  • Quotes

    • Lucy: (bellyaching about not being in the show) You and I, the stars of last year's show, not even on the program this year! Who would believe it?!?
      Vivian: Anyone who saw last year's show.

    • Vivian: (getting haughty since she's now in the show) Oh, Lucy. We're having our dress rehearsal tonight, so, uh, do my costume right away!
      Lucy: (at sewing machine) I'll do it as soon as I sweep the chimney, wicked step-sister!
