  • (José Ferrer) "The morning wind is cold, but not so cold as the waters of the Seine."
  • (Suzanne Flon) "You are mistaken, monsieur. I am not a candidate for the river."

  • (José Ferrer) "Love is a state of confusion in which the victim can not distinguish between spiritual aspiration, carnal desire, and pride of ownership."

  • (Suzanne Flon) "Is your wit always turned against yourself, Monsieur Lautrec?"

  • (José Ferrer) "Big crowd tonight."
  • (Unnamed) "Too big, thanks to your poster. Oh, I know I'm making millions, but I liked the Moulin Rouge as she was, lighthearted and hot-blooded, a little strumpet who thought only of tonight. Now she is grown up and knowns better. She has money in her stocking, wears corsets, and never drinks a drop too much. Worst of all, she never sees her old friends anymore. She has gone into society. Last night she entertained a cabinet minister and his wife and daughter. It's disgusting."

  • (José Ferrer) "Forgive me, madame, the lady is not undressing, she is dressing. The gentleman happens to be her husband. They are celebrating their twenty-seventh wedding anniversary. They are going to have dinner with their oldest son. He is a taxidermist. I am appalled that you should thus malign these good people. It goes to prove what I have always maintained, that evil exists only in the eye of the beholder. I will thank you to stop looking at my pictures."

  • (José Ferrer) "For your sake, I pray that they are not padded."
  • (Zsa Zsa Gabor) "Myriamme, you are incorrigible. The first time you're out with a man and you tell him your father died of alcoholism. Anyway, whose father didn't ?"
