Made for Each Other (1939)
Jane: The next time you go out and get tanked, if you don't take me, I'll get a divorce.
Lily, Cook #3: Never let the seeds stop you from enjoying the watermelon.
Jane: That's all right if you've got a watermelon.
Lily, Cook #3: You mustn't say that, Miss Mason. Yous got your watermelon, but you chokes yourself up on all them little seeds. I always say "Spit 'em out! Spit 'em out before they spoil the taste for the melon."
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: We met on Boston Common the night I arrived. And, eh, I'd had a bite at Thompson's Spa and then I took a little stroll around the Common and I Saw Here Standing There.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: You married her?
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Yes sir.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: Quick work, wasn't it?
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Yes sir. Oh, Judge, we, we knew the moment looked at each other. We, we knew the moment we looked at each other.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: You did?
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Yes sir.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: Last year there were nearly a half a million divorces in this country. Congratulations, Mason.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Judge, eh, we, eh, when two people get married they usually go on a honeymoon.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: I didn't. I don't approve of honeymoons. A waste of time.
Mrs. Harriet Mason: Oh my dear, if you have a talent for writing take my advice and develop it while your young. One needs all one's time and energy for a career.
Jane: Don't you think marriage is a career in itself?
Mrs. Harriet Mason: Oh, in deed, emphatically! That's why one mustn't rush into it pell-mell.
Mrs. Harriet Mason: Marriage is a business - a very serious business, a partnership in the strictest sense of the word. One must prepare for it. There is so many things to learn.
Jane: That Carter thought it was funny. He laughed. Oh, I hate that, that liver pill.
Jane: I hate that Judge Do-nothing. I wish someone would step on that ear thing of his.
Mrs. Harriet Mason: You have the wine glasses on the wrong side, Annie.
Annie - Cook #1: The left side was the right side where I worked before.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Jane, for Pete's sake, what did you do with the Witch-hazel?
Jane: I didn't have it!
Jane: Here, hook me up.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Yeah, its a pretty nice neck you got there.
Jane: As nice as Eunice Doolittle's?
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: You know, what do I know about Eunice Doolittle's neck. I never even noticed she had one.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Hey, you know what time it is? Get dressed, will ya!
Jane: Well, I am dressed.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Well, come on then.
[as he walks into the living room]
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Granite puss will be here any minute.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: Good evening.
Jane: I won't say anything. I won't say anything. I won't say anything.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: What do you think? Its a present from old Granite puss.
Jane: I bet its a summons.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: No, its a bank book. Look. Aw, he's deposited ten dollars. Hey, that's a lot of money for the little guy.
Jane: I hope it doesn't plunge Judge Doolittle into bankruptcy!
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: I don't know, after that hospital bill, he's got more cash in the bank than I do!
Mrs. Harriet Mason: Well, I think it is very considerate of Judge Doolittle to think about the baby's future.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Mother. Mother, come here. Jane, look. He's smiling at me! He's smiling at me!
Mrs. Harriet Mason: That's gas.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: Mason, these are extraordinary times, for all of us. Some of our biggest clients are affected. They all complain that they are practically working for the government. Most of them claim that it will be all they can do to stay in business 'til the next election. So, they're cutting expenses right and left. We're the first to feel it. Naturally, we must do something about it.
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Naturally.
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: What?
John Horace 'Johnny' Mason: Naturally!
Judge Joseph M. Doolittle: I don't want to cut down the personnel of my staff if I can possibly help it. It wouldn't be constructive. So, the only way out, as I see it, it to tighten our belts. I'm asking everyone to take a 25% cut. I'm taking a, a substantial cut in my own, personal drawing account. Its a sacrifice; but, it hits all of us - and these are days of sacrifices.
