END OF THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
gimme back my purse! help! police! somebody...! excuse me sir my purse was
miss some man grabbed my purse and he
that man, he stole my purse! that man, he stole my purse!
-learn to share it with the rest of us
oh, i meant to trip you
of all the dirty rotten-
my purse is gone!
my hat, my scarf, my shoe
they stole your shoe?
while i was wearing it. ten minutes in this town and i already have my new york horror story
honey, youre my new york horror story
but its every penny i have!
...id make a beeline back to keokuck or gopherville or
salina, kansas. and who are you, the unwelcome wagon?
...my good deed for the decade-
oh, well if this is your good deed, id hate to see a bad one, cause youre really not helping!
im trying to, by telling you the way it is! look you got a place to stay?
any friends or family nearby?
and you dont have a job?
no buts. you aint got nothin. listen, i said i was doing you a good deed.
the "hotel priscilla"?
"well i had my big adventure, but it sure is good to be back in my own bed"
START NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME TAG
i aint got nothin
so i aint got nothin to lose! who needs a hat? who needs a purse? and who needs you mr. whoever-you-are cause im a pioneer woman pal! the woolworth building! the met life tower! theres gold in them there hills and im gonna get it or die trying!
meersie...hello? its me...its millie. meersie?!
authorized personnel only! now where my rent?
i dont have it yet-
we say today at noon!
but i finally found a job that meets all my requirements, and they said theyd call me by-
i bet its them!
you didnt get it. i give you 2 minutes to pack your things or you find them on the street.
mrs. meers to you.
the other girls call you meersie.
-the other girls paid in full. you had 1 week on credit and time run out!
-excuse me, id like to inquire about the room for rent
what are you, listening at the door? even an ambulance chaser waits for a siren!
the sign says "vacancy"
dont believe everything you read
may i please see the concierge?
i dont know what that is, but i know this hotel hasnt got it.
trust me, you dont want to stay here. the managers mean, the rooms are hot, and the water, always cold.
HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES
"EVERY WAKING MOMENT WITH MY HEART AFIRE"
well youre out of luck. theres one room available, and its mine. so unless you want a roommate-
"NOW IM LIVING TELL ONE AND ALL IM LIVING"
put a sock in it sister! you need a room, i need the rent...i guess we could room together-for a night or two, that is. its a single bed, so you take the floor
"I WANT AN ON-THE-DOLE MATE SOUL MATE STORMY-WEATHER FRIENDS"
but if you can afford the ritz-
"HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES"
we could be very good for each other. ill show you how to eat on a nickel
and ill show you which fork to use
ill teach you how to stretch a dollar
and ill teach you how to invest one
im on the way up!
im on the way down!
its a good thing we met in the middle!
my very first poor person!
hey, im broke, not poor
theres a difference?
and how! poor sounds permanent, broke can be fixed. i have a plan so far ahead of its time, its almost too bold, too daring, too new woman!
youre frightening me!
yeah? then this'll straighten your curls: im going to marry my boss!
i dont know. i havent got one yet!
surely you believe that love-
has nothing to do with it! dont you read vogue? this months issue clearly states that modern marriage is a business arrangement. love comes later, occasionally with the man youre actually married to.
where will you find him?
the classifieds. ive been interviewing boss after boss, but so far, married, married, engaged, married, single-and-i-can-see-why-
dont you read the tabloids? i find they really capture the flavor of the huddled masses.
"manhattan's most eligible bachelors"
"the movers and shakers that make manhattan tick!" all of whom need wives...
and one of whom must need a stenog!
mrs. meers, before you bite my head off-
silly millie, meersie doesnt bite. but whos your friend?
we havent met. millie dillmount.
shes gonna bunk with me, and pay the rent until i find a suitable boss.
...as luck would have it, a nice, sunny room just became available right next door to millie
you mean, 1208? but ethel peas-
ethel peas just checked out.
she only just checked in.
ethel joined an all-girl repertory company for their mongolian tour
but she chewed my ear off not two hours ago about her nonexistent career.
...twelfth floor dear
this way miss dorothy. and "other half" lesson #1: some of the girls practice their routines in here on account of the hardwood floor. i think it did something to the machinery. now you have to tap dance to get this thing going. and kick. kick, kick!
