    • Aggie: It be nice having Cary Grant hanging around the house.
      Doris: I don't want Cary Grant hanging around the house. Aggie: How about Rock Hudson?
      Doris: Or Rock Hudson.

      An indirect allusion to Doris' having starred with Rock Hudson in "Send Me No Flowers" (1964), "Lover Come Back" (1961), "Pillow Talk" (1959) and Cary Grant in "That Touch of Mink" (1962).
