Oh, my baby, my baby.
Would you like some pop?
Not with my nerves tonight. Scotch for me, please.
You haven't asked me how I got away from school before the spring term ended.
I thought you'd volunteer that information if you want to tell me.
You thought I'd been fired?
No. I thought you might have resigned.
Oh, I was so exhausted by all I'd been through, my nerves broke.
I was on the verge of lunacy, almost.
So Mr. Graves...
Mr. Graves is the high school superintendent.
Thank you. He suggested I...
I take a leave of absence.
I couldn't put all those details into the wire.
This buzzes right through me and feels so good.
- Would you like another? - Uh-uh. One's my limit.
You haven't said a word about my appearance.
- You look just fine. - God love you for a liar.
Daylight never exposed so total a ruin.
But you... You put on some weight. Yes.
You're just as plump as a little partridge. It's so becoming to you too.
- Oh, Blanche. - Yes, it is. Or I wouldn't say it. You...
...just have to watch around the hips a little.
I want you to look at my figure, you know?
I haven't put on one ounce in 10 years, Stella.
I weigh now what I weighed the summer you left Belle Reve.
The summer Dad died...
...and you left us.
It's just incredible, Blanche, how well you look.
- Sure you wouldn't like another? - Well...
Well, maybe I will just take one tiny nip more.
Just to put the stopper on, so to speak. Now, don't get worried.
Your sister hasn't turned into a drunkard. She's just all shaken up...
...and hot and dirty and tired.
