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!

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.
