Mrs. Duke: [singing] There are those whose social standing is constantly demanding. Every single thing we do, the public knows... Then there is a lower strata, where propriety doesn't matter. I suppose, there are those, there are those.
Aunt Mary Drexel: [singing] There are those to whom position is a natural born condition, to be worn with ease like comfortable old clothes. Though the nouveau riche deny it, all their money cannot buy it! Class will out. Goodness knows, but there are those.
Mrs. Duke: There are those who grace the pages of the blue book.
Aunt Mary Drexel: Never heard of it. Is it a new book?
Mrs. Duke: Simply anybody who *is* anybody is listed.
Aunt Mary Drexel: Oh, you mean the New York telephone directory.More Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  quotes [01/31/2008 12:01:00]
[Mr. Biddle has challenged the visiting Marines to a boxing match]
Aunt Mary Drexel: It looks as though Anthony might learn an interesting lesson this evening. I'm half tempted to go out there and watch.
Mrs. Cordelia Biddle: Aunt Mary! You forget that Anthony has boxed with champions.
Aunt Mary Drexel: But they were friends, Cordelia, and professionals. These men are not friends, and there is nothing so dangerous as the inspired amateur.More Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  quotes [01/31/2008 12:01:00]
Miss Cordelia Biddle: [singing to her reflection] Oh, Miss Cordelia Drexel Biddle, I thought I knew you well! But now, Miss Cordelia Drexel Biddle, I just can't tell. Are you Valentine candy, or boxing gloves? Lately you seem very strange... What in the world's coming over you? Everything's starting to change. Are you sonnets by Shelley, or rover boys? Once, any answer would do... Why are you suddenly wondering, which kind of someone are you? Is a boy meant to spar with, or gaze at a star with? Should you kiss him, or blacken his eye? Now if he buys you roses, a right to the nose is really not quite the proper reply... You're so lost in the middle of in-between. Is your destiny canvas, or crêpe de Chine? Will you someday be someone that somebody loves? Are you Valentine candy... or boxing gloves?More Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  quotes [01/31/2008 12:01:00]

Anthony J. Drexel Biddle: What smell?
John Lawless: Well, the alligators, they do have a certain...
Anthony J. Drexel Biddle: [threateningly] WHAT?
[John looks at Mrs. Biddle for help]
Mrs. Cordelia Biddle: [soothingly] We're accustomed to it, dear.
Anthony J. Drexel Biddle: Oh.
John Lawless: [closing the last window] She probably decided to give the room an airing, and forgot to close up again.
Anthony J. Drexel Biddle: [angrily] Well, of all the stupid, idiotic... Get an axe!
Mrs. Cordelia Biddle: [shocked] Anthony!
Anthony J. Drexel Biddle: Not for Florence, for the alligators! Maybe they're still alive in there, we'll chop 'em out!More Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  Movie: The Happiest Millionaire  quotes [01/31/2008 12:01:00]
