Meredith Potter: Does everybody know everybody? Well, if you don't, you will. And you all know me, or what they say about me, and all of that is true.

Rose: What'll become of her, Bunny?

[Shakes the unconscious Stella]

Rose: What will become of you? If you're lucky, you'll end up like me, at least me. I was as silly as you in a lot of ways, still am. A sickness, my girl, being something else.

Rose: Came to the right place for it, I'll say that.

Meredith Potter: [During rehearsal] What do you think the play's about, Stella?

Stella: [pauses] Love.

Meredith Potter: I think it's about Time. I think we're all mourners at a funeral procession and that some of us have simply dropped behind to tie a shoelace. Contact with the beloved is suspended, but the dead are still there, so to those who we think we love, just around a dangerous corner, waiting to be caught up with.
