Yeah, I liked her, too. She was a fine broad, the kind of which they don't make anymore.

Well, Kathleen Turner comes close, I guess, but needs a few more rough years to be called fine.

Yes, Kathleen Turner, or Lauren Bacall. But as Duke Ellington said of James P. Johnson, there never was another.
