Smart Blonde (1937)
Barton MacLane: Steve McBride
Steve McBride : [as Torchy tries to get out of the car to go with Steve] No! You wait here!
Torchy Blane : Oh, but I want to go with you!
Steve McBride : This rat hole is no place for a woman!
Torchy Blane : But I'm a newspaperman!
Steve McBride : Well, you just sit quiet and maybe nobody'll notice it.
Steve McBride : You're great! You're colossal! You oughta be a detective.
Torchy Blane : So ought you.
Steve McBride : Hah. Don't make any difference what I was, I'd never be able to figure out what goes on in that dizzy brain of yours!
Torchy Blane : Gonna take you the rest of your life to find out!
Steve McBride : All right, I'll take the job!
Torchy Blane : Are you proposing to me?
Steve McBride : Well, yes!
Dolly Ireland : Say, you two, sh. This is a hospital.
Steve McBride : Oh, we're sorry.
Torchy Blane : Forgive us.
Steve McBride : Maybe she'll feel better if I take her out and feed her. Let's eat.
Torchy Blane : Oh, darling.
Torchy Blane : I don't think it'll get you anything.
Steve McBride : Why not?
Torchy Blane : Because you can't charge these guys with anything. You can only hold them overnight. You'll bring in 20 all together. You'll have to do some shellacking. So, if you work on each one 3 hours - that's 60 hours and you can't hold 'em that long.
Steve McBride : You're just one of these destructive critics. You say everything a guy does is rotten, but, you don't build up anything yourself.
Steve McBride : Quite a library, Fitz.
Fitz Mularkey : You like it?
Steve McBride : Yeah!
Fitz Mularkey : I hired a college kid to pick these books out. I don't read much myself.
Steve McBride : [picks out a book] "Sonnets from the Portuguese."
Fitz Mularkey : Well, I guess I couldn't read that if I wanted to.
Steve McBride : You drive me batty! You get all steamed up about something and then you throw cold water on it.
Steve McBride : Aw, you're aces with me, kid. You know, Torchy, I like you and I ought to be hung for slamming you around the way I have.
Torchy Blane : Skipper...
Steve McBride : Yeah, from now on the rough stuff is out, as far as you're concerned. I'm gonna treat you right.
Torchy Blane : Oh, Skipper!
Steve McBride : I'll never be able to figure out what goes on in that dizzy brain of yours!
