His Girl Friday | January 19, 2010

“I thought you outta know that the governor didn’t sign that reprieve.”


“And tomorrow morning, Earl Williams dies, makes a sucker out of it…

“Well, what are you going to do about it?”

“Get the governor on the phone.”

“I can’t.”

“Why not?”

“Can’t locate him.  He’s out fishing.”

“How many places to fish are there?”

“Well, at least two, the Atlantic and Pacific.”

“What I came up here to tell you is that you must stop phoning me a dozen times a day, sending me twenty telegrams.”

“I write a beautiful telegram, don’t I? Everbody says so.”

“Are you going to listen to what I have to say?”

“Look, look, what’s the use of fighting, Hildy.  I’ll tell you what you do.  You come back to work on the paper and if we find we can’t get along in a friendly fashion, we’ll get married again.”

-Charles Lederer, Screenplay
