You'd better tell me.
GEORGE: I love you. I've loved you since the first moment I saw you. I guess maybe I even loved you before I saw you.
ANGELA: And you're the fellow that wondered why I invited you here tonight. I tell you why. I love you, too! It scares me. But it is a wonderful feeling.
GEORGE: It's wonderful when you're here.

GEORGE EASTMAN: Good evening, sir.
CHARLES EASTMAN: Hi, George. This is my wife. My daughter, Marcia. My son, Earl. George Eastman.
HANNAH EASTMAN: Sit down, George.
CHARLES: Like a cocktail, a drink?
GEORGE EASTMAN: No, thank you.
HANNAH: My husband says he met you in Chicago at a hotel.
GEORGE EASTMAN: That's right.
HANNAH: You must have left very suddenly.
GEORGE: Well, you see, I quit my job. Mr Eastman was good enough to say that if I came through here, he might find some place for me.
CHARLES: I think we can work something out. What do you think, Earl?
EARL EASTMAN: Done any bookkeeping? Typewriting? Stenography?
CHARLES: You see Earl in the morning.
GEORGE: Thank you, sir. That's very kind of you.
|I'm in the same boat as you||
ALICE TRIPP: If the girls saw me, they'd say I was making up to the boss's nephew.
GEORGE EASTMAN: That's silly. I'm in the same boat as you.
ALICE: An Eastman isn't in the same boat with anyone.
GEORGE EASTMAN: I work along with you, don't I?
ALICE: Sure. They'll move you to a better job, and you'll be in the front office. That's the last we'll see of Mr George Eastman.
GEORGE: Phoning me like that with my whole family listening in?
ALICE: You weren't staying with your family. You were staying with Angela Vickers. I'm through waiting for you. You're gonna marry me tomorrow, or I'll tell the newspapers everything!
GEORGE: Don't talk like that.
|You're gonna marry me tomorrow||
ANTHONY VICKERS: Talk of marriage aside, we know almost nothing about your background.
GEORGE EASTMAN: There's not much to know. What there is, I've wanted to tell you myself. We were very poor people. I only went to school till I was 13 years old. We didn't ever have any money for anything, so I left home. I was gonna do something about it. I took any job. Busboy, elevator operator, caddie. I had no training, no education. Then I came here, went to work for my uncle. That's my background, Mr Vickers. But I love Angela more than anything in the world. I'd do anything to make her happy. Even if it's right that I shouldn't see her any more.
ANTHONY: Easy, boy. Forthrightness is a prime virtue. I admire your frankness.
ANGELA VICKERS: I should apologise for eavesdropping, but I'm glad I listened. Does that answer all your questions?
ANTHONY: All I ask is that you two don't do anything hasty.
|Don't do anything hasty||
CHARLES EASTMAN: Not much education, but ambitious. And he looks amazingly like Earl.
EARL EASTMAN: What's he do?
CHARLES: Hotel bellhop.
EARL: I always wanted to look like a bellhop!
HANNAH EASTMAN: Why bring him on here?
CHARLES: There's always a place at the plant.
FRANK MARLOWE: That night when you left the party at the house at Bride's Lake to meet Alice Tripp in the bus station do you remember leaving anything behind you?
GEORGE EASTMAN: No, I don't. I don't remember leaving anything.
FRANK MARLOWE: I'm referring to your heart! You left behind the girl you loved, and with her your hopes, your ambitions, your dreams.
|You left behind the girl you loved||
GEORGE EASTMAN: Darling, I love you so much, so very much.
ANGELA VICKERS: Just think of it. We'll go swimming together, lie in the sun together, go horseback riding through the pine woods. I'll make breakfast for you every morning, and you can sleep late. I'll bring it in to you in your room.
GEORGE: And you love me.
ANGELA VICKERS: All the same, I'll go on loving you for as long as I live.
GEORGE EASTMAN: Love me for the time I have left, then forget me.
ANGELA: Goodbye, George. It seems like we always spend the best part of our time saying goodbye
