Dorothy Quote #892

Quote from Dorothy in Like the Beep Beep Beep of the Tom-Tom

Dorothy: Blanche, what is that thing?
Sophia: She's decided to install a change machine.
Blanche: Oh, it's, um, it's called a Holter monitor. It makes a kind of ticker tape of your heart.
Sophia: What's wrong with your heart?
Blanche: Oh, nothing. Dr. Stein just thought it sounded a little irregular. I think it's 'cause I was so uncomfortable sittin' there topless with a strange man.
Dorothy: Next time, just pretend you're at home and he's the bug guy.

Quote from Rose

Rose: You know what I do when I'm scared?
Sophia: You toss your cookies.
Rose: I mean besides that. I sing.
Dorothy: You what?
Rose: A lullaby my mother used to sing to me when I was a little girl. So, when I'm scared or alone, I sing it and it gives me courage.
Blanche: No song is gonna help me.
Rose: [singing] Over there Over there Send the word, send the word over there That the Yanks are coming-
Dorothy: That is the lullaby that your mother sang to you?
Rose: Well, it was the only song she knew. During World War I she gave out donuts and coffee to the doughboys before they boarded the trains for Europe. It works, truly. She said no one can be scared when they hear that song, except maybe the Kaiser.

Quote from Blanche

Dr. Stein: How are we feeling, Mrs. Devereaux?
Blanche: A little nervous.
Dr. Stein: You really don't need makeup.
Blanche: Well, I wanna look good just in case.
Dr. Stein: Just in case what?
Blanche: In case something should go wrong. I've been to enough funerals to see how they make up dead people. They look like clowns. You expect to see a dozen of 'em jump out of one coffin.

Rose: I'll make it up to you, Dorothy, I promise. Listen, if there's ever a night where you can't sleep, I'll come to your room and sing "Kumbaya."

Quote from Sister of the Bride

Clayton: Blanche, we don't have to worry about what the world thinks about our relationship. It just doesn't matter, because we're there for each other. I'd do anything for Doug, and he'd bend over backwards for me.
Dorothy: [covers Sophia's mouth and pulls her close] Sometimes I just love to hug my mommy.
