Dorothy Quote #1080

Quote from Dorothy in Melodrama

Rose: I did that last part after everything quieted down. I thought it would kinda tie things together.
All: Wow.
Blanche: You didn't cover the robbery at all?
Rose: Was I wrong again? I mean, I could have covered the holdup, but it would have seemed like I was giving in to sensationalism. I'm a reporter, damn it. They sent me to cover a story, and that's what I did.
Sophia: I don't believe this. Rose, this was the opportunity of a lifetime, a one-in-a-million shot. How could-
Dorothy: How could- How could they not have given you the job? Maybe the issue here is one of- Oh, God, what can we call it? Editorial judgment.
Rose: Really? You think so?
Dorothy: Oh, yes, Rose. Yes, I do. I guess it just isn't the story they wanted.
Blanche: Damn, you're good.

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."
