Veta Louise Simmons

Dr. Chumley: I'm Dr. Chumley. You're Mrs. Simmons, of course.
Veta Louise Simmons: Yes, well, I'm glad to know you, Dr. Chumley. Would you mind asking Judge Gaffney to come back here?
Dr. Chumley: Why, certainly, certainly.
Veta Louise Simmons: I want to tell him to sue you for $100,000. I don't think $50,000 is enough.

Dr. Sanderson: It sounds funny, but I'll miss this place. I guess I'll miss a lot of things around here.
Miss Kelly: You will?
Dr. Sanderson: You won't laugh?
Miss Kelly: Of course not.
Dr. Sanderson: You know how it is working around people all day. You sort of get attached to them.
Miss Kelly: I know, Limon.
Dr. Sanderson: It may be ridiculous, but I'm gonna miss every one of the psychos, neuros, and schizos in the place.
Miss Kelly: Well, you can miss your psychos and your schizos, Dr, Sanderson, and you can miss whomever you please. But after you leave here I won't miss a thing - not a single solitary thing.
Dr. Sanderson: Now what's wrong?
Miss Kelly: Nothing - I - I came down here to say good-bye to you, so good-bye, good luck and good riddance.
Dr. Sanderson: Why, you can't even say good-bye without putting it on a personal basis.
Miss Kelly: Oh, don't flatter yourself, doctor. There's nothing personal about this.
Dr. Sanderson: I think you've been working too hard, Kelly. You're getting neurotic.
Miss Kelly: Now don't start analyzing me. Save your psychiatry for your next job.
Dr. Sanderson: I'm not using psychiatry, Miss Kelly - and let me give you a little friendly advice - that chip on your shoulder stems from a persecution complex that undoubtedly goes back to childhood.
Miss Kelly: Well, thanks so much for the case history, doctor. Now could you tell me what an over-inflated ego stems from?
Dr. Sanderson: Now listen here!

Elwood P. Dowd: You see, science has overcome time and space. Harvey has overcome not only time and space but also any objections.
Dr. Chumley: Fly specks, fly specks! I've been spending my life among fly specks while miracles have been leaning on lampposts at 18th and Fairfax!

Dr. Chumley: This sister of yours is at the bottom of a conspiracy against you. She's trying to persuade me to lock you up. Today, she had commitment papers drawn up. She has your power of attorney and the key to your safety box, and she brought you here!
Elwood P. Dowd: She did all that in one afternoon. That Veta certainly is a whirlwind, isn't she?
