Our Dancing Daughters

1
"You look sweet, darling!
If I do say it -- I picked 
   myself some snappy 
        parents!"

2
"New perfume?"

3
"Mother -- how vicious!"

4
"You're too young to 
use such perfume. I'll 
      take it."

5
"I'm going to the Yacht
Club. See you at dawn!"

6
"Give us your toast,
       Diana!"

7
"To myself! I have to
live with myself until 
I die - so may I always
   like - myself!"

8
"Right, Diana! There's
the whole racket of
   decency in one 
      swallow!"

9
"Mind you and mother
get home before I do, 
        Dad!"

10
"- and what's more, if I so
much as smell one cigarette
on you, Beatrice - - your
    allowance ends!"

11
"And you, Freddie -- no
flat tires tonight! Get
your sister home by
twelve -- or you can't 
use the car again!"

12
"I don't think we should 
let them go about with 
that wild Diana Medford."

13
"Don't worry -- children
and horses are alike --
keep the rein tight
enough and they'll
     behave!"

14
"Beatrice, you must marry
me -- I'll keep on asking
  until you say 'yes'."

15
"I can't marry you, 
Norman - I can't -"

16
"Ann, you're sneaking 
my stockings again!"

17
"What a liar you are!"

18
"Mother -- you always 
keep the best things
   for yourself!"

19
"Don't worry, Mother --
I won't marry Freddie.
Not enough money!"

20
"Ann, be cautious. A rich 
man wants his money's
        worth!"

21
"I know, Mother -- you've
preached the formula
often enough! Beauty --
   and -- purity."

22
"But after I'm married,
won't I have a fling!"

23
"Private party in there,
Mr. Blaine -- do you
mind being served out
        here?"

24
"Li'l hot baby want 
 a cool li'l sip?"

25
"I said a sip -- not
     a shower!"

26
"Ben Blaine of Birmingham
- best half-back Alabama
       ever had."

27
"Wouldst fling a hoof 
      with me?"

28
"Here for long,
 Mr. Blaine?"

29
"I wasn't -- but I am.
 And don't call me
    Mr. Blaine."

30
"All right -- Ben. And
I'm known as -- Diana
   the Dangerous!"

31
"That's dough-rey-me
himself! Just came
into the Blaine millions."

32
"This sweet little girl
wants to meet you,
Ben -- -- give her a
      hand!"

33
"Oh, no -- thanks --
  I never drink."

34
"She just inhales!"

35
"I must go. Mother
doesn't like me to 
stay out so late."

36
"Ben -- can't you see the 
yearning in my innocent 
      blue eyes?"

37
"-- I'm just dying for --"

38
"-- a cigarette --!"

39
"Bea -- why won't you 
      marry me?"

40
"Before I met you, Norman
-- before I knew anything
about love -- -- things
     happened --"

41
"Why should I let - anything
like that - - come between
us? You love only me now -
       don't you?"

42
"Were -- they -- of
    our crowd?"

43
"No -- don't tell me!
  I don't want to 
      know --"

44
"Do you think a friendly
  kiss would shock the
    little stranger?"

45
"What a service station 
you turned out to be!"

46
"Mother, I met the 
most divine young 
  man tonight!"

47
"He's adorable! Different,
you know - serious about 
       things --"

48
"Bradstreet says he has
millions! Go after him!"

49
"I will -- if Diana doesn't
       interfere."

50
"Diana's too free -- in
public. When it comes
to marriage, men are
still old-fashioned."

51
WEEK-END --

52
"Would you mind fixing
     my saddle?"

53
"There's nothing wrong 
  with your saddle."

54
"I know it."

55
"Hadn't we better go 
  back for them?"

56
"No -- we've got to dress.
Don't forget we're dining
   on Norman's yacht
        tonight."

57
"It's such a pleasant
thing -- just to be
       alive!"

58
"You want to taste
all of life -- don't
       you?"

59
"Yes -- all! I want to
 hold out my hands
and catch it -- like
  the sunlight."

60
"Bea -- I'm in LOVE!"

61
"Ben?"

62
"You ought to thank God,
Diana -- you'll marry the
first man -- you love."

63
"He hasn't asked me 
yet .... but he will! 
  I know he will!"

64
"Where's Ben?"

65
"I don't know -- he hasn't
    shown up tonight."

66
"And little Annikins?
Where's dear little
     Annikins?"

67
"She had a wretched 
headache and I put 
   her to bed."

68
"Methinks there's dirty
  work at the cross-
   roads tonight!"

69
"You were sweet to walk
with me, Ben. I was afraid
  to come out alone --"

70
"Something's worrying 
you, Ben. Can't you -
     tell me?"

71
"I was just thinking -
  a man has to be
sure of the girl he
     marries --"

72
"I know how you must
feel, Ben -- about girls
who are daring -- and
free with their -- love --"

73
"I know I seem stupid -
I can't be daring - and
free with men - I'm not
    a 'modern' --"

74
"- but it's because I want
a home -- a husband --
and babies. And I want
to be - worthy of them -"

75
"I'll get Ben -- and meet
   you at the lodge."

76
"Ben! Ben!"

77
"Naughty -- naughty!
 No bedtime story
     tonight!"

78
"Why, baby -- does
this mean -- -- an
   engagement?"

79
"Norman wanted a quiet
wedding -- none of the
       crowd."

80
"He's wonderful, Di. I've
told him everything --
and he forgives -- loves
         me."

81
"I must hurry, Di -- --
I'm going to meet --
     my husband."

82
"What's wrong with me, 
Dad -- what's wrong 
      with me?"

