The Goodbye Girl (1977) Poster

Patricia Pearcy: Rhonda


  • Elliot Garfield : Enter, sweet Anne.

    Rhonda Fontana : [as she enters]  Do you live alone?

    Elliot Garfield : Yeah! Unfortunately the other people that live here also live alone.

  • Elliot Garfield : You knocked?

    Paula McFadden : May I speak to you in private for a moment?

    Elliot Garfield : Well, it's a bad time how about at breakfast?

    Paula McFadden : Is that a girl in there?

    Elliot Garfield : I certainly hope so.

    Paula McFadden : Not in my house. I will not put up with this sort of thing.

    Elliot Garfield : What sort of thing? You have a girl in your bedroom and I don't object. Uh, Rhonda, this is Paula McFadden. Mac lives just down the bedroom apiece. Mac, this is Rhonda Fontana a gifted and rising young actress. Don't rise.

    Rhonda Fontana : Hi.

    Paula McFadden : Hello. Can we talk? This is serious.

    Elliot Garfield : [to Rhonda]  Take a break.

    Paula McFadden : Out!

    Elliot Garfield : Out?

    Paula McFadden : Her, out! They have motels for that sort of activity. I have an impressionable 10 year old daughter in there and this is not one of the impressions I want her picking up. So you get that "rising young actress" the hell out of there.

    Elliot Garfield : Out of where? Out of my rented apartment that you are staying in out of the goodness of my heart? I will bring home anyone or anthing that I choose, including a one-eyed Episcopalian kangaroo if that happens to be my kinky inclination. As for what is going on in there we're rehearsing Act 1, Scene 4 from Richard the Third. I happen to have a cretin from Mars directing this play and I need all the help I can get. However, if I choose to attempt to have carnal knowledge of that gorgeous bod that'll be her option, my problem and none of your business! And just for the record what do you think little Lucy's impression of what was going on in Mama's bedroom with Tony "Love 'em & leave 'em" DeForrest, huh? Hey Mac! Why don't you turn out some of these lights? We're running up a heck of a bill.
