For Me and My Gal (1942)
Harry Palmer: Why didn't you tell me I was in love with you?
Bill: [when Harry Palmer first appears] Say, *he* looks like an actor.
Jo Hayden: Gee what do you do when you love somebody so much, and they don't even know you're around?
Jimmy K. Metcalf: I dunno Jo. I guess you just keep right on loving them.
Harry Palmer: [after he and Jo kiss for the first time] Say, what hit us?
Harry Palmer: Right up to this minute, my only claim to fame: you were once my girl.
Jo Hayden: You'll never be big time because you're small time in your heart.
Eve Minard: Chicago, Boston, Detroit, they're all the same, except New York... that is a city!
Eve Minard: But I'm sorry you love him so much.
Jo Hayden: Why?
Eve Minard: Because he isn't worth it.
Jimmy K. Metcalf: You know what's been the matter with you? You've been walking around with a picture book villain in your pocket and every once in a while you take a look at it like it was a mirror.
Eve Minard: He's an opportunist - an egotistical actor who would do anything to get what he wants.
