Carolyn Jones Quotes:

Tony Manetta: Oh you don't know this guy [his brother Mario]. He thinks any girl that's 21 years old and unmarried is no good.
Shirl: He'll love me. I was married when I was fifteen!


Shirl: I just got started. You think I wanna settle down with a 12-year old kid? Why do you think I left my husband? Him and his whole family kept bugging me day after day... have a baby, have a baby. Who needs a baby? I'm a baby myself. I wanna be free... have fun.
Tony Manetta: Who don't?
Shirl: You don't. You're not selfish enough.
Tony Manetta: You kidding? I'm the most selfish man in the world.
Shirl: Would you leave your kid?


Cathy Gray: [Sue is helping Cathy get ready] Pull it tighter Sue, pull it tighter, I want a waist like Anna Held.
Sue Allen: If I pull it any tighter you're not going to be able to breath.
Cathy Gray: Oh that's alright, I don't need much breath anyway, as my late friend Matty used to say, if a girl don't watch her figure the men won't.
Sue Allen: Matty? Wasn't that the man you were going to marry?
Cathy Gray: Yes but he hung himself instead.
[giggling]
Cathy Gray: Oh Matty was such a card.
Sue Allen: Well where's your new friend going to take you tonight?
Cathy Gray: To the Hauffman House for dinner, then to Tony Pastors for the vaudeville show.
Sue Allen: That sounds like fun.
Cathy Gray: Oh yeah he's a free spender alright, a little bit older than I like them, but awfully distinguished looking, I'm moving up
[stops and breaths in slowly]
Cathy Gray: , I'm moving up honey, no girl ever hits the jackpot till after she passes 14th street.
