Maggie McNamara Quotes:

Donald Gresham: Why are you so preoccupied with sex?
Patty O'Neill: Who, me?
Donald Gresham: Yes, you.
Patty O'Neill: You really think I am?
Donald Gresham: Well, you are always asking if people plan seduction or they're bored with virgins or they have a mistress... Now, if that isn't being preoccupied with sex, I'd like to know what is.
Patty O'Neill: You may be right.
[pauses momentarily]
Patty O'Neill: But don't you think it's better for a girl to be preoccupied with sex than occupied?

Patty O'Neill: Oh, I know! Let's not go out. Let's fix dinner up here. I am simply a sensational cook.
Donald Gresham: Well, unfortunately I haven't any sensational food.
Patty O'Neill: Oh, you must have something.
[opens the icebox]
Patty O'Neill: I thought you surely must have some leftovers. You know, what I can do with leftovers is nobody's business! Do you like kadguree?
Donald Gresham: I beg your pardon?
Patty O'Neill: Kadguree. It's made with finnan haddie. Do you have any finnan haddie?
Donald Gresham: I wouldn't be found dead with finnan haddie.
Patty O'Neill: Aw, that's an awful thing to say. You haven't even tasted it. It's delicious.

Donald Gresham: [In the taxi, on the way to his apartment] You won't mind coming up, will you?
Patty O'Neill: I am not so sure. Will you try to seduce me?
Donald Gresham: I, I don't know. Probably. why?
Patty O'Neill: Why? A girl wants to know.
Donald Gresham: A girl is supposed to be intuitive about those things. You don't go around bluntly asking questions like that.
Patty O'Neill: I do. I always do.
Donald Gresham: And what happens if they say yes, they are going to try to seduce you.
Patty O'Neill: I generally believe them. And then I am out one dinner.
Donald Gresham: And if they say their intentions are honorable?
Patty O'Neill: I generally believe that. But you get fooled some times. I hate men like that. I mean, after all, they are lots of girls who don't mind being seduced. Why pick on those who do?
Donald Gresham: OK, I won't make a single pass at you. Do you believe me?
Patty O'Neill: Yes. Yes, I do. You're nice. I like you.
Donald Gresham: I could be lying.
Patty O'Neill: That's true. Are you?
Donald Gresham: I don't know. I've never run up against anybody like you before.
Patty O'Neill: How nice!
Donald Gresham: But I won't take an oath that I am not going to kiss you.
Patty O'Neill: Oh, that's alright. Kissing's fine. I have no objection to that.
