  • Quotes

    • Blanche: Oh, take it from me, honey, there is no gentle way to end it with a man. When you're gentle with them, they just don't get the message.
      Rose: Oh, Blanche is so right, Dorothy. That was exactly the problem I had with Eddie Parker. He was this real sweet guy who was crazy about me, but I just didn't feel the same way about him. You see, when Charlie went off to war, I went to work for our local USO club. And, that's where I first met Eddie the Aqua Midget.
      Blanche: He was a blue midget?
      Rose: Don't be ridiculous, he was a diving midget. That was his act. He used to jump off a step ladder into this gigantic punchbowl.
      Dorothy: [stifling laughter] S-so, um... what happened?
      Rose: Nothing. He'd just swim to the side and hop out.
      Dorothy: I mean, uh... what happened between you and Eddie?
      Rose: We talked a lot between shows, and of course I didn't realize it but he- he was falling for me.
      Blanche: Didn't have far to fall.
      [Dorothy grabs Blanche's hand in an attempt to stifle more laughter]
      Rose: It... it started with little things...
      Blanche: I bet.
      [more stifled laughter]
      Rose: Pretty soon the situation got out of control, and I... I tried to let him down gently...
      Blanche: You tried to make it short and sweet?
      [more stifled laughter]
      Rose: He just wouldn't take no for an answer. So I finally had to tell him straight out that I- I didn't feel about him the way he felt about me. It had nothing to do with his size. It- it was simply that... w-I- I could never become seriously involved with anybody in show business.
      Dorothy: [still stifling laughter] Thank you, Rose. I... I don't know what to say... And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
