The Great Ziegfeld (1936)
Fanny Brice: Fannie Brice
Fanny Brice : Tell Mr Ziegfeld, I'm not in and if I was in, I wouldn't see him and if I did see him, tell him, I wouldn't buy a thing.
Fanny Brice : If I can give Belasco four dollars for silk stockings made of cotton, I can give Ziegfeld a little more for a mink coat made of skunk.
Fanny Brice : Get me some viskey!
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : [Scolding the wardrobe man for having dressed Miss Brice in an inappropriately showy costume] How do you expect Miss Brice to sing a sad song about her man, dressed up like a nightingale? I find personalities, and you try to destroy them. I didn't engage Miss Brice as a showgirl.
Clarence : [after having altered Miss Brice's costume to the bare minimum] Is that all right, Mr. Ziegfeld?
Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. : Well, it's all right for now. Tomorrow, get her another outfit. And don't make it, buy it. Go to a second-hand store and get her an old dress. She's supposed to be a, an apache, a poor French girl, an urchin!
Clarence : [meekly] Yes, sir.
Fanny Brice : [looking disappointed] So, to work for Mr. Ziegfeld, I gotta' be an urchin. Even in burlesque I was middle class.
Fanny Brice : [Admiring herself, and her showy costume, in the mirror] Look at ya'. You're workin' for Mr. Ziegfeld now, and ya' look like a million dollars. For the first time in your life, you're class, ya' mug.
