My Reputation (1946)
Jessica Drummond: How neat you are, Frank!
Frank Everett: That's what comes of being a bachelor all your life.
Jessica Drummond: [crying] I don't know what's the matter with me. I seem to be going to pieces!
Ginna Abbott: It isn't only the body that breaks down, Jess. The mind can go too, you know.
Mrs. Mary Kimball: [to Jess] The world allows considerable liberty to wives it has never allowed to widows. I notice, for instance, you're no longer wearing black.
Mrs. Mary Kimball: [to Jess] Our kind of people wear black.
Jessica Drummond: You know, it's amazing how I can learn to like martinis. It's an acquired taste like anchovies.
Maj. Scott Landis: Uh-huh.
Riette Van Orman: Then why did you bother to come here at all?
Jessica Drummond: Because I was still coward enough to want to save my reputation.
Riette Van Orman: How quaint!
Jessica Drummond: There are two sides to everything - even gossip.
Maj. Scott Landis: Can we start all over again from the beginning?
Mrs. Mary Kimball: No, we cannot. I can see that you're a thorough-going scalawag, young man!
Maj. Scott Landis: I'm delighted to hear you say so, madam.
Mrs. Mary Kimball: And kindly stop calling me madam!
