One Hundred Men and a Girl (1937)
Leopold Stokowski: [Patsy has come to apologize for telling a newspaper that Stokowski would be conducting her orchestra of jobless musicians] But why did you do it? You must have had a reason.
Patricia "Patsy" Cardwell: Oh, yes! I had a hundred reasons! Would you like to hear them?
Leopold Stokowski: I certainly would.
Patricia "Patsy" Cardwell: [Goes to the door of his study and counts:] One! Two! Three! Four!
[And Stokowski suddenly hears "Hungarian Rhapsody" as clear as a bell inside his own house! He and she go out onto his balcony overlooking the entryway. The 100 men are standing on the stairway, playing]
Patricia "Patsy" Cardwell: Those are my reasons. I thought you'd like to hear them.
[Stokowski listens until the piece is nearly over, and then starts conducting with his hands]
Tommy Bitters: [Having just had Frost light a cigarette for him only to have it explode in his mouth] When are you going to stop playing these cheap childish tricks on me?
John R. Frost: The day you stop playing them on me.
Tommy Bitters: Well, at least mine are funny, and new!
John R. Frost: Oh, yeah? Well, mine work.
