Dorothy Shaw: Oh, really? Then why are you wearing that hat?
Lorelei Lee: Excuse me, but what is the way to Europe, France?
Dorothy Shaw: Honey, France is IN Europe.
Lorelei Lee: Well, who said it wasn't?
Dorothy Shaw: Well... you wouldn't say you wanted to go to North America, Mexico.
Lorelei Lee: If that's where I wanted to go, I would.
Lorelei Lee: [Lorelei is holding a tiara] How do you put it around your neck?
Dorothy Shaw: You don't, honey, it goes on your head!

"Don’t you know that a man being rich is like a girl being pretty? You may not marry a girl just because she is pretty, but, my goodness, doesn’t it help? And if you had a daughter, wouldn’t you rather she didn’t marry a poor man? You’d want her to have the most wonderful things in the world and to be very happy. Oh, why is it wrong for me to have those things?"
— Lorelei Lee, in her famous speech to her prospective father-in-law
