The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) Poster

Myrna Loy: Milly Stephenson



  • [after Peggy tells her parents that they never had any trouble in their relationship] 

    Milly Stephenson : "We never had any trouble." How many times have I told you I hated you and believed it in my heart? How many times have you said you were sick and tired of me; that we were all washed up? How many times have we had to fall in love all over again?

  • Peggy Stephenson : I've made up my mind.

    Al Stephenson : Good girl.

    Milly Stephenson : To do what?

    Peggy Stephenson : I'm going to break that marriage up! I can't stand it seeing Fred tied to a woman he doesn't love and who doesn't love him. Oh, it's horrible for him. It's humiliating and it's killing his spirit. Somebody's got to help him.

  • Milly Stephenson : What do you think of the children?

    Al Stephenson : Children? I don't recognize 'em. They've grown so old.

    Milly Stephenson : I tried to stop them, to keep them just as they were when you left, but they got away from me.

  • Milly Stephenson : You're crazy.

    Al Stephenson : No. Too sane for my own good.

  • Milly Stephenson : You'll probably have to make a speech.

    Al Stephenson : It's my plan to meet that situation by getting plastered.

  • Al Stephenson : We don't need to worry about that child. She can take care of herself.

    Milly Stephenson : That's what she thinks.
