Heaven Can Wait (1943)
Louis Calhern: Randolph Van Cleve
Albert Van Cleve : I assume you're referring to my future father-in-law, who happens to be one of the great meat packers of our time.
Bertha Van Cleve : Yes, Father Cleve, don't you realize that every piece of beef we eat comes from one of Mr. Strable's many, many plants.
Hugo Van Cleve : Does that include the steak I fought ten rounds with last night?
Albert Van Cleve : Grandfather, you don't seem to have any idea of the importance of Mr. Strable. He created the most famous character in American advertising - Mable the Cow.
Randolph Van Cleve : You've seen her, Father, on billboards.
Bertha Van Cleve : That big happy cow smiling at you over the fence and saying in big letters, um... uh... How does it go, uh...?
Albert Van Cleve : "To the world my name is Mabel, which you'll find on every label; I am packed by E. F. Strable for the pleasure of your table."
Hugo Van Cleve : No cow in its right mind could have said anything like that. Sounds more like Mr. Strable.
Albert Van Cleve : Grandfather, please, I beg of you. The family understands your humor, but it's a typical kind of New York humor.
Hugo Van Cleve : In other words it's not for yokels, hm?
Randolph Van Cleve : [coming out of his son's room] Well, this time I was firm!
Bertha Van Cleve : Good, Randolph. What happened?
Randolph Van Cleve : He asked for a hundred dollars, but I told HIM! I told him I'd let him have only fifty.
Bertha Van Cleve : Randolph!
Randolph Van Cleve : And not right away!
Bertha Van Cleve : For the first time in twenty-seven years of marriage I feel like criticizing you.
Randolph Van Cleve : Believe me, Bertha, I never knew what a musical comedy girl looked like.
Bertha Van Cleve : Well, what can he possibly derive from their company?
Randolph Van Cleve : To me they were creatures from another planet.
Bertha Van Cleve : Where does he get it from? Nobody in our family was musical.
Randolph Van Cleve : To this day I wouldn't know how to find the stage entrance to a theatre.
Hugo Van Cleve : It's always around in the back, up an alleyway. There's a sign over the door: 'Stage Entrance.' You can't miss it.
