Affectionately Yours (1941)
'Pappy' Cullen: Ricky, you gotta settle a bet.
'Rickey' Mayberry: What's on your mind, Pappy?
'Pappy' Cullen: The man standing over there says your next move is to Budapest, and I say you're going to Egypt. I win, don't I?
'Rickey' Mayberry: You both lose. I'm going to Moscow.
'Pappy' Cullen: You just came from Russia!
Irene Malcolm: [facetiously] He won't give up until he finds Ninotchka.
'Pappy' Cullen: [he and Ricky laugh hysterically] That's a good one!
Irene Malcolm: It's not that good!
'Rickey' Mayberry: I'd marry ya in a split second if I didn't have a wife.
Irene Malcolm: [holding out her arms to dance] Here Cullen, fill these up, will ya?
Irene Malcolm: [sarcastically to Cullen] Thanks for dancing on your knees.
Irene Malcolm: [Ricky just announced he has to leave.] Awfully sudden, wasn't it?
'Rickey' Mayberry: We're both in the same racket, Irene. When an editor tells you to go...
Irene Malcolm: I wish I was your editor, Ricky.
'Rickey' Mayberry: Do you, darling?
Irene Malcolm: You bet.
[speaking in a double entendre]
Irene Malcolm: I'd love to be able to tell you where to go.
'Rickey' Mayberry: That would be swell.
[he realizes what she meant, and gets a strange look on his face]
Irene Malcolm: Going my way?
'Rickey' Mayberry: [suprised] What? What are you doing here?
Irene Malcolm: Listen, Prague was wonderful. Here you are going to Moscow, I'm going to New York, and we're both on the same plane.
Sue Mayberry: Rickey! Rickey! Rickey!
Irene Malcolm: Uh-oh, a reception committee. You sure do get around.
'Rickey' Mayberry: It's my wife!
[pushes her out of view]
Irene Malcolm: Oh! The ever-loving split second.
'Rickey' Mayberry: Get back on the plane, will ya?
Irene Malcolm: This is where I didn't come in.
Tom 'Tommy': You're up tp your old tricks, eh? Three calls so far today.
'Rickey' Mayberry: Who were they?
Tom 'Tommy': All the same party. She said to tell you she was stopping at the Hanover Apartments, and to get in touch with her. Some dame named Irene Malcolm.
'Rickey' Mayberry: Tommy, are you really glad to see me?
Tom 'Tommy': Well, sure I am.
'Rickey' Mayberry: Then do me a favor and call her up and try to date her up. I'll give you anything if you take her off my hands.
Tom 'Tommy': You're a cinch. All you have to do is pay the expenses.
'Rickey' Mayberry: I'll do better than that. Someday, if there ever is a dame that bothers you, just call me and I'll take you off the hook.
[enters his boss's office, Irene is sitting across the desk; she heard the entire conversation.]
'Rickey' Mayberry: Checking in chief!
Irene Malcolm: Thanks! For fixing me up on a blind date!
'Chet' Phillips: [Rickey looks for some help] Don't look at me. I'm not gonna dig you out.
'Rickey' Mayberry: Irene, I was just kidding.
Irene Malcolm: [angry] I know just what you mean, darling. You wouldn't for the world!
'Chet' Phillips: Ever since they been married, she squawked at all his foreign assignments. And now that she divorced him...
Irene Malcolm: Divorced him?
'Chet' Phillips: Sure.
[Irene starts laughing uncontrollably.]
'Chet' Phillips: Hey, do you know something I don't? Come on, Irene, out with it.
Irene Malcolm: [still laughing] Oh, Chet, everything's marvelous! You're wonderful. In fact, you're beautiful and I'd marry you in a split second.
'Chet' Phillips: Wait a minute! Don't mean to say he tried that line on you? How that guy gets away with things- I've heard him say that so often, I tried it myself one night.
Irene Malcolm: How'd you do?
'Chet' Phillips: Not bad for me. All I lost was a pivot tooth.
