(1) Lawrence Paros. The Erotic Tongue (1984): ' Unfortunately, the only question he [the male] has in mind is: Is she easy (since 17 th C), loose (since 15 th C), fast (18 th C), swift (late 19-20 th C), speedy (c. 1923), light (14 th C), or convenient (19 th C)? Does she go all the way (mid-20 th C), the whole route (19-20 th C), or the limit (c. 1916)? Once we have the answer to that question, we have established what is called a reputation (since 18 th C).'

(2) Ned Ravine's (Armand Assante) voice over commentary about Lola Cain (Sean Young) in Fatal Instinct (1993): ' Funny thing about women. They'll do anything to keep up appearances. Take Lola Cain. She'd rather look like a hardcase with bloody knuckles than a soft touch with a soiled reputation. Still, I had to admit, there was something about her that made me sweat bullets.'

(3) Connie (Audrey Meadows) about Cathy (Doris Day) in That Touch of Mink (1962): ' She's going to spend the rest of her life saing: 'I'm not that kind of a girl'. I'm only afraid that some day, before she's finished saying it, she will be.'

(4) Hillary Kramer (Barbra Streisand) to boxer Eddie 'Kid Natural' Scanlon (Ryan O'Neil) in The Main Event (1979): ' I'm not the sleazy motel type.'
