Quotes from

Albert Feather: Well, Auntie, where's your cane? From the look on your face, I'd say that you're about to take down my britches and give me a dozen.


Albert Feather: How about makin' the most of a male fish now one has been washed up, ay? What about a smacker?
Lucy: No, you mustn't! I don't know you!
Albert Feather: You don't have to know people to kiss them.
Lucy: I do!


Leonora Fiske: Ellen, you're a hypocrite! You're worse! You're a cheat! You meant to foist your wretched brood upon me and bleed me white! And when I saw through your little scheme, you had the insolence to turn on me and abuse me! But you've chosen the wrong woman! You get those sisters of yours out of the house at once! And you take a month's wages and go with them.
