‘The Actor’ Quotes
Quote from Dorothy
Dorothy: Rose, why don't we just show Mr. Vaughn around the theatre?
Blanche: Well, why don't I do that myself because I've had the most experience performing here.
Dorothy: Blanche, the parking lot doesn't count.
Quote from Rose
Blanche: And we just want you to know how excited we are that an artist of your stature is going to be performing in our little theatre.
Patrick Vaughn: Ladies, there are no small theatres, no small parts, only small actors.
Rose: Like Herve Villechaize.
Patrick Vaughn: I was speaking metaphorically.
Rose: Oh, please go on. That's such a beautiful language.
Rose Nylund Quotes
Quote from Dorothy's New Friend
Rose: I remember when I was a little girl back in St. Olaf. There was this old lady who lived up the street. She never smiled. I mean, she always looked angry. The kids said she'd kill anyone who even stepped on her property. We called her Mean Old Lady Higgenlooper.
Blanche: Yeah, kids can be pretty cruel.
Rose: No. That was her name. Mean Old Lady Higgenlooper. She had it changed legally 'cause everybody called her that anyway.
Blanche: Then how come your name isn't Big Dummy?
Rose: Well, there were already three other people in town with that name. But that's beside the point. One day I got up the courage to go up to Mean Old Lady Higgenlooper and ask her why she always frowned. Well, she had been born with no smiling muscles. I pointed out that a frown is just a smile turned upside down. So from then on, whenever I'd go by, she'd stand on her head and wave.
Quote from Henny Penny - Straight, No Chaser
Blanche: This is horrible. As Big Daddy used to say, "I'm feeling lower than the rent on a burnin' building."
Rose: That's funny. I used to live in a burning building. And it was cheap. It was Charlie's and my first house. Well, scoff if you must, but it was warm and toasty. I'll never forget Charlie throwing me over his shoulder and dashing across the threshold. Oh, it was a beautiful place. Three bedrooms, two baths. Then two bedrooms and one bath. Eventually, we outgrew the place.
