Why Pearl Cleage knocks me out, part three

Because of dialogue like this:

JENNY: I told someone once that the music of Billie Holliday ran through my early life like a leitmotiv.

ALICE: What did he say?

JENNY: Why do you assume I was talking to a man?

ALICE: It’s a seduction line, Sister. I’m not that sick. What did he say?

JENNY: He said, “What’s a leitmotiv?”

(They both laugh)

From Hospice, one of the one act plays in 2 by Pearl.
