Quotes from Joel McCrea's Characters

    1. Taxi driver: Yes Maam.
    2. Gerry Jeffers: Where's the best place to get a divorce?
    3. Tom Jeffers: Gerry, for heavens sake!
    4. Taxi driver: Well most people go to Reno, Nevada, but for my money, it's Palm Beach. This time of the year you've got the track, you've got the ocean, you've got the palm trees. Three months, you leave from Penn Station.
    5. Gerry Jeffers: Look, I'm in an awful hurry. I haven't got a dime - will you take me there for nothing?
    6. Taxi driver: To where, Palm Beach?
    7. Gerry Jeffers: No no, just to the station
    8. Taxi driver: Oh, sure. Hop in babe.

    1. Tom Jeffers: I don't want to be rude, Honey...
    2. Gerry Jeffers: You're not being rude, Dear, you're just being yourself. You see you're married to me - t-that's like saying you're blind to me. For a long time I've been a part of you, just something to s-snuggle up to and keep you warm at night like a blanket But you can't see me any more than you can the back of your neck. Now, - I put on new dresses I change my hair....
    3. Tom Jeffers: Would you mind not looking quite so gorgeous while you say all these things?
    4. Gerry Jeffers: You're just plastered.
    5. Tom Jeffers: yes, well..., we'd better get you home before you fall apart. Or do you object to spending the night under the same roof with me?
    6. Gerry Jeffers: I wasn't thinking about the roof.
