Maggie McNamara Quotes:

Donald Gresham: [on the observation deck at the top of the Empire State building] Oh? What are you excited about?
Patty O'Neill: Coming up here. I wanted to for years.
Donald Gresham: Well then, why didn't you?
Patty O'Neill: Frankly, because I couldn't afford it. Can get a lovely pair of nylons for dollar twenty.


Patty O'Neill: Don't you ever eat meals up here?
Donald Gresham: Nope.
Patty O'Neill: No wonder you are so unhappy and maladjusted.
Donald Gresham: I am not a bit unhappy and my adjustment is just dandy!
Patty O'Neill: Well, I think it's awful to let this darling kitchen go to waste. This lovely icebox and stove. And that garbage disposal with nobody to use it. I want to cry, honestly.


Donald Gresham: Why are you so preoccupied with sex?
Patty O'Neill: Who, me?
Donald Gresham: Yes, you.
Patty O'Neill: You really think I am?
Donald Gresham: Well, you are always asking if people plan seduction or they're bored with virgins or they have a mistress... Now, if that isn't being preoccupied with sex, I'd like to know what is.
Patty O'Neill: You may be right.
[pauses momentarily]
Patty O'Neill: But don't you think it's better for a girl to be preoccupied with sex than occupied?
