  • There are two reasons why I am successful in show business and I am standing on both of them.
  • It's loud, it's cheap, it's gaudy. It's like everything I've ever done - I LOVE IT!
  • I'm strictly an enlisted man's girl.
  • I'm a song-and-dance girl. I can act enough to get by. But that's the limit of my talents.

  • [Concerning her and other stars' status as World War II pin-up queens] A lot of these kids don't have any women in their life to fight for - I guess what you would call us girls is kind of their inspiration. It is a grave responsibility.

  • [asked if her status as a new mother threatened her image] I never thought of it. If they don't like it, the devil with 'em. Fact is, I've more fan mail since, especially from servicemen telling me about their wives and babies.
  • [in 1942] Maybe it's a wholesome quality or an American girl quality. People write to me as if I were a sister or friend.
