Othello (1951)
Emilia: I have a thing for you.
Iago: A thing for me? It is a common thing...
Emilia: Ha?
Iago: To have a foolish wife.

Emilia: 'Tis not a year or two shows us a man. They're all but stomachs and we all but food. They eat us, hungrily, and when they are full, they belch us.

Emilia: I don't think it is the husbands' fault if wives do fall. Say that they slack their duties and pour our treasures into foreign laps or else break out in peevish jealousies, throwing restraint upon us. Or say they strike us. Well, we have gall and though we have some grace, yet have we some revenge. Let husbands know their wives have sense like them. They see and smell and have their palates both for sweet and sour, as husbands have. What is it that they do when they change us for others? Is it sport? I think it is. And doth affection breed it? I think it doth. Is 't frailty that thus errs? It is so too. And have not we affections, desires for sport, and frailty, as men have? Then let them use us well, else let them know, the ills we do, their ills instruct us so.


Omkara (2006)
Dolly Mishra: My grandmother used to say that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
Indu: What? My grandmother said that the way to a person's heart is area below the stomach!
