  • Quotes

    • Host: A bit of gossamer and lace, as befits a beautiful woman. Fragile and ephemeral, in keeping with the soft mystery of the female. But to the gentlemen amongst you who like all your male predecessors since the beginning of time have been mystified and miffed by a female counterpart, this one's for you. A beautiful lady in a strange house, also inhabited, alas, by the Ghost of Sorworth Place.
