"Oh, 'The cross, the cross, let me kiss the cross.' With a Texas accent."

Well, I didn't know they took 'em out of stock, and they slam 'em on your head and it doesn't fit and the hair lace comes loose and they come up and glue it on just before the take and it falls off again--I was so horrible looking! Really, it was swful, I didn't look at all glamorous"
