Quotes from

Jason Hoag, Poet: I'm under orders to make you laugh. In Mrs. Romari's mind, poetry and humor has some strange affinity, which they don't have in fact. She wants me to play the fool for you but... suddenly Miss Gibson, I feel as sad as you do.

Frances Fallon: Your sister had many friends, but they weren't my friends. I was only the manager of her plant.
