Terms in this set (37)
Finch: "Pardon me, ma'am. You should be wearing this. It goes with your hair."
Young man. You just want me to have this flower? You don't know who I am?
Finch: "That doesn't matter. What matters is that the flower seemed to cry out to be worn by you."
Young man, I'm Miss Jones, Mr. Biggley's secretary.
Finch: "No, you can't be. I mean...that is...you just can't be."
Finch: "Well, from Bud Frump's description of you, I'd never have, I mean, you're not a frightening person."
Finch: "If it's not out of place for me to say so, Miss Jones, I think you're a very attractive person. No matter what Bud Frump says."
What did you say your name was?
Finch, ma'am. F I N C H. Finch. Pierrepont Finch.
How is it I haven't seen you before?
Finch: Oh, I'm not supposed to deliver the executive mail. That's his job. Bud Frump. F R U M P.
Mmmm. Well, thank you very much, Finch. You're a very interesting young man.
Gatch: Say, Jonesy...I'd like an appointment with the boss at around three.
I'll check on it, Milt, and let you know.
Gatch: Ah, flowers. You got a new boyfriend, Jonesy?
This was given to me by a very nice young man. You should know him. Finch?
Finch, this is Mr. Gatch.
Mr. Gatch would be a good man for you to know. His department is very important.
Finch: Very find man, Mr. Gatch. I hear he has an opening in his department.
Yes, he has, but he hasn't been able to make up his mind. Well, thank you for the flower, young man.
Bud: Hi, Jonesy.
Biggley: Yes, what do you want, Miss Jones?
Mr. Biggley, your wife is calling.
Biggley: That's when your nephew is a gosh darn fool. Dang it. Miss Jones.
Yes, Mr. B?
Biggley: Miss Jones, I've told you that talking to my wife upsets me.
Well, JB, you said to put her on and ...
Biggley: Never mind that. I need something to calm my nerves. Where is my...you know..
I put it in the back of your right hand bottom drawer.
Biggley: The next time Bud complains to his mother and she calls you and you call me, you're all fired!
Excuse me, Mr. Biggley?
Biggley: Yes, Miss Jones.
There's a young lady who insists on speaking with you, Mr. B. She says it's personal.
Biggley: What's she want - what's her name?
She says you'll know.
Biggley: Did you call my wife and say I won't be home for dinner?
Yes, Mr. B. By the way, you left your golf clubs in the office. Tomorrow is Saturday and you're playing with Mr. Womper, the chairman of the board.
Biggley: Oh yes. Well, I'll be staying in town tonight so I'll come in and pick the clubs up in the morning.
And you asked me to remind you about your college alumni association.
Biggley: Oh, yeah. Well, send them the same check. I get a kick out of thinking of their faces when they get that fat check from Old Least-Likely-To-Succeed.
Very well, Mr. Biggley.
Finch: Oh, Miss Jones!
Hello, Ponty. How's the young junior executive?
Finch: Just fine, Miss Jones, thanks to the helpful advice I've been getting from you.
Well, I'm glad our little talks have proven valuable.
Finch: They sure have. Oh, by the way, good luck tonight.
Finch: Yes. In the bowling tournament. I hear that you're the best bowler on the ladies' team.
How sweet of you to be interested in a thing like that.
Finch: I'm fascinated by the hobbies of people I like.
Say! Would you like to come watch us bowl tonight?
Finch: I'd love to, Miss Jones, but I should go to bed early. I'm working tomorrow.
On Saturday? No one around here works on Saturday. Ponty, you're a very unusual boy. You'll go far.
Finch: Miss Jones, that means a lot your saying that...send a check to his old school. Harvard, isn't it?
Harvard? Don't ever let JB hear you say that. He's a Groundhog.
Finch: But where did he go to college?
Finch: Old Ivy?
Of course. They're the groundhogs. Mr. Biggley is very proud of his old school. Well, good night, Ponty.
Finch: Good night, Miss Jones.
Don't work too hard.
ACT TWO. Tackaberry: Have you guys found Finch yet?
He seems to have disappeared.
Bratt: Keep looking for Finch.
Oh, Rosemary have you seen Ponty?
Rosemary: No, Miss Jones, and I'm so worried about him.
So am I. He was a nice boy.
Rosemary: Was? What'll they do to him?
I don't know. Somebody's head has to roll.
