The Goodbye Girl video

from 1977 movie with Richard Dreyfuss as Elliot Garfield and Marsha Mason as Paula McFadden. Quotes
This is a sleeping child. Kiss her goodnight and come up to the roof for private party! Dress formal.
Paula McFadden: Elliot? Are you up here? Say something. I don't like this.
Elliot Garfield: I said it was formal, kid! Party's got to be over by 9:00 a.m. Otherwise, it's another $5 for the suit. Don't panic! Even Ginger was nervous the first time she danced with me.
Elliot Garfield (singing): How about you? I like a Gershwin tune. How about you? I like the fireplace when the lights are low. I like potato chips, moonlight and motor trips. How about you?
Elliot Garfield: What are you crying about?
Paula McFadden: So kill me... I'm a sucker for romance.
Elliot Garfield: Elliot Garfield is a many-faceted individual. I got a job. A real acting job.
Paula McFadden: You did? Where?
Elliot Garfield: The Inventory. It's an improvisational group on Charles St. They saw Richard III. They said if I could do that, I could do anything!
Paula McFadden: Don't let it rain.
Elliot Garfield: Don't worry about it. The suit's too big for me anyway. I auditioned for them today. It's improvisation, you understand. Now, very difficult but I auditioned with this very talented girl, Linda...

  Paula McFadden: Is she pretty?
Elliot Garfield: No, very unpretty. Very ugly. Unpug-nosed. I played Abraham Lincoln. Mary Todd Lincoln's out of town. General Grant takes me to a cathouse. We're all tryin' to act very dignified...
Paula McFadden: Don't stop, I never danced in the rain!
