Susan Vance: Where's what?
David Huxley: My intercostal clavicle!
Susan Vance: You're what?
David Huxley: My bone. It's rare. It's precious. What did you do with it?
David Huxley: Well if you planned it, you couldn't have ruined my chances more completely. You told your aunt I was crazy didn't you? You told her my name was Bone and you didn't tell me.

The script contains an expression that was very common in the USA up until about the 1950s that by today's standards is absolutely unbelievable and (thankfully) would never be used today. In the first scene, when Alice tells Cary Grant's character that "Mr. Peabody may possibly donate a million dollars to the museum", he responds "A million dollars?

Katharine Hepburn was generally fearless around the young leopard 'Nissa (II)' who played "Baby" and even enjoyed petting it. Cary Grant was less fond of the big cat and a double was used in the scenes where his character and the leopard had to make contact.
