Scarlett: "Fiddle-dee-dee! War, war, war. This war talk's spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream."
Scarlett (wide-eyed, and smiling): "Atlanta..." Mammy: "Savannah would be better for ya -- you'd just get in trouble in Atlanta." Scarlett: "What trouble are you talking about?" Mammy: "You know what trouble I was talkin' 'bout. I was talkin' 'bout Mr. Ashley Wilkes. He'll be comin' to Atlanta when he gets his leave, and you settin' there waitin' for 'im, *JUST LIKE A SPIDER*. He belongs to Miss Melanie--" Scarlett: "YOU GO PACK MY THINGS, LIKE MOTHER SAID!"
Scarlett: "I guess I'd be very unpatriotic to hate one of the great heroes of the war. I do declare, I was surprised to see you turn out to be such a noble character." Rhett: "I can't bear to take advantage of your little girl ideas, Miss O'Hara. I'm neither noble, nor heroic." Scarlett: "But you are a blockade runner!" Rhett: "For profit, and profit only." Scarlett: "Are you tryin' to tell me you don't believe in the cause?" Rhett: "I believe in Rhett Butler. He's the only cause I know. The rest doesn't mean much to me."
Rhett (to Scarlett): "No, I don't think I will kiss you. Although you need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you -- you should be kissed, and often. And by someone who knows how."
Scarlett: "You should die of shame, to leave me here alone and helpless!" Rhett: "You --helpless? Heh, heh, heh. Heaven help the Yankees if they capture you!"
Rhett: "You may keep your sanctity, Scarlett. It'll work no hardship on me." Scarlett: "Do you mean to say you don't care?" Rhett: "The world is full of many things, and many people. And I shan't be lonely. I'll find comfort elsewhere." Scarlett: "Well, that's fine. But I warn you, just in case you change your mind... I intend to lock my door." Rhett: "Why bother. If I wanted to come in, no lock could keep me out." (kicks her bedroom door open, breaking it; slugs down a shot of brandy and throws it at Scarlett's portrait on the wall)
Mammy: "It ain't fittin' -- it just ain't fittin'! It ain't fittin'!"
