Quotes from

Mike: Mr Kittredge, it may interest you to know that our so-called affair consisted of exactly two kisses and one rather late swim both of which I thoroughly enjoyed and the memory of which I wouldn't part with for anything. After which I returned here, carried her to her room, deposited her on her bed and promptly returned here which you will no doubt remember.
George Kittredge: That's all?
Mike: That's all.
Tracy: Why? Was I so cold? So forbidding?
Mike: Not at all. On the contrary but you were somewhat the worse or the better for the wine and there are rules about such things.


Tracy: Help me off the pedestal.
Seth Lord: Watch out for that first step, it's quite a tumble.


Tracy: Caroline Lord, if you put this picture in my wedding presents once more I am going to personally chain you to your bed.
