Ever Since Eve (1937)
Marion Davies: Marge Winton
President of the Purity League : Mr. Mason? Miss Winton? What on earth? What's going on
Marge Winton : Oh, just the usual office routine. Mr. Mason was giving me dictation. But, he was a little too fast!
Purity League Manager : Miss Winton choose to misunderstand purely a friendly gesture.
President of the Purity League : Miss Winton this is disgraceful! I'm sure Mr. Mason meant no harm.
Sadie Day : Do you mean to say you've been fired again? Well, I thought this Mr. Mason liked you so much that he...
Marge Winton : So much that I had to throw two five-pound books at him to keep him away.
Sadie Day : Five-pound - ? What did he do?
Marge Winton : Oh, he started to show me a few new handies. But, after the first, I told him to stop.
Marge Winton : I could guess the rest.
Sadie Day : Oh, ain't men terrible. Though, I must confess that my boss certainly behaves like a gentlemen to me - darn it.
Marge Winton : [Reading a wanted ad] Stenographer wanted for a Henderson, Barton & Lowell.
Sadie Day : What's their business?
Marge Winton : It says they're importers of spices, seeds, oil and sardines.
Sadie Day : Sardines? That sure sounds romantic.
Marge Winton : I don't want romance. All I want is a job!
Lowell : I was wondering if you mind staying on for an hour or so. I'd like to go over the Driskill Sardine statement.
Marge Winton : Why, you okayed it this morning. I mailed it out with the banana oil contracts.
Lowell : Oh, did I? It must have slipped my mind. Well, anyway, I'd like you to stay on. There's a few things I'd like to go over with you.
Marge Winton : Well, I was planning to go out for dinner.
Lowell : There's no reason we can't have dinner up here.
Marge Winton : Oh, but, I...
Lowell : I'll give you a buzz in a few minutes.
Marge Winton : Yes, Mr. Lowell.
Marge Winton : [cocktail and cigarette in hand] So, when she refused to marry him, why, he got a job on a ukulele ranch down in Honolulu. You know, breaking in wild ukuleles.
Marge Winton : Say, how about me?
Employment Clerk : You're not the type.
Marge Winton : What do mean I'm not the type? I've had lots of experience. I know office routine upside down.
Employment Clerk : Your face is against you.
Marge Winton : What's wrong with it?
Employment Clerk : Not a thing. That's just the point. The Belldon Publishing Company never hires good looking girls. This is one job were looks don't count.
Marge Winton : How do you do Mr. McCoy? Did I hear Jake say you were taking us all down to the beach? Say, won't that be marvelous! I've just been dying for one of those nice shore dinners. And then afterwards, we can go in the old mill. You know, the place were you ride around in little boats - in the dark.
Abbie Belldon : For the next series, pick a new pseudonym.
'Mabel' DeCraven : Prudence Parker?
Abbie Belldon : No, not Prudence. Let me see?
Marge Winton : Priscilla!
Abbie Belldon : Excellent! How's it sound to you 'Mabel'?
'Mabel' DeCraven : That's fine. Priscill - they might call me Prissy for short?
Abbie Belldon : They won't. I'll make it a house rule.
'Mabel' DeCraven : Miss Lansing will see that he's charmingly entertained at the Bayview.
Marge Winton : The Bayview? Oh, goodness. Did I tell Mr. Matthews the Bayview?
'Mabel' DeCraven : You certainly did.
Marge Winton : Oh, isn't that awful. I meant to tell him the St. George. Oh, I'm afraid you'll think I'm awfully stupid.
'Mabel' DeCraven : Yes, I do. Stupid like a fox.
Marge Winton : Miss Lansing's jealousy is quite flattering. Goodbye, Mr. Matthews. If you decide you still want me to work for you, you know my address. Wire me. Goodbye, Miss - Miss - whatever your name is!
Sadie Day : What happened? I thought you were all set? You like the boss, the boss likes you. You told me the work was getting along so swell?
Marge Winton : Yes, but, the boss has a girl.
Sadie Day : Oh! I see. Marge, have you got a case on this guy?
Marge Winton : Oh, don't be ridiculous. I've never thought about him twice in that way - eh - very much.
Freddy Matthews : I know you.
Marge Winton : You do?
Freddy Matthews : Of course, you're the girl who dropped her bag that day in the cocktail bar and I picked up all those things.
Marge Winton : Oh, was that you?
Freddy Matthews : Yes, I guess I didn't make much of an impression, did I?
Marge Winton : Well, you see, you were under the table most of the time.
Marge Winton : Perhaps you'd like to join me? Do you like canned corned beef hash?
Freddy Matthews : No. However, I have a very good idea. Why don't you come out and have dinner with me?
Marge Winton : Oh, but I couldn't do that.
Freddy Matthews : Why not?
Marge Winton : Well, I hardly know you.
Freddy Matthews : You'll know be better after dinner.
Freddy Matthews : You - it's strange.
Marge Winton : What?
Freddy Matthews : I have a funny feeling that I am not I and you are not you.
Marge Winton : Who do you think I am then?
Freddy Matthews : We're two totally different people in a world of our own. A world that started a few hours ago. A world just for the two of us and nobody else.
Freddy Matthews : I dislike brunettes. I dislike them! They make me moody. I like girls who are blonde and about five feet three and weigh about 112 pounds.
Marge Winton : I get my dime back. I weigh 118.
Freddy Matthews : Well, six more pounds to have and to hold.
Marge Winton : Oh, Freddy, what delightful nonsense.
Abbie Belldon : Where's Marge?
Freddy Matthews : Marge is gone forever. This is Sadie.
[pointing to Marge]
Jake Edgall : Now, wait a minute. Let's get this straight. Who are you?
[pointing to Marge]
Marge Winton : Sadie.
Abbie Belldon : Who is Sadie?
Sadie Day : Marge.
Jake Edgall : Why?
'Mabel' DeCraven : Oh, I get it. She's Sadie that's really Marge. Just like I'm Mabel when I'm not Mike.
Jake Edgall : Who am I?
Marge Winton : You're Jake.
Jake Edgall : Well, now we're gettin' somewhere. If she ain't Marge anymore. And she's Sadie. Who have I been keepin' company with?
Sadie Day : Me.
Jake Edgall : Who are you?
Sadie Day : Susie.
Jake Edgall : Then, I never met you before?
Sadie Day : That's right.
Marge Winton : I wish you'd get your names straight.
Freddy Matthews : So do I.
