-- Ruby: ' Yeah, I can imagine. Just like a carbuncle.'

(2) Princess Centimillia/Maude Hackensacker (Mary Astor) flirting with Tom Jeffers (Joel McCrea) in The Palm Beach Story (1942): ' You will care for me though. I grow on people... like moss.'

(3) Agatha Floud (Lucille Ball) to the butler Humphrey Brinstead (Bob Hope) in Fancy Pants (1950):
-- Agatha: ' The first time I saw you I said to myself: 'Here's a dirty, low-down, lilly-livered coyote. Then, as I got to know you better, I figured you for a filthy, sneaking rat.'
-- Humphrey: ' I grow on people like that.'
