EVE: I'd like anything Miss Channing played in...
MARGO: Would you, really? How sweet.
LLOYD: I doubt very much that you'd like her in The Hairy Ape.
EVE: Please, don't misunderstand me, Mr. Richards. I think that part of Miss
Channing's greatness lies in her ability to pick the best plays... your new play is for Miss Channing, isn't it?
Eve has a childlike blind admiration for Margo that Lloyd definitely doesn't share. However, Eve is capable of showing that she admires Lloyd, too, flattering two people for the price of one.
