Cecile Caldwell: Shopping.

Bunny Caldwell: How do you do it? Where do you get your strength?

Bunny Caldwell: Oh, that's beautiful.

Bunny Caldwell: How dare you treat me with such disrespect! I got you off the streets and this is how you repay me?

Valmont (1989)
Madame de Volanges: Cecile! Martine!
Martine: Yes, Madame?
Madame de Volanges: Where is Cecile?
Martine: [nervously] Cecile? She's... she... she has...
Madame de Volanges: Where is she?
[Martine can't form an answer; Volanges, unable to find Cecile, rings for José]
Madame de Volanges: José, have you been at your post all night?
José: Yes, madame.
Madame de Volanges: Has anyone come in?
José: No, Madame.
Madame de Volanges: Martine?
Martine: [fearfully] Yes, Madame?
Madame de Volanges: Did she go and see that music teacher?
Martine: [hysterically] I don't know, Madame. She doesn't talk to me anymore. She only talks to Madame de Merteuil now. And she... she...
[Volanges turns to leave, Martine faints]

Madame de Volanges: Did I show you the cabinet I gave Cecile? It's an exquisite piece. Well, I told her: "You can lock all your secrets in there." Do you know what she said? "Maman, you know it will never be locked." Isn't that the sweetest thing a daughter can say to her mother?
Mertuil: Oh! Yes, yes.
Madame de Volanges: Well, it's locked.
Mertuil: Oh.
Madame de Volanges: I have a duplicate key of course.
Mertuil: Of course.
