Terms in this set (29)
Auntie Bellum: There you are, I've been looking all over for you.
It didn't look that way to me Auntie Bellum. Why, I'm positively scandalized. Whatever would the neighbors think?
Auntie Bellum: Your Uncle Ben and I have something important to talk to you about.
It sounds serious.
Auntie Bellum: Yes, Violet Loo, today we must speak of things better left unspoken by the fair sex.
Do you mean the tender relations between men and women?
Auntie Bellum: Worse than that dear. I mean money.
Abby: Mister Preston Upright here to see Miz Vilet Loo.
Preston: Violet Loo! Happy Birthday.
Abby, you may leave us. I shall entertain Mr. Preston.
Abby: It ain't right for no young lady to be entertainin' no gennelmen without no chaperone.
Uncle Ben is here to chaperone us.
Lillybelle & Lulubelle: She puts this white stuff all over her face. It makes her look like a ghost.
You two get over there right now or Abby might find out who stole her sweet potato pie yesterday.
Preston: Is that a new dress you're wearing?
Yes. Auntie Bellum and Uncle Ben gave it to me this morning for my eighteenth birthday. Do you like it?
Preston: I like everything about you.
Preston, you'll turn a girl's head.
Preston: There's a question I want to ask you, but...
Yes? What is it, Preston? Speak your mind.
Preston: Say you'll let me ask your Uncle Ben and your Auntie Bellum for permission to come courting.
Why Preston, this is so unexpected.
Lillybelle & Lulubelle: Preston's coming courting (x3). We're telling Abby.
You've put me into a right confusion. In fact, I'm downright dizzy.
Preston: Will you give me a kiss to seal my happiness?
A kiss? Why, yes, I think that would be proper. Don't you?
Preston: What a little flirt you are.
Flirt? Well, if that's what you think, you can take your lips right on out of here.
Preston: I'll leave, but I'll be back later with your birthday surprise.
A surprise for me? What is it? (multiple times while circling Preston) Oh, please tell me. I can't stand surprises.
Preston: You'll just have to wait.
Ooh, you...you snake!
Uncle Ben: Awake? Yes, I'm awake. I was just resting my eyes.
No, no, Uncle Ben, not awake, snake.
Uncle Ben: If it comes back, just call me. I'll be right over here resting my eyes.
That's a real comfort to me.
Aunt Martha: Good morning, Violet.
Why Aunt Martha, you're up and about early today.
Aunt Martha: You seem to be in a very good mood for someone who is rapidly approaching middle age.
Oh, I can't keep a secret, can I? All right, I'll tell you. Preston is coming to call this afternoon.
Aunt Martha: Is that all? He's been calling every afternoon for two years.
I know, but somehow, things are different now. I suspect I am growing a woman's heart.
Aunt Martha: Either that, or you've been out in the sun too long.
Don't make fun of me. I think something serious is happening. I feel it in my heart, and in my stomach.
Auntie Bellum: Don't say stomach, honey, it's not delicate. Say tummy.
Auntie Bellum: This is a gift from beyond the grave.
Look. It's a picture of Mama and my dah-ya-dee, the Colonel.
Auntie Bellum: When your daddy, the Colonel, didn't come back from the war, it broke your Mama's heart.
These are love letters from my dah-ya-dee, the Colonel. Look, here's one addressed to me. It's from Mama. It says, "My dear
Violet Loo, it gives me such happiness to think of you all grown up. Your daddy, the Colonel, left me well provided for. I have left the lawyer Carlton as your executor until you are old enough to execute yourself. Remember, a mother's love can never die. P.S. Beware of men who wear black capes." Oh Mama, why did you leave me?
Aunt Martha: We have some bad news for you.
Whatever is the matter?
Auntie Bellum: Let me put it delicately. You're broke.
Auntie Bellum: ... It's very strange, but when young Mr. Lowdown took over the old lawyer Carlton's practice, he found that almost the whole estate had disappeared.
