Terms in this set (37)
The paper isn't out yet.
J: Morning, Miss. Can I interest you in the latest news?
I've got a headline for you: "Cheeky Bot Gets Nothing for His Troubles!"
J: I'd be delighted to bring it to you personally.
This is a private box.
J: Well, hello again.
Go away. I'm working.
J: Twice in one day. Think it's fate?
Reviewing the show for the New York Sun.
J: A working girl, huh? Doin' what?
Somewhere out there someone cares. Go tell them.
J: Hey! I work for the World.
Please go. I am not in the habit of speaking to strangers.
J: The view's better here.
Is that what it says on your rap sheet?
J: Then you're gonna make a lousy reporter. The name's Jack Kelly.
Do you mind!?
J: I admire smart girls. Beautiful. Smart. Independent.
What are you doing?
B. Beauties: "I feel bad for your wife"
You are the most impossible boy—
J: Quiet down, There's a show going on.
Why's everyone so scared of Brooklyn?
D: Me? I have to...
Asking a question. Have you got an answer?
J: What're you doin' here?
The only thing I'm following is a story. A rag-tag gang of ragamuffins wants to take on the kingmakers of New York. Think you have a chance?
J: So, what's that about? You followin' me?
Question too difficult? I'll rephrase: will the richest and most powerful men in New York give the time of day to a gang of kids who haven't got a nickel to their name?
J: Shouldn't you be at the ballet?
So I guess you'd say you're a couple of Davids looking to take on Goliath?
Cru: You don't gotta be insultin'. I got a nickel.
You didn't have to. I did.
D: We never said that.
Wake up to the new century. The game's changing. How about an exclusive interview?
J: I seen a lot of papes in my times and I ain't never noted no girl reporters writing hard news.
This is entertaining... so far.
J: Ain't your beat entertainment?
What's the last strike you organized?
J: What's the last news story you wrote?
You thinks wrong, Romeo.
Romeo: Methinks the lady needs to be handled by a real man.
You see somebody else giving you the time of day? All right, so I'm just busting out of the social pages. But you give me the exclusive, let me run with the story, and I promise I'll get you the space.
D: I say we save any exclusive for a real reporter.
Shut down a paper like the World and you're going to make the front page.
Cru: You really think we could be in the papes?
So, what's your story? Are you selling newspapers to work your way through art school?
D: Come on, Les. The folks are waiting.
But you're an artist. You've got real talent. You should be inside the paper illustrating, but outside hawking it.
J: Art school? You kiddin' me?
So tell me what you want.
J: Maybe that ain't what I want.
Have you always been their leader?
J: Can't you see it in my eyes?
Modesty is not a quality I would have pinned on you.
J: I'm a blowhard. Davey's the brains.
J: You got a name?
It's my byline, the name I publish under. Tell me about tomorrow. What are you hoping for?
J: What's the matter? Ain't ya sure?
J: I'd rather tell you what I'm hoping for tonight.
Are you scared?
J: Tomorrow, we stop the wagons.
Good answer. Good night, Mr. Kelly.
J: Do I looked scared? But ask me again in the morning.
I'll see you in the morning. And, off the record, good luck.
J: Come on, where you runnin'? It ain't even supper time!
You heard the man, "Write it good." Write it good, or it's back to wheezing your way through the flower show. No pressure. Let's go.
"Newsies Stop the World." A little hyperbole never hurt anyone.
"With all eyes fixed on the trolley strike, there's another battle brewing in the city..." ...and if I could just write about it....
Come on, Katherine, the boys are counting on you. Oh, you poor boys.
J: Hey, Plumber. Write it good. We both got a lot ridin' on you.
"A modern day David is poised to take on the rich and powerful Goliath. With the swagger of one twice his age, armed with nothing more than a few nuggets of truth, Jack Kelly stands ready to face the behemoth Pulitzer." Now that's how you turn a boy into a legend!
Me: "Just watch what happens when they do!"
