Don Hewes[edit]

  • Why didn't you tell me I was in love with you?

Jonathan Harrow III[edit]

  • [Lovingly to Hannah] Do you know that scientists say that people fall in love quickest during a rainstorm? I can prove that. Because that's when I fell in love with you.

Dialogue[edit]

Don Hewes: Miss Brown, what idiot ever told you you were a dancer?
Hannah Brown: You did.

Hannah Brown: [her eyes are closed] What color are my eyes?
Don Hewes: [kissing her, causing her to open her eyes in surprise] Brown.

Don Hewes: A girl dancer has to be exotic; she has to be - a peach.
Hannah Brown: I suppose I'm a lemon!

[the bartender hands Don his drink]
Don Hewes: Can you drown a brunette in this?
Mike the Bartender: How tall is she?
Don Hewes: Five foot six.
Mike the Bartender: [filling the glass a little more] Try this.

Sam: How did the act go, Mr. Hewes?
Don Hewes: One bow.
Sam: Too bad.
Don Hewes: Tomorrow we'd better get some dogs in the act.

Hannah Brown: Was I too terrible?
Don Hewes: No. No.
Hannah Brown: I've never really danced before.
Don Hewes: You're going to be fine.
Hannah Brown: Mr. Hewes, Mr. Hewes... You know you don't have to go on with this.
Don Hewes: Now look...
Hannah Brown: No, I mean it. You're the most wonderful dancer I've ever seen. You could get anyone to dance with you. You could get the very best.
Don Hewes: I don't want the very best. I want you.

Mike the Bartender: What are you doing here by yourself?
Hannah Brown: Oh, I don't know. I just wanted to get away for awhile.
Mike the Bartender: Sure. Well, if there's anything I can do, breaking one's neck or anything like that, just say the word.
Hannah Brown: No thanks, Mike. There isn't anything anyone can do.
Mike the Bartender: Ah, don't say that. No man is that important. Plenty of fish left in the sea. You know it's always darkest just...
Hannah Brown: Oh, Mike. I don't think you have a motto for my kind of problem.

Jonathan Harrow III: He seems under the impression that you aren't too fond of him.
Hannah Brown: But I am! Terribly!
Jonathan Harrow III: Well, I'm afraid it's a little late.
Hannah Brown: A little late? Little late? Well, that can't be! What'll I do?
Jonathan Harrow III: Well, if I loved someone, I'd find a way to let them know it.
Hannah Brown: Well, it's different with a man.
Jonathan Harrow III: Why?
Hannah Brown: I don't know. It just is, that's all. It's easier.
