The Glass Menagerie
"I haven't enjoyed one bite of this dinner because of your constant directions on how to eat it. It's you that make me rush through meals with your hawklike attention to every bite I take. Sickening - spoils my appetite - all this discussion of - animals' secretion - salivary glands - mastication!" (1.7, Tom).
"You smoke too much." (1.10, Amanda). Amanda constantly harps on Tom with orders and complaints.
"I know what’s coming!"
`"Yes, but let her tell it."
"She loves to tell it."
(1.17-1.20, Tom and Laura).
"It isn’t a flood, it’s not a tornado, Mother. I’m just not popular like you were in Blue Mountain." (1.38, Laura).
