Belle Carter: [to Kit] Tell me, how is your new book coming along?

Kit Marlowe: Well, I write and I write, and I still don't like it.

Belle Carter: But, at least when you do turn one out, it's a gem! None of this grinding them out like sausage...

Belle Carter: [she realizes that she has just insulted Millie and pauses with embarrassment] I suppose I could cut my throat.

Millie Drake: [clearly offended] There's a knife on the table!

Kit Marlowe: [responding to a question about Millie's daughter Deidre] Well, she's really partly mine anyway. I was at the hospital when she was born. As a matter of fact, she gave me her first smile. Her mother said it was gas.

Kit Marlowe: I'd better get out of here, Millie, before I do something I'll be very sorry for.

Millie Drake: Yes, go! And if you think I want you to come back ever you're wrong! Well? why don't you go?

Kit Marlowe: In just a minute.

[She puts down her parcels, crosses the room, grabs Millie by the shoulders and shakes her violently, then shoves her so she falls on the sofa]

Kit Marlowe: Sorry.

[She picks up her things and exits, leaving Millie throwing a tantrum]

Kit Marlowe: Millie remembers the same things I do, that's important. For instance, she's the only person I know, who still remembers when I used to be called Chunky.

Preston Drake: I'd think you wouldn't want to remember that.

Kit Marlowe: But one does. Funny, one does.

Kit Marlowe: Deidre, come out from behind that screen.

[a pause]

Kit Marlowe: Deidre, come out, or do you want me to come back there and drag you out.

Deirdre Drake: [emerging from behind screen] How did you know I was there?

Kit Marlowe: My dear, I was hiding behind screens before you were born.
