Guys And Dolls: Adelaide
Terms in this set (65)
Nathan: If she hears I am running the crap game she will never set foot on me again.
Hello, Nathan dear.
You go ahead, girls. Order me a tuna fish on rye and a chocolate sundae with tomato ketchup and mayonnaise.
We gotta get back to the Hot Box.
You still rehearsing?
Yeah. That slave driver Charlie— he's been working us all day. Finally I says, "Look Charlie, I'm starving! I gotta get outta here and get something to eat." And he says, "You don't want to eat. You just want to sneak out and meet that cheap bum, Nathan Detroit!"—
So what did you say to him?
I told him. I says, "I'll meet whoever I want!"
Well, don't upset yourself. How's your cold?
Oh, it's much better, thank you— Nathan! Happy Anniversary!
A present! For me?
I hope you like it.
Read the card!
I was going to get you a diamond wrist watch, with a gold band, and two rubies on the side.
Nathan, you shouldn't have.
It's all right— I didn't— I'm sorry
No, I kinda like it when you forget to give me presents. It makes me feel like we're married.
Don't worry, honey — one of these days I'll be in the money, and you'll have more mink than a mink.
Nathan darling, I can do without anything just so long as you don't start running the crap game again.
More strudel than cheesecake. That's great!
Nathan! What is this?
What was that about?
His wife's having a baby.
Why's he asking you?
Look, Adelaide, I'm expecting a fellow and I know you're hungry—
Nathan, are you trying to get ride of me?
You see, honey, you've got a cold, and it's across the street, and there're a lot of open manholes around—
Nathan darling, you're so thoughtful. You're just the sweetest person. Goodbye.
(After Hot Box Bushel And A Peck)
Hello, pie face.
How are you, handsome?
Fine. What have you got there?
A book! You're always reading books. You're becoming a regular bookie.
Nathan darling, this is very interesting. The doctor gave it to me. I went to him about my cold.
How is your cold?
It's the same. The doctor asked me how long I had had it, and I told him a long time, and I said I thought it was on account of my dancing with hardly any clothes on, which is what I usually wear, so he said to read this book, because he said it might be due to psychology.
You haven't got that, have you?
Nathan, this is the psychology that tells you why girls do certain kinds of things.
Oh! Would it tell you what kind of a doll would go for a certain kind of guy which you wouldn't think she would do so?
What do you mean?
I'm just for instance. There are certain dolls you can almost bet they wouldn't go for certain guys.
Nathan, no matter how terrible a fellow seems, you can never be sure that some girl won't go for him. Take us.
Nathan darling. Starting with next week, I'm going to get a raise. So with what I'll be making, I wondered what you would think—maybe we could finally get married.
Well, of course we're going to, sooner or later.
I know, Nathan
but I'm starting to worry about mother.
Your mother? What about your mother?
Well, Nathan, this is something I never told you before, but my mother, back in Rhode Island— She thinks we're married already.
Why would she think a thing like that?
I couldn't be engaged for fourteen years, could I? People don't do that in Rhode Island. They all get married.
Then why is it such a small State?
Anyway—I wrote her I was married.
You did, huh?
Uh huh. Then, after about two years—
What after about 2 years?
We had a baby.
You told your mother we had a baby?
I had to, Nathan. Mother wouldn't have understood if we hadn't.
What type baby was it?
It was a boy. I named it after you, Nathan.
And—uh—where is Nathan Jr supposed to be now?
He's in boarding school. I wrote Mother he won the football game last Saturday.
I wish I had a bet on it.
But Nathan—that's not all Nathan.
Don't tell me he has a little sister.
All those years, Nathan! Mother believes in big families.
Just give me the grand total.
Your mother must be a glutton for punishment
Anyway, Nathan, now we're finally getting married and it won't be a lie anymore.
Adelaide, how could you do such a thing! To a nice old broad like your mother?
But Nathan, you don't even know my mother!
But I'll be meeting her soon, and what'll I tell her? What'll I tell her we did with the 5 kids? Traded them to the Phillies or something. What are we going to do?
We could get married.
We ain't ready.
I'm ready Nathan. What do you think I got in this box? Nathan! What do you think I got in this box?
"Sally's Wedding Shop" I cant guess.
It's a wedding veil. I've had it for 3 years. I won't show it to you, because it's bad luck—would you like to see it?
It's bad luck
So you see, Nathan darling, I got the veil. All we need now is our license and our blood test.
Blood test. It's a law.
What a city! First they close my crap game, then they open my veins!
Nathan, you're not planning to run your crap game again?
Anybody see an earring out here?
I don't think so.
Adelaide, look at me. I'm down on my knees.
Oh, get up. It reminds me of your crap game.
After all we love each other and we're going to get married
I don't believe you anymore.
That's my girl. See you tomorrow.
It says here—
Indeed! What kind of party?
Goodby, girls, see you tomorrow.
It's a bachelor dinner. Nathan's getting married!
Which nobody cannot deny.
Nathan darling, I'm so thrilled! Why didn't you tell me?
It was a surprise.
But when I saw you standing there with all these... fine gentlemen... I never dreamed it was a bachelor dinner. I thought it was a—
Yes, sir! A bachelor dinner.
Just think after fourteen years I'm finally going to become Mrs.Nathan Detroit. Time certainly does fly.
Tell me, Nathan. When is the happy day?
When will it be Nathan?
Well, we need time for a license and our blood test.
Gee, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could be married tomorrow night. Right after the show at the Hot Box.
I'll lend you my getaway car. My Buick—
Oh, Nathan, let's do it!
My congratulations too, Nathan. And I only hope there is nothing in heredity.
Nathan, I got so many things to do before we elope. You'll be at the Hot Box tomorrow night?
I'll have a table reserved and I'll be all dressed up in whatever you elope in.
Oh, Nathan, I'm so happy. I ought to wire my mother. Only what'll I wire her.
Send the telegram and date it back.
I'd better wait until we have five children. It won't take us long.
No, you were fine.
Oh golly I don't know how I'll get home with all this stuff. It was wonderful of you to give it to me. Sky hello!
How are you, Miss Adelaide?
Oh fine, sky. Look! The girls just gave me a kitchen shower. They went to an all night drug store and surprised me with a kitchen shower! Look!
How do you do.
Glad to meet you— You know, Sky, we're eloping tomorrow night right after the Hot Box— Nathan and I.
Thank you, Sky— Gee, I feel just like a housewife, already. I'm going to love being in the kitchen—I've tried all the other rooms.
