The Bald Soprano Isolation Quotes

How we cite our quotes: Citations follow this format: (Line). Every time a character talks counts as one line, even if what they say turns into a long monologue. We used Donald M. Allen's translation.

Quote #10

Mr. Smith: "An Englishman's home is truly his castle."
Mrs. Smith: "I don't know enough Spanish to make myself understood." (498-499)

The play ends with a long chain of non-sequiturs. Basically, the characters spout a lot of stuff that doesn't seem to be connected in anyway. In some ways, they barely seem to be communicating at all. This lack of communication could be seen as an indication that they are all quite isolated.
