Tony Preston: Come on, darling, fair exchange. One fib for a broken date.
Tony Preston: Practical jokers have particular talents. Not commendable, but highly special.
Tony Preston: Nora won the Irish Sweep, madam, and left. I'm the new maid.
Kit Preston: With or without onions?
Peggy Thompson: With! When your husband's 10,000 miles away, what does it matter?
Aunt Bea: If he cares enough, he'll find me.
Tony Preston: Take Bea. She's a gay soul. At least you'll have a chuckle or two.
Kit Preston: That's the way I've always dreamed of going to Venice. The moon on the Grand Canal, and the gondolier singing, and Aunt Bea beside me... chuckling.
Tony Preston: You wouldn't want an irresponsible husband.
Kit Preston: No, darling. Just a husband.
Charles Manning: There's nothing wrong about money that having it can't cure.
Kit Preston: Don't ever change.
Aunt Bea: I try not to, but the bills at the beauty parlor get bigger every year.
Peggy Thompson: At least your husband comes home at night. All I have of Roy is a signature at the bottom of a weekly letter. Try cuddling up with THAT.
Inspector Byrnes: Sometimes I think the Blitz left us with more derelict minds than derelict buildings.
Inspector Byrnes: No, not at all, Mr. Preston. We're here to be disturbed.
Tony Preston: How's Bea? Did she bring any stuffed heads back with her?
Kit Preston: One. She met him on the plane.
Aunt Bea: Thank heavens there are no tigers in London.
Aunt Bea: Ah, the jungle of finance. Men must work, and women must weep!
Aunt Bea: I was once in Dublin for the horse show, and I got a call at the Sheldon Room from a man who wanted to dress me in black underwear. Personally, mind you! It was the most *stimulating* minute-and-a-half I spent in Ireland!
Tony Preston: Anyway, we'd better let the Inspector know. No reason why he shouldn't have insomnia with the rest of us.
Brian Younger: Before the war I planned on being an architect. But that meant an office and four walls. I even sleep out under the stars whenever I can. Camping trips and things like that.
Kit Preston: That's fine if you're married to a Girl Scout.
Aunt Bea: 'Swan Lake' makes me terribly thirsty.
Charles Manning: Must have something to do with those long necks.
Inspector Byrnes: Now, Mrs. Covent. Do you recollect exactly what your niece said to you on the phone?
Aunt Bea: Yes. She said, "Aunt Bea, help me, help me."
Inspector Byrnes: And what did you assume she meant, Mrs. Covent?
Aunt Bea: That she needed help, Inspector!
Tony Preston: Doesn't he think it's dangerous leaving an attractive girl alone for months on end?
