It Happened One Night

Lower the boats! Catch her!
Come on, men!
She got away, sir.
Of course, she's too smart for you.
Send a wireless
to the Lovington Detective Agency.

"Daughter escaped again.
"Watch roads,
airports and train stations in Miami."

All aboard!
Palm Beach, Savannah, Jacksonville...

...New York, Philadelphia.
We're wasting our time.
Imagine Ellie Andrews riding on a bus.

I told the old man it was bunk.
Ticket for New York, please.
- Here's your ticket.
- Thank you very much.

Thank you.
What's going on here?
I'd like to use that phone.

Go away. This is history in the making.
- What?
- There's a man biting a dog in there.

Heel, boy.
I can't stand this any longer.
In a pig's eye, you will.
Listen monkey face, when you fired me,
you fired the best news hound...

...your filthy scandal sheet ever had.
You wouldn't know a newspaper story
if it kicked you in the pants.

I got all your copy. Why didn't you tell me
you were gonna write it in Greek?

I'd start a new department.
That was free verse,
you gas house palooka.

What was free about it?
It cost this paper a gob of dough.

And it's not going to cost us any more!
Did you know he reversed the charge?
What? Why you...
When you get back to New York,
you keep far away from this office.

You're fired. You don't work here
anymore and you never will.

What'd he say?
So, you're changing your tune?
