: I know my daddy was naughty, but what about me?
: Darling, we have to get Lubby here an escort. Daphne Reynolds
: It's Libby, and why doesn't he just ask her himself?
: Oh, put a cork in it, Clarissa. Clarissa
: Maybe someone should've put a cork in it seventeen years ago.
: Now Daphne, we don't want to make a scene now, do we? Libby Reynolds
: Take your hand off my daughter or you won't get a scene, you'll get a Broadway Musical!
: Darling, darling, all I'm saying is before we let this hypothetical daughter blow your political career out of the water, we might at least consider doing some checking up on her. Henry Dashwood
: Now, checking up for what? Glynnis Payne
: I don't know... criminal record, blood type, triple sixes on her skull. Henry Dashwood
: Glynnis, she has a birth certificate, she has my photograph and she has my eyes.

: You'd have to get around the old bat somehow. She'd never allow it. Jocelyn Dashwood
: [Enters the room

: Who's Olivia Nixon? Glynnis Payne

: Yeah? Jocelyn Dashwood
: Good. Well, now we've got that settled... How about some tea and a nice piece of fruitcake? Henry Dashwood
: But your mother didn't feel I deserved the same consideration? Jocelyn Dashwood
] No to the fruitcake, then. Henry Dashwood
] How could she keep something like this from me? Glynnis Payne
: Excuse me, but what happened to the mistake theory we were operating on a moment ago? Daphne Reynolds
: [Daphne turns to leave
] Jocelyn Dashwood
: No, wait a minute, Ducky!
