Vantine: Well for the love of mud! Where am I sleeping - on a racetrack?

Dennis Morgan: Come on, lets have it. Who are you? Where'd you come from?
Vantine: Don't rush me, brother. I'm Pollyanna, the Glad Girl.

Dennis Morgan: Why'd you get off the boat at all? You know it doesn't stop here again for four week, don't you?
Vantine: Sure I do. Think I'm overjoyed about it? But, its just got to be, that's all.
Dennis Morgan: Well, then?

Dennis Morgan: What reason?
Vantine: I got mixed up in a little trouble and I thought I'd stay out of town 'til the Gendarmes forgot about it.

Vantine: I'll stay as comfortable as I like.

Vantine: [Taking a bath] What's the matter? Afraid I'll - shock the duchess? Don't you suppose she's ever seen a French postcard?
Dennis Morgan: You'll let those curtains down if its the last bath you'll ever take!

Dennis Morgan: [Naked, Vantine jumps in the rain barrel] Get out of there! Say what's the idea?
Vantine: What?
Dennis Morgan: Getting in that barrel?
Vantine: Oh, I don't know? Maybe I'm goin' over Niagara Falls. Whoop!

Barbara Willis: Do you mind if I stay here with you?
Vantine: Think you can stand the company?

Barbara Willis: It's stupid of me to be so frightened.
Vantine: This storm isn't the only thing that has you worried around here, is it? I saw him kick the door shut. He came out with rouge all over his mouth. I suppose he asked to use your lipstick?
[Lights a cigarette]

Barbara Willis: I don't know how it happened. I didn't do anything. He didn't have any reason to believe that I'd...

Vantine: Well, watch out for the next moment, honey. It's longer than the first.

Gary Willis: [Eating dinner] Those coolies are tough to handle, aren't they?
Dennis Morgan: Didn't I tell you they were a lazy bunch?

[Denni and Barbara look at each other]
Gary Willis: Are they always like that?
Dennis Morgan: I'm afraid so.
McQuarg: I was telling him about that time that Malay tried to knife you in the back.
Vantine: Its a great country for that sort of thing.

Dennis Morgan: What's the matter with you? Are you crazy?
Vantine: Just a little nauseated. This rain seems to have uncovered a pile of garbage around here.
Dennis Morgan: Stop looking through key holes. It's bad for the eyes.

Dennis Morgan: Listen, what goes on here is my business.
Vantine: Suppose I were to tell that nice white kid? He'd make it his business, wouldn't he?

Dennis Morgan: All those lame cracks won't help you any if I come back and find you've been annoying her.
Vantine: Oh, I wouldn't touch her with your best pair of rubber gloves!

Dennis Morgan: Its a dirty, rotten country.
Vantine: And we're dirty, rotten people, I suppose, eh?

Vantine: Oh, Denni! Denni, does it hurt awful?
Dennis Morgan: Oh, stop blubbering.
