The Chapman Report (1962)
Glynis Johns: Teresa Harnish
Teresa Harnish : What a magnificent animal - All the time, because - Oh, magnificent! Well, look at him showing off his muscles! - All the time, because the dance was long - Look at those long legs! I wonder what sort of girl goes out with him? - I have been faithful to thee - I suspect one of those common girls you see riding on the surf boards. - In my fashion, I have been faithful to thee - You know, he could be quite attractive. He's the kind of man, who needs, who needs a woman to help him. A woman whose better than he is. A woman with taste. A woman whose aware of the beauty. Not me, but, somebody, like me.
Teresa Harnish : Ever since the first day I saw you at the beach, in your natural element, I observed the grace of your body and the freedom of your limbs, I've wanted to sketch you as a Greek Olympic hero. Have you ever seen that classical statue of the discus thrower?
Ed Kraski : No.
Teresa Harnish : Well, inspired by your body, I feel that I can surpass Myron the Greek. Assume the position.
Teresa Harnish : You know, the discus throwers were in the nude, like all the Greek Olympians. And that is how I'd like you to pose.
Ed Kraski : With nuthin' on?
Teresa Harnish : In the classical tradition. Now, if you'll get disrobed, I'll be getting ready.
Ed Kraski : Now, listen lady, you don't expect me to be getting rid of all of my clothes in front of a woman?
Teresa Harnish : Why, you don't settle for false modesty; after all, this is for art!
Teresa Harnish : In your profession, I suppose you must take care of your body.
Ed Kraski : Like a baby. But, a man has to have one vice.
[holds up a beer can]
Teresa Harnish : Is that your only vice?
Ed Kraski : Aw, it depends on what you call a vice.
Teresa Harnish : Oh, female companionship?
Ed Kraski : Aw, no! Not while I'm in training.
Teresa Harnish : You think that I'm too much of a lady to be one of your - well, I am a lady; but, I'm also a woman.
Teresa Harnish : I want - You to know, the first time I saw you, I fought the feeling inside of me. I knew that I was enamored of you. Foolishly, so. But, women in love are foolish. And now, I just want your love. Do you want to kiss me, Ed? Kiss me, Eddie! You might enjoy it!
Ed Kraski : Well, beat my teeth! Jackie said!
Teresa Harnish : He said what, Ed?
Ed Kraski : Why, he had a hunch!
Teresa Harnish : Yes?
Ed Kraski : He said, "Boy, there's a lot of pepper in that Tomata!"
Teresa Harnish : And do you like pepper, Ed?
Ed Kraski : I do. Are you ready?
Teresa Harnish : Oh, so ready!
Teresa Harnish : Things like this should be done - things like this should take time! You can't just toss me about like a football! I - I admire your strength and recklessness and - Ed, ouch! - Really, you must listen to reason. Things like this could be beaut - beautiful! No, Ed. Stop it! Well, for heaven's sake.
