Alberta Marlow: We were discussing Philippine economics when we were so rudely interrupted.

Dr. Lorenz: My own field! Miss Marlowe was kind enough to listen to me.

Rick Leland: They're going to be free in 1946, aren't they?

Dr. Lorenz: They are - provided America does not insist on fighting a war with Japan. It's my opinion that that contingency is going to keep the Philippines from being free.

Alberta Marlow: Won't Japan gobble them up?

Rick Leland: No offense, but Japan or Canada or anybody else can have the Philippines as far as I'm concerned. It's hot in Manila!

Dr. Lorenz: Might even be hotter before long.

Alberta Marlow: Hot enough to go around in shorts?

Rick Leland: Ah, there's a Canadian for you! Let them take their clothes off, and they're happy.

Alberta Marlow: [Talking about Japanese people in general] You are always so calm. You never show anything.

Capt. Higoto: We are told not to. It is our way of rife. We must not show too much sad-i-ness or too much joy. If you praise what we have, we say it is nus-sing. If you admire our sons, we must say thay are unworthy.

Alberta Marlow: [after they kiss] What's the matter?

Rick Leland: Look, I didn't mean that.

Alberta Marlow: Mr. Leland, I believe that a man should tell the woman he's going to marry everything.

Rick Leland: Oh, in that case, I'll come clean.

Alberta Marlow: What?

Rick Leland: I look old, but that's because I've worried a lot. Actually, I haven't yet reached the age of legal consent, and if you don't get out of here, I'm gonna yell for help.

Alberta Marlow: All right, you can get yourself another heiress.

[Both walk towards the light]

Rick Leland: On a Jap freighter, too. You better pinch me.

Rick Leland: I don't know, I never thought much about them.

Dr. Lorenz: A wonderful little people. Wonderful. Greatly misunderstood, believe me. To know them, that is to really know them, is to feel the deepest affection for them.

Rick Leland: At last, we're alone. Now, listen, bright eyes.

Rick Leland: Where? What do you mean?

Alberta Marlow: T. Oki. It's not the same Oki that came down from Halifax with us. That's another man.

Rick Leland: Ah, the heat's kidding you angel. They all look alike.

Dr. Lorenz: One night, you told me about your troubles in the Army. I'd like to hear more about that.

Rick Leland: I got in a jam with a dame.

Dr. Lorenz: Yes?

Rick Leland: I needed some dough. I had access to the regimental funds so I borrowed it, intending to put it back, of course.

Dr. Lorenz: Of course.

Rick Leland: They found out first. The brass hats could have given me a chance if they wanted to, but they didn't. They tied me up with pink ribbons and threw me to the wolves. Write your own finish.
