Carol Channing Quotes:

Muzzy Van Hossmere: [seeing Millie in tears] Oh! Moderns don't cry.
Millie Dillmount: No. No, of course not.
Muzzy Van Hossmere: Now Millie, I must apologize for my guest. Judith is a rude and spoiled young lady. You must not let her upset you.
Millie Dillmount: Oh Muzzy, I'm so mixed up, so confused. It's not only Miss Tremaine, though she did read me right. I am a working girl, and a boob.
Muzzy Van Hossmere: Well, there's certainly nothing wrong with being a working girl. I was a working girl myself in the chorus, but I wasn't a boob.
Millie Dillmount: No, you married well, and that's exactly my plan, and I've got to stick to it.
Muzzy Van Hossmere: Jimmy told me your plans, Millie, to marry your boss.
[Millie nods yes]
Muzzy Van Hossmere: Love has nothing to do with it?
Millie Dillmount: Yes, Ma'am, I'm a modern.
Muzzy Van Hossmere: You're a boob.


Flo Banks: [singing] Skidoo! Skidoo! Between a one and three, there is a two!


[after doing loop de loops in the air, Muzzy has just gotten off the bi-plane with her flying instructor, Baron Richter]
Muzzy Van Hossmere: [rubbing her ears] You know, Baron Richter, those loop de loops are beginning to affect my inner ear. They really are.
[Baron Richter grabs Muzzy, dips her then kisses her]
Muzzy Van Hossmere: [grabbing her cleared ears in amazement] Why Baron Richter, you're perfectly marvelous.
[Baron Richter stands at attention in acknowledgment]
Muzzy Van Hossmere: And to think we were against you in the late war.

Carol Channing Facts
In 1986-87, toured in the play "Legends" with Mary Martin, the subject of an excellent, highly amusing book by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright James Kirkwood Jr., "Diary of a Mad Playwright: Perilous Adventures on the Road with Mary Martin and Carol Channing". Despite the pressures, Kirkwood describes Channing as a true professional and a joy to work with.

She donated a dress she wore in the stage production of "Hello, Dolly!" to the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institute.

An outspoken liberal Democrat, Channing's name was included in Richard Nixon's now-famous "enemies list", and she has said that was the highest honor in her career.
