It Happened One Night video
from 1934 movie with
Claudette Colbert as Ellie and Clark Gable as Peter Warne.
Ellie Andrews: I'd pay you now, only all I had when I jumped off the yacht was a watch. I had to pawn it to get these clothes. I'll give you my address. You can contact me in New York.
Peter Warne: Never mind. I had you pegged right from the jump. Just the spoiled brat of a rich father. The only way you get anything is to buy it. You're in a jam and all you can think of is your money. It never fails, does it?
Ellie Andrews: Just whatever gave you any idea I'd stand for this?
Peter Warne: Now wait a minute. Let's get this straightened out right now. If you're nursing any silly notion that I'm interested in you, forget it. You're just a headline to me.
Ellie Andrews: A headline? You're not a newspaper man, are you?
Peter Warne: Chalk up one for your side. Now listen. You want to get to King Westley, don't you? All right, I'm here to help you. What I want is your story. Exclusive. A day-to-day account. All about your mad fight to happiness. I need that story. Between you and me, I've got to have it.
Ellie Andrews: Have you ever been in love, Peter?
Peter Warne: Me?
Ellie Andrews: Yes. Haven't you ever thought about it at all? It seems to me you could make some girl wonderfully happy.
Peter Warne: Sure, I've thought about it. Who hasn't? If I could ever meet the right sort of girl. Where are you gonna find her? Somebody that's real. Somebody that's alive. They don't come that way anymore. Have I ever thought about it? I've even been sucker enough to make plans. I saw an island in the Pacific once. Never been able to forget it. That's where I'd like to take her. She'd have to be the sort of a girl who'd jump in the surf with me and love it as much as I did. Nights when you, the moon and the water all become one. You feel you're part of something big and marvellous. That's the only place to live. The stars are so close overhead you feel you could reach up and stir them around. I've been thinking about it. Boy, if I could ever find a girl who was hungry for those things.
