Dalloway (in the garden where Rose died): It's so lonely here. You'd think no one was here.
Frank: They probably keep this end of the house closed-up.
Dalloway: Oh, no. She should never have died like this...not Rose. She should've been surrounded by people.
Annie: Rose, you've got company. Now, don't come out unless you're dressed.
Rose (walking out from the bathroom): Why not? I've kept my figure!
