View Quote ...not as much as I am in the metamorphic or sedimentary rock categories. I mean I can take your igneous rocks or leave them. I relate primarily to micas, quartz, feldspar. You can keep your pyroxenes, magnetites and coarse-grained plutonics as far as I'm concerned...

View Quote Eunice: Howard! Howard Bannister! Howard, when I ask for you to wait for me somewhere I expect you to stay there until I come back.
Howard: Yes, Eunice.
Eunice: Now, it is difficult enough for me to have to see to all these arrangements myself...
Howard: Yes, Eunice.
Eunice: It is exactly 6:15. If we reach the hotel in half an hour, we'll have just enough time to get ready for the banquet.
Howard: Yes, Eunice.
Eunice: [to the airport attendant] Put these things in a taxi.
Airport Attendant Yes, Eunice.

Howard: We're not married.
Judy: Congratulations.
Eunice: But we will be soon.
Judy: Condolences.
Eunice: [to Howard] Who is this person?
Howard: I haven't the vaguest idea. She was behind a rock in the drug store.
Judy: Oh come on Steve, you can tell her about us.
Eunice: Why is she calling you that name?
Howard: Don't pay any attention to her, Eunice. [turning to Judy] Look, Miss Maxwell--
Eunice: You know her name.
Howard: Eunice, I swear this is a bizarre joke.
Judy: Sure, it's easy for you, everywhere you go, another heart broken--women, women, women. You call it joking. Eunice and I, we call it lust.
Eunice: Don't you know the meaning of propriety?
Judy: Propriety? Noun. Conformity to established standards of behavior or manners, suitability, rightness, or justice. See "etiquette."

Mrs. Van Hoskins: What happened to Hans?
Fritz: There is no Hans, Mrs. Van Hoskins, there is only me, Fritz.
Mrs. Van Hoskins: Oh, what a shame!
Fritz: [ringing his bell] Boy!
Mrs. Van Hoskins: Now Franz, I'm going to take this with me. There are some things I need tonight, and tomorrow I want you to put it in the hotel safe for me.
View Quote Fritz: Young miss, may I help you please?
Judy: Yes, I was wondering if my friends are still here. They're visiting from the um... New Hebrides and I believe they're in Room 1717.
Fritz: I'm sorry, but that room is vacant.
Judy: I don't understand. They told me they would be in Room 1717 at the Hotel Crystal.
Fritz: This is the Bristol, madam, not the Crystal.
Judy: Then one of us must be in the wrong hotel.
View Quote Howard: [to the bellhop] Don't touch that. Those are my pre-Paleozoic Tambulu rocks.

View Quote Judy Maxwell: [Talking so Howard can hear]: No, no. I'm a transfer student. No, not the University -- the Conservatory of Music. It's in Ames. You never heard of it? Well, it's a small conservatory, but there are those who love it. There's a professor there whom I hope to be studying with. A brilliant man by the name of Howard Bannister. No, Bannister. As in: sliding down the. You never heard of him? Yeah, that's right! The nut with the rocks! What's up, Doc?

Judy Maxwell: Listen, kiddo. You can't fight a tidal wave.
[They kiss]
Howard: About those things. I mean, the way I acted back there. I'm sorry.
Judy Maxwell: Let me tell you something. Love means never having to say you're sorry.
Howard: That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
[They kiss again]
View Quote Judy: ...it's probably the excitement of meeting you for the first time. I must say, I can feel it myself.

Mr. Larrabee: Sit DOWN, gentlemen!
