In Anne's and Helen's parents' discussion about putting Helen in an asylum, prostitutes are mentioned briefly as are "women who take after other girls" and teenage girls who were sent there to have babies they didn't want, many of whom had "diseases that you're not supposed to talk about".

Anne is smacked in the face by Helen with a doll and she spits out some blood from a broken off tooth.

Anne and Helen slap each other several times in a dining room brawl where Anne tries to teach Helen better table manners.

Mentioned that people in the asylum had DTs, possibly from alcoholism.
