Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): [to Nick] You mean your own mother charged you with bigamy?
Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): I certainly did.
Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): I hope you remember this on Mother’s Day.

Bianca Steele (Polly Bergen): Your Honor, may I please have your permission to get out of here before I explode?
Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): I’d like to go home myself. I’d like to tell my wife about this. She thinks all my cases are dull. This one’s a doozy.

Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): Well, are you gonna answer the question or is she going to talk for you the rest of your life?

Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): You’ll be at the hotel before they arrive.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): I can’t DO that, Grace!
Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): WHY can’t you? You’re his wife.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): So is she.
Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): She’s his bride.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): What’s he difference?
Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): A honeymoon, and you’re not goin’ to let them have one.

Nicholas Arden (James Garner): [describing Ellen’s memorial service] There wasn’t a dry eye in the congregation.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): Oh, gosh, I wish I’d been there.
Nicholas Arden (James Garner): I-if you had been there, there wouldn’t have been a service.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): Oh. That’s right.

District Attorney (Pat Harrington Jr.): Your Honor, in effort to expedite matters in this somewhat unusual hearing, we pray decisions on a number of legal actions filed concurrently, all of which are components of one basic familial disturbance.
Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): [bemoaning] Sounds like something The Court of Appeals is gonna reverse me on already.

Nicholas Arden (James Garner): You out of your mind?
Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): Just a little. I can’t quite seem to adjust: two daughters-in-law for only one son.
Nicholas Arden (James Garner): Well, as long as you had only one, why’d it have to be me?

Bianca Steele (Polly Bergen): Oh, you are such a comfort, doctor. You know, I truly believe the most vital relationship a woman can establish is not between man and wife. It’s the relationship between a woman and her analyst. Don’t you agree, Dr. Schlick?
Dr. Herman Schlick: Call me Herman.

Nicholas Arden (James Garner): [muttering as he walks through the hotel lobby] My wife is alive. My wife is alive. My wife is alive.
Seymour: So’s mine, buddy. That’s why I drink!

Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): And you down there, stop that whispering. This is a court of law, not a public library.

Mr. Codd (Fred Clark): I’d like to know what he thinks he’s doing.
Hotel Desk Clerk (Max Showalter): I’d like to know how he does it.

Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): Where’d you study law, anyway?
Nicholas Arden (James Garner): Harvard, sir.
Judge Bryson (Edgar Buchanan): Yeah, I might have known. Yale man, myself.

Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): Oh, Grace. There was a man on that island with me.
Grace Arden (Thelma Ritter): How marvelous. No wonder you look so well. But, you silly girl, why did you tell Nick?

Nicholas Arden (James Garner): Kids aren’t hard to bring up. Just pretend they’re someone else’s.

Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): Don’t take advantage of me just because I’m a woman.
Nicholas Arden (James Garner): You’re my wife.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): One of them.
Nicholas Arden (James Garner): Yeah. Hey, I really have to do something about that.
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Doris Day): Yes.
