Quotes

  • Mavis Pruitt  

    I'm going to tell you something, Mrs. Flood. Every time a door is slammed in a marriage... every time a woman turns her face away because she's tired or unwilling... there's someone waiting. Someone like me.

  • Executive  

    We sell new machinery. What do you know about drilling equipment for oil fields?

  • Rubin Flood  

    Not a thing.

  • Executive  

    Then why should we hire you?

  • Rubin Flood  

    You chew tobacco, mister?

  • Executive  

    I beg your pardon!

  • Ed Peabody  

    It's a new world, and we don't belong in it.

  • Rubin Flood  

    Any world I'm in, I belong in!

  • Rubin Flood  

    Well, I sold everything else in my time. I guess I can sell myself.

  • Rubin Flood  

    Oh, you always got a excuse. But the plain fact is, a lot of time goes by without our making love. Cora, this is a marriage!

  • Cora Flood  

    There are other things in marriage.

  • Rubin Flood  

    Yeah, but the part I'm talking about is natural! It's normal and it's necessary! God planned it that way, and ain't nobody come up with anything better since Adam and Eve!

  • Rubin Flood  

    Hogwash! Malarky! Horse manure! Woman you oughta get yourself a broom and ride over the housetops! You oughta buy yourself a sheet and poke two holes in it and go around setting fires! Or better still, get yourself a big piece of tape and put it over your mouth because you're too ignorant to live! Lottie sometimes I'm ashamed to be related to you even by marriage!
