“What man is suitable, doctor? She’s never found one. What man would ever look at me and say, ‘I want you.’? I’m fat. My mother doesn’t approve of dieting. Look at my shoes. My mother approves of sensible shoes. Look at the books on my shelves. My mother approves of good solid books. I’m my mother’s well-loved daughter. I’m her companion. I am my mother’s servant. My mother says! My mother. My mother! MY MOTHER!”

Bette Davis as Charlotte Vale in Now, Voyager (1942) dir. Irving Rapper
