Princess Ann:  I hate this nightgown. I hate all my nightgowns, and I hate all my underwear too.
Countess:  My dear, you have lovely things.
Princess Ann:  But I’m not two hundred years old. Why can’t I sleep in pajamas?
Countess:  Pajamas?
Princess Ann:  Just the top part. Did you know that there are people who sleep with absolutely nothing on at all?
Countess: I rejoice to say I do not.
Princess Ann (Audrey) >Roman Holiday. ♥

Simon Dermott:   The Hotel Ritz. It’s in the Place Vendôme.

“He’s all right! Aren’t you, cat? Poor cat! Poor slob! Poor slob without a name! The way I see it I haven’t got the right to give him one. We don’t belong to each other. We just took up one day by the river. I don’t want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I’m not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It’s like Tiffany’s.   {…}   If I find a place like that then I’d buy some funiture and give the cat a name!”
