Quotes from

Fanny Skeffington: I find one should never look for admirers while at the same time one is falling to bits.

Job Skeffington: [to Fanny, when she reprimands him for being unfaithful] You mustn't be too harsh on my secretaries. They were always very understanding when I came to the office after a hard day at home.

[first lines]
Jim Conderley: Good evening, Soames!
Soames: Good evening, Mr. Conderley.
Jim Conderley: Afraid I'm a little early, aren't I?
Soames: Miss Trellis wasn't expecting anyone till 8 o'clock.
Jim Conderley: Well, I thought I'd come a little ahead of time; have a little chat with Miss Fanny.
Soames: Sorry, sir; she's still dressing.
Jim Conderley: All right, I'll wait.
