Oscar Shapeley (to Ellie Andrews): "Hi, sister. All alone? My name's Shapeley. Might as well get acquainted; it's gonna be a long trip -- gets tiresome later on, especially for somebody like you. You look like you've got class... Yes-sir... with a capital 'K'! And I'm the guy that knows class when he sees it! Believe you me! Ask any of the boys -- they'll tell ya: Shapeley sure knows how to pick 'em... Yes-sir! Shapeley's the name, and that's the way I like 'em! You made no mistake sittin' next to me; just between us, the kinda mugs you meet on a hop like this ain't nothin' to write home to the wife about. You gotta be awful careful who you hit it up with, is what I always say, and you can't be too particular neither."
Oscar Shapeley: "What's the matter, sister? You ain't sayin' much." Ellie Andrews: "It seems to me you're doing excellently without any assistance!" Oscar Shapeley: "Ha, ha, ha, ha! There's pretty good! 'It seems to me you're doing excellently without any assistance'! Well shut my big nasty mouth!"
Oscar Shapeley: "You know, there's nothin' I like better than to meet a high-class mama that can snap 'em back at cha. 'Cause the colder they are -- the hotter they get! That's what I always say. Yes-sir... when a cold mama gets hot, boyyy, how she sizzles. Heh, heh, heh, heh. Now, you're just my type! Believe me sister, I could go for you in a BIG way. 'Fun-on-the-side' Shapeley they call me, with accent on the fun, believe you me." Ellie Andrews: "Believe you me, you bore me to distraction!"
"I never did like the idea of sitting on newspapers. I did it once, and all the headlines came off on my white pants. On the level! It actually happened. Nobody bought a paper that day. They just followed me around over town and read the news on the seat of my pants." -- Peter Warne
