Macaulay Connor: You've got all the arrogance of your class, haven't you?

Tracy Lord: What have classes to do with it? What do they matter except for the people in them? George comes from the so-called lower class, Dexter, the upper. Well?

Macaulay Connor: Well...

Tracy Lord: Mac the night watchman is a prince among men, Uncle Willie is a... pincher. Upper and lower my eye. I'll take the lower, thanks.

Macaulay Connor: If you can't get a drawing room.

Tracy Lord: What does that mean?

Macaulay Connor: My mistake.

Tracy Lord: Decidedly. You're insulting!

Macaulay Connor: Sorry.

Tracy Lord: Oh, don't apologize!

Macaulay Connor: Well, who's apologizing?

Tracy Lord: I never knew such a man.

Macaulay Connor: Yeah?

Tracy Lord: I don't know - go up, I guess, it's late.

Macaulay Connor: A magnificence that comes out of your eyes, in your voice, in the way you stand there, in the way you walk. You're lit from within, Tracy. You've got fires banked down in you, hearth-fires and holocausts.

Tracy Lord: I don't seem to you made of bronze?

Macaulay Connor: No, you're made out of flesh and blood. That's the blank, unholy surprise of it. You're the golden girl, Tracy. Full of life and warmth and delight. What goes on? You've got tears in your eyes.

Tracy Lord: Shut up, shut up. Oh, Mike. Keep talking, keep talking. Talk, will you?

Macaulay Connor: Oh, a little.

C. K. Dexter Haven: [Amused] A little? And you a writer? Tsk, tsk, tsk. I thought all writers drank to excess and beat their wives. You know, at one time I think I secretly wanted to be a writer.
