Ellen Shanley: [Talking on the phone] But, I just have to talk to the District Attorney about a young man he arrested. He's not really out of his mind. I upset him because he's not used to girls.

Buster "Buzzy" Bellew: Take it easy, lad. A fellow has to pay his cab fare. What do I owe you, Max?

Max - Taxi Driver: 60 cents, Buzzy.

Buster "Buzzy" Bellew: I'll toss you for it, double or nothing. Give me a coin. Come on, Max. Come on. That a boy. What do you cry?

Max - Taxi Driver: Tails!

Buster "Buzzy" Bellew: To bad, Max, you lose. Ha-ha-ha!

[Starts to walk away]

Max - Taxi Driver: Hey Buzzy, my quarter! My quarter!

Ellen Shanley: You know, Mr. Dingle, you have the most extraordinary mind I've ever heard of.

Edwin Dingle: Oh, I wouldn't say that.

Ellen Shanley: You're very modest, aren't you?

Edwin Dingle: Yes, I guess, I am.

Ellen Shanley: That's odd. If I had a mind like yours; in fact, if I had any mind at all; I'd be a brazen hussy! Ha-ha-ha.

Edwin Dingle: Oh! Ha-ha-ha

Ellen Shanley: There! I bet that's the first time you've laughed since you've read Professor Zimmel's inaccuracies of the Phoenician wars. Ha-ha-ha

Edwin Dingle: Ha-ha-ha. Yes, I guess it is, at that. You know, I really enjoy being here.

Ellen Shanley: I'm glad. I like having you.

Policeman in Park: I'll show you an experiment, Einstein!

District Attorney: Your story is satisfactory except for a few minor details.

Edwin Dingle: Well, it was quite dark and I may have slipped up on one or two points.

District Attorney: Yes, in the first place, the tall, thin man with the red beard was a short, fat, fan dancer named Chu-Chu LaVerne!
