Quotes from

Dan Milner: Where have you been? I looked for you all day.
Lenore Brent: I stayed in bed. "Nimrod" went hunting again.


[Saying goodbye]
Dan Milner: I'll see ya all of a sudden, Sam.


Myron Winton: [after he and the other guests have viewed one of Mark Cardigan's films] Yes sir, I agree with those folks: that was one of the finest movies I've ever seen. They oughta' make 'em ALL like that. None of this nonsense about social matters. People don't go to the movies to see how miserable the world is - they go there to eat popcorn and be happy!
Mark Cardigan: [Addressing Mr. Krafft] What did you think of it?
Martin Krafft: [Dourly] It had a message no pigeon would carry.
Mark Cardigan: [Slightly amused, turning to Mr. Winton] At my studios, all messages are handled by Western Union.
Myron Winton: You know, you can't take his opinion on anything: he's an *intellectual.*
[Cardigan responds with a look of mild alarm]
