Blanche Quote #953

Quote from Blanche in All Bets Are Off

Dorothy: Ah, Blanche, you're finally dressed!
Blanche: Yeah, I went back to work.
Rose: Good for you!
Blanche: And you know what I found out the reason Donald rejected me was? He has this strict personal rule against getting involved with anybody he's working with.
Dorothy: I told you.
Blanche: Yeah. Well, anyway, he knew it was either violate this rule of his, or quit his job and come after me. So that's what he did, he quit! And then he asked me to go out with him.
Dorothy: And what did you say?
Blanche: Well, I've decided to take Rose's advice. I'm playing hard to get, like that little possum in your story.
Rose: Did I mention the part where you hang upside down from the tree?
Blanche: I can do that.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I, uh, I would lend you my pass to the jockeys' lounge, but you don't want to date a jockey. The sex is over too fast, and afterwards the only nice thing they have to say to you is, "Good girl, good girl."

Quote from Rose

Rose: I have to get a horse in this picture while it's still fresh in my mind. I don't know whether to paint Old Silver, the horse who brought the news to St. Olaf that the British had no intention of coming or Old Brisker, the horse who, because of a printing error on the ballot slips, was elected water commissioner for six months.

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.
