Lola: I took the zing out of the King of Siam. / I took the starch out of the sails of the Prince of Wales. / It's no great art gettin' the heart of a man on a silver platter. / A little brains, a little talent with an emphasis on the latter!

Lola: Joe, would you like to take Lola some place tonight?
Joe Hardy: Gee, I - I sure would like to but, uh, you know what Mr. Van Buren would say.
Lola: He'd say you lucky boy.
Joe Hardy: No, no! He'd say it's late. He likes us to get to bed early.

Mr. Applegate: Have a nice trip?
Lola: Perfect. The plane crashed in Cleveland.
Mr. Applegate: Good. Now about that job in Chicago.
Lola: Just dandy. I got the old boy to embezzle 100,000 dollars and lost it for him at the race track. Then his wife left him and he took to drink. I told him I was through and he jumped out the window... twenty second story.
Mr. Applegate: That's high enough, that's fine.
Lola: I wanna try the Empire State Building on this next one.
