Design for Living (film) Quotes

Miriam Hopkins as Gilda Farrell

  • (Miriam Hopkins) "You see, George, you're sort of like a ragged straw hat with a very soft lining. A little bit out of shape, very dashing to look at, and very comfortable to wear. And you, Tom, piquant, perched over one eye, and has to be watched on windy days. And both so becoming."
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Max, have you ever been in love?"
  • (Edward Everett Horton) "This is no time to answer that."
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Have you ever felt your brain catch fire? And a curious grateful thing go through your body? Down, down to your very toes, and leave you with your ears ringing?"

  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Well, that's how I felt just before you came in."
  • (Edward Everett Horton) "Yeah? How'd you feel yesterday after your promenade with Tom?"
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Just the opposite. It started in my toes, and came up, up, up very slowly till my brain caught fire. But the ringing in the ears was the same."
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "It's true we had a gentleman's agreement, but unfortunately, I am no gentleman."
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "I'm sick of being a trademark married to a slogan."
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Now listen, Plunkett, Incorporated. You go to those customers of yours and give 'em a sales talk. Sell them anything you want, but not me. I'm fed up with underwear, cement, linoleum, I'm sick of being a trademark married to a slogan."
  • (Edward Everett Horton) "Gilda --"
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Don't you tell 'em I've got hiccups. Tell them I've got the advertising blues. The billboard collywobbles. Slogans and sales talks morning, noon, and night, and not one human sound out of you and your whole flock of Egelbaurs."
  • (Miriam Hopkins) "Boys, it's the only thing we can do. Let's forget sex."

Fredric March as Tom Chambers

  • (Fredric March) "That's one way of meeting the situation. Shipping clerk comes home, finds missus with boarder. He breaks dishes. It's pure burlesque. Then there's another way.
