Bake Baker Quotes:

  • Bake Baker: Let's kiss and make up.

    Sherry Martin: No, let's just make up. That'll give you something to work for.

  • Bake Baker: Sherry tells me you're leaving. Well, that's probably the wisest thing to do. Run away! All this stuff about fighting for your man and all that makes things so complicated. Now, if all girls would just give up and run back to Bellport, then we'd definitely see the end of family life, little Junior would remain just an idea, and every man would burn his own toast. I thank you!

  • Bake Baker: Gosh, you're glad to see me.

  • [Bake pays only for himself]

  • Navy Band: [First lines]


    Navy Band: We joined the Navy to see the world, And what did we see? We saw the sea

    Bake Baker: [singing] We saw the Pacific and the Atlantic, But the Atlantic isn't romantic, And the Pacific isn't what it's cracked up to be...

  • Bake Baker: [singing] We joined the Navy to see the girls, And what did we see? We saw the sea, Instead of a girl or two in a taxi, We were compelled to look at the Black Sea, Seeing the Black Sea isn't what it's cracked up to be...

  • Bilge Smith: Boy, I hope I pick something good this time. I'm always getting school teachers.

    Bake Baker: Why not? You've got a lot to learn yet.

  • Bake Baker: Maybe you were right. If you'd a married me, you wouldn't be working in a Chop Suey joint like this.

  • Bake Baker: Gosh, Sherry, how'd you ever get in a place like this?

    Bake Baker: Well, a fan doesn't cost much.

  • Bake Baker: All right. Let's see if you can remember what I told you. Now, eh, you fellas, get over there. You're the dames. Well you asked me to teach you how to dance didn't ya? All right, then you're dames. And you fellas are their partners. All right, music. Now, get together. Come on, get together. Get together. 1-2-3. 1-2-3. 1-2-3. 1-2-3. 1-2-3. 1-2-3. Don't be bashful. Grab 'em tight.
