Miss Briggs, how many years have you been making what for convenience I call my tea?
What's wrong with it this time, Mr. Dabney?

Jean Harlow received a ring from beau William Powell when this film was in production. She wears it at nearly every turn, except during the dish washing scene.
Miss Harlow's wearing of the ring and incorporating it into the actions of the character she's playing seems very significant. It's a personal validation of who she is and what she's worth.
There is a moment where Robert Taylor asks her in the film about her plans to marry, and it is clear that when replying, Harlow is not the character in the story, but her real self, commenting on her own plans to marry Powell. Unfortunately, that did not happen, but we know that she had been given not only a ring, but the gift of real love. And it's great to watch that in this film.
