Bess Truman: I think like Harry - if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.
Harry S. Truman: Charlie, Bess thinks you'd make a hell of a press secretary.
Charlie Ross: Oh, Jesus, no, Harry.
Harry S. Truman: Oh, you can't say no to Bess. I'm appointing Frank here secretary.
Frank Vassar: Secretary of what?
Harry S. Truman: Just secretary. Franklin's staff all look at me like a skunk at a wedding. I need some Missouri around me real quick.
Eleanor Roosevelt: Harry, the President is dead.
Harry S. Truman: Mrs. Roosevelt, is there anything I can do for you?
Eleanor Roosevelt: Oh! Is there anything we can do for you? You are the one in trouble now.
Harry S. Truman: I don't give 'em hell, I just tell the truth and they think it's hell.
