Red Dust (1932)
Barbara Willis: [watching the workers pouring liquid rubber] Why, it's milk.
Dennis Carson: Oh no, just rubber. But you could drink it if you care to stretch a point.
Barbara Willis: Oh, I once knew a man who made a joke like that. He was run over by a truck.
Dennis Carson: Were you driving it?
Barbara Willis: Yes!
Dennis Carson: Well, you're out of luck here. We only have ox-carts and every ox knows me personally.
McQuarg: If it was the summer of 1894, I'd play games with you, sister. But life is much simpler now.
Dennis Carson: [after being slapped by Barbara] All right. If that makes you feel any better.
Barbara Willis: Don't you think I could be happy?
Dennis Carson: Would you mind if I made it my job to see that you are?
Barbara Willis: That's a... a very polished little speech for a... barbarian.
Vantine: [sarcastically] I thought we might run up a few curtains and make a batch of fudge while we were planning on what to wear to the country club dance Saturday night.
Vantine: Well for the love of mud! Where am I sleeping - on a racetrack?
Dennis Carson: Come on, lets have it. Who are you? Where'd you come from?
Vantine: Don't rush me, brother. I'm Pollyanna, the Glad Girl.
Dennis Carson: Why'd you get off the boat at all? You know it doesn't stop here again for four week, don't you?
Vantine: Sure I do. Think I'm overjoyed about it? But, its just got to be, that's all.
Dennis Carson: Well, then?
Vantine: I left the boat here for the same reason I took it at Saigon.
Dennis Carson: What reason?
Vantine: I got mixed up in a little trouble and I thought I'd stay out of town 'til the Gendarmes forgot about it.
Dennis Carson: And what a cast iron nerve you've got.
Vantine: You have to have in my line. But, don't worry, big boy, I'll stay out from under foot. I'll even pay for my board if you insist on it nicely.
Vantine: You're not going to leave the corpse here?
Dennis Carson: It's his room. Didn't you know?
Vantine: Honest I didn't. I just took the first room the houseboy showed me. Oh, please you guys. This place is full of lizards and cockroaches as it is.
Dennis Carson: One more won't hurt.
Dennis Carson: Now, you talk too much, but you're a cute little trick at that. Why haven't you been around before?
Vantine: Gee, Denny, I don't want any ceremonies, but, but, turn around and give me the works.
Dennis Carson: Here you are kid.
[stuffs some bills in Vantine's cleavage]
Dennis Carson: It isn't half enough, but, when I get down to Saigon, there'll be more. Keep your chin up.
[pats Vantine twice on her behind]
Barbara Willis: Men think they can stand anything.
Gary Willis: Gosh, think we can stand this bed?
Barbara Willis: Who else is going to?
Barbara Willis: I won't stand for this! Do you think you can treat Gary like - like one of your coolies?
Vantine: Hey, where's the reception committee? It's been a nice little walk. Did you hear that hungry pussy cat back there?
Vantine: [sarcastically] What a pleasant little house party this is gonna be.
Dennis Carson: Now, listen. This woman's decent. You watch your language and stop running around here half naked.
Vantine: I'll stay as comfortable as I like.
Barbara Willis: Well, apologies or even thanks are silly now. I just want you to know that - I owe you a great deal.
Dennis Carson: I'll take your I.O.U.
Vantine: [taking a bath] What's the matter? Afraid I'll - shock the duchess? Don't you suppose she's ever seen a French postcard?
Dennis Carson: You'll let those curtains down if its the last bath you'll ever take!
Dennis Carson: [naked, Vantine jumps in a rain barrel] Get out of there! Say what's the idea?
Dennis Carson: Getting in that barrel?
Vantine: Oh, I don't know? Maybe I'm goin' over Niagara Falls. Whoop!
Barbara Willis: You mean you don't allow wives on your plantation?
Dennis Carson: Women don't belong here - white or native.
Barbara Willis: It's stupid of me to be so frightened.
Vantine: This storm isn't the only thing that has you worried around here, is it? I saw him kick the door shut. He came out with rouge all over his mouth. I suppose he asked to use your lipstick?
[lights a cigarette]
Barbara Willis: I don't know how it happened. I didn't do anything. He didn't have any reason to believe that I'd...
Vantine: I didn't hear any cries for help.
Barbara Willis: Oh, I don't know what came over me. I should have stopped him. I tried, but...
Vantine: But you couldn't. Even when you tried, could you?
Barbara Willis: No. That's why I'm scared.
Barbara Willis: Oh, it's too silly. What do I mean I'm scared? It was just one of those exciting little moment things.
Vantine: Well, watch out for the next moment, honey. It's longer than the first.
Gary Willis: [eating dinner] Those coolies are tough to handle, aren't they?
Dennis Carson: Didn't I tell you they were a lazy bunch?
Gary Willis: Well, I mean, I didn't know they were so sneaky about it. The minute you turn your back on 'em, they're up to something or other they shouldn't be doing.
[Dennis and Barbara look at each other]
Gary Willis: Are they always like that?
Dennis Carson: I'm afraid so.
McQuarg: I was telling him about that time that Malay tried to knife you in the back.
Vantine: Its a great country for that sort of thing.
Dennis Carson: What's the matter with you? Are you crazy?
Vantine: Just a little nauseated. This rain seems to have uncovered a pile of garbage around here.
Dennis Carson: Stop looking through key holes. It's bad for the eyes.
Dennis Carson: Listen, what goes on here is my business.
Vantine: Suppose I were to tell that nice white kid? He'd make it his business, wouldn't he?
Dennis Carson: All those lame cracks won't help you any if I come back and find you've been annoying her.
Vantine: Oh, I wouldn't touch her with your best pair of rubber gloves!
Dennis Carson: Its a dirty, rotten country.
Vantine: And we're dirty, rotten people, I suppose, eh?
Dennis Carson: Sure.
Dennis Carson: Let me tell you this, I'm not a one woman man and I never have been and I never will be. If you want to take your turn...
