In the 1930s people went [to see films] not just to be entertained or to escape
the dreariness of their workaday lives but to gain an education, to see the world,
to learn table manners and interior decoration, how to dress, kiss, to laugh and cry,
how to react to tragedy and happiness, how to be brave, evil and good.
- C. David Heymann

Irene (to Godfrey): "You have a wonderful sense of humor. I wish I had a sense of humor, but I can never think of the right thing to say until everybody's gone home."
