Quotes from

Richard Sumner: I'll bet you write beautiful letters.


Ruthie Saylor: [Talking about Richard Sumner as he tape measures the office] Do you think we're being redecorated?
Sylvia Blair: Does he look like an interior decorator to you?
Peg Costello: No. He looks like one of those men who suddenly switched to vodka!


Bunny Watson: Oh, I remember what: my other bottle of champagne.
Peg Costello: If you take that champagne back to Legal, you won't even get another swallow.
Bunny Watson: That's right. Maybe I'd better drink it right here. Join me, Peg?
Peg Costello: Certainly. How does champagne go with Four Roses, Scotch, Martinis, and Bloody Marys?
Bunny Watson: Oh, fine. They're all the same base: alcohol.
