Maid to Order (1987) Poster


Valerie Perrine: Georgette Starkey



  • Georgette Starkey : [Early morning; Jessie is preparing to mop the Starkeys' floor]  Jessie...! I like to get this floor *really* shiny. So, in order to get it *completely* clean, it becomes necessary to get down on your hands and knees - and to scrub every little square inch by hand. No mop... Questions?

    Jessie Montgomery : Yeah. When's lunch?

    Georgette Starkey : For the help? There *is* no lunch, until and unless the work is done.

    Jessie Montgomery : [DELETED LINE - hours later, almost noon. Jessie is nearly finished scrubbing the floor by hand; it looks terrific]  ... Okay, last leg. Thank God she didn't ask me to use a toothbrush.

    Georgette Starkey : [DELETED LINE... she charges in, carrying - what else? - a toothbrush]  *Jessie!* I *apologize;* I forgot to tell you to use... Oh, are you finished already?

    Jessie Montgomery : [DELETED LINE - scrubbing the last square foot]  Just.

    Georgette Starkey : [DELETED LINE - handing her the toothbrush]  Well, that's okay; just start all over again. Bye now, I'm off...!

    [Jessie glares incredulously at the toothbrush. Then she kicks over the bucket of soapy water she's been using and, flustered, proceeds to toothbrush the entire floor]
