Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): You’re very modest, aren’t you?
Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Yes, I guess, I am.

Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Oh! Ha-ha-ha
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): There! I bet that’s the first time you’ve laughed since you’ve read Professor Zimmel’s inaccuracies of the Phoenician wars. Ha-ha-ha

Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): I want to explain about last night.
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): Well, it better be good. Making me wait hours for potato salad and telephoning me and barking like a dog, meowing like a cat and hooting like an owl.

Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Ellen.
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): You’ve got a nerve, hanging around here. You just got me fired!
