Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Jerry: In a half an hour, we'll no longer be 
Mr. and Mrs. Funny, isn't it?
Lucy: Yes, it's funny that everything's the way 
it is on account of the way you feel. 
Jerry: Huh? 
Lucy: Well, I mean, if you didn't feel that way you do, 
things wouldn't be the way they are, would they? 
I mean, things could be the same if things were different. 
Jerry: But things are the way you made them. 
Lucy: Oh, no. No, things are the way you think I made them. 
I didn't make them that way at all. 
Things are just the same as they always were, only, 
you're the same as you were, too, so I guess
things will never be the same again.

It's a toss up between My Favorite Wife and The Awful Truth.

I recently saw two of her lesser known films that I liked "Lady in a Jam" and her last film "It Grows on Trees" which while absurd was genial and amusing. Also "Anna & the King of Siam and Never a Dull Moment are good films.

Two I just couldn't abide-"Cimarron" (ghastly and such a shame because I loved the book) and "I Remember Mama"-sorry Gregory-it was so syrupy sweet it made my teeth hurt.
