Blue Hawaii (1961)
Maile Duval: My French blood tells me to argue with you and my Hawain blood tells me not to mind - they're battling it out in front of me.
Chad Gates: I've never seen such a beautiful battleground.
Chad Gates: I like my job, mum. It's fun, it's interesting and I meet a lot of nice people.
Sarah Lee Gates: Nonsense. Tourists aren't people. They're... They're tourists.
Jack Kelman: I'd rather drive girls than bananas any day!
Sarah Lee Gates: Now that Chadwick's home, I'm sure he's got all that foolishness out of his system, after the war.
Fred Gates: Sarah Lee, how many times do I have to tell you, he was not in a war.
Sarah Lee Gates: I know you're right, Daddy, but if I don't tell myself there was a war, I have a most depressive feeling Chadwick's just wasted two years.
Chad Gates: You sure kept them both in good shape.
Maile Duval: Both?
Chad Gates: Hmm hmm. Your body and my car.
Chad Gates: [singing] Baby I was almost always true to you, I was almost true to you.
Chad Gates: You wanna know something - on you, wet is my favourite colour.
Kid on beach: [Seeing Chad and Maile kissing on beach] Can I play?
Chad Gates: I think you're a little young for this game.
Kid on beach: If I get a girl can I play with you?
Maile Duval: [When Chad gives her racy bikini] I thank you for thinking of me.
Chad Gates: Oh I wasn't thinking of you, I was thinking of me.
Sarah Lee Gates: And he didn't even give his momma any goodnight sugar.
Chad Gates: It's a music box, it plays European love songs, but they're the same in any language.
Mr. Chapman: [On hula round his neck] These are not only decorative but they also keep my neck warm.
Abigail Prentice: Mr Gates, do you think you can satisfy a school teacher and 4 teenage girls?
Chad Gates: Oh, I'll sure try, ma'am. I-I'll do all I can.
Ellie Corbett: They taught us that corny hula stuff in dance school when I was 3.
Selena Emerson: You were never 3.
Ito O'Hara: Even though there's no surf, he's right back in the swim.
Maile Duval: Well he's about to be beached!
Chad Gates: Are you always so bored or is it me?
Ellie Corbett: Life is a bore I always say.
Chad Gates: Oh already?
Ellie Corbett: I've had 17 years of it.
Chad Gates: That's the fun part. Wait till the next seventeen.
Ellie Corbett: Don't start that child psychology bit, I'm no child.
Chad Gates: I'm no psychologist.
Sarah Lee Gates: You're up early this morning son.
Chad Gates: I have to, I've got a job.
Sarah Lee Gates: A job? Working?
Sarah Lee Gates: My baby's home from the big house
Fred Gates: Oh, Sarah Lee, will you forget those old movies?
Sarah Lee Gates: Chadwick think of who you are. Remember you come from a fine family.
Chad Gates: You'll do enough remembering for both of us, ma.
Sarah Lee Gates: Oh Daddy, what did we do wrong?
Fred Gates: Offhand I'd say we got married.
Ellie Corbett: You ever see anything like this in a cradle?
Maile Duval: You can't spend the rest of your life on a surf board.
Chad Gates: Oh yes, I can. The G.I. bill of rights says I get my old job back. This is my old job.
Chad Gates: I think you're a mixed-up kid that's too big for her breeches.
Ellie Corbett: I don't wear breeches.
Chad Gates: You're getting out of here right now, Miss No-Breeches Bardot!
Ellie Corbett: Chad, do you think I'm pretty?
Chad Gates: I think you're pretty forward and pretty stupid.
Ellie Corbett: Wouldn't you rather hold me than Abigail?
Chad Gates: I'd like to hold you over a barbecue pit!
Chad Gates: You know what you need? A good old-fashioned spanking.
Ellie Corbett: M-Maybe I do. Nobody ever cared enough about me. Even for that.
Chad Gates: Alright, Eleanor. I better prove that somebody does care.
[He pulls her over his lap]
Ellie Corbett: You wouldn't dare.
Chad Gates: Oh wouldn't I dare? Wouldn't I?
[He spanks her, and Ellie begins to cry out]
Chad Gates: I got a feeling that this is gonna make both of us an awful lot better.
Carl Tanami: This is crazy seaweed.
Chad Gates: That's no seaweed, that's the top of Maile's bathing suit.
Sarah Lee Gates: Chadwick's a growing boy, I don't think it's appropriate of you to give him intoxicating libations.
Chad Gates: Miss Prentice, as part of the service I'll promise to get a little older every day.
Prison Inmate: Beautiful! You boys sing beautiful, I hope you get life with me!
Chad Gates: Back to your room!
Ellie Corbett: I couldn't sleep there.
Chad Gates: Well you sure can't sleep here. Perhaps you should take a bath - on second thoughts make that a cold shower!
