  • Mulligan : First time I saw a mouse trap catch a piece of cheese!
  • Harrigan: Mark that down, Garrity.


Peters: Did I hear somebody scream?
Kitty: Well, if you didn't, you oughta have your ears cleaned out!

Jack Marsden: Why is it something always happens when YOU'RE not here?
Peters: Unfortunate coincidence, sir.

Kitty: Why couldn't all of this have happened tomorrow?
Norma Denby: What difference would that make?
Kitty: Tomorrow's my day off!

Harrigan: What's this?
Kitty: That's a door.
