        Rose: It works! My mother said that no one can be afraid when they hear that song...except maybe the Kaiser.

      • Rose: I remember an old lullaby my mother used to sing to me, so whenever I'm scared or alone, I sing it.
        Blanche: I don't need a song.
        Rose: (singing) Over there, over there, send the word, send the word over there, that the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming!
        Dorothy: THAT was the lullaby your mother sang to you?
        Rose: It was the only song she knew.

      • Blanche: I've been to enough funerals to see how they make up dead people. They look like clowns. You expect to see ten of them come out of one coffin.

      • Blanche: Oh I cannot have any scars. You see all my clothes are off the shoulder...eventually.

      • (Blanche is being wheeled off to surgery and is scared)
        Dorothy, Sophia and Rose: (singing) Over there, over there, send the word, send the word, over there, that the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming, the drums rum-pumming everywhere. Send the word, send the word, to beware...
