We'll look at it. Meanwhile, Charlie-you just keep smiling.
You shoulda seen it, Grace! The church was filled with flowers. Lillies and carnations and orchids. You know how Amelia loved orchids.
Those were flags.
I know an orchid when I see one, Irene. Purple orchids. Oh, and that smell? Grace, was that smell, it was like-like..
Like heaven. I was gonna say like heaven.
Like it was some kinda valentino picture.
It wasn't just a funeral, it was Amelia's- and it was beautiful. The church was like the botanical garden. Oh, and company sent flowers too, a whole spray of carnations.
Sounds like a nice service anyhow.
Surprised you wasn't there Grace, What happened? Tom keep you out late? To the pictures.
Till the old is so bad, you can't make make a point no more.
(to Irene) how can ya make quota like that?
for us to do the work (Macneil moves away)
It's not for us to be askin questions!
let some of the starch out of yer corset
Mcneil, are you kidding me- or Was she at the service
Dr. von sochocky was though. And Mr. roeder. Oh! And grace, you know that fella from cystalizing? What's his name, the one with the red hair?
I think it's George.
to Amelia in the day room.
Grace! When the was was over- he goes to the coffin, like this, he goes!
So what if he did?
So what? He was in love with her, that's so what. Don't you think so Grace.
I guess he had to be if he did that
And can you imagine? If he loved her and he never told her, never could bring himself to say! because... because she was so beautiful...and... and he was so shy. And now it's too late. He didn't tell her, and he'll never get a chance again.
Her family took it awful bad, Grace. Everyone of 'em cryin'. Even her father. Just bawlin' like a baby.
What she died from
Don't go spreaded stories
upped and died from syphillis
Gonna take that job?
I will if you do
TOmmy would have a fit
Just for a few months. Oh come on, Grace, it's be fun! won't it be fun, Irene? Irene?
I dont find anything under Schuab
The girl im askin about- Irene rudolph, my cousin.
Did she file the complaint?
No, the dentist!
He said she might have a phossy jaw like they got in the match factories. And he was gonna complain to the health department. But it's been six months and he hasn't heard.
Maybe it was a blood infection.
But what was it from?
You get infections from dirt?
From dirt? Her face puffed up like a pumpkin. Her jaw rotted so bad she couldn't eat no more. You think you get that from a little dirt? You get it from phosphorous.
Go ahead and laugh. You won't laugh so hard six months from now, when it's you in here askin' after grace.
It's just a toothache Kathryn.
That's how it started for Irene. You wait Grace. Soon youll be so weak and sick you cant stand up. Your gums will ache so bad you cant open your//mouth.
Stop it Kathryn
Your face so swollen you can't stand the sight a yourself.
I said stop it!
Yeah a toothache. A toothache and a back ache-and what else was it you said Grace? A sore leg that wont quit.
From standin all day
It's not from the bank and you know it.
see for yourself
Paint is a harmless compound of radium and zinc?
Let's get some lunch
I wanna file another complaint.
They're awful busy
Three surgeries, Grace, and they wanted to cut her again. She said no. She knew. What was left of her jaw rotted so bad-I couldnt look at her. Irene was so afraid of being alone- but I left her alone. She died in the middle of the night, and nobody was with her.
My findings, Mr Roeder.
He's seen half a dozen girls. Word I hear? He's workin for the company.
They'll do anyhting
Except the right thing.
What would you do with $250,000
I'd buy a wardrobe like Irene Castle!
Knowing what you've been through!
And the company getting fat off your labor.
Ya all right?
you need yer sleep
'Fraid to sleep. Might not wake up.
and she sure was right-
Grace, what if we don't win.
course we'll win
What if we don't? We'll be on the street. And you and Tom, you wont ever get married.
'em askin' after you
waitin' for me to die
no one is waitin' for you to die
it's true. One of 'em called my mother. Askin' if I had died. When she said, "No." He sounded. Disappointed.
easy money, huh?
And all we do. is talk. To this herbalist fella?
Company owes us a lot more than that
If we ever see it.
