Quotes:
From It Happened One Night (1934)
Ellie Andrews: And suppose nobody stops for us?
Peter Warne: They'll stop all right. lt's a matter of knowing how to handle them.
Ellie Andrews: And you're an expert l suppose.
Peter Warne: Expert. And l'll write a book about it. Call it ''The Hitchhiker's Hail.''
Ellie Andrews: There's no end to your accomplishments, is there?
Peter Warne: You think it's simple?
Ellie Andrews: No.
Peter Warne: Well, it is simple. lt's all in that old thumb, see? Some people do it like this. Or like this. All wrong. Never get anywhere. The poor things. But that old thumb never fails. lt's all a matter of how you do it, though. Now you take No. 1, for instance. That's a short jerky movement, like this. That shows independence. You don't care if they stop or not. You got money. Clever. No. 2, that's a little wider movement. Smile goes with this one, like this. That means you got a brand-new story about the farmer's daughter.
Ellie Andrews: You figured that out all by yourself?
Peter Warne: That's nothing. No. 3, that's a pip. That's the pitiful one. When you're broke and hungry, everything looks black. lt's a long sweeping movement like this. Gotta follow through, though.
