VIOLET: You gave that promotion to Bob Enright instead of me? I trained him for God’s sake! Oh, so it’s the old boys club. I’m going, but before I do, I have one more thing to say. Don’t you ever refer to me as your ‘girl’ again. I am no girl. I am a woman. W-O-M-Y-N! I’m not your wife, your mother or your mistress. I’m your employee and I expect to be treated equally, with a little dignity and a little respect! Oh, come off it, Doralee. Everyone knows you and Mr. Hart are having an affair.
