The next morning, Susan calls David on the telephone. Her brother in South America has mailed her a tame leopard called Baby, and she enlists David to help her transport it to her aunt's farm. Then, having made up her mind that David is the man she's going to marry--though he doesn't know it yet--she does whatever comes to mind to keep him there. It turns out that Susan's aunt is the potential museum donor, so they have to conceal David's identity ''and'' the presence of Baby, while also hunting for the intercostal clavicle, snatched up and buried by the dog.

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: David delivers one to Susan while she's swinging from the ladder.



* ComedicUnderwearExposure: The back of Susan's dress rips off, exposing her panties. David tries to cover it up with his hat, but Susan doesn't quite understand what's going on. Once she does, she makes him walk behind her.



* NonIndicativeName: The misleading movie title. Who would have thought that Baby was a leopard. And the story has little to do with any ''bringing up'', unless you count the drive from New York City to Connecticut.

* HaveAGayOldTime: Averted. Cary Grant's [[{{Improv}} improvised]] line "I just went GAY all of a sudden!" may have been the first ''intentional'' use of the word to mean "homosexual" in mainstream film. It doubles as HilariousInHindsight, as Cary Grant is rumored to have been bisexual. We're pretty sure he had a thing with Randolph Scott.
