1953: How To Marry A Millionaire   Leave a comment

Schatze Page (Lauren Bacall): I can’t shack up with a dame I’ve never met before and she’s crazy too!

Pola Debevoise (Marilyn Monroe): You don’t have to. She’ll come up and you’ll see if you like her. If you don’t…

Schatze Page: Is she any help to this?

Pola Debevoise: Let’s see

[over the phone to Loco]

Pola Debevoise: Hey Loc, how much money you got?

Loco Dempsey (Betty Grable): [on the phone] I got a quarter.

Pola Debevoise: Great. Pick up lunch on your way over.

Loco Dempsey: Ok, how many.

Pola Debevoise: Three

Loco Dempsey: Ok, I’ll be there in 15 minutes.

[hangs up]

Schatze Page: Well that’s a big contribution to a million dollar proposition. One whole quarter!

Pola Debevoise: Maybe, but she’s awfully clever with a quarter.
