Dorothy: (referring to Buddy)That business of giving him money has been bothering me, so I decided to do some checking on Buddy Rourke and after a couple phone calls I found out that he had just retired after 45 years in the records department of the army pension office. Blanche: I don't get it. Dorothy: That's how he knew about Charlie. They never served together. He just read his file. Blanche: No! But he knew all those things about Rose. Dorothy: He knew that she came from St. Olaf, everything else Rose probably volunteered. You know her, a stranger says hello and suddenly he's hearing the life story of Rose's Uncle Fingerbinger and his 60 pound rutabaga. Blanche: Then this is all just a scam to bilk Rose out of some money? Dorothy: Absolutely and it's not the first time he's tried it.
