A Letter to Three Wives (1949) Poster

Connie Gilchrist: Ruby Finney



  • Mrs. Finney : Can't we have peace in this house even on New Year's Eve?

    Sadie : You got it mixed up with Christmas. New Year's Eve is when people go back to killing each other.

  • Mrs. Finney : "Good night, Mother dear, and don't wait up." If a daughter of mine ever really talked like that I'd cut her tongue out!

  • Mrs. Finney : Of all the times to quit a job, just before Christmas with all the bills due and five months due on the icebox!

    Sadie : You got to make up your mind whether you want your kids happy or your icebox paid up.

  • Porter Hollingsway : OK. OK, you win. I'll marry you. How about it?

    Lora Mae Hollingsway : Thanks... for nothing.

    Porter Hollingsway : Now what kind of an answer is that?

    Lora Mae Hollingsway : I don't know. I just felt like it. That's all.

    Porter Hollingsway : We'll do all right, kid. We're starting out where it takes most marriages years to get, out in the open. No jokers. You'll see. You've made a good deal, Lora Mae.

    Mrs. Finney : [walking into the room]  Lora Mae, honey, if you want me I'll be over at the Callahans' playing...

    Lora Mae Hollingsway : Happy new year, Ma. We're gonna get married.

    Mrs. Finney : ...Bingo!
