Quotes from

Col. Mark Cagle: [about Janine] She's an appealing dish no doubt. Most bad women are. One way or another, that's why they can be so successfully bad.


Joan Ross: When I started this crazy tour the last thing I was looking for was a man. Why I should pick on you, I don't know. After I know you better I may not like you. But I kept thinking about you and started looking for you. I phoned all over and Tony Bennis from the Paris embassy found out for me that you has come here. Michael, it's was exactly 11:45 a few days ago when you left me. What time is it now? Check both watches.
Mike Kells: Well, it's exactly 11:37.
Joan Ross: Do we resume? Heaven bless 11:37. I don't.
Mike Kells: , I'd like nothing better in the world, but right now I'm sort of... I... I... I'm... tied...
Joan Ross: All right, I'm gonna lay my cards on the table. Michael, tell me the truth. Are you with someone?
Mike Kells: [showing a photo of a woman] No. No, I'm chasing her. My dream girl.
Joan Ross: Can't be helped. Can't be helped, can it? I apologize to you Michael. I'm truly sorry.
Mike Kells: No, no, no. I'm only kidding about her. I'm only doing this for an acquaintance of a friend of mine. I promised to look her up and see about her.
Joan Ross: Do you have to see about her tonight?
Mike Kells: It doesn't look as though I can tonight.
Joan Ross: [leaning in] Darling! Let's explore Triste together!


Sgt. Ernie Guelvada: [about Mike seeing Joan] That puts it right in the line of duty. Unnh! Some duty!
