It Should Happen to You (1954)
Gladys Glover: I haven't changed. I'm the same as I was before - only in a different way.
Bert Piazza: [discussing an ad campaign] But what's the angle?
Evan Adams III: The 'average American girl!'
Robert Grau: A lot of penetration there.
[after meeting Gladys in central Park]
Pete Sheppard: Good luck to you, Gladys. I sure hope you make a name for yourself, if that's what you want. If that's what you really want, you'll get it.
Gladys Glover: How?
Pete Sheppard: I don't know. Just a theory of mine: that not only 'where there's a will, there's a way'... but, 'where's there's a way, there's a will'. See?
Gladys Glover: Well... I think... if they're big enough, they're old enough.
Sour Man in Central Park: Look, girlie. I don't mind a pick up once in a while, only I like to do the pickin' see?
Gladys Glover: Lister, mister. How would you like to watch some of your language?
Sour Man in Central Park: Who are you?
Gladys Glover: Nobody, that's who.
Gladys Glover: Who, me?
Sour Man in Central Park: Sure you, not who.
[to the others in the park listening]
Sour Man in Central Park: Comes in walkin' in barefooted. Sits down on the top of me...
Gladys Glover: [Incredulous] Top of?
Sour Man in Central Park: Starts throwing around peanuts around. Gets all them dusty birds over. Top it off, she tries to pick me up... if I ain't got enough troubles now.
Gladys Glover: Listen, mister, how would you like a good smack in your face?
Sour Man in Central Park: Why don't you try it?
Gladys Glover: Because it's too hot's why!
Sour Man in Central Park: What a putz!
Gladys Glover: [to Pete Sheppard] How do you like that?
Pete Sheppard: [Who has been filming the encounter] Not bad. A real interesting chat.
Pete Sheppard: Say, if you care to give me your address, I could drop you a postcard and fix it up for you to see this picture when it gets done.
Gladys Glover: I'd give my right arm to see myself in the movies.
Pete Sheppard: You don't have to give me your right arm. Just give me your right address.
Gladys Glover: 262 West 61st Street, Room 9.
Pete Sheppard: Well, so long Gladys.
Gladys Glover: [Extends her hand but instead of him shaking it, Pete kisses it impulsively. She looks taken aback]
Pete Sheppard: I saw a fella do that in a French movie last week. I've been meaning to try it ever since.
Gladys Glover: [Dancing with Evan and looking over his shoulder] Look!
Evan Adams III: What?
Gladys Glover: Walter Winchell!
Evan Adams III: [Nonchalantly] Oh, yes.
Gladys Glover: That's the seventh big name I've seen tonight. What a night!
Robert Grau: [Thinking about an ad for their product] How's this? "Stars need it. Celebrities too. But, more important, it's the favorite of average American girls such as Miss Gladys Glover!"
Bert Piazza: I don't think she's so average.
Evan Adams III: Why not?
Bert Piazza: Because she's unusual.
Evan Adams III: That's what you men don't understand. That the average American girl IS unusual.
Bert Piazza: How's that again?
Evan Adams III: Exactly.
Robert Grau: He's got something there BP.
Evan Adams III: [Putting the moves on Gladys] There you are.
Gladys Glover: Yes.
Evan Adams III: Feeling better?
Gladys Glover: Much.
Evan Adams III: There's nothing like champagne.
Gladys Glover: Yes, there is.
Evan Adams III: What?
Gladys Glover: More champagne.
Gladys Glover: The way it looks to me, Mr. Adams... there are two kinds of people. The ones who would do anything to make a name for themselves and the ones who would do almost anything.
Evan Adams III: To which are you?
Gladys Glover: Ah, I'll let you know.
Bert Piazza: So the point we are trying to make is just this. That there is no reason for you to be unreasonable.
Gladys Glover: I don't think I'm unreasonable.
Bert Piazza: You don't?
Gladys Glover: No. I think I'm reasonable. You are the ones who are "un".
Pete Sheppard: [Walking around inspecting Evan's foreign vehicle] Imported.
Evan Adams III: [In the driver's seat] That's right.
Pete Sheppard: Hm. Great little car.
Evan Adams III: I like it.
Pete Sheppard: I like it too.
Evan Adams III: [to Evan's irritation, Pete continues to inspect the car] Need something?
Pete Sheppard: What's car like this worth?
Evan Adams III: About $5,000. Why? You want to buy it?
Pete Sheppard: Yes, I do. The only thing I don't happen to have $5,000 on me just njow. And I don't get paid 'til Friday.
Evan Adams III: That's too bad.
Pete Sheppard: [Digging in his pocket] You wouldn't take eleven dollars and what... thirty cents. I suppose that'd do it, eh?
Evan Adams III: No.
Pete Sheppard: I didn't think it would.
