Myra Hudson: You couldn't possibly at this hour of the morning.
Lester Blaine: Oh, anyone can look at you in the afternoon.
Myra Hudson: But I haven't even got my lipstick on! A woman has to wear lipstick. I feel positively naked without it.
When Myra is in Irene's apartment the first time, she is startled by the doorbell and cowers against the wall. The silhouette of a delivery man slips a flyer for "Fashions at the Fairmont" under the door, though a mail slot is clearly visible.
