prêt-a-portieres



Scarlett: I'm so thin and so pale, Mammy. And I haven't got any clothes!

Suddenly she straightens up as she catches a glimpse of the portieres hanging at the windows. She swings around abruptly and walks to them.

Scarlett: (fingering the material) Scoot up to the attic and get Ma's old box of dress patterns, Mammy.

Mammy: Whut you up ter wid Miss Ellen's po'teers?

Scarlett: You're going to make me a new dress.

Mammy: Not outta Miss Ellen's po'teers! Not while Ah got bref in mah body!

Scarlett: Great balls of fire! They're MY portieres now! (She jerks down the portieres, pole and all; drapes the material over her shoulder; turns back to Mammy)

I'm going to Atlanta for that three hundred dollars, and I've got to go looking like Carol Burnett from her Gone With the Wind episode!
