In Scene 2, Blanche tells Stanley that "a woman's charm is fifty percent illusion." She explains that is the reason that she fibs a lot, to create an illusion that is attractive. However, she does claim that when something is important, a woman - herself included - will always resort to the truth. In other words, a woman knows between right and wrong. Blanche explains that she knows she fibs a lot, because “after all, a woman’s charm is fifty percent illusion,” but when something is important she always tells the truth. The truth that Blanche shares is what she has already told - that the estate was lost, not sold. She shares with him the papers, and explains the mismanagement of funds and slow decline of the estate.
