Should Ladies Behave (1933)
Conway Tearle: Max Lawrence
Geoffrey Cole : [They are playing 20 questions] Is it animal?
Augustus Merrick : [chuckling] No. Animal...!
Geoffrey Cole : Then it must be metal.
Laura Merrick : Yes, that's right!
Augustus Merrick : Aw, what did you say that for?
Laura Merrick : Well, he knows it must be metal if it isn't animal or vegetable. It must be metal.
Augustus Merrick : Well, it might have been mineral.
Laura Merrick : Oh, he knows we wouldn't choose a mineral.
Augustus Merrick : If you won't keep quiet, I won't play!
Laura Merrick : Oh, very well. My turn now. Ask me, Geoffrey.
Geoffrey Cole : Well, let me see... .is it a precious metal?
Laura Merrick : Yes, yes, it must be. Isn't it Max?
Max Lawrence : Yes.
Augustus Merrick : Now you've given it all away!
Laura Merrick : What have I given away?
Augustus Merrick : Well, you've given away that it's something that this fellow knows more about than the rest of us.
Laura Merrick : [laughing] You gave it away yourself just now. Besides the person I asked might have asked anyone.
Augustus Merrick : [pointing to Max] Now he knows it belongs to him.
Laura Merrick : Oh, don't be childish, Augustus.
Augustus Merrick : Aw, childish be hanged, you've given it all away.
Laura Merrick : After all, It's only a game.
Augustus Merrick : Well, I know but I wanted to play it.
Laura Merrick : Well, go ahead and play it.
Laura Merrick : You don't know what it is, do you, Geoffrey?
Geoffrey Cole : Well, the only precious metal that I know of that might belong to Mr. Lawrence is the prize he won for painting last year.
Augustus Merrick : There you are!
Laura Merrick : Isn't that wonderful. He guessed it in three questions. How ever did you do it?
Laura Merrick : [to Augustus] Now, Augustus Merrick, aren't you ashamed that you called him an idiot?
Laura Merrick : [seeing the looking on Geoffrey's face] oh, oh, oh, it's a very popular game. Everyone's playing it all over New York.
Augustus Merrick : Laura, you're a dunce!
Laura Merrick : How dare you insinuate I'm a dunce. You called him an idiot, you know you did.
Laura Merrick : [Geoffrey starts to walk away] Oh, don't go, Geoffrey.
Laura Merrick : [to Augustus] Now you've hurt his feelings.
Augustus Merrick : I done no such thing. You called him an idiot twice.
Laura Merrick : I was only repeating what you said. And I covered it up beautifully. He never would have noticed if you'd kept quiet. Would you Geoffrey?
