Birdie: What a story. Everything but the bloodhounds snapping at her rear end.
Margo: There are some human experiences that do not take place in a vaudeville house! And that even a fifth-rate vaudevillian should understand and respect. I want to apologise for Birdie.
Birdie: You don't have to apologise for me. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. It's just my way of talking.
Eve: You didn't hurt my feelings, Miss Coonan.
Birdie: Call me Birdie. And as for being fifth-rate, I closed the first half for eleven years, and you know it.
