QUOTES

Blanche: They told me to take a street-car named Desire... (p15)

Stanley: Whatís a rhinestone? Stella: Next door to glass. (p36)

Blanche: Iím sorry, but I havenít noticed the stamp of genius even on Stanleyís forehead. (p50)

Mitch: Poker shouldnít be played in the house with women. (p58)

Stanley: Stell-lahhhhhhh! (p59)

Blanche: What youíre talking about is brutal desire-just-Desire! - the name of that rattle-trap of a street-car that bangs through the Quarter, up one old narrow street and down another. (p70)

Blanche: Thousands of years have passed him right by, and there he is-Stanley Kowalski!-surivivor of the stone age! Bearing the raw meat home from the kill in the jungle! And you-you here-waiting for him! Maybe heíll strike you or maybe grunt and kiss you! That is, if kisses have been discovered yet! Night falls and the other apes gather! There in the front of the cave, all grunting like him, and swilling and gnawing and hulking! His poker night!-you call it-this party of apes! Somebody growls-some creature snatches something- the fight is on! God! Maybe we are a long way from being made in Godís image, but Stella-my sister-there has been some progress since then! (p72)


Stanley: Donít ever talk that way to me! "Pig-Polack-disgusting- vulgar-greasy!"-them kind of words have been on your tongue and your sisterís been too much around here! What do you two think you are? A pair of queens? Remember what Huey Long said-"Every Man is a King!" And I am the king around here, so donít forget it! (p107)

Stanley: Weíve had this date with each other from the beginning. (p130)

Stella: I couldnít believe her story and go on living with Stanley. (p133)

Steve: This game is seven card stud. (p142)
