Mrs. Railton-Bell: I have no curiosity about the working classes.

Ann Shankland: I didn't mean any harm.
John Malcolm: That's when you do the most damage.
Ann Shankland: We all make mistakes.
John Malcolm: You specialize in them.

John Malcolm: You know something, Ann? No one I know of lies with such sincerity.

Mr. Fowler: The trouble about being on the side of right, as one sees it, is that one often finds oneself in the company of such very questionable allies.

Mrs. Railton-Bell: We want your views on Major Pollock.
Miss Meacham: Do you? Well, my views of Major Pollock are that he's always been a crashing old bore and a wicked old fraud, and now I hear he's a dirty old man too. I'm not surprised, and, quite between these four walls, I don't give a damn.

John Malcolm: Is this your year for looking up old husbands?
Ann Shankland: Only the special ones.
