Movie Quote of the Day – Holiday Affair, 1949 (dir. Don Hartman)
Steve Mason: You were married to a man you were in love with once, you ought to know it’s impossible to be safe and secure when you’re in love. What are you trying to do, crawl into a gave and hide from everything that’s going to stir you up?
Connie Ennis: If I want to.
Steve Mason: That’s a neat trick if you can get away with it, but I don’t think you can. Life is going to crawl right down there with you and kick your teeth in.
Connie Ennis: I’ll manage all right.
Steve Mason: You gotta take everything that’s coming to you, Connie. All the surprises, good and bad.
Connie Ennis: I can’t afford surprises.
Steve Mason: Every surprise isn’t a telegram from the War Department, you know.
