(1) Iram Katourian (Jack Lemmon) talking to his mistress Irene (Joanna Gleason) about his wife Millie (Talia Shire) in For Richer, For Poorer (1992):
-- Irene: ' Iram, do you really think that your money has anything to do with Millie's sex drive? '
-- Iram: ' Oh, absolutely. You've heard the phrase: power is an aphrodisiac? That applies to marriage especially. See, a poor man has tremendous power over his wife . She needs him. Without his support, her, the kids... she humps the hell out of him. The richer a man is the less his wife is depending upon him, the less power he has over her and the less sexy he becomes to her. It's a law of nature .'
-- Irene: ' Horniness equals dependence times poverty squared .'
