    • QUOTES (2)

      • Alice: Sorry, I don't understand, when you say he'd got rid of half your shoes, I thought that was what you'd agreed. You were going to leave him to choose which ones, because you couldn't bear to...
        Cleo: Yes, I left him to choose, Ali, and he got rid of half my shoes.
        (Alice and Milly look at her)
        Cleo: One from each pair!

      • (Gil, pressed into reading Sally's script, has just given his opinion)
        Sally: I think I see what you're saying here. If Alan Bennett had written it, basically it would be from a cozy, middleclass male perspective, whereas this is too dangerous, and challenging, and feminist for you.
        Gil: No, I'm saying if Alan Bennett had written it, it would be funny.

      • Cleo: ... but don't expect me to pick which ones. That's like Sophie's Choice.

      • (discussing Cleo's shoe collection)
        Cleo: This weekend, half of them are going to the Oxfam shop.

        The Oxford Committee for Famine Relief, or Oxfam, is a charity founded in Oxford to address famine caused by a blockade in World War II. Over the years it has become one of the world's leading relief charities providing assistance for both civilian and military disasters.
