Movie Quote of the Day (‘My Little Chickadee,’ As W.C. Fields and Mae West Meet)

Cuthbert J. Twillie [played by W.C. Fields]: “May I present my card?”

Flower Belle Lee [played by Mae West]: “'Novelties and Notions.' What kind of notions you got?”

Cuthbert: “You'd be surprised. Some are old, some are new. Whom have I the honor of addressing, m'lady?”

Flower Belle: “Mmm, they call me Flower Belle.”

Cuthbert: “Flower Belle, what a euphonious appellation. Easy on the ears and a banquet for the eyes.”

Flower Belle: “You're kinda cute yourself.”

Cuthbert: “Thank you. I never argue with a lady.”

Flower Belle: “Smart boy.”— My Little Chickadee (1940), screenplay by Mae West and W.C. Fields, directed by Edward F. Cline
