Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"Miss Kubelik, one doesn't get to be a second administrative assistant around here unless he's a pretty good judge of character, and as far as I'm concerned you're tops. I mean, decency-wise and otherwise-wise."
  - C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) to Miss Kubelick (Shirley MacLaine)
"You know, I used to live like Robinson Crusoe--shipwrecked among eight million people. Then one day I saw a footprint in the sand, and there you were."
  - Baxter to Kubelick
