Julie Walters: Mrs. Kehoe
Mrs. Keogh : [Preparing for a weekend at the beach] Diana's right, though, Eilis. You need to think carefully about your costume. It's the most Tony will ever have seen of you. You don't want to put him off.
Mrs. Keogh : I'll tell you this much: I am going to ask Father Flood to preach a sermon on the dangers of giddiness. I now see that giddiness is the eighth deadly sin. A giddy girl is every bit as evil as a slothful man, and the noise she makes is a lot worse. Now, enough.
Diana : Have you told Tony yet, Ellis?
Eilis : Of course.
Sheila : Is he taking you out to celebrate?
Eilis : We're going to Coney Island at the weekend.
Patty : Oh, boy.
Eilis : What does that mean?
Patty : Well, do you have a bathing costume?
Eilis : No, I was going to...
Diana : Do you have sunglasses?
Eilis : No.
Sheila : You need sunglasses. I read that if you don't have them on the beach this year, people will talk about you.
Mrs. Keogh : And what will they say, exactly, Sheila?
Dolores : That's the thing, Mrs Kehoe. You'd never know, because they'd never say it to your face.
Mrs. Keogh : Ellis, from the look of you, you have greasy skin, is that right? What do you do about that?
Eilis : Just... Well, I wash it, Mrs. Keogh, with soap.
Miss McAdam : There is nothing wrong with soap. Soap was good enough for our Lord. I expect.
Mrs. Keogh : Well, which brand did he use, Miss McAdam? Does the Bible tell you that?
Diana : Our Lord is a man anyway. He didn't care about greasy skin.
Mrs. Keogh : Ladies, no more talk about our Lord's complexion at dinner, please.
Mrs. Keogh : Have they told you what day for the nylons sale, Ellis? Never had a Bartocci's girl in here. Might get some inside information.
Eilis : I haven't been told anything.
Diana : I bet you wouldn't let on if you had.
Patty : She's that sort. More aligned to her bosses than to her friends.
Diana : Like a red spy.
Sheila : Oh, dear God.
Mrs. Keogh : I'll thank you to keep His name out of a conversation about nylons. He might be everywhere, but He's not in Bartocci's on sale day.
