The Glass Menagerie
"When I had that attack of pleurosis – he asked me what was the matter when I came back." (2.45, Laura).
Laura utters a startled, doubtful laugh. She reaches quickly for a piece of glass. (Scene Two, stage directions).
[in a tone of frightened apology]: "I’m crippled!"
"Nonsense, Laura, I’ve told you never, never to use that word." (2.47-2.50, Laura and Amanda).
