Dear all, once Audrey Hepburn said:

“a frightened mouse who never delivered,
even if she grabbed the fifty-dollar bills"

about her famous character Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. How does "delivered" mean in this context? Note that Holly was a prostitute, but also a delicate girl.

Thank you for helping
