A View from the Bridge Men and Masculinity Quotes

How we cite our quotes: Citations follow this format: (Act.Line). Every time a character talks counts as one line, even if what they say turns into a long monologue.

Quote #1

Eddie: "The guy ain't right." (1.527)

This is pretty much Eddie's favorite thing to say about Rodolfo. Does he repeat it because he thinks it's true, or because he's trying to convince himself?

Quote #2

Eddie: "if you close the paper fast, you could blow him over." (1.535)

Let's play a game. How many creative ways can Eddie come up with to say that Rodolfo is gay?

Quote #3

Eddie: "if you came in the house and you didn't know who was singin', you wouldn't be lookin for him you be lookin' for her."

Real men don't sing high? Unless, they're…um…tenors. Like most all the great Italian opera singers.
