Jim Hardy: (trying to describe Linda) She was sort of a medium built, medium height. With a nice evening gown on with a belt in the back. She`s sorta built like the girl I knew from the corner drugstore who used to play pinball. Conshwella Schlepkiss. I remember she was high man three weeks in a row.
Mamie: (about winning Linda back) You could melt her heart right down to butter, if you`d only turn on the heat!
Linda Mason: You sound sweet, but you don`t make sense.
Ted Hanover: Then I had a drink. Jim Hardy: A drink? Boy you were fractured!
Danny Reed: François! Have you seen Mr. Hanover? François: Twice, sir. The first time he came from his dressing room he had a telegram in his hand. He ordered scotch and soda. A bottle of each. Danny Reed: I know! I know! François: The second time he came from his dressing room he asked which way is Connecticut. Danny Reed: Connecticut? François: Connecticut. He said he had a friend there who knows about women too. Danny Reed: Why didn`t you stop him? François: How can I stop him sir when I don`t know which way is Connecticut!
Ted Hanover: I like it here... with you and Linda. Jim Hardy: And we love having you. When are you leaving?
Danny Reed: How`d he get that far in five minutes? Ted Hanover: The lady must have been willing. Danny Reed: The world can`t do this to us!
Danny Reed: If I`m not the best manager in the business, I`ll eat a garage mechanic`s shirt!
Jim Hardy: For that kinda of money you oughta be able to go by way o` Medicine Hat!
Ted Hanover: It`s going to be easy - like peeling a turtle.
Linda Mason: What would you like? Danny Reed: Orchids, the finest you`ve got. Linda Mason: Corsage? Danny Reed: No, no. A dozen, loose, looking like they don`t care!
Mamie: Is your names Mamie? Daphne, Vanderbilt: No. Mamie: Get back in the kitchen! (later) Mamie: Is your names Miss Linda? Daphne, Vanderbilt: No.
Ted Hanover: (reading) Come out and relax on a farm, music, dancing, home cooking. Open holidays only. (skeptical) Ted Hanover: Open holiday`s only? Say, how many of them are there? Jim Hardy: (excited) About 15. That gives me 350 days to kick around in! Ted Hanover: (laughing) You would think of that!
Lila Dixon: (to Ted) I love you... and Jim. Ted Hanover: Well, I love Jim too... but let`s not get too chummy.
Lila Dixon: (about Jim) He gets a look. Ted Hanover: He always has that look! It doesn`t mean anything emotionally. It has something to do with his... liver.
Linda Mason: You better go inside, it`s cold and you don`t have a coat... (gently pushes him) Linda Mason: Go on. Jim Hardy: (kisses her, moves back) Well I don`t need a coat anymore.
Jim Hardy: What brings you here on this bright and uninviting day?
Ted Hanover: A gentle smile often breeds a kick in the pants.
