Quotes from

Bake Baker: [singing] I've been a roaming Romeo. My Juliet's have been many. But now my roaming days have gone. Too many irons in the fire is worse than not having any. I've had my share and from now on... I'm putting all my eggs in one basket. I'm betting everything I've got on you. I'm giving all my love to one baby. Heaven help me if my baby don't come through. I've got a great big amount saved up in my love account. Honey, and I've decided, love divided in two won't do. So I'm putting all my eggs in one basket. I'm betting everything I've got on you.


Bilge Smith: So that's why you joined the navy -- you thought a torpedo would be easier to dodge than the shotgun.


Bilge Smith: If you and your nautical nitwits in the liberty party are going to give the girls of 'Frisco their big break -- you better shove off. We've dropped anchor.
