Quotes from

Amy Lind: There's something about the country air.
Biff Grimes: Hm?
Amy Lind: I said, there's something about the country air.
Biff Grimes: I like city air.
Amy Lind: Well... there really isn't any difference between city air and country air. They're both hydrogen, and oxygen, and -...
Biff Grimes: Air! You can't even see it, so why talk about it?


Biff Grimes: I'm gonna have a smoke.
Amy Lind: May I have one too, please?
Biff Grimes: Oh, sure. Hey! Don't tell me you smoke!
Amy Lind: Only when I'm bored.
Biff Grimes: Well, your mother's a bloomer girl, you're a nicotine fiend, are there any more at home like you?
Amy Lind: I have an aunt who's an actress.
Biff Grimes: Well, that completes the picture. I've been around, they can say an awful lot of things about Biff Grimes, but not that he ever gave a cigarette to a girl.


Amy Lind: [Amy accuses her of asking Hugo out without being properly introduced]
Virginia Brush: Why I never did any such thing! I simply happened to mention that I was in habit of taking walks in the park with my girlfriend. And besides in moral I didn't wink.
Amy Lind: Don't be a hypocrite, Virginia. Spiritually, you winked.

Ann Sheridan was originally cast as Virginia Brush but became involved in an acrimonious salary dispute with Warner Brothers. The studio borrowed Rita Hayworth from Columbia, whose career was foundering with clinkers like Blondie on a Budget, and "The Strawberry Blonde" became a big boost to her career. Jack L. Warner liked her work so much that he immediately used her again in another romantic comedy, Affectionately Yours.
