Quotes

  • Regi  

    Well, I'm not *that* unconventional.

  • Ted  

    Aw, don't be old-fashioned. What are conventions anyway? Just a bunch of salesmen sitting around and telling stories.

  • Regi  

    It was lovely of you, but taking taxis when you haven't any money is a little foolish, isn't it?

  • Ted  

    Foolish? Why, I had to take a taxi. I couldn't go out in this pouring rain and get my only suit all wet, could I?

  • Regi  

    Where's your overcoat?

  • Ted  

    Ohhh, spending a little time in the pawnshop...

  • Regi  

    Well, why did you pawn your overcoat?

  • Ted  

    Why, to pay for the taxi, of course. Dope!

  • Regi  

    We're exactly alike.

  • Ted  

    No, ha ha, oh no, your hair is much--

  • Regi  

    We are! We're both trying to do the same thing: marry for money.

  • Ted  

    Is that what you want to do?

  • Regi  

    Mm-hmm.

  • Ted Drew  

    Oh, father's living abroad. He has an amazing ability for borrowing money from practically total strangers. Unfortunately, that ability isn't hereditary.

  • Regi  

    How could the Drews be broke?

  • Ted  

    Well, do you remember that thing called the Crash?

  • Regi  

    Yes.

  • Ted  

    Well, that was us.

  • Laura  

    Yeah, and maybe here's that ten million dollars you've been dreaming about.

  • Regi  

    The way I feel today, I'd settle for a million.

  • Regi  

    You must have a lot of friends that could give you a job.

  • Ted  

    That'd be a fine friend who'd give you a job. No friend of mine had better try anything like that on me.
