] Hello, gorgeous.
: You think beautiful girls are going to stay in style forever? I should say not! Any minute now they're going to be out! Finished! Then it'll be my turn!
: I'd be happy to wait while you change. Fanny
: I'd have to change too much, nobody could wait that long.
: Where I come from, when two people... well, sort of love each other... oh, never mind. Nick Arnstein
: Well? What do they do when they "sort of love each other"? Fanny Brice
: Well, one of them says, "Why don't we get married?" Nick Arnstein
: Really? Fanny Brice
: Yeah, and sometimes it's even the man.

: I see him as he is. I love him as he is! Rose Brice
: Fanny. Love him a little less. Help him a little more.
: I'm a bagel on a plate full of onion rolls!
: "No law against waiting," I said, "people do it all the time." For once, I didn't say too much, I didn't say too little, I said just what I said and then walked.
: Miss Brice, do I have to remind you this is my theatre? Fanny Brice
: So what, nobody argues with the landlord?
: Flo! Flo, quit yelling or your ulcer will flare up. Florenz Ziegfeld
: That's funny coming from you, you gave me that ulcer!

: Bye, Nick.
