The Lady Eve (1941)
Jean Harrington: Boy, would I like to see you givin' some old harpie the three in one!
"Colonel" Harrington: Don't be vulgar, Jean. Let us be crooked, but never common.

Jean Harrington: I don't see why I have to do all the dirty work. There must be plenty of rich old dames just waiting for you to push 'em around.
"Colonel" Harrington: You find 'em, I'll push 'em.

Jean Harrington: [while observing Charles Pike from her pocket mirror] Not good enough.
"Colonel" Harrington: What'd you say?
Jean Harrington: I said they're not good enough for him. Every Jane in the room is giving him the thermometer and he feels they're just a waste of time. He's returning to his book; he's deeply immersed in it. He sees no one except - watch his head turn when that kid goes by. Won't do ya any good, dear - he's a bookworm - but swing 'em anyway. Oh, now how about this one. How'd you like THAT hanging on your Christmas tree? Oh, you wouldn't? Well, what is your weakness, brother? Holy smoke, the dropped kerchief! That hasn't been used since Lily Langtry. You'll have to pick it up yourself, madam. It's a shame, but he doesn't care for the flesh. He'll never see it. Look at that girl over to his left. Look over to your left, bookworm. There's a girl pining for ya. A little further. Just a little further... There! Wasn't that worth looking for? See those nice store teeth all beaming at you. Oh, she recognizes you! She's up, she's down, she can't make up her mind. She's up again. She recognizes you! She's coming over to speak to you. The suspense is killing me. "Why, for heaven's sake, aren't you Fuzzy Oathammer I went to manual training school with in Louisville? Oh, you're not? Well, you certainly look exactly like him, it's certainly a remarkable resemblance... But if you're not going to ask me to sit down, I suppose you're not going to ask me to sit down... I'm very sorry, I certainly hope I haven't caused you any embarrassment, you so and so." "I wonder if my tie's on straight. I certainly upset them, don't I? Now who else is after me?" Ah, the lady champion wrestler, wouldn't she make a houseful? Oh, you don't like her either. Well, what are you going to do about her? Oh, you just can't stand it anymore, you're leaving. These women don't give you a moment's peace, do they? Well, go ahead! Go sulk in your cabin. Go soak your head and see if I care!

Gerald: D'you want the strippers on the right or the left?
"Colonel" Harrington: I hardly need them, Gerald. I can take this boy with a deck of visiting cards.

[Jean screams upon waking]
"Colonel" Harrington: [rushing in] What's 'e matter?
Jean Harrington: Oh, I'm sorry. That slimy snake! I've been dreaming about him all night.
"Colonel" Harrington: You mean Pike?

"Colonel" Harrington: Are you really in love with this mug?
Jean Harrington: Uh-huh.
"Colonel" Harrington: Don't you think it a little bit dangerous? I don't mean for us, I mean for your heart. They're apt to be slightly narrow-minded, the righteous people.

"Colonel" Harrington: Ah, there you are. Well, it certainly took you long enough to come back in the same outfit.
Jean Harrington: I'm lucky to have this on. Mr Pike has been up the river for a year.

[Jean is crying on her bed]
"Colonel" Harrington: My gracious! You know you shouldn't draw to an inside straight.
