Anthony J. Drexel Biddle: Cordelia, sometimes you amaze me!
Mrs. Cordelia Biddle: Well, I hope so, Anthony.


Mrs. Duke: [singing] There are those whose social standing is constantly demanding. Every single thing we do, the public knows... Then there is a lower strata, where propriety doesn't matter. I suppose, there are those, there are those.
Aunt Mary Drexel: [singing] There are those to whom position is a natural born condition, to be worn with ease like comfortable old clothes. Though the nouveau riche deny it, all their money cannot buy it! Class will out. Goodness knows, but there are those.
Mrs. Duke: There are those who grace the pages of the blue book.
Aunt Mary Drexel: Never heard of it. Is it a new book?
Mrs. Duke: Simply anybody who *is* anybody is listed.
Aunt Mary Drexel: Oh, you mean the New York telephone directory.


Mrs. Worth: [to George the alligator] Big ugly beast! You'd be a handbag if I had my way.
