[after meeting Gladys in central Park]

Pete Sheppard: Good luck to you, Gladys. I sure hope you make a name for yourself, if that's what you want. If that's what you really want, you'll get it.

Gladys Glover: How?

Pete Sheppard: I don't know. Just a theory of mine: that not only 'where there's a will, there's a way'... but, 'where's there's a way, there's a will'. See?

Gladys Glover: 262 West 61st Street, Room 9.

Pete Sheppard: Well, so long Gladys.

Gladys Glover: [Extends her hand but instead of him shaking it, Pete kisses it impulsively. She looks taken aback]

Robert Grau: [Thinking about an ad for their product] How's this? "Stars need it. Celebrities too. But, more important, it's the favorite of average American girls such as Miss Gladys Glover!"

Bert Piazza: I don't think she's so average.

Evan Adams III: Why not?

Bert Piazza: Because she's unusual.

Evan Adams III: That's what you men don't understand. That the average American girl IS unusual.

Bert Piazza: How's that again?

Evan Adams III: Exactly.

Robert Grau: He's got something there BP.
