George Cornwallis West married Mrs. Patrick Campbell in April of 1914 shortly after his divorce from Jennie Churchill became final. The couple remained married until her death in 1940. West died in 1951.
Jennie (about her memoirs): I want your advice, Winston. I'm not asking you to write it for me.
Jennie: I'm dreadfully hard up.
Winston: That phrase has been on your lips for as long as I can remember, Mama.
Jennie (to Winston): All politicians should be married. People don't trust bachelors.
George: I've failed you. There's no use pretending.
Jennie: You should be an actor. There wouldn't be a dry eye in the house.
Jennie: George, so long as you're married to me, I refuse to accept that your life has been ruined.
Jennie: You need a woman of your own, Winston.
Jennie: I only wish I were.
Winston: Mama, I do believe writing your memoirs has made you melancholy.
Winston (about Clementine): She hardly knows me.
Jack: That might be an advantage.
George (about Jennie's play): Would it be awfully expensive to put on?
Mrs. Campbell: All plays are awfully expensive to put on.
Leonie (about the play): Is there a lot of adultery?
Jennie: I don't think so. Rather less than in real life, I should say.
Mrs. Campbell (to George): Oh, fidelity. I didn't know the aristocracy believed in that.
Jack: I thought George was a gentleman at least.
Winston: George is a....George.
Jennie (to George): You're a child now. You'll always be a child.
Jennie (to George): I've made so many mistakes in my life. I did so hope you weren't one of them.
