Notable dialogueEdit

Elsie Howard: "I was quite something when I was young. I could have had any feller I wanted. They used to queue up just to take me 'ome from work. An' the dances... wallflower? I didn't even know the meaning of the word. Gail and Suzie... they don't know anything. 'Ow I ever come to marry a nothin' like Arnold Tanner I shall never know. Yes I do, it's a mistake thousands of young girls make and live to regret it. But you know I... I could 'ave done anythin', gone anywhere. Not just with fellers, but... life in general. I was a fighter... You know, all I once thought I was is not there any more. I keep lookin' at meself from the outside... seein' meself as... as other people do. It's lousy... Terrifying!"


Elsie Howard: "I walked down that street last night, pourin' with rain, cryin' me eyes out... for a girl I once knew who 'ad guts, and hope... only she's dead now. And I don't... I don't know quite when it was she died."
