Rose Smith Quotes:

  • Esther Smith: I'm going to let John Truett kiss me tonight.

    Rose Smith: Esther Smith.

    Esther Smith: Well, if we're going to get married, I may as well start it.

    Rose Smith: Nice girls don't let men kiss them until after they're engaged. Men don't want the bloom rubbed off.

    Esther Smith: Personally, I think I have too much bloom. Maybe that's the trouble with me.

  • Rose Smith: Money. I hate, loathe, despise and abominate money.

    Mr. Alonzo Smith: You also spend it.

  • Rose Smith: Agnes Smith, you're nothing less than a murderer. You could have killed dozens of people!

    Agnes Smith: Oh, Rose, you're so stuck up.

  • Agnes Smith: I can't get hungry till it gets dark.

    Katie the Maid: Dinner's at five-thirty. You can eat blind-folded!

    Mrs. Anna Smith: We have to be out of the dining room by six-thirty. Warren Sheffield is telephoning Rose from New York. And Rose, if I were you, I wouldn't committ myself one way or another. After all...

    Rose Smith: Mama, for goodness sakes!

    Mrs. Anna Smith: After all, we know very little about him. Why, we haven't even met his folks.

    Rose Smith: It seems to me that one little phone call is causing an awful lot of excitement in this family!

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Besides, you're entirely too young and I don't think your father will allow it.

    Katie the Maid: Mrs. Smith, if I'm going to keep lying to your daughters, I'll have to ask for more money.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Now, remember, not a word of this to your papa. You know how he plagues the girls about their beaus.

    Agnes Smith: Everybody knows but Papa?

    Grandpa: Your papa's not supposed to know. It's enough we're letting him work hard every day to support the whole flock of us. He can't have everything.

  • Warren Sheffield: [on the telephone with Rose] Wait, Rose! We still have... 36 more seconds!

    Rose Smith: I have an engagement. I think I can hear Joe's voice, now.

    Grandpa: [lifts the tablecloth and looks under the table] Good evening, Joe!

  • Agnes Smith: Rose, what did you get me for Christmas?

    Rose Smith: You'll find out tomorrow.

  • 'Tootie' Smith: I wanna sleep right here.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Of course you will, darling.

    'Tootie' Smith: And I wanna wear Esther's nightgown.

    Rose Smith: I'll get it for you right now.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: I hate to think about what your papa's going to do when he hears about all this. He may strike that Truett boy.

    Rose Smith: I'll do that, Mama.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: All right. And I'll get you some ice cream and cake, Tootie.

    'Tootie' Smith: [singing] Feed a cold, starve a fever. I was drunk last night, dear Mother, I was drunk the night before. But if you'll forgive me, Mother, I'll never get drunk anymore!

    Esther Smith: I got him! He didn't even have a chance to scratch me.

    Rose Smith: Why, your dress is torn.

    Esther Smith: Oh, that must've happened while he was trying to hold me off. I bit him!

    'Tootie' Smith: [clapping her hands] I bit him, too!

  • Warren Sheffield: Rose Smith, we can't go on like this any longer. I've positively decided we're going to get married at the earliest opportunity and I don't want to hear any arguments. That's final. I love you. Merry Christmas.

    Rose Smith: Merry Christmas

    Mr. Alonzo Smith: Anna, who is that boy?

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Now Lonny he's a very fine young man. We'll talk about it later.

    Grandpa: That young man is so excited he's liable to leave on his honeymoon without Rose.

  • Mrs. Anna Smith: Rose, Esther, the water's hot. We're eating early tonight, so if you're going to wash your hair, you better do it now.

    Rose Smith: All right, Mama. Es, why are we eating early?

    Esther Smith: Well, you certainly don't want the whole family sitting there drinking in every word while a man proposes to you long-distance.

    Rose Smith: Proposes? I don't see why you think Warren's going to propose to me.

    Esther Smith: Well, why else would he be calling you long-distance? Do you know what it costs?

