Don Lockwood: Are you doing anything tonight, Miss Lamont?
[she shakes her head "no"]
Don Lockwood: Well's that's funny - I'm busy.

Rosco: What's your name?
Don Lockwood: Don Lockwood sir, but the fellas all call me Donald.
Rosco: Wise guy, eh? All right, get this guy into Bert's suit! And remember Lockwood, you might be trading that fiddle in for a harp!

Rod: Lina, you're a beautiful woman. Audiences think you've got a voice to match. The studio's gotta keep their stars from looking ridiculous at any cost.
Cosmo Brown: Nobody's got that much money.

[sings cheerfully] Here we are! Sunset and Camden!

Kathy Selden

[after the demonstration of a talking picture]
R.F. Simpson: What do you think of it, Dexter?
Rosco: It'll never amount to a thing.
Olga: [with heavy, snotty accent] Its vulgar!
Cosmo Brown: That's what they said about the horseless carriage.

Don Lockwood: I just had to tell you how good you were.
Kathy Selden: Excuse me.
Don Lockwood: No, no, don't go.
[pointing to cake she came out of at beginning of scene]
Don Lockwood: Now that I know where you live I'd like to see you home.

Lina, You've never looked lovelier.

Cosmo Brown

Gee, I'm glad you turned up, we've been looking inside every cake in town.

Cosmo Brown

[after Cosmo's car breaks down]
Don Lockwood: Don't tell me, it's a flat tire.
Cosmo Brown: I can't undertand it. This car hasn't given me a lick of trouble in nearly 6 hours.

Don, how did you come, by way of Australia?

Cosmo Brown

Don Lockwood: Tell me the truth, am I a good actor?
Cosmo Brown: As long as I'm working for Monumental Pictures, you're the greatest of 'em all.

R.F. Simpson: Cosmo, remind me to give you a raise.
[turns around]
Cosmo Brown: Oh, R.F.
R.F. Simpson: Yes?
Cosmo Brown: Give me a raise.
