Claudette Nevins: Claire Hopkins.

Kate: Elaine and I just don't see as much of each other as we used to. Happens in friendships all the time. Mrs. Hanley: Not in mine. And if you ask me, you'll find out soon enough you threw out a silk purse for a sow's ear. Kate: Lucky for me, I didn't ask you. Kate: Elaine, you're smoking! After 5 years -- I don't believe it! Elaine: Well, it's one of the fringe benefits of having a husband who walks out on you. I have managed to get back up to 2 packs a day in only 6 weeks. Kate: 6 weeks? I can't believe it's that long since we've seen each other. Elaine: You're right, it isn't. It's 8 weeks. Doug: Mrs. Hogan? Annie: Yeah, she came while you were out. It's nice to see her around again. Doug: Yes, it is. Annie: Of all of Kate's friends, I think I like her best. Doug: Me too. Annie: What do you think of Mrs. Hopkins? Doug: Claire? Annie: That's the one. Doug: She's, uh... she's very nice. Annie: You can do better than that. Doug: I guess you don't like her very much. Annie: No... Doug: Why not? Annie: Well, it's hard to explain, exactly... But I've got the feeling she's not the one to be on the Titanic with. Elaine: What do I do, in the meantime? Kate: What you've always done. Elaine: Fred's shirts? Well, that's out -- he's found a younger laundress.