    Rose Smith: I'm not even sure I'll be in. My dear, when you get to be my age, you'll find there are more important things in life than boys!

  • Rose SmithEsther Smith: [singing] Meet me in St. Louie, Louie, meet me at...

    Mr. Alonzo Smith: For heaven's sake, stop that screeching!

    Rose Smith: We're sorry, Papa.

    Mr. Alonzo Smith: The fair won't open for seven months, and that's all anybody ever sings about or talks about. I wish they would all meet at the fair and leave me alone.

  • Agnes Smith: Rose, it's six-thirty and Warren hasn't called yet.

    'Tootie' Smith: Maybe he found another girl.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Quiet, you two.

    Rose Smith: Mama, I assure you that I'm not the slightest bit sensitive about Warren Sheffield.

    Grandpa: The queen has spoken.

    Alonzo 'Lon' Smith Jr.: I suppose Warren's too young, too. Every fellow I introduce her to is too young.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Now, listen. Your papa will be down in a minute, and if we all eat quickly, we may still get out of here before the call comes through.

    Esther Smith: Warren is twenty-one and I think that's a perfect age.

    Rose Smith: He's practically a child.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Your father was twenty when we were married.

    Grandpa: We gave him the bachelor dinner the night before. He almost missed the wedding!

  • Rose Smith: What did you say, Warren?

    Warren Sheffield: Nothing. I was waiting for you to talk.

    Rose Smith: Oh. Well, did you want to discuss anything in particular?

    Warren Sheffield: What?

    Rose Smith: I said, was there anything special you wanted to ask me?

    Warren Sheffield: I can't hear you, Rose.

    Rose Smith: That's funny. I can hear you plainly.

    Warren Sheffield: Isn't this great? Here I am in New York and there you are in St. Louis and it's just like you're in the next room.

    Rose Smith: What was that?

    Warren Sheffield: I said, it's just like you're in the next room! Uh, Rose, I hope you don't misunderstand what I'm about to say.

    Rose Smith: Yes?

    Warren Sheffield: I don't think you better mention this call to anyone.

  • [talking on the telephone]

    Warren Sheffield: Isn't this great? Here I am in New York, and there you are in St. Louis, and it's just like you're in the next room!

    Rose Smith: What was that?

    Warren Sheffield: [yelling] I said, IT'S JUST LIKE YOU'RE IN THE NEXT ROOM!

    Rose Smith: Oh.

  • Rose Smith: Thank you for dropping me off, Colonel Darly.

    Col. Darly: It's my pleasure, Miss Smith.

    Rose Smith: I'm sure the ice cream would have melted if it weren't for your thoughtfulness.

    Col. Darly: Glad to be of service. Good night.

    Rose Smith: Wouldn't you like to come in? There's plenty of ice cream, and I'm sure my folks would love to meet you.

    Col. Darly: Thank you, Miss Smith, but some other time.

  • Grandpa: That doctor must be walking!

    Rose Smith: Should I call Papa at his office?

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Oh, heavens no, don't call your father! What could he do? There, there, Tootie, darling.

    'Tootie' Smith: He tried to kill me...

    Mrs. Anna Smith: Now tell Mommy what happened.

    Esther Smith: It was the streetcar. I think it hit her.

    Rose Smith: It must have knocked her onto the sidewalk, didn't it, Tootie?

    'Tootie' Smith: No, it wasn't a streetcar. It was John Truett. He tried to kill me.

    Mrs. Anna Smith: John Truett hit you?

    'Tootie' Smith: He tried to kill me, and when I screamed, he ran away.

    Esther Smith: Tootie Smith, that's a monstrous falsehood. John Truett would never hit a girl, least of all my sister.

  • Rose Smith: Oh, Es, isn't he simply enchanting? And so mature!

    Esther Smith: Well, how did it happen? Where did you meet?

    Rose Smith: I was coming out of the shop and he was coming in. We bumped into each other!

    Esther Smith: Accidentally?

    Rose Smith: Almost!
