Rafaela Ottiano Quotes:

Marcel: [Referring to Lachna, the servant girl] Malita, where did you get her?
Malita: In a Berlin slum. She's an in-bred peasant half-wit. But I wanted no prying wits about me.


Malita: We'll make the whole WORLD small!


Malita: [after Lachna has been shrunk] You've corrected her brain, Marcel. She's no longer the stupid half-wit. Oh, she's going to be beautiful!
