The Women (1939)
Phyllis Povah: Mrs. Phelps Potter - Edith
Edith Potter : [Wiping her hands on towel] Oh, cheap Chinese embroidery! You know, I'll bet Peggy gave her these...
Sylvia Fowler : It wouldn't be so bad if only Mary's friends knew; we could keep our mouths shut.
Edith Potter : I know plenty I'd never breathe about my friend's husbands.
Sylvia Fowler : Oh, so do I!
[They both turn around and look at each other]
Edith Potter : Well, you know, I adore Mary!
Sylvia Fowler : I worship her! We're not only cousins; she's my dearest friend in the world. After all, we were raised together!
[Turns around quickly]
Sylvia Fowler : Oh Edith, I forgot to tell you...
[Whispers to Edith]
Mary Haines : Break it up, girls! Break it up!
Edith Potter : Darling!
Mary Haines : Hello!
Edith Potter : You're so slim, I could kill you.
Mary Haines : You don't have to. The diet I'm on is pure poison.
Sylvia Fowler : [At the place Crystal Allen works] Well, here we are... Creeping up on her!
Edith Potter : Darling do you think we ought to do this?
Sylvia Fowler : Oh shut up!
Edith Potter : [Spots lady] That's little Crystal!
Sylvia Fowler : None other...
Ugly saleswoman : [Turns around] May I serve you madam?
Edith Potter : [Surprised] No, thank you!
Sylvia Fowler : [Surprised] Just looking!
Sylvia Fowler : Oh from the neck up I'd say no...
[Spots other woman]
Sylvia Fowler : Ah, how about baby?
Edith Potter : Of course!
[Walks over to her]
Edith Potter : Mmmm... Couldn't be anyone else!
[Hears other lady call her "Pat"]
Sylvia Fowler : Pat?
Edith Potter : I still don't know why he overlooked her.
Sylvia Fowler : I do...
[points to Crystal]
Sylvia Fowler : Pipe.
Jane : [Opens the door for Edith] How do you do, Mrs. Potter?
Edith Potter : Hello, Jane.
Jane : And how are you feeling today?
Edith Potter : Too awful. I wouldn't wish my woes on my worst friend.
[Looks around the corner]
Edith Potter : Oh Jane, will you tell Mrs. Fowler that I'd like to speak to her out here for just a moment.
Jane : Yes, Mrs. Potter.
Nancy Blake : [Comes around the corner and surprises Edith] How's the little mother?
Edith Potter : [shouts out to Jane] Jane! Never mind about that...
Edith Potter : Hello, dear...
Nancy Blake : The spider's in the parlor. Let's go join her.
Edith Potter : Oh, she can't help it. It's just her tough luck that she wasn't born deaf and dumb.
