1/_I think that dress hikes up a little behind.
2/_No, it’s me that does.

1/_Of course, in-as-much as you let us in for it in the first place.
2/_Oh, do keep that note out of your voice, Tracy. It’s very unattractive.
1/_Oh? How does your dancer friend talk? Or does she purr?
2/_Oh, it’s quite all right, Margaret.
1/_Sweet and low, I suppose. Dulcet, very lady-like. You’ve got a heck of a nerve to come back here in your best-head-of-the-family manner and make stands and strike attitudes and criticize my fiancee and give orders and mess things up generally…
3/_Stop it instantly!
1/_I can’t help it. It’s sickening. As if he’d done nothing at all!
2/_Which happens to be the truth.
3/_Anyway, it’s not your affair, Tracy, if it concerns anyone. Well actually, I don’t know whom it concerns except your father.

1/_Very important, I suppose.
2/_Oh, very, very. Because without her, he might be inclined to go out in search of his youth. And that’s just as important to him as it is to any woman. But with a girl of his own full of warmth for him, full of foolish, unquestioning, uncritical affection…..
1/_None of which I’ve got –
2/_None. You have a good mind, a pretty face, a disciplined body that does what you tell it to. You have everything it takes to make a lovely woman except the one essential – an understanding heart. And without that, you might just as well be made of bronze.
1/_(deeply hurt): That’s an *awful* thing to say to anyone.
2/_Yes, it is indeed.
1/_So, I’m to blame for Tina Mara, am I?

1/_She’s so mean about Dexter.
2/_He was rather mean to her, my dear.
1/_Did he really sock her?
2/_Please, Dinah…..
1/_Did he really?
2/_Darling. You go out and wait in the car.
1/_The papers were full of *innundo*
2/_Of what?
1/_Of *innundo*… Cruelty and drunkenness, it said

1/_Sometimes, for your own sake Red… I think you should’ve stuck to me longer.
2/_I thought it was for life, but the nice judge gave me a full pardon.

1/_The course of true love…
2/_…gathers no moss.

Tracy: You-I don’t seem to you- made of bronze, then-
Mike: You’re made of flesh and blood- that’s the blank, unholy surprise of it. You’re the golden girl, Tracy, full of love and warmth and delight- What the hell’s this? You’ve got tears in your eyes.
Tracy: Shut up, shut up!- Oh, Mike- keep talking- keep talking! -Talk-, will you?

Mike: Whiskey’s a slap on the back and champagne’s heavy mist before your eyes.

My, she was yare.
