Katharine Hepburn: I’ve been famous - for better or worse - for a long time now… I wonder if you know what that really means.
Howard Hughes: I got my fair share of press on Hell’s Angels. I’m used to it.
Katharine Hepburn: Are you?… Howard, we’re not like everyone else. Too many acute angles. Too many eccentricities. We have to be very careful not to let people in or they’ll make us into freaks.
Howard Hughes: Kate, they can’t get in here. We’re safe.
Katharine Hepburn: They can always get in. When my brother killed himself there were photographers at the funeral. There’s no decency to it.
