George Reeves: [about Leonore Lemmon] She makes me feel young.
Toni Mannix: [obviously offended] Have you seen yourself, George? Your face is going.
George Reeves: Don't do this...
Toni Mannix: Here, your eyes, your hair, your stomach.
George Reeves: Stop it.
Toni Mannix: You think no one notices?
George Reeves: Toni, don't do this.
Toni Mannix: But you've got your projects, haven't you? You're going to be a director. You'll sit in your little canvas chair polishing your balls. "Thank God I got rid of that hag I had to screw. What was her name? The one who paid for everything! The one who bought me a fucking house!".

[Reeves lights Mannix' cigarette]
Toni Mannix: My, we're awfully well-trained, Mister...
George Reeves: George Reeves.
George Reeves: Was it the line or the delivery?
Toni Mannix: I laugh when I'm happy.
George Reeves: I see. Well, who is it I'm making so happy?
Toni Mannix: I'm Toni.
George Reeves: Just a poor girl with no last name.
[Mannix laughs again]
George Reeves: I had no idea I could spread this much joy!
Toni Mannix: Who knows what you might be spreading?
Toni Mannix: Your turn.
George Reeves: I'm afraid you've got me!
