Holly (Betty Hutton): All men aren’t that way, even if they act like clowns.


Holly (Betty Hutton): [singing] When things go wrong, and life’s no song, and you’re flat on your back, that doesn’t mean you have to lie there: be a jumping jack!
Buttons (Jimmy Stewart): [singing] Keep on the hop, and if you flop, and everything looks black, stand on your head and holler “hi there!” Be a jumping jack!
Holly (Betty Hutton): When things go up, they must come down, and also visa verse. If things look bad, don’t fret and frown – they could be ten times worse!
