And here's to the girls who just watch.
Aren't they the best?
When they get depressed, it's a bottle of Scotch
Plus a little jest.
Another chance to disapprove,
Another brilliant zinger.
Another reason not to move,
Another vodka stinger.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa— I'll drink to that.
— Joanne, Company, "The Ladies Who Lunch"
All my co-stars cry out, "Put on your shoes!"
Who the hell drank all the booze?
And when I get drunk, the audience applauds!
Stritch, Stritch, Stritch!
I'm the queen of Broadway's boozing broads!
— Forbidden Broadway, "Stritch"
Julia: Hi, Richard! (She lifts her glass in drunken salute)
Richard (in a low tone): Will you stop drinking?
Julia (in a voice just as high as his was low): Will I stop drinking? No, I won't stop drinking!
— Merrily We Roll Along (play by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart)
