Larry Scott Quotes in Baby, Take a Bow (1934)
Larry Scott Quotes:
Welch: You're a nice girl and you're about to make the biggest mistake of your life.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: That's my business.
Larry Scott: Sure it is, and don't let him tell you any different!
Eddie Ellison: Well, if it isn't my old pal Welch, big as life and twice as natural.
Larry Scott: He's still got it in for you! He's been giving the one-two the whole way up here, trying to promote himself.
Welch: I was just trying to give Kay here a little friendly advice. I know a lot more about crooks than she does.
Larry Scott: Why, you!
[he tries to punch Welch, but Larry stops him]
Larry Scott: If you slug him, you'll get in trouble. You're on your way out. Keep going. I'm on my way in. I got nothing to lose.
[he punches Welch]
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Did you tell her about her present?
Eddie Ellison: Who, me? Gee, won't she look cute in that?
Jane Scott: Oh, it's darling.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: It cost an awful lot.
Eddie Ellison: It's for Shirley, isn't it? She only has a birthday once a year.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Every day is her birthday with you.
Eddie Ellison: Well, why shouldn't it be? Say, here's another littl gadget I bought for Shirley.
Larry Scott: What is it?
Eddie Ellison: Take a look.
[He hands Larry a small telescope. When Larry looks into it, it leaves a black ring around his eye]
Larry Scott: I don't see anything.
Eddie Ellison: No, but we do!
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Oh, Eddie, you and your tricks. You're not going to give that to the baby. You're making her as bad as you are.
Larry Scott: Top of the morning to you.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: And the heat of the evening to you.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Sit down and have some coffee.
Larry Scott: Aren't you going to wait for Eddie?
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: I should wait and eat a cold breakfast? Not for any husband. Sometimes I get so mad I could give him poison.
Eddie Ellison: And sometimes I get so mad I could take it. What do you know about that?
Larry Scott: To hear you two in the morning, you'd think you were ready to jump at each other's throats.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: In the morning? What about the rest of the day?
Larry Scott: Well, I just hope Jane and me get along as well as you two.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Eddie, Larry and Jane got engaged last night!
Eddie Ellison: Well, I don't see why a fine girl like Jane would want to marry a mug like you.
Larry Scott: Sometimes I wonder if going straight really pays.
Eddie Ellison: Hey, cut out that kind of talk, will you?
Larry Scott: But what will Jane think?
Eddie Ellison: She's a hundred percent for you. She wouldn't think anything bad about you any more than Kay would me. We won't tell them anything tonight, though.
Larry Scott: Why not?
Eddie Ellison: I don't want anything to spoil Shirley's birthday party!
Eddie Ellison: Well, if it isn't my old pal, Welch. As big as life and twice as natural.
Larry Scott: He's no pal of yours, fella. He's still got it in for you.
Eddie Ellison: What do you mean?
Larry Scott: He's been throwing hooks into you all the way up on the train. Trying to promote himself.
Welch: Yeah. I was just trying to give her a little friendly advice, that's all. I happen to know a lot more about crooks than she does.
Eddie Ellison: Why, you -
[moves as if to hit Welch]
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: [restraining him] Eddie, Eddie!
Larry Scott: If you sock him, you'll get into trouble. You're on the way out. Keep going. I'm on the way in, so I've got nothing to lose.
[punches Welch in the nose]
Eddie Ellison: Thanks, fella. I'll be seeing you when you get out.
Larry Scott: Good luck. I wish I could be your best man.
Larry Scott: Say, how 'bout going to the movies with us tonight?
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Oh, thanks, but we can't leave Shirley.
Larry Scott: They're showing 10,000 years in Sing-Sing at the Cameo.
Eddie Ellison: Gee, what a long stretch!
Jane Scott: They say it's awful funny.
Eddie Ellison: Not for my dough.
Larry Scott: Well, come on, Jane. We'll be late.
Eddie Ellison: Say, Larry, what's your hurry? If you miss three or four years, it don't make any difference.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Have a good time.
Larry Scott: Thanks. Sorry you won't come with us. So long.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison, Eddie Ellison, Jane Scott: Good-bye.
Eddie Ellison: Oh. Hey, Larry.
Larry Scott: Yeah?
Eddie Ellison: We've got to be on the job early in the morning. Stop by for me, and we'll dunk a couple of doughnuts.
Larry Scott: Right.
Eddie Ellison: And say, let me know what the guy did to get 10,000 years.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: What's happened?
Eddie Ellison: Well, the breadwinners have stopped winning.
Larry Scott: Yeah, looks like we're in for a little vacation.
Jane Scott: You mean you were discharged.
Eddie Ellison: Well, not exactly. We were canned.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: But they can't let you off for nothing.
Eddie Ellison: No. I know they can't. But they did. Welch saw to that.
Jane Scott: Who's Welch?
Larry Scott: Well, he's an old friend of ours.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Will you excuse us for a minute? I want to talk to Eddie alone.
[Eddie and Kay go into the next room]
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Now listen, Eddie. When we were married we said we'd go 50-50 on everything, didn't we?
Eddie Ellison: Uh-huh.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Well, that meant joy and trouble, too. You always let me in on the joy, now. Why not the trouble?
Eddie Ellison: There's nothing more to tell.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Eddie, look at me. Did Larry have anything to do with this?
Eddie Ellison: No.
Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Well, then. We haven't a thing to worry about.
Welch: [Welch is searching Eddie's apartment for a stolen pearl necklace] What kind of a sap do you think I am?
Eddie Ellison: I don't know. What kind of a sap are you?
Welch: Now, let's see. If I was in your spot, I wonder where I'd hide that necklace.
Eddie Ellison: Let me see. Maybe you'd swallow it.
Larry Scott: I read in Popular Mechanics where Zulus hide jewels by sewing them under their skin.
Eddie Ellison: That'd be all right if we were Zulus.
