Boy, did she hit the ceiling when I said that. I know I shouldn't've said it, and I probably wouldn't've ordinarily, but she was depressing the hell out of me. Usually I never say crude things like that to girls. Boy, did she hit the ceiling. I apologized like a madman, but she wouldn't accept my apology. She was even crying.
You give me a royal pain in the ass, if you want to know the truth
Why not? Why the hell not?
C'mon, let's get outa here,
I can go home by myself, thank you. If you think I'd let you take me home, you're mad. No boy ever said that to me in my entire life.
The terrible part, though, is that I meant it when I asked her. That's the terrible part. I swear to God I'm a madman.
You're sorry. You're sorry. That's very funny,
I WAS way early when I got there, so I just sat down on one of those leather couches right near the clock in the lobby and watched girls.... girls that looked like swell girls, girls that looked like they’d be bitches if you knew them. It was really nice sightseeing, if you know what I mean. In a way, it was sort of depressing, too, because you kept wondering what the hell would happen to all of them.
You figured most of them would probably marry dopey guys. Guys that always talk about how many miles they get to a gallon in their cars. Guys that get sore and childish as hell if you beat them at golf, or even just some stupid game like ping-pong. Guys that are very mean. Guys that never read books. Guys that are very boring.
Holden! It's marvelous to see you! It's been ages.
I felt like marrying her the minute I saw her. I’m crazy. I didn’t even like her much, and yet all of a sudden I felt like I was in love with her and wanted to marry her. I swear to god i'm crazy. I admit it.
She looked terrific. She really did.
Finally, old sally started coming up the stairs, and I started down to meet her. She had on a black coat and sort of a black beret.
The show wasn't as bad as some I've seen. It was on the crappy side, though. It was about five hundred thousand years in the life of this old couple. It starts out when they're young and all...
My Parents don't want me marrying you.
I couldn't get very interested. i mean i didn't care too much when anybody died or anything. They were all just a bunch of actors.
I must go to war...
At the end of the first act we went out with all the other jerks for a cigarette. What a deal that was. You never saw so many phonies in all your life, everybody smoking their ears off and talking about the play so that everybody could hear and know how sharp they were.
Why don't you go on over and give him a big soul kiss, if you know him? He'll enjoy it.
Hi, my name is George something.
I know that boy from somewhere
I sort of hated old Sally by the time we got in the cab, after listening to that phony Andover bastard for about ten hours. I was all set to take her home and all...
Sure. if you want to.
I have a marvelous idea! Let's go ice skating at Radio City!
That's why she was so hot to go. She wanted to see herself in one of those little skirts that just come down over their butt and all.
