It Happened One Night (1934) Poster

Walter Connolly: Andrews

Quotes 

  • Alexander Andrews : Oh, er, do you mind if I ask you a question, frankly? Do you love my daughter?

    Peter Warne : Any guy that'd fall in love with your daughter ought to have his head examined.

    Alexander Andrews : Now that's an evasion!

    Peter Warne : She picked herself a perfect running mate - King Westley - the pill of the century! What she needs is a guy that'd take a sock at her once a day, whether it's coming to her or not. If you had half the brains you're supposed to have, you'd done it yourself, long ago.

    Alexander Andrews : Do you love her?

    Peter Warne : A normal human being couldn't live under the same roof with her without going nutty! She's my idea of nothing!

    Alexander Andrews : I asked you a simple question! Do you love her?

    Peter Warne : YES! But don't hold that against me, I'm a little screwy myself!

  • Alexander Andrews : What's the matter, child? Aren't you happy?

    [Ellie clutches her father, sobbing] 

    Alexander Andrews : I thought so. I knew there was something on your mind. There, there, there now. What's the matter? You haven't fallen in love with someone else, have you? Have you?

    [Ellie continues crying] 

    Alexander Andrews : I haven't seen you cry since you were a baby. This must be serious. Where'd you meet him?

    Ellie Andrews : On the road.

    Alexander Andrews : Now, don't tell me you've fallen in love with a bus driver.

  • Ellie Andrews : Outside of the fact that you don't like him you haven't got a thing against King.

    Alexander Andrews : He's a fake, Ellie.

    Ellie Andrews : He's one of the best flyers in the country.

    Alexander Andrews : He's no good and you know it. You married him only because I told you not to.

    Ellie Andrews : You've been telling me what not to do ever since I can remember.

    Alexander Andrews : That's because you've always been a stubborn idiot,

    Ellie Andrews : I come from a long line of stubborn idiots!

  • [as he walks Ellie down the aisle, Mr. Andrews talks to her] 

    Alexander Andrews : You're a sucker to go through with this. That guy Warne is OK. He didn't want the reward. All he asked for was $39.60, what he spent on you. Said it was a matter of principle. You took him for a ride. He loves you, Ellie. He told me so. You don't want to be married to a mug like Westley; I can buy him off for a pot of gold. And you can make an old man happy and you won't do so bad for yourself. If you change your mind, your car's waiting at the back gate.

  • Alexander Andrews : [Alexander has figured out Ellie is in love with another man]  Who is he?

    Ellie Andrews : I don't know very much about him, except that I love him.

    Alexander Andrews : Well, if it's as serious as all that, we'll move Heaven and Earth to...

    Ellie Andrews : No, it's no use! He despises me.

    Alexander Andrews : Oh, come now.

    Ellie Andrews : Yes, he does! He despises everything about me. He says that I'm spoiled and selfish and pampered and thoroughly insincere.

    Alexander Andrews : Oh, ho, ridiculous!

    Ellie Andrews : He doesn't think so much of you, either.

    Alexander Andrews : Well, I...

    Ellie Andrews : And he blames you for everything that's wrong with me. He says you, you raised me stupidly.

    Alexander Andrews : [sarcastically]  Well now, that's a fine man to fall in love with.

    Ellie Andrews : Oh, he's marvelous!

  • Alexander Andrews : Don't fall out of any windows!

  • King Westley : [after Ellie runs away from their wedding]  What happened?

    Alexander Andrews : I haven't the slightest idea.
