Young Man with a Horn (1950)
Rick Martin: I don't understand a word you're saying, but I love the sound of your voice.
Attendant: I'm afraid it's pneumonia. Think you oughtta get him to a hospital.
Willie 'Smoke' Willoughby: Well, why didn't you send him to a hospital?
Attendant: We didn't have any authorization.
Willie 'Smoke' Willoughby: You got it now.
[takes pen and paper out; writes; hands paper to attendant]
Willie 'Smoke' Willoughby: Get an ambulance; I'm taking him out of here. And call these numbers - tell 'em to get down here right away.
Attendant: [looking at paper] Mrs Martin - is that his wife?
Attendant: And the other one?
Willie 'Smoke' Willoughby: She's *not* his wife.
Rick Martin: I'm not going to be tied down to anybody or anything. From now on, I'm playing it my way.
Rick Martin: [to Amy] That trumpet's part of me. It's the best part. You almost made me forget that.
Rick Martin: [to Amy] What a dope I was. I thought you were class, like a real high note you only hit once in a lifetime.
Rick Martin: [to Amy] You're like those carnival joints I used to work in. Big flash on the outside, but on the inside nothing but filth.
