Quotes

Marky's Father: I want to bet twenty dollars on Dream Prince to win.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Not with an IOU.

Marky's Father: But I've already lost over five hundred dollars with you.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I wouldn't take an IOU from my best friend. If I had a best friend.

Marky's Father: Now, Jones, be reasonable. I don't have the twenty on me, but I can get it.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Then get it.

Marky's Father: But I might not be back in time for the race.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: That's your tough luck. No markers!

Bangles Carson: Looking for something?

Detective Reardon: Yeah. A kid.

Bangles Carson: Another kid get lost?

Detective Reardon: No, it's the same kid. One of those orphan societies is on our necks. You know, afraid she might have fallen into the hands of the wrong people. Sorrowful, you mind if I take a run up to that new apartment of yours?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: What for?

Detective Reardon: You know, just for the record.

Bangles Carson: Hiya, Tightwad.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Hello, Golddigger.

Marky's Father: Look, this is my little girl. I'll leave her here while I go for the money.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I ain't taking no dolls for security.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Look, Daddy, he's running away. Is he afraid?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Take her down off there. You get down off there.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: You're afraid of my daddy. Or you're afraid of me. You're afraid of something.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: All right, take his marker. A little doll like this is worth twenty bucks any way you look at it.

Regret: Yeah, she ought to melt down for that much.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Dizzy, when that guy comes back for the little doll, don't you turn her over to him until you get that twenty bucks.

Dizzy Memphis: But she's gone, boss.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: So he sneaked her out, eh? Serves me right. Every time I get big-hearted -

Regret: When was the other time?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Why didn't you watch her?

Regret: What am I, a nursemaid? What'd you take her as a marker for, anyway?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I don't know.

Doc Chesley: Yes?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: You are the kind keeper.

Bangles Carson: The kind keeper of what, Marky?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Oh, you handed him a line?

Bangles Carson: Yeah. I was afraid he'd put the slug on you.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Talking like that ain't nice.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: What's nice?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Being a good girl is nice.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: I'm a bad girl. Nurse says so.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Why?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Nurse says there's somebody named God, and a girl's bad if she does't pray to Him every night. Daddy says there's nobody named God.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: When did he say that?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: When my mommy went away.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I guess your daddy got a bad break.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Can you write a letter to God like you do to Santa Claus?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: No, that's where praying comes in.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Bad girls like me can't pray.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Aw, you ain't a bad girl.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Then show me how to pray. I want to ask God for something.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: You would. You lay down and go to sleep.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Regret knows everything. I'll ask Regret to show me how to pray.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Don't you go asking that mug Regret about anything. I'll show you how to pray.

Bangles Carson: [about Marky] Well, you can't leave her here.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Afraid of the cops?

Bangles Carson: No, I'm afraid of the kid. I don't want her here. I'm not going sappy over her! I won't, see!

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: You're already sappy over her.

Bangles Carson: But you're not?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: No, she's just something I can't get rid of, because she's tangled up in a race deal.

Bangles Carson: She wasn't tangled up in a deal the first night you got her. You could've unloaded her then!

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: You didn't stage no riot when she busted up your song in a night club!

Bangles Carson: You start reading about King Arthur to her!

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Yeah, and you take her out and buy her a lot of new clothes!

Bangles Carson: And you sit still for the bite without even being chloroformed!

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: All right, I did pay! Her clothes were falling off her.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Trying to hand me mush!

Bangles Carson: Don't you like it?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: No!

Bangles Carson: Say, "No, thank you." Say it like this: "No, thank you, Bangles. I don't care for any."

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: What for?

Bangles Carson: Well, you used to say "thank you" and "no, thank you."

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: I used to be a sissy.

Bangles Carson: Now where did you get that?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Ain't telling! And I don't want no mush!

Bangles Carson: Don't you like me anymore?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Well...

Bangles Carson: You used to like me when I was Lady Guinevere.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: [laughs] There's no Lady Guinevere.

Bangles Carson: Oh yes there is, dear. Just like there's a Charger.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: There ain't no Charger.

Bangles Carson: But you saw him.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: They took him away.

Bangles Carson: We jipped that kid, and now she's just a mug like us.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: What's wrong with us?

Bangles Carson: When we first met her, she was a sweet kid. Nice people would've been glad to have her. Now she hasn't got a chance.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Because she's a little tough now?

Bangles Carson: She's plenty tough now. They want kids that have been brought up right.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Who does?

Bangles Carson: Nice people. You know, young married couples with no kids of their own.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Why don't you get nice and adopt her?

Bangles Carson: Because I'm not a young married couple. You'd love to see her get into a good home, wouldn't you? Well, she won't, not unless we can change her back into the kid she was.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: All right, get out of bed. I'll show you how to pray, sort of. But don't you tell anybody, see?

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Is it a secret?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Between you and me. Kneel down. Put your hands together like this. Elbows on the bed. Shut your eyes.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Are you gonna shut yours, too?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: No. I gotta see that you do it right.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Now what do I do?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Say like this: Now I lay me down to sleep,

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Now I lay me down to sleep,

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: If I should die before I wake,

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: If I should die before I wake,

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Make me a good little girl.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: [to Sorrowful] You wanna be a little girl?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: No, no. Make *you* a good little girl.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: [praying] Make me a good little girl.

[to Sorrowful]

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: Is that all?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: That's the works.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: But when do I ask for what I want?

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: You better do it right now, while your prayer's still hot.

Marthy Jane, Little Miss Marker: [praying] Please, God, buy Sir Sorry a new suit of clothes.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Using my place as a hideout from a Good Time Charlie.

Bangles Carson: Aw, shut up.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: Alright, take it on the lam.

Bangles Carson: As soon as I get some clothes.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: You're wearing clothes.

Bangles Carson: Not going out at this time a day with these clothes on.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: If you went home nights instead of hanging around...

Bangles Carson: Maybe I could get home nights if you didn't go shout your head off and wake up kids.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I wouldn't have to shout my head off if you stayed away.

Bangles Carson: Oh it won't happen again. I'll give you plenty air.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I'll take gallons of it.

Bangles Carson: Better than that, I'll give you oceans of it.

Sorrowful 'Sir Sorry' Jones: I'll take three oceans worth.

Bangles Carson: You would, it's free.
