Blanche Quote #847

Quote from Blanche in Ebb Tide

Blanche: And this is the living room.
Dorothy: Oh, Blanche, it's a lovely home. I better go check and see if the water for our tea is boiling.
Blanche: Oh, Dorothy, there's so many memories connected to this room. We used to have our big family reunions in here. Generations of Hollingsworths would gather round Big Daddy with his bourbon and branch. And while he sat there in front of a roaring fire regaling everybody with stories of the Old South, I'd sneak away up to my room and make out with cousin Abernathy.
Dorothy: The room has that sense of tradition.
