  • Blanche: Did you have a nice drive?

    Jane: What are you talking about?

    Blanche: Nothing dear, I... it's been so long since you were out of the house I thought perhaps you had gone for a drive or something. You know I was thinking, it's ever so long since we had a talk, you know, a real talk about the future and everything. Jane, I didn't want you to be worried about the house, even if I do have to sell it, we'll still be together.

    Jane: Blanche you're not gonna sell this house. Daddy bought this house, and he bought it for me! You don't think I remember that, do you?

    Jane: You don't think I remember anything, do you? There are a whole lot of things I remember. And you never paid for this house. Baby Jane Hudson made the money that paid for this house, that's who!

  • Jane: You know, we're right back where we started. When I was on the stage you had to depend on me for everything. Even the food you ate came from me. Now you have to depend on me for your food again. So, you see, we're right back where we started.

    Blanche: Why are you doing this to me? Why?

    Jane: Doing what?

    Blanche: Making me afraid to eat. Trying to make me starve myself.

    Jane: Don't be silly. If you starve you die.

  • Blanche: Jane, did you ever stop to think that - if anything happened to me, I mean anything bad, there wouldn't be any money for you? I wouldn't be here to sign the checks. You wouldn't even have pocket money. Did you ever think of that?

    Jane: Yeah, I've thought about that.

  • Blanche: Oh, please, Jane. I'm so hungry.

    Jane: I have to go now.

    Blanche: Just a little - please!

    Jane: No! You didn't eat your din-din, so you'll have to wait till lunchtime.

  • Blanche: I was just hoping, maybe, maybe I could meet him and we could have a nice talk - just the three of us.
