Oh, she has to go. Louis] It's a grand old town. It isn't a town, Mr. It's the only city that has a world's fair. Wasn't I lucky to be born in my favorite city? I'm going to let John Truett kiss me tonight. Well, if we're going to get married, I may as well start it. Nice girls don't let men kiss them until after they're engaged. Men don't want the bloom rubbed off. Personally, I think I have too much bloom.
Maybe that's the trouble with me. Braukoff's face] I killed him. She killed him all alone. Hey, wait a minute. Tootie killed the Braukoffs single-handed. She's the bravest of them all! Yeah, Tootie's the most horrible! I'm the most horrible.
You've got a mighty strong grip for a boy.

Here comes the invalid. I have to have two kinds of ice cream. If I ever catch you fibbing again like you did about John Truett, I'll give you something to recuperate about. I've got the future to think about. A future for all of us. I've got to worry about where's the money coming from. Lon in Princeton, and Rose going to college I hate, loathe, despise, and abominate money! You also spend it.
If there ever was a time we definitely needed every ounce of allure, it's tonight. If we're going to wreck Lucille Ballard's evening, we've simply got to be a sensation. Rose, don't you think I could be a sensation without the corset? You're competing with an Eastern girl. I'll wager Lucille Ballard doesn't make a move without a corset.Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien - Under the Bamboo Tree
Well, I certainly don't relish wearing this thing. But pride has come to the rescue. For tonight, I'll do anything. It'll be worth it. If we can create a breathtaking effect, it'll be simple to monopolize all the worthwhile men. There are only going to be about twenty boys worth looking at anyway. We can certainly handle twenty men. Can you handle ten? If you'll guarantee eight, I can handle the rest of them.

What about John Truett? Oh, I'll devote myself to John. But in between times, I'm going to make my presence felt amongst the others. And I always planned exactly how I'd act. I never planned to cry. Well, at least you didn't laugh I never asked a girl to marry me before John, nobody could have done it more beautifully. Of course I will, John. I kept telling myself that even if I did go away, we'd find some way to be together.

Well, I never really believed it. When you go to New York, it will be with your husband. Your folks can show us the town, meet us at the station.
Let's go in and tell them now. Oh no, not tonight. I mean, I'd rather that just the two of us knew about it tonight. Even if I did go to New York, we could still work something out somehow, couldn't we?
We're not moving to New York and I don't want to hear a word about it. We're going to stay right here. We're going to stay here till we rot. We haven't rotted yet, Lonnie. We can't go on like this any longer. I've positively decided we're going to get married at the earliest opportunity. And I don't want to hear any arguments. I'd like to meet that boy sometime. That's what really counts. We could be happy anywhere as long as we're together. Hello, Papa, I buried Maude Rockefeller today, and you missed all the fun.
Oh, I wouldn't say that. I've had a pretty full day.
Tootie, remind me to spank you right after dinner. Lord, we thank thee for the bountiful blessing we are about to receive. Agnes, if I forget to remind Papa, you remind me.

Smith fall down the stairs] 'Tootie' Smith: Now I remember where I left my other skate! Smith, who are these boys? It's me, Katie, it's Agnes! Saints preserve us, it is! You had me fooled!
Mama, we fooled her! Well, if you can fool our Katie, you can fool anyone. Agnes, I thought you were a drunken ghost. Tootie's a horrible ghost, and I'm a terrible drunken ghost. She was murdered in a den of thieves, and I died of a broken heart. I've never even been buried because everyone's scared to come near me. I wanna sleep right here.
Of course you will, darling. And I wanna wear Esther's nightgown. I'll get it for you right now. I hate to think about what your papa's going to do when he hears about all this.
He may strike that Truett boy. I'll do that, Mama. And I'll get you some ice cream and cake, Tootie. I was drunk last night, dear Mother, I was drunk the night before.
But if you'll forgive me, Mother, I'll never get drunk anymore! He didn't even have a chance to scratch me. Why, your dress is torn. Oh, that must've happened while he was trying to hold me off. Rose, it's six-thirty and Warren hasn't called yet.
Maybe he found another girl. Mama, I assure you that I'm not the slightest bit sensitive about Warren Sheffield. The queen has spoken.
I suppose Warren's too young, too. Every fellow I introduce her to is too young. Your papa will be down in a minute, and if we all eat quickly, we may still get out of here before the call comes through.
Warren is twenty-one and I think that's a perfect age.
