Flying Down to Rio (1933)
Fred Ayres: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. This is really good news. Rog has outdone himself.
Honey Hale: I'll bet he's broken both legs running after two women at the same time.
Fred Ayres: Nothing of the kind. He's landed us a job in Rio. Rio de Janeiro. The Hotel Atlantico. We'll be flying down any morning now.
Honey Hale: And swimming back in the afternoon. I'm taking my water-wings.
Honey Hale: It's like looking for a noodle in a haystack. Oh, cookies!
Honey Hale: The trick is to keep your mind a blank.
Fred Ayres: With *that* music?
Honey Hale: Oh, Freddy, is my mind read!
Honey Hale: [singing] In me you see a sinner, And dancing is my crime, It seems a sin I've gotta give in, To syncopated time, It makes me lose my dignity, It makes me lose my poise, And some folks call it music, But my folks call it noise, I like music, old or new, But music makes me do the things I never should do, I like music, sweet or blue...
Honey Hale: [watching a Carioca dance] What's this business about the foreheads?
Fred Ayres: Mental telepathy.
Honey Hale: I can tell what they're thinking about from here.
Fred Ayres: I'd like to try this thing, just once. Come on, Honey.
Honey Hale: We'll show 'em a thing or three!
The Colored Singer: [singing] Say, have you seen the Carioca? It's not a foxtrot or a polka, It has a little bit of new rhythm, A blue rhtthm that sights, It has a meter that is tricky, A bit of wicked wacky-wicky, But when you dance it with a new love, There's a true love in her eyes, You dream of a new Carioca...
Fred Ayres: Mmm. It's kinda hot. Let's try a little of that, babe.
Honey Hale: Oh, Freddy, how do you ask for little tarts in Portuguese?
Fred Ayres: Don't heckle me. Try the Culbertson System.
Fred Ayres: [singing] Flying down to Rio, come with me! Where the lovely Brazilian ladies will catch your eye, By the light of the million stars in the evening sky, My Rio, Rio by the Sea-o, Flying down to Rio where there's rhythm and rhyme...
Fred Ayres: Well, I usually fly with you, don't I? Or, am I just a fly in the carburetor?
Roger Bond: Oh, well, I tell you, Freddy, old man, you see, it's this way: I met a friend, a very old friend who asked me as a very special favor, you know how it is, so, you'll have to fly down with the boys. You don't mind, do ya? See that they all have a dill pickle with their box lunch.
Hammerstein - the Hotel Manager: I will dismiss, discharge, and disqualify any employee who gets familiar with a guest.
Honey Hale: But, what happens if the guests get familiar with us!
[lifts her dress above her knee]
Honey Hale: [singing] The things I do are never forgiven, For just when I'm livin' 'em down, I hear music, then I'm through, For music makes me do the things I never should do...
Belinha De Rezende: Whenever a Brazilian girl starts something, she must finish it.
Bellhop: Tell the ol' sea lion the baby's hoofin' with a piccolo player.
Fred Ayres: Pull in your apples boys, here comes William Tell.
Yankee Clipper Banjo Player: Well, Roger's done it again.
Eddie - Yankee Clipper: Yeah and just as I was gettin' caught up in my alimony too.
Honey Hale: That Sir Galahad has gotten us kicked out of every job from Maine to Miami! I wonder where we go from here?
Fred Ayres: Boys! Boys! Boys and Girls. And you too, Honey.
Belinha De Rezende: It just so happens that I have a friend who's flying his own plane down south.
Roger Bond: [excitedly] How far is he going?
Belinha De Rezende: Just as far as you want him to.
Belinha De Rezende: [kiss] Oh, I didn't mean this. I don't know how it happened.
Roger Bond: What difference does it make? It happened. Isn't that enough?
Roger Bond: Oh, this isn't just another girl, Julio, this is the real thing! Old man Cupid didn't fire an arrow this time. No sir. He sunk a harpoon!
Julio Rubeiro: So, this time it's a Brazilian girl.
Roger Bond: And what a Brazilian girl. I'm goofy about her! I am crazy for her. As a matter of fact, I like her.
Julio Rubeiro: You'll be seeing her in Rio, of course?
Roger Bond: That's the catch. She wouldn't tell me her name or address.
Julio Rubeiro: Oh, then it's all on your side.
Roger Bond: In the pig's monocle, she's dizzy about me!
Julio Rubeiro: With us, an engagement is very serious.
Roger Bond: Serious? Don't you think it's serious when every time I think of her I want to bite myself! Boy, am I suffering.
Hotel Atlântico Manager: I also have the honor to visit your country once. I will play vaudeville. I played Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Newport News, and Schene-ne Schenecteddy.
Honey Hale: Oh, Schenecteddy?
Hotel Atlântico Manager: Yes.
Honey Hale: Did you ever play Syracu-see?
Hotel Atlântico Manager: Syracu-see, sure! I play four, five times a day!
Fred Ayres: Nice work if you can get it.
Roger Bond: Will you do it?
Plane Dancer #1: I'll do it! It sounds like a new thrill. Come on, girls!
Roger Bond: That's the stuff!
Plane Dancer #2: Something tells me this is the wrong thing to do.
Plane Dancer #3: I'll try anything once.
Belinha De Rezende: All we want in the world is beautiful, crazy happiness.
Honey Hale: Good morning, Popeye.
Hammerstein - the Hotel Manager: How dare you speak when I've not asked you a question. Now then, I've had several complaints about all of you.
Honey Hale: That's funny. No one has complained to me.
Hammerstein - the Hotel Manager: I have been imported from Switzerland by the management of this Hotel - to enforce discipline. And I will!
Fred Ayres: Hold your hats boys, here we go again, the latin type.
Maid: Oh, madame.
Dona Elena De Rezende: Yes?
Maid: Mademoiselle is going in a big way for a gigolo.
Dona Elena De Rezende: Belinha? A gigolo? Oh!
Roger Bond: Send this wire, saying we're coming and I'll see you in Rio. Flying down to Rio? Boy, what a title for a new song!
Belinha De Rezende: I won't permit you!
Roger Bond: Oh, we'll see about that!
Belinha De Rezende: You'll do just as I say!
Roger Bond: Oh, will I?
Belinha De Rezende: You will!
Roger Bond: I will not. And your family, your fiancé, the army, the navy, and all of South America can't stop me. And if you're silly enough to think that -
[Belinha slaps Roger. Roger takes Belinha over his knee and spanks her]
Belinha De Rezende: Oww!
