Claire Trevor Quotes:

Ken Childs: Keep talking, please keep talking; I'm frightened...
May Holst: Talking? Honey, you dont know what you're asking. Tell you a good joke on me: You know, I always dreaded the idea of becoming an old woman. And the way things look now, I won't have to worry about it any more. You know, I haven't been whistled at in years, and the idea of growing roses for the rest of my life is really beginning to haunt me. There oughta be a home for dames like me. Yup - we shoulda organized. You know, a house somewhere with no mirror in it, far away where we never have to look at a young girl. They have homes for unmarried mothers but everybody forgets about the girls who - who never quite managed to make things legal. I think I could start one! Yeah - I could call it the May Holst Home for Broken-Down Broads. I kind of like that, don't you?


Laura Benson: There's a nice old lady over there in a millinery shop. You won't even need a gun. Just show her your face, and she'll give you the whole store.


Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: What's happened?
Eddie Ellison: Well, the breadwinners have stopped winning.
Larry Scott: Yeah, looks like we're in for a little vacation.
Jane Scott: You mean you were discharged.
Eddie Ellison: Well, not exactly. We were canned.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: But they can't let you off for nothing.
Eddie Ellison: No. I know they can't. But they did. Welch saw to that.
Jane Scott: Who's Welch?
Larry Scott: Well, he's an old friend of ours.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Will you excuse us for a minute? I want to talk to Eddie alone.
[Eddie and Kay go into the next room]
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Now listen, Eddie. When we were married we said we'd go 50-50 on everything, didn't we?
Eddie Ellison: Uh-huh.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Well, that meant joy and trouble, too. You always let me in on the joy, now. Why not the trouble?
Eddie Ellison: There's nothing more to tell.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Eddie, look at me. Did Larry have anything to do with this?
Eddie Ellison: No.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Well, then. We haven't a thing to worry about.
