Terms in this set (22)
'Eric is in his early twenties, not quite at ease, half shy, half assertive.'
'Suddenly I felt I just had to laugh.'
'Steady the Buffs!'
'...you've piled it on a bit tonight, Father.'
'It isn't if you can't go and work somewhere else.'
'Why shouldn't they try for higher wages?'
'Eric enters, looking extremely pale and distressed.'
'You know, don't you?'
'You haven't made it any easier for me, have you, Mother?'
'His whole manner of handling the decanter and then the drink shows his familiarity with quick heavy drinking.'
'I was in that state when a chap easily turns nasty - and I threatened to make a row.'
'I wasn't in love with her or anything - but I liked her - she was pretty and a good sport-'
'...I hate these fat old tarts round the town - the ones I see some of your responsible friends with-'
'She didn't want me to marry her. Said I didn't love her - and all that. In a way, she treated me - as if I were a kid.'
'I insisted on giving her enough money to keep her going...I got it - from the office - I intended to pay it back.'
'Because you're not the kind of father a chap could go to when he's in trouble - that's why.'
'You killed her.'
'What does it matter now whether they give you a knighthood or not?'
'I'm ashamed of you as well - yes both of you.'
'You told us that a man has to make his own way, look after himself and mind his own business, and that we weren't to take any notice of these cranks who tell us that everybody has to look after everybody else, as if we were all mixed up together. Do you remember? Yes - and then one of those cranks walked in - the Inspector.'
'He was our police inspector all right.'
'It's still the same rotten story whether it's been told to a police inspector or to somebody else...It's what happened to the girl and what we all did to her that matters.'
