Violet Devereaux: You can't get away, Caroline!

Violet Devereaux: You think I'm senile, don't you?

Violet Devereaux: Maybe because you don't believe them.

Violet Devereaux: You're not from the south. You wouldn't understand. That room up there?
[points]

Caroline Ellis: I thought the key opens everything.

Caroline Ellis: What have you done?
Violet Devereaux: He is my husband and I am his wife I will do whatever I want to him.
Caroline Ellis: What have you done to him?
Violet Devereaux: Oh, you've done something.
Caroline Ellis: He's not safe in this house; not with you.
