Daddy Warbucks: Wait! There's something interesting in that woman's smile. I might learn to like her. Hang her in my bathroom.

Daddy Warbucks: It isn't all the same to me. Your old one's broken, this one's engraved, you didn't even look at it: 'To Annie, with love, from... Daddy Warbucks.
Annie: Mr. Warbucks, when my folks left me at the orphanage ten years ago, they left a note saying they'd come back to get me as soon as they could, and they kept the other half of this old locket so I'd know them when they came.
