- Elinor Bentley: What kind of a kiss do you perform?
- Alexander "Lucky" Downing: You mean there's more than one kind?
- Elinor Bentley: I thought you were a college man.
- Alexander "Lucky" Downing: Oh, I guess I was too busy studying chemical experiments to learn more than just plain old every day kissing.
- Elinor Bentley: Suppose we try that?
- Alexander "Lucky" Downing: Well, all right. [Kisses her lightly on the cheek] Goodnight.
- Elinor Bentley: You must have been a whiz at chemistry.
- Clarence: Boss, if you hear something whizzing by you, it'll be me.
- Alexander "Lucky" Downing: Why, Clarence, don't tell me you're afraid.
- Clarence: I ain't afraid, but my feets ain't gonna stand around and see my body abused.
