: I do hope you're going to favor us with something special tonight. Kathy Selden
: Please! Don Lockwood
: Say, Hamlet's soliloquy, or the balcony scene from "Romeo and Juliet." Kathy Selden
: Mr. Lockwood! Don Lockwood
: Don't be shy. You'd make about the prettiest Juliet I've ever seen. Really.
: Are you sure it's all right? Being seen with me? Don Lockwood
: You mean lofty star with humble player? Kathy
: Not exactly, but for lunch don't you usually tear a pheasant with Miss Lamont? Don Lockwood
: Kathy, all the stories about Lina and me are sheer publicity. Kathy
: Oh? It certainly seems more than that. From all those columns in the newspapers and articles in the fan magazines... Don Lockwood
: You read the fan magazines? Kathy
: I pick them up at the beauty parlor or the dentist's office, just like anybody. Don Lockwood
: Really? Kathy
: Well... I buy four or five a month. Don Lockwood
: Four or five... Kathy
: But anyway, to get back to the point, you and Miss Lamont do achieve a certain intimacy in all your pictures... Don Lockwood
: Did you say *all* our pictures? Kathy
: I guess if I think about it I've seen eight or nine of them. Don Lockwood
: You know I remember someone saying, "If you've seen one you've seen 'em all". Kathy
: I said some awful things that night, didn't I? Don Lockwood
: No. I deserved them. But I must admit I was hurt by them. So hurt in fact that I haven't been able to think about anything but you ever since.
: Which of my pictures have you seen? Kathy
: I don't remember. I saw one once. Don Lockwood
: You saw one once? Kathy
: Yes, I think you were dueling and there was a girl - Lina Lamont. But I don't go to the movies much. If you've seen one you've seen them all. Don Lockwood
: Thank you. Kathy
: Oh, no offense. Movies are entertaining enough for the masses but the personalities on the screen just don't impress me. I mean they don't talk, they don't act, the just make a lot of dumb show. Well, you know
: like that. Don Lockwood
: You mean like what I do? Kathy
: Well, yes!
: I'm no actor. I never was. Just a bunch of dumb show. I know that now. Cosmo Brown
: Well, at least you're taking it lying down. Don Lockwood
: No. No kidding, Cosmo. Did you ever see anything as ridiculous as me on that screen tonight? Kathy
: Yeah, how about Lina? Don Lockwood
: All right. I ran her a close second. Maybe it was a photo finish. I'm through, fellas. Kathy
: Don, you're not through! Cosmo Brown
: Why of course not. Why, with your looks and figure, you could drive an ice wagon or shine shoes! Kathy
: Block hats! Cosmo Brown
: Sell pencils! Kathy
: Dig ditches! Cosmo Brown
: Or worse still, go back to vaudeville.
: [picks up a cake
] Here's one thing I learned from the movies!
[Throws it at Don but hits Lina
: Now look, Miss Lamont, Don and I... Lina Lamont
: Don? Don't you *dare* call him Don! I was calling him Don before you were born! I mean... You-you were kissing him! Don Lockwood
: *I* was kissing *her*! I happen to be in love with her. Lina Lamont
: That's ridiculous. Everybody knows you're in love with me.
: What's your lofty mission in life that lets you sneer at my humble profession? Kathy Selden
: I'm an actress... Don Lockwood
: Oh... Kathy
: ...on the stage. Don Lockwood
: Oh, on the stage, well I'd like to see you act, what are you in right now? I could brush up on my English, or bring along an interpreter, that is if they'd let in a *movie* actor. Kathy Selden
: I'm not in a play right now, but I will be. I'm going to New York... Don Lockwood
: Oh, you're going to New York and then some day we'll all hear of you, won't we? Kathy Selden as Juliet, as Lady Macbeth, as King Lear. You'll have to wear a beard for that one of course. Kathy Selden
: Laugh all you want, but at least the stage is a dignified profession. Don Lockwood
] Dignified profession. Kathy
: What do you have to be so conceited about? You're nothing but a shadow on film... just a shadow. You're not flesh and blood. Don Lockwood
: Oh, no?
[moves amorously towards her
: Stop! Don Lockwood
: What can I do to you, I'm only a shadow.
: You keep away from me! Just because you're a big movie star, wild parties, swimming pools, you expect every girl to fall in a dead faint at your feet. Well, don't you touch me! Don Lockwood
] Fear not, sweet lady! I will not molest you. I am but a humble jester, and you? You are to far above me!
[he gets out of the car and closes the door on his coat tails
] Don Lockwood
: Farewell, Ethel Barrymore! I must tear myself from your side!
[Don tears his coat. Kathy guffaws as Don walks away
: [sings cheerfully
] Here we are! Sunset and Camden!
: I just had to tell you how good you were. Kathy Selden
: Excuse me. Don Lockwood
: No, no, don't go.
[pointing to cake she came out of at beginning of scene
] Don Lockwood
: Now that I know where you live I'd like to see you home.
: [the lead-in to Don's "Singin' In the Rain" number
] This California dew's a little heavier than usual tonight. Don Lockwood
: Oh really? From where I stand, the sun is shining all over the place...
