Nick and Nora Charles' bantering is still fresh today in this first of their outings on screen.

Nora: I think it's a dirty trick to bring me all the way to New York just to make a widow of me.
Nick: You wouldn't be a widow long.
Nora: You bet I wouldn't.
Nick: Not with all your money.
Nora (worried that he will get hurt): Take care of yourself.
Nick (laughing): Why sure I will.
Nora: Don't say it like that! Say it as if you meant it.
Nick: Well, I do believe the little woman cares.
Nora: I don't care. It's just that I'm used to you, that's all.
the final sequence on a westbound transcontinental train, Nick
and Nora are traveling back to California and sharing an adjacent
cabin with newlyweds Dorothy and Tommy. They finally adjourn to
their respective rooms late into the night. There are upper and
lower bunks in Nick's and Nora's room. Nora asks that he put Asta
in her lower bunk with her for the night. Nick laughs: "Oh,
yeah," tosses Asta up onto the top bunk, and joins Nora in
the lower bunk. Asta covers his eyes with his paw.
