101 Dalmatians 1 Pongo and Roger Radcliffe

Quotes Pongo: My story begins in London not so very long ago. Yet so much has happened since then, that it seems like an eternity. At that time, I lived with my pet in a bachelor flat just off Regents Park. It was a beautiful spring day, a tedious time of the year for bachelors. Oh that's my pet, Roger Radcliff, a musician of sorts. I'm the one with the spots. My name's Pongo. As far as I could see, the old notion that a bachelor's life was so... glamorous and carefree was all nonsense. It was downright dull. It was plain to see that my old pet needed someone. But if it were left up to Roger, we'd be bachelors forever. He was married to his work, writing songs. Songs about romance of all things, something he knew absolutely nothing about. Oh, he's intelligent enough, as humans go.

And I think you could say Roger is a rather handsome animal in his way. I could see no reason why my pet didn't deserve an attractive mate. At least I was determined to do my best. Of course, dogs are a pretty poor judge of human beauty. But I had a rough idea of what to look for. Unusual breed. Very unusual. Oh, surely not. Well now, what have we here? Well, a little too short coupled. Nope! I say! Well, I do say! Now there's a fancy breed. Perhaps a little too fancy. Yes, much too fancy. Too old. Too young. It was a problem, a real problem. Well, now that's a bit more like it! The most beautiful creature on four legs! Now if only the girl Well! She's very lovely too. It was almost too good to be true. I'd never find another pair like that, not if I looked for 100 years. Ah, they're heading for the park. A perfect meeting place if I can only arrange it. Uh-oh but Roger never stopped work 'til after 5:00. That would be too late. After 5:00 already. Fancy that. Roger Radcliffe: All right, Pongo. All right, boy. Pongo, boy, take it easy! What's all the hurry? Pongo, boy, slow down. Pongo: I was afraid we'd missed them. Perhaps they passed on by the park. Then suddenly I spotted them. It was a perfect situation if I planned it right. I couldn't depend on Roger. I knew what he'd do. He'd settle on the grass, puff his pipe and that would be it. No, it was all up to me. Well. At first I had no particular plan, just anything to attract attention. You know, stir things up a bit. Roger Radcliffe: Pongo, you silly old thing! Pongo! Pongo! Pongo: For a while, it seemed to work. At least they had seen one another. Things were going along first-rate. But for some strange reason they left! Roger Radcliffe: C'mon, you old renegade. We're going home. Pongo: But I wasn't giving up. I was determined that somehow they just had to meet. Anita: Oh! Roger Radcliffe: I beg your pardon. Please excuse me. Anita: I must say what on earth! Roger Radcliffe: Oh, really. Anita: Good heavens. Roger Radcliffe: Oh, dear. Anita: Oh, my new spring suit and my new hat! Roger Radcliffe: Ah, ah I'm terribly sorry. Please let me help you. I'm so sorry. I don't know what's come over him. I'm so sorry. He's never acted this way before. Anita: Please, just go away. You've done enough. Please? Roger Radcliffe: Oh. Oh, I say. Here, take mine. Oh. Preast: Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and in health; and forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her so long as ye both shall live? Roger Radcliffe: I will. Pongo: For the first six months or so we lived in a small house near the park, a modest little place but just right for two couples who were just starting out. Pongo: Perdita, darling, are you all right? Perdita: Oh, of course, dear. After all, dogs were having puppies long before our time. Pongo: Oh, that's Nanny, a wonderful cook and housekeeper. She's such a kind, understanding soul. You know, at times she seems almost canine. Anita: Roger, dear, tea time. Tea time! Roger Radcliffe: Melody first, my dear. And then the lyrics, hmm? Perdita: Oh, Pongo it's her. It's that devil woman.
