Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): I don’t want to go to Brooklyn. You can’t make me. I don’t want to go to Brooklyn.
Bus Driver: None of us want to, bud, but we all gotta go sooner or later.


Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Do you remember you once told me you wouldn’t be found dead in Brooklyn?

Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): You’re very modest, aren’t you?
Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Yes, I guess, I am.
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): That’s odd. If I had a mind like yours; in fact, if I had any mind at all; I’d be a brazen hussy! Ha-ha-ha.
Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Oh! Ha-ha-ha
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): There! I bet that’s the first time you’ve laughed since you’ve read Professor Zimmel’s inaccuracies of the Phoenician wars. Ha-ha-ha

Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): I enjoy it here very much … uh, I love the smell of leather bindings.


Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): [Talking on the phone] But, I just have to talk to the District Attorney about a young man he arrested. He’s not really out of his mind. I upset him because he’s not used to girls.

Policeman in Park: I’ll show you an experiment, Einstein!


Buzzy’s Ghost (Danny Kaye): As the little Eskimo girl says, it takes me a little while to get me to warm up.


Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): Edwin, do you always wear your hair parted in the middle?
Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Yes, why?
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): Why, I never saw anybody look good with their hair that way, except Hedy Lamarr.


Chimp: Mr. Bellew, Can I have your autograph, please, for the guys in my sorority?
Buzzy’s Ghost (Danny Kaye): Why, certainly, I’m an old Vassar man, myself.


Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): I want to explain about last night.
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): Well, it better be good. Making me wait hours for potato salad and telephoning me and barking like a dog, meowing like a cat and hooting like an owl.


Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Ellen.
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): You’ve got a nerve, hanging around here. You just got me fired!
Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): I’m sorry, but, I must resort to force.
Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): Oh, now you’re a cave man!
Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Well, the Neanderthal Man had his merits.


Ellen Shanley (Virginia Mayo): You’re nutty as a fruitcake!


District Attorney: Calm down, Mr. Bellew. You’re as safe as a church.

Edwin Dingle (Danny Kaye): Buster!
