What quotes do you think would be the best/most likely to be useful for the Drama & Prose exam for TKaM and a View from the Bridge?

It depends to be honest, I took a risk with these exams and only revised Alfieri and Boo a lot - and Boo came up in the exam! Regardless:


A View from the Bridge

Alfieri about Eddie: "a husky, slightly overweight longshore man"
Beatrice to Eddie about Catherine "You want something' else Eddie, and you can never have her!"
Beatrice to Eddie about their sexual relationship "When am I gonna be your wife again, Eddie?"
Rodolpho "I want to be an American!"
Marco's introduction "squire-built peasant"
Marco to Eddie "I spit in his face for all that he is!"
Marco about his children "They eat the sunlight dust"
Marco's stage instructions to Eddie "He raised the chair like a weapon over Eddie's head"
Catherine to Eddie as he's dying "Eddie, I never meant anything bad for you"
Eddie as he's dying: "My B!"


To Kill a Mockingbird

Commentator Scout: "He [Boo] was a malevolent phantom"
Atticus: "Mockingbirds don't do anything but sing their hearts out for us"
Atticus: "It's a sin to kill a mockingbird"
Scout to Atticus about Boo: "Well, it'd be like shooting' a mockingbird wouldn't it?"
Boo to Scout: "Will you take me home?"
Calpurnia about the children: "I won't let anyone say nothin' about my children"


That's all that I can think of right now, make sure to check the quotes and don't forget to speak about the meanings of them.

In TKAM you could use the use of "******-lover" i suppose, but that would be subject to a specific question..

I don't do TKAM but for A View from the Bridge:

Catherine
"Leave him finish, it's beautiful!"
"Her familiar world had shattered"
"I'm afraid of Eddie here"
"He was always the sweetest guy to me"
"He's a rat! He belongs in the sewer."
"Eddie, I never meant to do anything bad to you."

Alfieri
"It was only a passion that had moved into his body, like a stranger"
"Sometimes there is too much love for the daughter, too much love for the niece"
"Even those so understand will turn against you"
"But I will never forget how dark the room became when he looked at me; his eyes were like tunnels."
"He allowed himself to become wholly known and for that I think I will love him more than all my sensible clients"

Marco
"All the law is not in a book."
"chair raised like a weapon over Eddie's head"
"Animal! You go on your knees to me"

Eddie
"I want my respect"
"His face is puffed with trouble"
"A wife is supposed to believe the husband"
"He takes and puts his filthy hands on her like a goddam thief!"
"I want my name, Marco"
"My B.!"


Beatrice
"You're just jealous"
"She realizes there is a campaign solidified in him"
"You gonna keep her in the house all her life?"
"You want somethin' else, Eddie, and you can never have her"
"Whatever happened here we all done it"
