The Gilded Lily (1935) Poster

Fred MacMurray: Peter Dawes



  • Peter Dawes : But popcorn - ah, popcorn was made for watching the world go by. Look. I stick my hand in the bag without taking my eyes off the street. I throw some popcorn in my craw. I chew... and I'm still looking. That's what I call class.

    Marilyn David : Sure. Peanut eaters don't know how to live.

  • Marilyn David : Pete, you're a smart fellow. What do poor little working girls usually do next?

    Peter Dawes : Well, they usually drown themselves, one way or the other.

    Marilyn David : I'll take the other.

  • Marilyn David : Why did you print those fake stories?

    Peter Dawes : Oh, ho, ho, that. I...

    Marilyn David : Go ahead.

    Peter Dawes : Well, I did it because I love you, and that guy Gray hurt you. Nobody's gonna hurt you while I'm around and get away with it.

    Marilyn David : That's what I thought. You old windmill.

    Peter Dawes : Well, at least nobody'll ever walk out on you again.

  • Peter Dawes : Marilyn, tell me something. Do you love me?

    Marilyn David : No.

    Peter Dawes : That's the way to talk. No worries, no jealousies, just meeting here every Thursday and eating our popcorn... Why don't you love me?

    Marilyn David : Maybe I don't know what love is, but I think I do.

    Peter Dawes : What do you think?

    Marilyn David : About love?

    Peter Dawes : About love.

    Marilyn David : I think when it hits me, I'll start running three feet off the ground.

    Peter Dawes : You can duplicate that with a shot of bourbon on an empty stomach.
