Long Day's Journey Into Night
Starts guiltily when she sees Tyrone – with dignity.
Dinner is served, Sir.
Raising her voice unnecessarily.
Dinner is served, Ma'am.
She forgets her dignity and addresses Tyrone with good-natured familiarity.
So you're here, are you? Well, well. Won't Bridget be in a rage! I told her the Madame said you wouldn't be home.
Then reading accusation in his eye.
Don't be looking at me that way. If I've a drop taken, I didn't steal it. I was invited.
She turns with huffy dignity and disappears through the back parlor. (3.1.113)
A sweet spectacle for me! My first-born, who I hoped would bear my name in honor and dignity, who showed such brilliant promise! (4.1.211)
Trying to control his sobs.
I've known about Mama so much longer than you. Never forget the first time I got wise. Caught her in the act with a hypo. Christ, I'd never dreamed before that any women but whores took dope! (4.1.194)
