The Love Trap


[Part-talkie]

1
"I want you girls to 
 watch exactly the 
 way Evelyn does this
       step."

2
"If I catch any of you 
 doing it like her, you'll
     be fired, too!"

3
"How are you at the 
'Off to Buffalo' step
   -- any good?"

4
"Keep right on going till
 you hit Buffalo -- and
   then don't stop!"

5
"Evelyn, there's no reason
 for a good-looking kid
 like you being broke in
       New York."

6
"You come over to Guy
 Emory's party with me
 tonight and you'll get
 fifty dollars just for
    looking pretty!"

7
Guy Emory's apartment
 - - where the upper 
crust makes whoopee 
with the breadwinners.

8
"That's the second gin 
 riskey I've had - and
 I haven't heard from 
       them yet."

9
"That's Judge Harrington.
 You play up to him - -
 he's got blue blood and
      greenbacks."

10
"All right, honey, I'll
 trade with you and
 let you have Guy 
      Emory."

11
"Fifty dollars! Oh, I 
 couldn't take that!"

12
"Why worry about one 
 dress - think of all the 
 other dresses in the 
       world."

13
"Won't you let me get 
 you one from Perret's, 
   in the morning?"

14
"Young lady, don't you
 know enough to go in
   out of the rain?"

15
"Sit down and make 
 yourself at home."

16
"Have you been living 
     here long?"

17
"Oh, about ten minutes."

18
"Let me take you some 
 place. You can't stay 
 here or you'll float away."

19
"You can hop into my 
 cab -- at least until
 the storm blows over."

20
"But -- what about 
  my furniture?"

21
"Leave that to me. I'm
 not the man to let help-
 less furniture suffer."

22
"Where to?"

23
"Just keep on till I tell 
 you to stop. Drive 
 south -- it's warmer."

24
"Take a squint at 
   that meter!"

25
"What's wrong with it?
 It looks all right to me."

26
"Only one hundred dollars 
 short. When we get to 
 the next town, I'll wire 
       for more."

27
And so, if it wasn't 
  exactly marriage 
a la carte -- it was
marriage a la taxi-
        cab.

28
"Mother and Sis arrived
 from Europe this morning
 -- and they'll be up here
       any minute!"

29
"Let me congratulate you 
 on your entrance - - it
   was quite original!"

30
"What was your maiden 
   name, my dear?"

31
"Todd - Evelyn Todd."

32
"Oh - the Philadelphia
        Todds?"

33
"Then it must be the 
    Boston Todds."

34
"Yes, that's it, the Boston
 Todds  -- the big bean 
         people."

35
"No, my family lives in 
 Squeedunk, Illinois."

36
"Is that a nice place?"

37
"Very nice. But I haven't 
 been there since I joined 
       the chorus."

38
"My poor, poor boy!"

39
"And you're really a 
 chorus girl -- -- with
 tights and everything?"

40
"I have a surprise for 
 you, Uncle -- a great 
      surprise!"

41
"Mother, dear -- --
 won't you kiss Evelyn
      goodbye?"

42
"We'd love to have you 
 all come over to dinner 
   tomorrow evening."

43
"Oh, Paul - I had a 
 feeling that they
 wouldn't like me."

44
"The folks are fifteen
 minutes late - maybe
   they had traffic 
       trouble."

45
"Maybe something is 
 wrong - - I'll call up 
   and find out."

46
"I'm sorry, sir -- Mrs.
 Harrington is sick in 
        bed."

47
"She's probably had a 
  nervous breakdown 
 from seeing what her
 'poor boy' married!"

48
"How can you be so selfish
 when mother's sick --
 I'm going over to see her
 and you can stay here!"

49
"A person called 'Bunny'
     is phoning."

50
"I'll bet you're the 
 happiest little bride 
    in New York!"

51
"Bunny, dear - - could
  you come over and 
  see me for a few
      minutes?"

52
"Sure thing! I'll be
    right over."

53
"Evelyn invited me 
 over - so let's all go
 and surprise her!"
