Dirty Gypsy trash!
She's a disgrace to the town.
She laughed at my wedding and made dirty remarks at my Manuelito.
[Carmen spits at her. The bride's mother slaps her, and Carmen pushes her, knocking over a jar of milk]
Did you see what she did?
And the milk! See what she's done to the milk?
I spit in you milk!
And the milk of your old turtle of a mother!

...And at the zenith of her 'love goddess' period. This films is a literal (and completely non-musical) version of the Carmen story. When Rita dances in the film (and she does dance!)-- she is always hidden from the camera/audience--as a way of saying: love goddess at work--no frills necessary. Even so, she makes Carmen truly naughty--so much so that you wonder that she lives as long as she does. Carmen is a woman with more than the necessary number of tragic flaws. Rita makes her beautiful and vibrant--but tragic nevertheless.
