Slightly Dangerous (1943)
Bob Stuart: Well, uh, you see, she had amnesia when I met her. What's more, it recurred, you know, kept happening on and off. Why once I came home late at night. I got into bed, kissed her and she gave me a friendly smile and then said, "Who are you?" It was the friendly smile that burned me up.
Mitzi: Congratulations, honey. What a break, hunh? Two and a half fish out of the blue.
Bob Stuart: I couldn't hate you, darling. Unless you turned out to be a... female impersonator. And I'll bet you my bottom dollar you're not.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: We have a special on jumbo banana splits today. They're *delicious*!
Banana Split Customer: Ohh, I'm on a diet!
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Oh, that's wrong, ma'am. You should *never* diet.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: No. You should force yourself to eat. More and more, all the time. Then you'll get to hate eating. And then you'll get thin without any trouble at all!
Banana Split Customer: Why, I never thought of it that way!
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Good! One "jumbo" coming up!
Bob Stuart: You're not a basket weaver, you're a soda squirt!
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Don't you call me a "squirt"!
Doorman: [Not recognizing Peggy as she comes out of the shop with a complete makeover] Your car, mademoiselle?
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: "Miss mademoiselle" to you.
Doorman: [Looks confused] Oh...
Baldwin: Shall I phone the police?
Durstin: No! You imbecile! Do you think I want every other paper in town building up her case, and spreading the story that I am an assassin?
Snodgrass: If you can bring back the dead, Stuart, you can certainly get back your job.
Bob Stuart: I'll hold you to that, Mr. Snodgrass.
Cornelius Burden: Don't try appealing to my mercy - I've got none!
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: If I turn out to be your daughter, I'm going to run away from home!
Cornelius Burden: [sourly] And I'll help you!
Baba: Don't you swear at me, Master Cornelius! Or you'll spend the evening in your room.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Don't worry, Baba. I promise you faithfully, I won't get married - till I find someone as nice as father.
Baba: Well, if you do, I hope you find someone with more sense.
Cornelius Burden: Why, do you think I'm insane? Let you go away alone with a man who you feel is not your husband?
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: But don't you see? If I am alone with him, why, I can find out everything. I can trap him. Because he won't be suspecting anything. But it would be different if you were along, because he'd be on his guard.
Cornelius Burden: But Carol, if I were to let you go, and something happened to you, why, why... I'd kill myself.
Claudius Swade - Owner of Motel: Are we having trouble with our car, folks?
Bob Stuart: Yes... Is there any place around here I can get this thing fixed?
Claudius Swade - Owner of Motel: Well, there's an all-night garage...
Bob Stuart: [with a hopeful expression] There is?
Claudius Swade - Owner of Motel: Yep. But it closed at 12:00.
Claudius Swade - Owner of Motel: Wait! Come back! You can have the room tonight.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Oh, that's wonderful!
Bob Stuart: But... we haven't any money!
Claudius Swade - Owner of Motel: Aw, forget it! I'll charge a little to building maintenance. A little to overhead, the rest to Mr. Popper, in bungalow 5.
Bob Stuart: Just one more thing: you're Carole Burden, all right. You're not Peggy Evans.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: How do you know?
Bob Stuart: Because Peggy Evans was a whining little coward afraid to face life. She was hysterical and selfish. You are the finest, the bravest girl there ever was. You were willing to accept me - a complete stranger - as your husband. You left your home, and your father, to come with me because you thought it was right. You're the most wonderful girl I ever knew.
Bob Stuart: That's all.
[turns and leaves]
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Oh, Johnny...
Bob Stuart: The name is "Bob," Carol.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: The name is "Peggy," Johnny.
Bob Stuart: Maybe we'd better just call each other Mister and Missus.
Peggy Evans aka Carol Burden: Maybe talking at all is... just a waste of time.
[they commence to kiss]
