Madeleine Damien (Hedy Lamarr): The whole truth about the human soul is a complicated proposition.
"Madeleine Damien is the fashion editor of a slick Manhattan magazine by day and a lively party girl by night. Unfortunately, the pressures of her job, including kowtowing to a hefty advertiser, and her bad luck with men are driving her to a breakdown. She seeks the help of a psychiatrist, and under his orders, quits her job and moves into a smaller flat under a new identity. She becomes interested in painting and a handsome neighbour. He soon finds out about her past when an ex-suitor implicates her in a murder." (Daniel Bubbeo, IMDb).
Victor Kranish (Paul Cavanagh): Madeleine you're a bundle of lies, a lovely bundle of lies, beautifully bound together.
Freddie (Archie Twitchell): I always drink, particularly when I'm with you.
Madeleine Damien: Am I that hard to take sober?
Freddie: You're a voluptuous pain in the neck.
Felix Courtland: As a matter of fact you don't look like an art editor, more like a work of art. Madeleine Damien: Mr Coulthard, I think you're a very dangerous man.
Madeleine Damien: I was doing it my own way, playing by my own rules and nobody was hurt.
Dr. Richard Caleb, Psychiatrist (Morris Carnovsky): Nobody but yourself.
Dr. Richard Caleb: You've been insulting yourself Miss Damian, insulting your body and insulting your soul.
Madeleine Damien: You're not helping me, you're insulting me.
Dr. Richard Caleb: You've been insulting yourself Miss Damian.
Dr. Richard Caleb: You're looking for security from someone else instead of building it in yourself.
Victor Kranish: Let's face it, she's a changed woman.
Ethel Royce (Natalie Schafer): She'll never change, she just got herself a new set of words, that's all.
Dr. Richard Caleb: And you don't want anyone to see inside, perhaps you don't even want to take a look yourself. My, women haven't the courage to face themselves so they look for escape on one excitement after another.
Dr. Richard Caleb: You don't care because it's too much fun.
