See Cousin Bobby

Big Papa

Li'l Bit's grandfather, the father of her mother and Aunt Mary, is a crude, offensive man who expects to be waited on by his wife. He is proud of the fact that he came and took his wife away, when she was fourteen, against her family's objections. His wife describes him as a big bull, wanting sex every morning and every evening and even coming home at lunch for it. Early in the play, the family jokes about Li'l Bit's developing breasts when she is seventeen, and her grandfather keeps making derogatory comments about what a waste it is for her to go to college: "What does she need to go to college for?" "She's got all the credentials she needs on her chest—" and "How is Shakespeare going to help her lie on her back in the dark?"
