Romance on the High Seas (1948)
Peter Virgil: There's something I just gotta do, I cant help myself.
Georgia Garrett: Well if you cant help yourself, you can't help yourself.
Peter Virgil: I gotta find the cable-gram.
Dudley: Oh! How do you do, Miss Garrett?
Georgia Garrett: Greetings, chum!
Dudley: My, we haven't seen you, let's see now, since you didn't go to Switzerland.
Georgia Garrett: Yeah, I got a big kick out of planning that trip. What looks good this time of year?
Dudley: How about the Canadian Rockies?
Georgia Garrett: Canadian Rockies? Don't you remember? I already haven't been there!
Rio hotel clerk: What if there IS blood shed in 314? We're going to do the whole third floor over anyhow.
Georgia Garrett: I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love with you.
Georgia Garrett: Its you or no one for me. Baby you're the one for me.
Michael Kent: Are you a good detective?
Peter Virgil: Naturally, why?
Michael Kent: Where did you do your traning?
Peter Virgil: In the army. Intelligence G2.
Michael Kent: Well how are you at the job?
Peter Virgil: We won the war didn't we?
Michael Kent: My wife is leaving day after tomorrow on a South American cruise and, well, she insists on going without me.
Peter Virgil: Hm. And to a man of your suspicious nature that means only one thing: Another man on the boat.
Michael Kent: Well, you see, I don't know, but that's what I want you to find out.
Peter Virgil: Well, you've come to the right man. I have handled so many of these cases.
Peter Virgil: Excuse me.
[picks up phone]
Peter Virgil: Hello?...Oh yes, how are you?...Well, certainly I shadowed your wife. I hate to tell you this, but you were right, she's been two-timing you.
[we hear a thud on the other end of the line]
Peter Virgil: Hello? Hello?
[aside to Mr. Kent]
Peter Virgil: He fainted.
[hangs up phone]
Peter Virgil: Sometimes there's a shot. Now where were we?
Michael Kent: Well, Mr. Virgil, I want you to get on the same boat with my wife and shadow her.
Peter Virgil: Hey now, wait a minute! That means I'll have to leave all of my business!
Michael Kent: I'll make it up to you.
Peter Virgil: Well, I can tell you right now without batting an eyelash it'll cost you $1000 a week.
Michael Kent: Well, that's a little steep, isn't it, old boy?
Peter Virgil: Yes, yes it is, but, uh, I'll probably get seasick.
Michael Kent: Well, all right, all right, I'll book your passage.
Peter Virgil: Hm. Now, uh, move your chair a little closer, will you? There's a little confidential information I must have.
Peter Virgil: Excuse me.
[picks up phone]
Peter Virgil: Hello?
[we hear a gunshot on the other end of the line]
Peter Virgil: Well, whaddya know? He didn't even wait for me to tell him!
Georgia Garrett: Oscar! Aren't you going to kiss me?
Oscar Farrar: I don't know how. Will you show me?
[she kisses his cheek]
Oscar Farrar: You don't know how either!
Ship's doctor: Let me see your tongue.
[he bends over; we hear hs spine crack and he grabs his back]
Ship's doctor: Ow!
Georgia Garrett: What's the matter?
Ship's doctor: Well, I get dizzy when I bend. I must be coming down with something.
Georgia Garrett: Awww.
Ship's doctor: Thank you very much, yes. May I feel your pulse?
[she offers her wrist; he offers his to her]
Ship's doctor: You might as well feel mine, if you'd be so kind. Thank you.
Ship's doctor: Yes, your pulse is normal.
Georgia Garrett: Yours is fast!
Ship's doctor: I was sure of it!
Oscar Farrar: Incidentally, I picked up your last two paychecks. It was barely enough to pay for my plane ticket down here. Didn't even leave me enough to buy you a present! I feel like a cad.
Georgia Garrett: You crook. You can go to jail for that.
Oscar Farrar: Marry me and you won't have to testify against me.
Oscar Farrar: I guess I'll just have to bury myself in my work.
Georgia Garrett: Is that your Brooklyn Rhapsody?
Oscar Farrar: Who said anything about Brooklyn? It's now called the Caribbean Rhapsody. I'm very adaptable.
Georgia Garrett: Have you finished it yet?
Oscar Farrar: I don't want to finish it. People will like it. They'll make a big fuss over me, I'll have no time for myself, I'll be the toast of the town, and then what happens to that sweet boy you and I both love?
Georgia Garrett: Aren't you being modest? I have confidence in you, Oscar.
Oscar Farrar: Everybody has confidence in me. That's my trouble. In high school I was voted the boy most likely to succeed. In college they said I had a brilliant future.
Oscar Farrar: I wonder whatever became of me.
