get more than just a little singed.

Another aspect that I love about this film is Melsa Manton's group of friends. They're the kind of friends that a girl wants to have: they believe in you, and no matter what, they've got your back. Granted, they're a little daffy, but so is Melsa so it all works out in the end. The point is, Melsa has gotten herself in this mess of having to prove that there actually was a body, and though they're not so certain about everything, they're willing to help her and stick with her no matter how much trouble they get into. Tell me, what more could a girl ask for?

Melsa: Helen, you go search the upstairs.
Helen Frayne (Frances Mercer): Oh, no! I was never much of an individualist. If the upstairs has to be searched, we'll search it together.
Dora Fenton (Catherine O'Quinn): Why, that's communism!
Here's another one:
Peter: Listen, before I knew you, I disliked you intensely. When I met you, I disliked you intensely. Even now, I dislike you intensely . . . that is the sensible, sane portion of me . . . but there's an insane side of me that gets a little violent every time I think of you.
Melsa: Getting out of a million dollar lawsuit wouldn't have anything to do with your change of affection, would it?
Peter: You're a nasty creature, aren't you, but in time I'll beat it out of you.
Ooh, ooh, one more:
Peter: We'll go to South America for six months--maybe we'll never come back.
Melsa: Can you afford it?
Peter: No, but you can.
Melsa: Isn't there a drop of red blood in your veins? I want to live on your income!
Peter: That's foolish, who's going to live on yours?
I cannot be the only one who finds those lines hilarious . . .
