Jerry Warriner: Aren't you?
Lucy Warriner: No.

Jerry Warriner: No, let's drink to your happiness with Buffalo Bill, which doesn't even make sense.

Lucy Warriner: I wouldn't go on living with you if you were dipped in platinum. So go on, divorce me. Go on, divorce me! It'll be a pleasure.

Lucy Warriner: I guess it was easier to her to change her name than for her whole family to change theirs.

'Dan' Leeson: Well, I guess a man's best friend is his mother.

Lucy Warriner: Armand, I'm wondering, could you do me a favor?
Armand Duvalle: Oh, of course.
Lucy Warriner: I've been thinking, I wonder if you could convince him that everything was just as I said it was that night at the inn. You know, the night.
