East Side of Heaven (1939)
Nicky: [Entering the nightclub] Ah, sad music! - like Russian. Now, I can be depressed while I eat.
Denny Martin: Say, Mr. Bennett, could I speak to you for a minute? Now you can stop me if you've heard this.
Cyrus Barrett Jr.: [Happily anticipating] Oh, you've got a new story?
Denny Martin: No. Oh, no. It's an old story, and you've probably heard it before... but here's how it goes... most scientists agree that one of the few things that can't be preserved in alcohol is a happy home.
Mary Wilson: [Referring to De Wolfe] Denny, please don't be upset by what he said.
Denny Martin: Oh, I'm not upset.
Mary Wilson: Every knock's a boost, you know.
Denny Martin: [Dejectedly] Yeah, I know.
Mary Wilson: And it doesn't matter what anyone says about you as long as they spell your name right.
Denny Martin: [Referring to the baby's safety] Are you daffy? Supposing he fell on his head or something?
Nicky: That's nothing! I fell on my head twice when I was a baby.
Denny Martin: [Sarcastically] Yeah? Well once is enough.
Denny Martin: [after being requested to sing] Now, Mrs. Kelly, I park my voice when I park my cab.
Denny Martin: Sometimes I feel like a cross between a nightengale and a carrier pigeon.
Claudius De Wolfe: And a wiser man than I once said: love is intoxication, marriage the headache, and divorce the spirin tablet.
