Watching the Eiger Sanction with Clint Eastwood, playing Professor Hemlock...a coed approaches Hemlock saying she would "do anything" for an "easy A". Hemlock tells her to go home and study. Afterwood, one of his contacts (he's a part time CIA assassin who takes on "sanctioned" kills) listening in the other room in his office asks him why didn't you boff the little quiff.

Wow. "Boff" was a 70s slang for screw...usually casual and quick. But "quiff"? I had to look that up:

a sexually promiscuous woman

Comes from

Definitely one to remember for Scrabble!
