Quotes Containing drag:
Drag queens Noxema/Zima Jackson/Auntie Noxy (Wesley Snipes) and Chichi Rodriquez (John Leguizamo) in To Wong Foo. Thanks for Everything. Julie Newmar (1995): - Noxema: ''Darling, if you''re going to become a drag-queen , you''re gonna have to learn these things. '' - Chichi: ''What do you mean ''a drag queen''? I am a drag queen!'' - Noxema: ''Oh, child, no , no , no . You''re simply a boy in a dress. When a straight man puts a dress and gets his sexual kick he is a transvestite ; when a man is a woman trapped in a man''s body and has the little operation he is a transsexual ; (...) when a gay man has way too much fashion sense for one gender he is a drag-queen . (...) And when a light little Latin boy puts on a dress he is simply a boy in a dress.'' In the end , they agree to give Chichi the temporary title of ''drag princess .''
Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) to Keith in Some Kind of Wonderful (1987): 'It must be a drag to be a slave to the male sex-drive .'
Isabel Lorrison (Ava Gardner) to Brandon Bourne (James Mason) in East Side, West Side (1949): ''Maybe it wasn''t love , maybe it was only chemistry , or the right combination, or a miracle, but most people drag through their whole lives without finding it .''
