Champagne

"You'd better hurry,
 Miss, before she 
      sinks."

2
"Flying the Atlantic?"

3
"Oh dear no - I just
 wanted to catch this 
        boat."

4
"Wouldn't I love to
 see dear Daddy's
 face when he hears
 I've run away with
 you after all - and
 lost his aeroplane
      besides!"

5
Introductions aboard
  ship are easily 
arranged.

6
Cupid at the prow
  - but Neptune
at the helm.

7
"I've arranged for
 the Captain to
   marry us."

8
"You've arranged!
 Don't I arrange 
    anything?"

9
"You think your money
 entitles you to do all
    the arranging."

10
"My money enabled
 me to fly half across 
 the Atlantic to join
        you."

11
"And your father 
 thinks his money
 enables him to insult
  me by wireless."

12
"You'll not spoil my
 trip - I'll have a
 good time in Paris
 in spite of your silly
       ideas."

13
Paris - revelry -
  and at last the
longed for arrival.

14
"You've neglected me
 for a whole week."

15
"Come on in - I've
 met some lively
 people - invented
 a new cocktail -
 and bought a lot of 
  snappy gowns."

16
"Hold everything!
 The next one's a
   knock-out!"

17
"I've always understood
 that simplicity was
 the keynote of good
       taste."

18
"If I've offended
 your good taste
 I must try to
 make amends."

19
"Which do you think
 the most charming
     creation?"

20
"The wearer,
 undoubtedly."

21
"You here, daddy!
 What a pleasant
    surprise!"

22
"Betty, I've something
 very serious to say
   to you - alone."

23
"That dress suits you
 better than you know."

24
"I followed you - the
 market broke - and
 I have just learned
 that we're ruined."

25
"Wall-street took
 advantage of my
    absence."

26
"We've lost all our
 money - I suppose
 you're happy now."

27
"He's gone - just
  as I thought."

28
"Daddy, we've still
 got my jewellery -
 I'll sell it all."

29
"I didn't find fault 
 with you - and 
 you lost millions."

30
"I baked these
 myself, Daddy."

31
"I'm not very
 hungry to-day."

32
"Now I've found you
 I'm going to take 
 you out of this 
 wretched place."

33
"Do you think that I'd
   leave Daddy now?"

34
"I'd even look after
    your father."

35
"Very kind of you -
 - but you needn't
      bother."

36
"You seem to forget
 there's such a thing
     as pride."

37
"You can't live on
      pride."

38
"I shall get a job."

39
"You'll make a mess
 of it, as you do
 everything you lay
  your hands on."

40
"What brought you
     in here?"

41
"Teeth!"

42
"We're only interested 
     in legs here."

43
"I must have come in
 the wrong door -
 but it's all the same
 to me if you can give
      me a job."

44
"I am interested in
 a cabaret - I can
  place you there."

45
"I wouldn't go near
 him just now, dearie."

46
"How dare you inter-
 rupt my dinner -
 don't you see I'm the
  maître d'hotel?"

47
"I'm so sorry, I
 thought you were 
  a gentleman."

48
"For gentlemen in 
 evening dress only."

49
"But you said 'gentlemen
   in evening dress'."

50
"What do you call
    that one?"

51
"It's a maiden's
     prayer."

52
"Strange that we should
 meet again - and in
 a place like this."

53
"I used to pay to
 come to places
 like this - now
  they pay me."

54
"Someone has taken
 my table - get me
     another."

55
"Don't you realise that
 anything could happen
 to a girl like you, in 
  a place like this?"

56
"I thought you were 
     with him."

57
"No, I work here
 - I'm one of the
  flower girls."

58
"For a beginner, you
 sure know how to
  pick 'em, kid."

59
"It's bad enough to
 find you here, but
 worse to find you
    enjoying it."

60
"How dare you, a
 daughter of mine,
 disgrace yourself
    like this!"

61
"But - I was only
 trying to help you,
      daddy."

62
"You fooled me - -
 humiliated me - -
 believed the worst of
 me! Oh, how I hate
     you both."

63
"You at this strange
       hour."

64
"You told me to come
 to you if I needed a
 friend - and I do."

65
"I am sorry, but I
 leave for America
 in a few hours."

66
"America - Home! Oh,
 take me with you."

67
"What are you doing 
       here?"

68
"But what are you
   doing here?"

69
"Meet my very
 good friend."

70
"But father he's a -"

71
"And we'll have an
 aeroplane to meet
 us outside New York,
 won't we, daddy?"

72
"I'll arrange for the
 captain to marry us."

73
"You'll arrange!"