83
"I'm not a liar -- --
a cheat -- I've been
      decent!"

84
"And I've lost -- and
the others have won!
    Why -- why?"

85
"But you've been honest,
dear -- you can still --
    like yourself."

86
"No -- no! You can't be
honest -- frank! Men
want flattery - trickery -
lies -- lies -- lies!"

87
"How's the Missus?"

88
"If this rain keeps 
up -- we'll drop in 
  on you later."

89
"I'm sorry -- but our
house isn't quite 
ready for guests."

90
"Don't mention to Norman 
that we saw any of the 
       'crowd'."

91
"Your Dad brought 
  me your mail."

92
"Beastly day -- don't
  suppose you and 
  Diana got out?"

93
"See anyone you knew?"

94
"Your invitation today
was so cordial we just
  had to come over."

95
"I heard from Ann today.
Has she written you yet?"

96
"Annikins in Paradise -
that's rich! Now I'll 
     tell one!"

97
"Here's to the husbands -
of the girls we love!"

98
"Here's to the lovers --
of the girls we marry!"

99
"Come again! I'm sure
you're always welcome."

100
"Norman -- you must
forget -- trust me!"

101
"I love you -- then
I hate you -- then
I love you again --"

102
"If you had been only
mine -- just mine --"

103
"He loves you, dear --
  he'll come back."

104
"Yes -- all through our 
lives together -- he'll be
coming back -- -- then
  leaving me again."

105
"You can thank God, Diana
.... you've never done any-
thing that can come back
afterward and punish you."

106
"Another bracelet? Ben
is a good provider!"

107
"I buy them myself -- ten
service stripes -- one for
each month of marriage."

108
"You're sneaking my 
  clothes again!"

109
"Haven't you any love -
any respect -- for your
    own mother?"

110
"Freddie!"

111
"Ann -- Ben may not be 
blind forever -- you're
  playing with fire!"

112
"I suppose you're going 
to the farewell party
for Diana tonight?"

113
"I've got to go - my
sister's giving it."

114
"Ben didn't want to 
go -- and made me
     refuse."

115
"I know! I'll slip away
from Ben and meet
you at the Roma --
  side door --"

116
"Freddie wanted us to 
go to dinner - - but
mother phoned she's 
ill - - needs me."

117
"Ann, how can you stand 
that pup hanging around?"

118
"Darling -- you can't be
  jealous of Freddie?"

119
"Let's have dinner here
together -- -- then
we'll both go to your
      mother."

120
"I'm not hungry - -
and you know mother!
I think she's jealous 
    even of you."

121
"Your mother wants you
to lend her an evening 
wrap -- she's going on 
     a -- racket!"

122
"Why must you lie 
   to me, Ann?"

123
"Because mother changes 
her mind -- you accuse 
    me of lying!"

124
"Hysterics won't work
this time! I know
your game -- and I
won't stand for it!"

125
"I won't stay in this house 
and listen to your insults!
    I won't! I won't!"

126
"I -- I was alone, Bea --
thought I'd drop in for
       a second."

127
"Have you seen Diana?"

128
"I tell you I gotta go,
Ann -- 'smy sister's
        party."

129
"I'm going with you --
'smy club and I was
 spesh'ly invited."

130
"You're in no condish'n
to face crowd, Ann.
I don't want myself
    disgraced."

131
"You'll be away --
     a year?"

132
"I'll miss you."

133
"I like to know you 
   are -- near."

134
"Diana - something went
wrong with me once.
I didn't understand
you - - and I'll never
  forgive myself."

135
"I see -- because I was 
a woman - not a lying
imitation - you decided
   I was unworthy."

136
"But I thought there 
was nothing finer 
than -- truth. And 
I still think so!"

137
"Well -- this is hot! No
  wonder you tried to 
   keep me at home!"

138
"Ann -- stop it!"

139
"Trying to run away?
Scared of me? Well,
you ought to be, you - !"

140
"You're going to listen
        to me!"

141
"Come on, everybody --
great show -- fireworks
   'n everything!"

142
"Look at 'em! Nice couple
-- my husband -- and the
    saintly Diana!"

143
"There isn't a decent 
thought in your 
nasty little mind!"

144
"You played the wide-eyed 
innocent until you got a
husband! Your marriage
was a lie -- like the rest
    of your life!"

145
"Which all means I got 
 the man you wanted!"

146
"- and the way you were 
necking Ben when I came
in, shows you haven't
   given up hope!"

147
"I do love Ben - -
I'll always love him."

148
"You see - - she
   admits it!"

149
"- and I have to leave 
him - to a thing like
        you!"

150
"Freddie, take her away!"

151
"Not me! I don't crave
      headlines!"

152
"I'll make you both suffer 
for this -- all my life!"

153
"Diana -- Diana --
  I love you --"

154
"I've loved you all the
time -- and I've lost 
  you -- forever --"

155
"All my life -- without
      you -- --"

156
"No matter where I am,
Ben -- I'll be thinking of
you -- loving you --
       always."

157
"Is there anyone
   upstairs?"

158
"Yeah -- two dames.
   One's drunk."

159
"I'll explain later, dear --
help me to get her home."

160
"Women -- women --
    working!"

161
"Hey - - why are you 
working? Haven't you
any daughters -- pretty
     daughters?"

162
"Pretty daughters - doll
'em up -- a rich man
  wants his money's
     worth -- !"

163
"Yessir .... my mother knew!
Look at me .... I got every-
thing .... poor li'l Diana ....
    she got nothing --"

164
"Them won't do her no 
    good -- now."
