Quote from Hey, Look Me Over
Rose: Wait a minute. If you didn't sleep with any of the men in these journals, then how come it says "Bed" on the cover?

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.
Quote from Blanche
Blanche: Well, I am Blanche Devereaux, nee Hollingsworth, of Atlanta, daughter of Curtis Hollingsworth and Samantha Roquet of Augusta and Shreveport, daughter of- I can't do it. I- Daughter of Feldman. I'm a Feldman, damn it. Of Buffalo. [all gasp] Oh, ladies, now, please, I beg of you. Let us put aside our ancient prejudices and change these rules. Oh, ladies, let my people in.
Quote from Blanche
Dorothy: Oh, honey, I hope you're not too upset about not fitting in with those dreadful people today.
Blanche: Those small-minded peckerwoods aren't real Southerners. I am a real Southerner. Real Southerners are compassionate people. They're wise and gentle, and they sit around on porch swings, regaling with stories of Abraham and Moses and all the other people who worked on the plantation.
Quote from Rose
Rose: Isn't there anything you can do, Barbara?
Barbara: I suppose I could do this. All right, Cheeseman, you're under arrest.
Rose: You told us you didn't have a gun. You lied.
Barbara: To a bad guy. It's OK to lie to a bad guy.
Rose: You see that? There's so many things we, as the public, don't understand.
