  • Midge: Connie, you think the world is full of angels? Listen, it's time for you to grow up.

  • Connie: And I know you, but I didn't know you up in that ring. You looked as if you wanted to kill that guy. As if you would've killed him if they hadn't stopped you.

    Midge: Is that bad?

    Connie: I don't know. I really don't know. But I kept thinking you weren't just hitting that guy in the ring. I kept thinking you were hitting a lot of guys. Different guys. All the guys that ever hurt you. I can't put my finger on it but there's... there's something wrong about that.

    Connie: Thanks, Midge. You've made it easy for me.

    [starts to leave]

    Midge: OK, go on. Feed yourself for a change. Find yourself a job. Go with Haley. Ah, take your bleeding heart out of here.

    [he exits]

  • Grace: Where are you going?

    Midge: Out. I got a date with a lady. You know what a lady is? Nah, how could you?

    Midge: Listen, for 35 bucks, I'd get my head knocked off.

  • Emma: It's funny.

    Midge: What?

    Emma: You know, I didn't like you at first. Well, you know, you never smile. I mean really smile. Not just on the outside.

    Midge: Got to be happy to smile that way.

    Emma: Aren't you happy?

    Midge: Well, right now I am.

    Emma: Then why don't you smile?

    Emma: [he laughs] Midge, why aren't you happy?

    Midge: Happy? It's hard to be happy when you're poor. I've been poor all my life. Real poor. You know what it is to be real poor? Cold poor? Hungry poor?

  • Midge: But you told me to look you up. You said you wanted to manage me.

    Haley: Aw, that was then. This is now. Everything changes. I'm out of the fight business. It stinks. No kidding.

    [inhales through his nose]

    Fern Hymenstein: What?

    Gina: That's the name of the game, baby: Strip-Basketball. It's very simple. You make a basket, we take something off. We make a basket, you take something off.

  • Fern Hymenstein: So come on, where are all your players? We can't play with ourselves.

    Midge: Want me to show you how?

  • Midge: You want to know something? I don't think Mozart's going to help at all.

  • Scottie: Midge, who do you know that's an authority on San Francisco history?

  • Scottie: What's this doohickey?

    Midge: It's a brassiere! You know about those things, you're a big boy now.

    Scottie: I've never run across one like that.

    Midge: It's brand new. Revolutionary up-lift: No shoulder straps, no back straps, but it does everything a brassiere should do. Works on the principle of the cantilevered bridge.

    Scottie: It does?

    Midge: An aircraft engineer down the peninsula designed it; he worked it out in his spare time.

    Scottie: Kind of a hobby, a do-it-yourself kind of thing!
