Little Women

Marmee March has four children: Meg, the sensible one, Josephine, the tomboyish writer with a lust for life, Beth, the so-called shy girl who has enough extroversion in her to go to a poor family's house, and Amy, the extroverted loudmouthed selfish girl who loves art. Together they brave their poor surroundings (haha, they think it is poor) and survive without the man of the house. Meanwhile, trying to insinuate himself into their lives is Laurie, a good looking very rich neighbor who is being tutored by another good looking man who fancies Meg. Laurie loves Jo and Amy is jealous. The girls do little betrayals to each other but still love each other in the end.

Laurie: Hello! Jo! Come over here. You too, Meg. It's dull as tombs around here.

Trivia: In reality the girls' father, Amos Bronson Alcott, was never in the war nor wounded. However, Jo (Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women) was a nurse in Washington D.C. in 1862 and when she fell ill it was her father who had to go to Washington to get her.

Question: When Amy is told that she cannot go to the opera with Meg and Jo, Beth tells Amy, "Evangeline and I will make you some ginger tea." The cook/maid's name is listed as Hannah in the cast credits, and she is referred to by the name of Hannah a few times in the movie. Who is Evangeline?

Sandyjeanie

Chosen answer: Evangeline is their cat.

Answer: The cat is named Evangeline. She's holding her while she says that line.

So the cat named Evangeline is going to make tea for Amy?

Sandyjeanie

Not literally. She was just humanizing her cat. It's something people do, just like how you can buy greeting cards "from the cat" or "from the dog."

Beth was trying to be funny by saying the cat would help make the tea.
