Terms in this set (41)
Going up! Going up! Thank you.
I'm going to six.
What was that?
We stopped... press the button. It'll start right in again.
Something's wrong. We're stuck.
These old elevators. You never can trust them.
I had a friend who was stuck in one for eight hours. With two german shepherds and a delivery boy.
It's kind of stuffy in here, isn't it? Isn't it stuffy?
You think so?
.... you want to try pressing the buttons?
No, that's alright. I'm sure you pressed them very well.
I did. I pressed them very well. I gave them a very good press... soooo.... I guess we're stuck.
I guess so... Maximum weight in pounds... one thousand three hundred.
What do you weigh?
A hundred and twenty-eight.
Yeah, we're fine... fine... we're just stuck in the old elevator...
Are you alright?
Me?.... it's just my first time trapped in an elevator.... trapped, trapped, trapped.
Hey!... You don't have claustrophobia, do you?
Oh no... I can't get out of.
Oh. I understand. I used to have that with zippers. I was once trapped in a dress for twenty minutes. I screamed all over Orbachs.
That's claustrophobia.... In a couple of minutes.
Sure we will.
You really think so?
I do. I really do.
But if you thought we were, what would you say?
I'd say we were really trapped.
Oh my god I knew it. I knew it!
But we're not. You really shouldn't get so excited.
Isn't this awful? .... You understand that?
"i just hope it doesn't come down to it. maybe i should yell for help?"
I'm alright, you understand..... Help--- help--- help.
My name is Charity Valentine. Hey, you're shaking.
Let me rub your wrists.
You know what I feel like doing now? What my impulse is? To take off my clothes
Oh well I don't think that would do much good.
You'd think they'd have a telephone in here, wouldn't you? Never again. I'll never go in an elevator without a telephone. I'll always check for a telephone.
We really should change the subject. ... What's your name? Your name? What's your name? You know like Frank, Harry, Sidney, Bruce... That's a name.
"oh, oscar. my name is oscar. whoo, it's stuffy. stuffy stuffy stuffy."
Now let's keep our clothes on Oscar what's your second name?
Your second name. Don't you have a second name?
No, I don't think so.
Sure you do. Like Oscar Minetti or Oscar Greenspan.
Greenspan- No Lindquist... What is that quick breathing?
That's quick breathing. don't think about it. Where do you live?
You! You! Where do you live!
In an elevator
No you don't Oscar. You live in a house.
Oh. Yes. 411 East 74th street, I gotta stop breathing so much. I'm gonna use up all the air.
We've got plenty, Oscar. Now keep talking. How old are you? Where do you work?
Heh? Yeah. ... Oh boy that's very quick breathing.
Keep talking. Oscar what else?
It's not fair. You should breathe some of the air.
Are you married Oscar? Do you have a wife.
Married? Married? For God's sake are you MARRIED?
No. No I'm not married.
Oh Oscar. You're gonna be alright.
Don't leave me.
Oh -- I won't leave you. I'm gonna stay right here in the elevator with you. And you're gonna be alright, Oscar, because I'm gonna help you.
How? What should I do?
Just do what I do! (Song: V1 Chorus 1)
Good listen, I have an idea. ... forcing the door open on the floor above
I think it could work Oscar, but gee, it sounds a little dangerous
Then don't try it. Stay here with me. (V2)
I'm alright. I'm gonna be alright.
Of course you are.
I think I've got it licked. I've got it under control.
Atta boy, Oscar.
No matter what happens now, I'm going to be alright. What was that?
The lights went out.