Ellie Corbett: Well at least we have 5 minutes.
Chad Gates: I have 5 minutes Miss over-sexed and under-aged.
Abigail Prentice: Moonlight in Hawaii can be rather intoxicating.
Chad Gates: I know, that's why I never touch the stuff.
Ellie Corbett: Nobody cares about me, whether I live or die.
Chad Gates: Nobody seems to care because you don't seem to care about yourself. You have to care first, if you like yourself others will like you too.
Ellie Corbett: There's nothing to like.
Chad Gates: There's a lot to like if you wouldn't try to be something you're not. It don't work. I know. You're gonna find out now and save yourself a lot of grieve.
Chad Gates: Miss Prentice I'm not the guy you think I am, I snore and everything.
Sarah Lee Gates: [after seeing Chad and Maile dancing to "Rock a Hula Rock"] Daddy, I'm gonna to have a headache. A dreadful headache!
Ito O'Hara: Hey, Chad, why don't you go get some firewood for dinner?
Chad Gates: Firewood? Man you'll eat anything!
Sarah Lee Gates: I woke up when I heard our dog barking, and I thought Chadwick was coming in then. But then I realized that it couldn't be, 'cause we don't have a dog.
Maile Duval: What were you doing all that time while I was missing you?
Chad Gates: Uhm, being true to you.
Maile Duval: Always?
Chad Gates: Almost always.
Chad Gates: Oh, I get along very well with teenagers. I used to be one myself.
Abigail Prentice: And not too long ago.
Sarah Lee Gates: What was that?
Fred Gates: Something we may have to get used to, Sarah Lee. It's called the sound of youth.
Chad Gates: Shall we start our tour with the pineapple fields?
Ellie Corbett: I hate pineapples.
Chad Gates: Well, then let's go there first and get it over with.
Fred Gates: Who is this character anyway?
Chad Gates: This is my boss, dad.
Mr. Chapman: Your ex- you're fired young man.
Maile Duval: Mr. Chapman, he was only protecting your clients. You can't fire him.
Mr. Chapman: Oh yes I can, I'll do it again,too. Just watch me.
[turns to Chad and points a finger at him]
Mr. Chapman: You're fired. You see?
Maile Duval: Men, you can have them.
Chad Gates: I don't want em.
Maile Duval: Get out!
[Maile slams the door]
Chad Gates: I want you!
Maile Duval: Gates and Duval travel service. Has a nice ring to it.
Chad Gates: It's too long. Simple. Gates of Hawaii.
Maile Duval: Don't I get any billing?
Chad Gates: Sure. Gates is plural. In case you didn't recognize it, that's a proposal. That has a better ring.
Maile Duval: You're sure?
Chad Gates: Well, I suppose I could be romantic about it but you'll say yes anyway.
Chad Gates: I could try to explain what happened, Maile but nobody would believe me. Not even me. Will you just believe this- I love you and there's nothing between Miss Prentice and me.
Maile Duval: Well of course you deny it. But I know that look and she's got it.
Chad Gates: That look is for Jack. He's got it, too.
Maile Duval: Mr. Kellman and Miss Prentice?
[Chad nods, smiling]
Maile Duval: Oh, you can do better than that. You must think I'm a fool.
Sarah Lee Gates: Oh, it's such a shame Captain Polk was a damn yankee.
Mr. Chapman: She's a lovely woman, that Miss Prentice. They make a handsome couple, young Gates and Miss Prentice.
Maile Duval: They do?
Mr. Chapman: Yeah. Miss Prentice is quite taken with the boy, too. She's even extended her tour.
Maile Duval: Now that's hanky-panky. From where I stand.
Chad Gates: Mom, I'm sorry, honestly. But it wasn't my fault.
Sarah Lee Gates: Oh, I know that, dear. It's your friends. Mostly that Duval girl. She's the one to blame.
Chad Gates: Maile had nothing to do with it.
Sarah Lee Gates: Well she was there, wasn't she? And you got that job working in her tourist place. Well, who else can we blame? She's pulling you down to her level.
Ping Pong: [after Sarah Lee Gates fainted when her husband told her that Chad is going to get married over the phone] Everything okay, Mr. Gates. Missie Gates just taking nap, s'il vous plaît.
Tucker Garvey: [stands up and glares at Chad after Chad sings, yells] Hey you, cork up the wailing!
[pauses, then yells louder]
Tucker Garvey: I SAID CORK IT UP!
Prison Inmate: [grabs Tucker and punches him in the face, knocking Tucker out]
[turns to Chad and the other Beach Boys, tears in his eyes as he puts his harmonica away]
Prison Inmate: Beautiful! You boys sing beautiful, I hope we get life together!
[is hopeful because of how lonely he was before Chad and The Beach Boys were arrested]
Chad Gates: [glances up at the inmate with a raised eyebrow, surprised and definitely does not want to be in jail for life]
