Nonsense. You’ve got an old-fashioned idea that divorces are something that last forever, till “death do us part”. Why, a divorce doesn’t mean anything today, Hildy. Just a few words mumbled over you by a judge. We’ve got something between us nothing can change.     

The only man who could make a love scene comfortable was Clark Gable. He was born graceful, he knew what to do with his feet, and when he took hold of you, there was no fooling around. - Rosalind Russell

“I remember talking to Judy when she was playing the Palace.  ‘Well,’ I said, ‘you’re knocking them out of your seats; isn’t it  great?’ ‘Yes,’ she said. ‘And I found out one thing. I’ve found out I  have an audience, and no one can take that away from me.’ It was true.  Even though she had been dropped from films, she had an audience until  the day she died.” - Rosalind Russell
