Man in crowd (just before woman in crowd deliters haymaker to him,l from "Double Wedding" with William Powell and Myrna Loy): "I knew there was a woman behind it. Whenever there's trouble, there's always a woman behind it.'
Mr. Waverly, ruefuly (head of U.N.C.L.E., from "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."): "They can cause trouble for you, can't they.' (referring to young dames, and specifically one yhoung dame who had gotten his youthful self into trouble).
The list just goes on and on. Old movies and TV shows are almost unanimous: Dames (women) mean trouble for us poor men. And that was BEFORE men let women remove the velvet glove, and show only the iron fist beneath, as they no longer even PRFETEND.
