She-Devil (1989)
Ruth: Poor Bob. I almost felt sorry for him. Almost.

Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: I have been sorry my whole life, and from the looks of it, so have you.

Nicolette: What about our clothes?
Ruth: Gone.
Andy Patchett: What about my toys?
Ruth: Gone.
Nicolette: What about my tapes?
Ruth: Gone, everything is gone.

Ruth: Andy, Nicolette, this is your new home.

Ruth: [to Mary] Oh, I'm so sorry.

Ruth: [narrating] Some women are born beautiful. They make it look easy. But most women have to put a little time and effort into their appearance, and then there are those of us who need all the help we can get, like me.

Bob: Okay Ruth, I'll give you a few days, then you've got to come back for the kids. Where can I reach you?
Ruth: I'm not coming back, Bob, they'll have a much better life here with you.
Bob: Wait a minute, Ruth, where're you going?
Ruth: I don't know, Bob, into my future I guess.

Ruth: I would have to get used to being alone now. It's not easy for a mother to be separated from her children. I'll bet Mary Fisher's mother feels the same way. Maybe I can help old Mrs. Fisher get reacquainted with her daughter. But first, I would need a new name.

Ruth: [switching the nursing home's sedatives with energy pills] Mary Fisher's mother had been enjoying a long, untroubled sleep. It was time to wake her up.

Hooper: What is going on here?
Ruth: Oh, isn't it wonderful?
Hooper: I know what you've been doing! The vitamins, the workouts, it's against the rules! I'm going to report you to Mrs. Trumper and then you'll be sorry.
Ruth: Oh I don't think so, I HAVE been sorry my whole life and by the looks of it, so have you, so you do whatever you want. It's a shame though, Hooper, I always thought that women like us should stick together. Let's go! Kick that ball!

Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: [picks up Mary Fisher's book] Mary Fisher, any relation?
Mrs. Fisher: My daughter.
Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: Oh how nice.
Mrs. Fisher: She's a slut. Bitch keeps me in this dogpound while she lives the life of a princess in her gar damn mansion!
Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: Well that doesn't seem fair.
Mrs. Fisher: Yeah I ought to drop in on her one day, that'd scare the shit out of her.
Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: You have rights, if you wanted to go see your daughter nobody could stop you.
Mrs. Fisher: I'm too old.
Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: You are a mature and vibrant woman, and don't you let anybody tell you anything different.
Mrs. Fisher: Yeah? I suppose I could go on Sunday afternoon.
Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: I'll put you on the train myself, and I'll even call ahead to make sure the butler knows you're coming.
Mrs. Fisher: Butler? I'll bet there's hanky panky there.
Ruth Patchett/Vesta Rose: Well there's only one way to find out.
