Quotes from scenes

Rose: Oh, Blanche, how do you feel about performing in front of a video camera?

  • Blanche: I think it's okay as long as you've already had at least three dates.

  • Blanche: ...And that leaves me with only one choice, I'm going to be perfect, I'm going to be gorgeous! I'm going to have my tummy tucked, my but firmed and my breasts raised and my face lifted.
  • Sophia: It's a shame to do all that and keep that hairdo.

[Rose is following Dorothy around with a camcorder]

  • Dorothy: Will you put that thing down. What do you think you're doing?
  • Rose: Well, I'm making a video for my class at the junior college.
  • Dorothy: Oh, really? Gee it sounds like fun.
  • Rose: Oh, I'm glad you think so, cause I want you to be one of the stars!

Dorothy: Oh, Rose, I don't think so! You know how uncomfortable I am infront of a camera. Besides I always come out looking like Fess Parker.

  • Rose: Don't worry. This is a documentary; it's okay if you're not good looking.
  • Dorothy: Rose, stop trying to appeal to my ego. The answer is no.
