Connie Allenbury[edit]

  • You can't build a life on hate, or a marriage on spite. Marriage is too important. Mine only lasted an hour, but... I know.
  • Women can't fool women about men.

Warren Haggerty[edit]

  • She may be his wife, but she's engaged to me!

Dialogue[edit]

Warren: Would I ask you to do this thing for me if I didn't consider you practically my wife?
Gladys: Would you ask your wife to hook up with that ape?
Bill: The ape objects.

Warren: Gladys, do you want me to kill myself?
Gladys: Did you change your insurance?

Mr. Allenbury: That man is a first class angler!
Connie: If he's first class, I'm traveling steerage.

Harvey: What'll we use for a headline?
Warren: I don't care. Anything. "War threatens Europe!"
Harvey: Which country?
Warren: Flip a nickel!

Gladys: Can't you go any faster?
Cab Driver: I can, but the cab can't.

Bill: I thought that was rather clever of me.
Connie: Yes, I thought you thought so.
