The Happy Ending Quotes

Jean Simmons as Mary Wilson

  • (Jean Simmons) "I've found the secret formula: IF you look and smell right, IF your hair is the right color, if you drive the right car, smoke the right cigarette, if your bosom is big, and firm, and fully packed, and your breath is sweet and your teeth are bright, then you'll find love, marriage, and be happy forever -- if; IF; you promise never, but never, to grow old."
  • (Lloyd Bridges) "Why not? It's the American Dream."
  • (Jean Simmons) "I thought that was money?"
  • (Lloyd Bridges) "Love and money are related by marriage."
  • (Shirley Jones) "Daddy, what's marriage?"
  • (Lloyd Bridges) "Business. BIG business. The U.S. economy depends on marriage."
  • (Jean Simmons) "Not U.S. Steel?"
  • (Lloyd Bridges) "Marriage. Once, people saved up to get married. Now, there's credit. Credit means buying. That means stores, shipping, buildings, factories -- Marriage means sex. Beauty. Luxury. Diamonds. Furs. Perfumes. Cars. Gifts for her. Gifts for him. Gifts for Them. Marriage means a home. That means painters, plumbers, carpenters, furniture, rugs, curtains, linens, silver, dishes, electric washers, driers, mixers, fixers, stoves, clocks, radios, T.V.'s; thirty billion dollars every year, just to get married -- If marriage is made in heaven, a broken marriage is financial blasphemy. Bachelors, divorcees, widows and homosexuals are unprofitable -- and that makes them Un-American."

Shirley Jones as Flo

  • (Shirley Jones) "Lucky my mother hated breast-feeding or I'd've been alcoholic before I could walk."
  • (Shirley Jones) "Some girls work their way through college selling magazines. I sold me."
  • (Lloyd Bridges) "I don't want to hear it."
  • (Shirley Jones) "It's a success story with a bang finish. Lucky my mother hated breast-feeding, or I'd been alcoholic before I could walk. Finally killed her. Every Sunday, drunk or sober, she'd give me the same lecture: "Girl, ya' gotta' go to college. Because without an education, you either end up a big-mouthed housewife, or a big-assed whore." My freshman year, she dropped dead; smack in the middle of praying to win a fortune in the Irish Sweepstakes -- I sure didn't intend to be a big-mouthed housewife, so I went to work. I graduated with a "master's degree"; in men."

Nanette Fabray as Agnes

  • (Nanette Fabray) "If sex were the only thing that really mattered, the whole world would be run by rabbits."
