Fred Graham 'Petruchio'
: The studio has fired you. You have the worst temper in show biz. You bit King Kong and gave him rabies! First Man: Miss Vanessi, you've been my ideal for years. I married my wife 'cause in a certain light, when it's kind of dark, she might pass for your sister. Harrison Howell: Graham, you're a man of the world. We both know that women need a firm hand from time to time. In fact, between you and me, they like it. Fred Graham 'Petruchio': 'Women should be struck regularly, like gongs'? Harrison Howell: Who said that? Fred Graham 'Petruchio': Noel Coward. Harrison Howell: Now there's a man I'd like to meet! A straight talker! Fred Graham 'Petruchio': Not exactly...! Harrison Howell: Thank you Graham. I think I can make this little woman happy.
