While the term may have been used in slang that Grant and Hepburn were familiar with, it was ad-lib, not in the script. The scene in question has Grant's character wearing a woman's negligee, and when asked about it, replies, "Because I just went gay all of a sudden," the double entendre meaning "happy" or referencing homosexuality. The general public did not really become familiar with the term until the 1960ss, but no one in the film ever confirmed the reference (Russo 47).

Fate is another Greek word meaning the three personifications of destiny in Greco-Roman stories and myths. The three Fates were Clotho, the spinner; Lachesis, the measurer of the thread of life; and Atropos, the cutter of the thread of life.
