Tipping the Velvet (TV Mini-Series 2002) Poster

Rachael Stirling: Nan Astley



  • Nancy Nan Astley : Don't you know? Hasn't she told you about us?

    Walter Bliss : I know that you were sweethearts of a kind.

    Nancy Nan Astley : Of a kind? The kind that hold hands? Didn't she tell you that we fuck eachother?!

    Walter Bliss : I don't care to use such language Nan. And if I did, I wouldn't use it for anything a pair of girls could do, you need a man for that I think you'll find.

  • Florence Banner : [after overhearing a prostitute in the women's bar talk about an easy and enjoyable job, Florence looks truly puzzled]  Tipping the velvet? Why what ever can THAT be?

    Nancy Nan Astley : [rather surprised at the question]  You don't know?

    Florence Banner : [Smiling]  Well it sounds like something to do with dress making or millinary, but it can't be. No one would pay to watch that.

    Nancy Nan Astley : [Laughing]  No. It isn't.

    Florence Banner : Well what then?

    Florence Banner : [Nan has showed Florence the tip of her tongue, then pointedly nodded and looked at Florence's lap]  Oh!

    [she says, shocked but somewhat titilated] 

  • Nancy Nan Astley : But I didn't want to be her sister... I wanted to be her sweetheart!

  • Freddy : You can hold on as tight as you like. Don't worry, I'll tell you if it hurts.

    Nancy Nan Astley : No, I don't want to!

    Freddy : What's the matter?

    Nancy Nan Astley : Nothing, I just don't want that Freddy.

    Freddy : I am serious you know Nan? We could be engaged! Well, then it would be alright wouldn't it?

    Nancy Nan Astley : Can't we just go on as we are?

    Freddy : You don't really care for me at all.

    Nancy Nan Astley : I do though.

    Freddy : No you don't, you just like to keep me there tagging along like. If you really cared for me you'd let me do it.

    Nancy Nan Astley : Well then, I don't care for you!
