** There's also an early scene where, after Sylvia's just gone off on one of her cattier tangents, one of the characters (known for her sarcastic oneliners), seemingly apropos of nothing, offers a plate of nuts to her. Seems innocent enough until you consider that "nuts to you" is an early 20th century equivalent of "go f- yourself."

* TheGhost: All the men.

* TheGhost: All the men.men, but especially Stephen. To get across Stephen's confrontation with Mary, the maid describes the conversation to the cook.



* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: The movie has Crystal lighting up whenever she's being really evil, like when she's being catty to Mary or when she's flirting with an old boyfriend on the phone after marrying Stephen.



* WithFriendsLikeThese: Sylvia is gleeful over the Haines' marriage troubles, sets Mary up for an appointment with the manicurist to have her hear the rumor of Stephen's affair, and eggs Mary on to confront Crystal and then divorce him rather than reconcile.
