Quotes from

Barbara Marshall: Dad. Dad, I want to ask you a question.
Mr. Marshall: Fine. Fire away.
Barbara Marshall: You know, you never told me anything about Mary. I mean, why she was sent to prison, and why she ...
Mr. Marshall: You can find out about that some other time, when you're a little older.
Barbara Marshall: But it can't be so secret. I don't see why I shouldn't know.
Mr. Marshall: Barbara, you can find out about that some other time. It's just that Mary made a little mistake, and that's all there is to it.
Barbara Marshall: But they don't send people to prison for just doing nothing.
Mr. Marshall: Now, look, Barbara, I'm trying to listen to the radio and work this puzzle, and I can't take on any other jobs at the moment.
Barbara Marshall: But, what if my friends ask me about her? What'll I tell them? They'll want to know why ...
Mr. Marshall: Just tell them that Mary is your cousin. From that point on, they can mind their own business. And it seems to me that your business might be helping your mother out in the kitchen.
Barbara Marshall: [laughing] Oh, Dad. Sometimes the way you talk to me, you make me feel like I'm an adopted daughter or something.

Mrs. Marshall: [Mary picks up an evening dress in a dress shop] You like this one, don't you, Mary?
Mary Marshall: It's lovely.
Mrs. Marshall: Then you're going to have it.
Mary Marshall: Oh, no. Uh-uh.
Mrs. Marshall: Now, you listen to me, Mary. You can't wear the same clothes day after day, your soldier boy's going to get tired of them.
Mary Marshall: Well, I've been fooling him well enough so far. I've been wearing one blouse after another. I don't need a dress, dear.
Mrs. Marshall: Now, Zach's made a big thing of inviting us all to this New Year's Eve party. You can't wear a suit.
Mary Marshall: Uh-uh. I'll manage.
Mrs. Marshall: Henry and I have talked it over. We want you to have a dress.
[Mary shakes her head]
Mrs. Marshall: Oh, Henry will be so disappointed if you don't accept it.
Mary Marshall: Darling, I'll only be able to wear it once. It'll be out of style in three years.
Mrs. Marshall: Then we'll burn it. Miss?
Saleslady: Yes?
Mrs. Marshall: My niece would like to try on this dress.
Saleslady: Oh, it'll be fine on you.
Mrs. Marshall: Go on, dear. Try it on.
Mary Marshall: Well, all right. I'll try it on.

Mary Marshall: [after Barbara had partitioned all their stuff] Barbara, what I'm in prison for isn't catching.
Barbara Marshall: I'm sorry, Mary, I... I keep hurting you, and... I really don't want to.
Mary Marshall: I guess it is uncomfortable for you to meet somebody who's been in prison. Maybe when you get to know me, you'll feel differently.
Barbara Marshall: I want to know you, Mary. Really, I do.
Mary Marshall: How much do you know about me?
Barbara Marshall: Not much. Mother and Dad still treat me like a child. Everything's a big secret.
Mary Marshall: I don't think it would hurt for you to know. As a matter of fact, I think it might help. When I was your age, my mother died.
Barbara Marshall: Oh, I remember her. Way back when I was young. She used to make clothes for my favorite doll.
Mary Marshall: Yes, she was wonderful with her hands. And some time after that, my father went north on business. And then, when he died, I was on my own. I got a very good job as a secretary, and my job brought me in contact with a lot of very nice men, one of whom, might have turned out, I thought, to be the one who would give me all the things that you dream about when you're twenty and lonely. One day, when I was called into my boss's office, he invited me to a party in his apartment. He was single, and I started dreaming. Bosses do marry their secretaries. I took what money I'd saved and I bought an evening dress. I thought it was very fancy. I wanted to look good in front of his high class friends. He had sent me an orchid, a white orchid, the first one I'd ever had. I was wearing it. When the door opened, I walked into the biggest apartment I'd ever seen. I thought it was rich and elegant. I'd wanted to impress him, so I got there a little late. I'd wanted to make an entrance all by myself, but nobody else was there. I should have had sense enough then to get out, but I didn't. He'd been drinking a long time before I got there, I guess, and he kept right on. He told me that he hadn't invited anyone else, and that the white orchid, and all that was just his way of getting me up there. I - I tried to talk my way out, and then when that didn't work, I made a break for it. I didn't scream. I was too frightened, I guess. I tried to get away from him, but I couldn't. He seemed to be everywhere. Oh, it was all mixed up like some terrible kind of a dream. Once, I almost got away, when he f
