: There is a phrase in the play "The Women" by Clare Boothe Luce where a character says "I get it. Listen, there's no soap eating out your heart, sister!" What does that phrase mean? What is it's origin?

I can't explain it - or even understand it- but I went looking for quotes from "The Women" to track it down. Great fun, bitchy quotes, at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032143/quotes
