Mrs. Peacock:
Well, someone's got to break the ice, and it might as well be me. I mean, I'm used to being a hostess, it's part of my husband's work. And it's always difficult when a group of new friends meet together for the first time, to get acquainted. So I'm perfectly prepared to start the ball rolling. I mean, I-I have absolutely no idea what we're doing here. Or what I'm doing here, or what this place is about, but I am determined to enjoy myself. And I'm very intrigued, and, oh my, this soup's delicious, isn't it?

Mrs. Peacock:
So, what do you do in Washington D.C., Mr. Green? Come on! What do you do? I mean, how are we to get acquainted if we don't say anything about ourselves.

Miss Scarlet:
Perhaps he doesn't wanna get acquainted with you.

Mrs. Peacock:
Well, I'm sure I don't know. But if I wasn't trying to keep the conversation going, then we would just be sitting here in an embarrassed silence.

Professor Plum:
Are you afraid of silence, Mrs. Peacock?

Mrs. Peacock:
Yes-What? No! Why?

Professor Plum:
Well, it just seems to me that you are. You seem to suffer from what we call "Pressure of Speech".

Miss Scarlet:
"We"? Who's we? Are you a shrink?

Professor Plum:
I do know a little bit about psychological medicine, yes.
