to Lucy that night at Ed's apartment?
Blanche: Oh, I told her a lot of things. I told her she was a bright, charming, funny young lady who didn't have to rely upon sex to be liked.
Dorothy: Well, good for you, Blanche.
Blanche: You know, I hadn't realized how much she's been looking up to me. I think the thing that really turned her around was when I told her that when it comes to men, I'm just a lot of talk. Embellishment's one of the oldest traditions in the South. Tall tales and tall drinks. I don't really sleep around near as much as I say I do.
Rose: Is that true, Blanche?
Blanche: Maybe it is and maybe it isn't! [winks]

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.
