Quote #4

RUTH (Who hadn’t thought of that)
Oh – Well, they bound to fit something in the whole house. Anyhow, they was too good a bargain to pass up. (RUTH slaps her head, suddenly remembering something) Oh, Bennie – I meant to put a special note on that carton over there. That’s your mama’s good china and she wants ‘em to be very careful with it. (2.3.5)

In her excitement for the new house, Ruth bought new curtains without worrying about the size of the windows. Ruth is very excited to decorate the new space and make the house truly theirs.
