Robert Gold: Your idea of fidelity is not having more than one man in bed at the same time.
Diana Scott: Taxi!
Robert Gold: We're not taking a taxi.
Diana Scott: Why not?
Robert Gold: I don't take whores in taxis.
Miles Brand: Why, Carlotta. How savage we are tonight. Did someone go back to their wife?
Carlotta: If he had, you'd have been there to greet him.
Diana Scott: Imagine if...
Miles Brand: What?
Diana Scott: It took three.
Miles Brand: Took three?
Diana Scott: Sexes. To make a child.
Miles Brand: Very entertaining.
Diana Scott: Everything would be different, wouldn't it, quite different, with three sexes.
Miles Brand: Haven't we got enough problems with two?
Miles Brand: My impotence, my darling, makes a pair with your virginity.
Diana Scott: [during a fight with Robert] We're NOT married. At least, not to each other.
Robert Gold: You're just a whore baby, nothing but a whore and I don't take whores in taxi's
Miles Brand: It was said of her great-grandmother that the only members of the cabinet who weren't her lovers were the ones who had reason to believe they might be her father.
Diana Scott: I always feel as if there's one more corner to turn, and I'll be there.
Miles Brand: And so you will.
Diana Scott: Then there'll be another.
Miles Brand: That's the attraction of corners.
Robert Gold: Now Mr Southgate, you have the reputation of being something of a lone wolf. Is this a protest against the establishment?
Matthew Southgate: It is true, I have always preferred to be a mouse that walked by itself rather than a member of a group of literary lions; always licking each other, washing each other behind the ears. And biting each other. And as you know, they're behind bars, in a cultural zoo.
