Crimes of the Heart

Genre: Comedy, Drama

Chick Boyle:
Lennie! You who, Lennie! Well this is just too awful. How I'm gonna continue to hold my head high in this community, I do not know. Did you get those pantyhose I asked you to?

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
They're in the sack.

Chick Boyle:
Now daddy has called twice already. He says we gotta get ourselves to town to help out with this thing with Babe before they change their simple minds.

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
I was sorta hoping' that Meg would call. I sent her a telegram about Babe.

Chick Boyle:
A telegram? Couldn't you just phone her up or something?

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
No, I couldn't because her phone was out of order.

Chick Boyle:
Out of order?

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
That's right. It was disconnected. I don't know...

Chick Boyle:
Now that sounds just like Meg. What all did you say to her in this telegram?

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
Well, I just told her to come on home.

Chick Boyle:
To come on home? Lennie, have you lost your only mind or what? Babe is gonna be incurring mighty negative publicity in this town and Meg's appearance isn't gonna help things out one bit.

[indicating the pantyhose]

Chick Boyle:
These are awful snug. Did you get my right size?

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
Well let's see, I think they're... size extra petite.

Chick Boyle:
Well they are scrimping on the nylon material. Anyway, Meg is known all over Copiah County as cheap Christmas trash. Why the whole town knows about her sordid dealings with Doc Porter and leaving him a cripple.

Lennora Josephine 'Lenny' Magrath:
A cripple? He's got a limp, he barely has a limp!
