Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Hey, you’€™re not gonna catch the opening tonight, huh?
Eve (Eve Arden): No, I’€™m going tomorrow and catch the closing.

Eve (Eve Arden): Well, I don’€™t like to gossip, but that new gal seems to have an awful crush on Shakespeare!
Susan: I wouldn’€™t be surprised if they get married!
Mary Lou: Oh, you’€™re foolin’€™! Shakespeare’€™s dead.
Madeline: No!
Mary Lou: Well, if he’€™s the same one that wrote ‘€œHamlet,’€ he is.
Eve (Eve Arden): Never heard of it.
Mary Lou: Well, certainly you must have heard of ‘€œHamlet.’€
Eve (Eve Arden): Well, I meet so many people.

Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn): I see that, in addition to your other charms, you have that insolence generated by an inferior upbringing.
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Hmm! Fancy clothes, fancy language and everything!
Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn): Unfortunately, I learned to speak English correctly.
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): That won’€™t be of much use to you here. We all talk pig latin.

Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): We started off on the wrong foot. Let’€™s stay that way.

Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): When I get back to my room, you’€™re the only thing I want to find missing.

Judy Canfield (Lucille Ball): Do you want a date?
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): To some other lumberman?
Judy Canfield (Lucille Ball): Am I supposed to apologize for being born in Seattle?
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Well, the last couple we went stepping with were made of lumber. Especially their feet.
Judy Canfield (Lucille Ball): All right, all right, you can stay here and gorge yourself on lamb stew again.

Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn): How many doors are there to this place?
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Well, there’€™s the trap door, the humidor, and the cuspidor. How many doors would you like?

Linda Shaw: If you were a little more considerate of your elders, maybe Mr. Powell would send his car for you someday. Of course, he would probably take one look at you and send you right back again, but then you have to expect that.
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Is that so?
Linda Shaw: Do you know, I think I could fix you up with Mr. Powell’€™s chauffeur. The chauffeur has a very nice car too.
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Yes, but I understand Mr. Powell’€™s chauffeur doesn’€™t go as far in his car as Mr. Powell does.

Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Do you mind if I ask a personal question?
Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn): Another one?
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Are these trunks full of bodies?
Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn): Just those, but I don’€™t intend to unpack them.

Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Hey, that’€™s a kind of good-lookin’€™ piece of jackrabbit you got there.
Linda Shaw: Oh, it’€™s just a little trinket my ‘€œAunt Susan’€ sent over.
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Say, I think it’€™s very unselfish of those little animals to give up their lives to keep other animals warm.
Linda Shaw: You know, they’€™re very smart little animals. They never give up their lives for the wrong people.
Jean Maitland (Ginger Rogers): Well, you understand the rodent family much better than I do.

Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn): It’€™d be a terrific innovation if you could get your mind to stretch a little further than the next wisecrack.

Eve (Eve Arden): A pleasant little foursome. I predict a hatchet murder before the night’€™s over.
