Am I Pretty?

Oh, Mama, that's not what I mean. 
What I mean is: am I pretty? 

I've already told you, yes. 
Now that's enough of that. 
You have a nice young pretty face. 
I never heard of such foolishness.

But, Mama, you've got to say something about me. 
Am I pretty get anybody...
to get people interested in me? 
Emily, you make me tired. Now stop it. 
You're pretty enough for all normal purposes 

Oh, Mama, you're no help at all.

from "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder
