Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969)
Alison Leggatt: Headmaster's Wife
Katie : No, the allusion was to the stage which used to be my profession.
Headmaster : Indeed.
Headmaster's Wife : You're an actress, Mrs. Chipping?
Katie : Well, not even my best friends would call me that.
Headmaster's Wife : [snidely] Aw, and what would they call you?
Katie : A soubrette. That's the girl in musical comedy who sings the big number and, in the end, loses the man.
Katie : In real life, they nearly always end up the wives of earls. I nearly did. But luckily... I met Chips.
Headmaster : Chippings' waiting for his wife, I think.
Headmaster's Wife : [skeptical] His wife?
Sutterwick : Flabbergasting. Who on earth?
Headmaster's Wife : Who on earth indeed?
Headmaster's Wife : It's what we've all been asking ourselves ever since we heard the news.
Headmaster : It's apparently someone he met on one of his excursions to the ancient ruins of Pompeii.
Headmaster's Wife : Somewhat of an ancient ruin herself, no doubt.
