Olive 'Ollie' Frey: I thought it made men happy at their work to see a pretty woman about?

Baron Josef von Ullrich: Miss Frey, you're much too pretty to be caged in a bank.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Can I help it if I'm pretty?

Baron Josef von Ullrich: No woman should look pretty who works in a bank. It disturbs the bankers. Takes the eyes of the tellers away from the bills and currency. The clerks become confused with their columns. It's dangerous. Invites disaster.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Twenty-one.

Baron Josef von Ullrich: Engaged?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Not yet.

Count Von Tolheim: A sweetheart?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Oh, no!

Baron Josef von Ullrich: Poor child. Twenty-one and and no sweetheart? Addicted to "Love at Dawn" perfume. Smartly dressed. Silk stockings over perfect legs. An exquisite pair of shoulders. In short, a very distracting young woman.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: [giggles] Oh, Baron!

Baron Josef von Ullrich: Miss Frey, you'll please report yourself to the head of the Personnel Department.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: What for?

Baron Josef von Ullrich: To tell the manager that you are no longer employed here. Your career as a woman - is too promising for me to wreck.

Count Von Tolheim: Tell me, tell me... Did you meet many beautiful ladies in America, eh?

Baron Josef von Ullrich: No. I didn't speak to a woman while I was gone, unless it was someone's secretary. When I'm on business, I work. When I make love, I keep my mind on it. But both together? Never!

Count Von Tolheim: [Speaking to the Baron] Well, I'll be running along. I never keep a man away from his work. It's a vice I never practice myself, but I'm very liberal-minded towards those who are addicted to it.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: What a child you are! Not to know that the minute a man is told he can't see a woman, he lets nothing keep him from her. Tonight, you turned me into a sort of a forbidden fruit. And you remember what happened to Adam?

Susie Sachs: Yes, he got mixed up with a snake.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Well, you've thrown him right into a snake's arms.

Susie Sachs: How vulgar you are!

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: You think it's vulgar to be in a man's arms? If it is, I hope I never get refined.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Since you're tossing around bouquets, I'll hand you one. You're a very pretty girl yourself. Quite a decent figure. Really, a sweet little shape. But, it's no use to you. You don't know what to do with it.

Susie Sachs: What do you mean by that?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: I mean you don't know how to make men realize you have "it". Your one ambition is to be a perfect machine. But, you've never learned how to be a woman.

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Don't you think his heart beats faster when I leaned against him by accident.

Susie Sachs: By accident?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: By intentional accident. And how men love it! It's like this. A quick movement! Your hand touches his for a breathtaking second. You pull away and say naively, "Oh, pardon me." He murmurs something.

Susie Sachs: I wonder...

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: The air is charged with electricity! He struggles for his self-control. Just as he almost has it...

Susie Sachs: Yes?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: You start all over again and then his arms begin to ache to hold you. They steal around and if you're a smart girl you say, "Oh, no, you mustn't."

Susie Sachs: And then he stops?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Stops? Of course he doesn't stop. He goes on! He pulls you closer. You struggle! But, not much.

Susie Sachs: What does he say?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: Oh, it doesn't matter. You don't care! You're head begins to whirl. A delicious faintness sweeps over you. His eyes burn into yours.

Susie Sachs: His eyes!

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: His mouth comes closer. You are limp. You resist no more. Your eyelashes flutter down. You can see no longer. All you know is the wonderful strength of his embrace!

Susie Sachs: And then?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: He kisses you!

Susie Sachs: And then?

Olive 'Ollie' Frey: And then - say, just how far do you want me to go?

Baron Josef von Ullrich: Susie, you're wonderful!

Susie Sachs: When I love a man, he must ache and long and burn for me. He must be hungry and thirsty forever, unless I came along. I, Susie Sachs. No other woman on earth must do. That's the sort of love I want!
