Lisbeth Corbin: Oh, more than the earth, the sun, the moon or the stars - with the Milky Way thrown in for good measure.

Lisbeth Corbin: We don't believe in the awful necessity of marriage.

Geneva: You mean, he doesn't.

Lisbeth Corbin: And, by the way, when did you go conventional?

Geneva: When I got sense. At present I'm carrying on a purely plutonic affair with a very rich man. Plutonic.

Lisbeth Corbin: You're funny.

Geneva: No, clever. I'll marry him someday. Unless he's smarter than I am.

Lisbeth Corbin: Ha-ha. He isn't.

Celia: Steve will be like that after you two have been married a year or so.

Steve: Us married? Haven' t you heard? There's a goof named Alan.

Celia: Who is he?

Steve: He's the fly in the ointment. In fact, the ointment is practically all flies.

Celia: Well, what is he?

Lisbeth Corbin: Well, your honor, it's this way. You see, he writes.

Steve: A foreign correspondent.

Lisbeth Corbin: In a big way!

Steve: One of those guys who's always horning in on revolutions. Having breakfast with Mussolini.

Lisbeth Corbin: Wherever there's trouble in the world, he goes sits among it.

Steve: And no more home ties than a floating kidney.

Lisbeth Corbin: [Talking on the phone to a drunk Steve] Marry you? If you were here now and could stand up, I might. I said, I might.

Steve: I'll be there tomorrow. Sober as a judge.

Lisbeth Corbin: Oh. And try to take me back to Boston? Pack me in mothballs? So you could come to New York with a bucket of red paint?

Geneva: Well, shades of Santa Claus!

Alan: Hello, Geneva

Geneva: Have you phoned upstairs?

Alan: I just arrived.

Geneva: Well, here's my key. Number three-ten. Now, don't phone and don't knock. Walk right in and say, eh, eh, Merry, eh, Fourth of July or Chinese New Year. Ha-ha.

Alan: I'd hate terribly to hurt you.

Lisbeth Corbin: Why, haven't you heard? Nowadays a girl may kiss - and ride on. Just as well as any man ever could.

Alan: Let's see.

Lisbeth Corbin: No-no. You came to explain, not to make love.

Alan: It's wrong to end so sweet a chapter like this. I'm going to a charming spot. Where the sun is warm, no noise, no hurry. Lazy people play funny music in the moonlight.

Lisbeth Corbin: No wonder you love your job.

Lisbeth Corbin: Well, this is a swell time to come in. Eight o'clock in the morning.

Geneva: Any use in my telling you that you're making a mistake? No, I didn't think there was.

Lisbeth Corbin: No power on earth can stop me.

Geneva: Thank goodness your laundry came back yesterday. I knew a girl who forgot all of her best underclothes. It practically ruined Niagara Falls.

Andrew: Now my dear girl, Steve is a good lad. And you know, after all, marriage still is the natural...

Lisbeth Corbin: Oh, quit will you! You make me sick! You think women should all be shoved into a coop - like hens. That is, good women! The only important thing you don't mention at all. You can't tell me anything! Women aren't human things to you! They're either wives or sweethearts! Get a house - and some furniture and some rugs and a wife!

Geneva: Darling. Darling, you're right and I'm a fool. I'm sorry but you'll have to send your messages by wireless. No time now for sad farewells. Forget about tomorrow and yesterday and go to it. My wild Irish blessing's attend you. Hooray and three cheers!

Lisbeth Corbin: I wish we'd been born here. If we had, I wonder what would have happened?

Alan: Well, some Saturday night I should probably have put on my best pair of velveteen panties, sneaked up under your window, sung a serenade and then said...

[Goat bleats]

Alan: Ha-ha. Or, words to that effect.

Steve: Gee whiz, Lisbeth. Talk about shocks.

Lisbeth Corbin: Oh, but what a relief. Now you don't have to pack me in mothballs.

Steve: Oh, darling.

Lisbeth Corbin: Because I've seen life murmur and heard it glisten. I'm no longer the good woman in your life, Stevie.

Steve: There are no good women.

Lisbeth Corbin: Sorry to hear you say that.

Lisbeth Corbin: Ha-ha. It's simply gorgeous, Stevie, you bobbing up like this. Really, thrilling.

Steve: Oh, you're lying. But, I like it. I never gave you a thrill in your life.

Lisbeth Corbin: I'm not lying. I try to find one kick for every 24 hours. You saved the day!

Steve: Well, that's something.

Lisbeth Corbin: [Toast] Happy days!

Lisbeth Corbin: Ha-ha. Don't worry about me. You see, I had a little bluebird, but no cage. Bluebird got away. Just a little gal who lost a bluebird.

De Bazan: What an afternoon you have missed. There are six bulls. Each one, each one the most vicious. And you wouldn't come. Game, unexciting roulette you like better than bullfighting. Six bulls. Scaritto, he scratches three. Three! Himself, nearly killed. How thrilling. Its too bad. Too bad.

Lisbeth Corbin: Sounds like a lot of bull, eh, Steve?

Steve: Oh, yeah, you said it.

Lisbeth Corbin: Oh, look here Steve, what's the matter with you? You've been out for fun all your life. Ha-ha. All you men are. I found that out. The sweet grand things that a girl dreams about, don't interest men at all. They're just a nuisance.
