* MaybeEverAfter: "Shut up and deal."
** "We'll send him a fruitcake every Christmas."
*** The script has "I'm going to send him a fruitcake every Christmas", so the credit for strengthening MaybeEverAfter feeling probably goes to Miss [=MacLaine=].

* MaybeEverAfter: Baxter seems to be totally head over heels about Fran; she, on the other part, is severely traumatized by her past love experience and had only realized a few minutes ago that he is a guy who can make her happy. Though she came back to his titular apartment on the New Year Eve for the film's ending, they don't share a kiss or even embrace, and she doesn't reciprocate his love confession. However, her glowing smile and a hint that she's left her abusive romantic interest for good allow enough space for optimism, along with the immortal last line: "Shut up and deal."

C.C. "Buddy Boy" Baxter (Lemmon), a lowly office drone at a New York insurance film, has just found the solution to climbing up the corporate food chain: let the company bigwigs use his apartment as a trysting place for their extramarital affairs. His boss, J.D. Sheldrake (Creator/FredMacMurray), discovers this, and promotes Baxter on the condition that he lets him use the apartment for his own affair. Naturally, Baxter accepts the condition, but things turn very complicated when he finds out that his crush, elevator operator Fran Kubelik ([=MacLaine=]), is Sheldrake's other woman.
