Quotes from

Roger: Good morning, good morning. It's a great day out.
Philip Shayne: God, you're very happy, Roger. You'd better check that with Dr. Gruber, it might be something serious.
Roger: I had a wonderful night's rest. You know the trouble I have sleeping? Well, I've solved it. Just before you go to bed you put three tranquilizers in a jigger of brandy and you drink it. You still can't sleep but you're so relaxed that you don't worry about it. It was exhilarating.
Philip Shayne: Fancy that. And some people just go to sleep and never know what they're missing.
Philip Shayne: That's what I like about you, Roger. No matter what calamity befalls your fellow man you're still able to laugh about it.


Cathy Timberlake: How would you feel? Here I am, he practically runs me down and then drives right away! And doesn't have the decency to apologise himself. Furthermore I have a job interview and have to go like this. He doesn't care.
Roger: Ohhh...
Cathy Timberlake: You know what I'd like to do?
Roger: Throw the money in his face?
Cathy Timberlake: Exactly! I'd like to throw that money right in his face.
Roger: Would you?
Cathy Timberlake: Yes, I would.
Roger: I've waited seven years for this moment. You come with me!


Connie Emerson: [talking to Cathy] For 2000 years we've had their children, washed their clothes, cooked their meals and cleaned their houses. And what did they give us in return? The right to smoke in public. We sold out for a cigarette - and you don't even smoke!
