Blue Hawaii (1961)
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.
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: 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.
Kid on beach: [Seeing Elvis and Blackman 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?
Jack Kelman: I'd rather drive girls than bananas any day!
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.
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: 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.
Chad Gates: You wanna know something - on you, wet is my favourite colour.
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.
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.
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.
Chad Gates: Miss Prentice, as part of the service I'll promise to get a little older every day.
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?
Prison Inmate: You boys sing beautiful, I hope you get life with me!
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.
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.
