Movie Quote of the Day – The Old Maid, 1939 (dir. Edmund Goulding)
Tina: I’ll go, but before I go, you’ve got to know that I’m sick your spying and fault-finding and meddling–
Delia Lovell: No, Tina!
Tina: You can say what you want to me Mummy, because you understand me and I love you. But she’s just a sour old maid who hates me–
Delia Lovell: Tina!
Tina: –because I’m young and attractive and in love, while she’s old and hideous and dried up and has never known anything about love!
