Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933)
Florence: All right, then you can go to some nice, warm place, and I don't mean California.
Winton: I've only known you twenty-four hours, but I'm in love with you.
Florence: Doesn't usually take that long.
Florence: Listen, Joan Gale's body was swiped from the morgue, have you ever heard of such a thing as a death mask?
Jim: I used to be married to one.
Florence: Then it came to life and divorced you, I know all about that.
Ivan Igor: For twelve years... twelve awful years... this terrible living dead man, with these burned hands and face, has searched for this fiend. Now the account is closed!
[opens packing case to reveal the body of Worth]
Ivan Igor: If my curiosity is not too great, would you mind telling me what manner of animal it is you are designing?
Ralph Burton: This is one of the Athenian girls for the bacchanal.
Ivan Igor: It would be interesting to know, young man, where and when you studied anatomy.
Florence: [describing the disfigured man's appearance] And that face, it was like an African war mask.
Detective: You mean he was colored?
Florence: I don't know what he was, but he made Frankenstein look like a lily.
Ivan Igor: My dear, why are you so pitifully afraid? Immortality has been the dream, the inspiration of mankind through the ages. And I am going to give you immortality!
Ivan Igor: I offer you immortality, my child. Think of it: in a thousand years you shall be as lovely as you are now!
Charlotte Duncan: Ready, Florence?
Florence: Well, you two will have to struggle along without me, I've got a heavy date. No fouling in the clinches...
Charlotte Duncan: You fiend.
Ivan Igor: My Marie Antoinette, you must not say that to me.
Charlotte Duncan: You fiend!
Ivan Igor: My dear, why are you so pitifully afraid?
Charlotte Duncan: I can just see it now, you telling the landlady you didn't have the rent, but Ralph was awfully sweet.
Charlotte Duncan: It just so happens that the poor people are happier.
Florence: Then marry Ralph, you'll be the happiest couple in the world.
Charlotte Duncan: I don't know what you're going on about, I don't see any millionaires running after you.
Florence: Met one last night, all the money this side of Peoria.
Charlotte Duncan: Who?
Florence: George Winton of the Park Avenue Wintons.
Florence: [after Charlotte hangs up the phone after talking to Ralph] Who was that? Penny Ante?
Charlotte Duncan: Mmm-hmm, why?.
Florence: Just wondering, did you invite him to lunch or did he invite you?
Charlotte Duncan: Well I don't want to offend you, but, frankly, that's none of your business. I don't interfere in any of your affairs.
Florence: I don't have any affairs.
[sits up and shouts]
Florence: What do you mean?
Charlotte Duncan: I don't think you could have a real affair, I don't think you could care for anyone.
Florence: Oh please, I've been in love so many times my heart's calloused, but I never hit one with dough.
Florence: [talking about a case] Can I handle this my way?
Jim: You cannot, I'm still editor of this newspaper.
Florence: Fine, you said I was fired... well, I quit, you give the assignment to somebody else.
Jim: Wait a minute, come here.
Florence: [crying] No, I'm through.
Jim: Come here, sob sister, all right, go ahead, do it your own way.
Florence: As I live and breathe and wear spats, the prince.
Jim: You been doing experiments with scotch and soda again?
Florence: Where'd you get that news item, from a little bird?
Jim: Yeah, have a pleasant vacation?
Florence: Charming, more delightful people crippled.
Jim: [after Florence blows a raspberry in the phone] A cow does that and gives milk besides.
Florence: [to her boss] I'm gonna make you eat dirt, you soap bubble, I'm gonna make you beg for somebody to help you let go. You may mean the world to your mother but you're a...
[walks away without finishing her sentence]
Winton: [to Florence] Will you marry me?
Florence: How much money have you got?
Winton: [laughing] Heaven knows, a lot.
Florence: [smiling] Well that being the case, I'll take it up with the board of directors.
Ivan Igor: You know, I might have felt a little discouraged tonight, but now everything is exactly as it should be.
Charlotte Duncan: I'm glad.
Joe Worth: [talking about their financial situation] I don't hope to impress you, but I've got to tell you we haven't a farthing.
Ivan Igor: That is unfortunate.
Joe Worth: You're right it's unfortunate, 15,000 pounds it's cost me and you say it's unfortunate as though I've spilled soup on my vest.
Ivan Igor: Your money may have been very well invested you never know, something important may come of all this.
Joe Worth: Something important has got to come of all this, you know the rent on this place isn't paid?
Ivan Igor: Is that a fact?
Joe Worth: No I'm lying to amuse myself.
Joe Worth: I've got an idea that will get us out of all this, you and I have absolutely no money but we have got this
[hands Ivan the fire insurance]
Joe Worth: .
Ivan Igor: Fire insurance? Is this your idea of humor my friend?
Joe Worth: Yes fire insurance, that's our way out.
