'Sheila is a pretty girl in her early twenties, very pleased with life and rather excited.'
'...except for all last summer, when you never came near me, and I wondered what had happened to you.'
'(who has put ring on, admiringly) I think it's perfect. Now I really feel engaged.'
'...I can't help thinking about this girl - destroying herself so horribly - and I've been so happy tonight.'
'But these girls aren't cheap labour - they're people.'
'I went to the manager at Milwards and I told him that if they didn't get rid of that girl, I'd never go near the place again...'
'When I was looking at myself in the mirror I caught sight of her smiling at the assistant, and I was furious with her.'
'...this girl...held the dress up...and it just suited her. She was the right type for it, just as I was wrong type.'
'It's the only time I've ever done anything like that, and I'll never, never do it again to anybody.'
'You gave yourself away as soon as he mentioned her other name.'
'Why - you fool - he knows. Of course he knows. And I hate to think how much he knows that we don't know yet.'

'We all started like that - so confident, so pleased with ourselves until he began asking us questions.'

'And probably between us we killed her.'
'...we've no excuse now for putting on airs and...if we've any sense we won't try.'
'Mother, I think it was cruel and vile.'
'Mother - I begged you and begged you to stop.'
'I behaved badly too. I know I did. I'm ashamed of it. But now you're beginning all over again to pretend nothing much has happened -'
'...you don't seem to have learnt anything.'
'...if all that's come out tonight is true, then it doesn't much matter who it was who made us confess.'
'And Eric's absolutely right. And it's the best thing any one of us has said tonight and it makes me feel a bit less ashamed of us.'
'But that won't bring Eva Smith back to life, will it?'
'...it frightens me the way you talk...'
