Morris Weissman: "How do you manage to put up with these people?" Ivor Novello: "Hmmph. You forget I earn my living by impersonating them."
Constance: "Tell me, what happened to William's little maid? I never saw her again after that dinner." Mary Maceachran: "Elsie?" Constance: "Hmm." Mary Maceachran: "She's gone." Constance: "Aw, it's a pity, really. I thought it was a good idea to have someone in the house who is actually sorry he's dead."

Seems some men are lucky, and... some men just aren't, and... nothing they can do about it..." Dorothy: "I believe in love. Not just getting it - giving it. I think as long as you can love somebody, whether or not they love you, then it's worth it. I..." (she goes back to her duties) Anthony Meredith: "That's a good answer..."
Morris Weissman (on the phone, discussing casting for his movie): "What about Claudette Colbert? She's British, isn't she? She sounds British... Is she, like, "affected" or is she British?"
Maid (of Henry Denton): "Do you think he's the murderer?" Robert Parks: "It's worse than that - he's an actor!"
Elsie: "You know what I heard... Oh, just listen to me..." Mary Maceachran: "What?" Elsie: "Why do we spend our lives living through them? I mean look at poor old Lewis. If her own mother had a heart attack, she'd think it was less important than one of Lady Sylvia's farts."
