Ob die nachfolgenden Dialoge zwischen Lady Astor und Winston Churchill original überliefert oder nur gut erfunden sind, ist ziemlich egal. Sie sind wirklich hübsch – und vor allem very british.

Churchill: „Having a woman in Parliament is like having one intrude on me in the bathroom.“
Lady Astor: „You’re not handsome enough to have such fears.“

Churchill: „What disguise should I wear to the masquerade ball?“
Lady Astor: „Why don’t you come sober, Prime Minister?“

Lady Astor: „If you were my husband, I’d poison your tea.”
Churchill: „Madam, if you were my wife, I’d drink it!“
