Pull it tighter Sue, pull it tighter, I want a waist like...
[Sue is helping Cathy get ready]
Pull it tighter Sue, pull it tighter, I want a waist like Anna Held.
If I pull it any tighter you're not going to be able to breathe.
Oh that's alright, I don't need much breath anyway, as my late friend Matty used to say, if a girl don't watch her figure the men won't.
Matty? Wasn't that the man you were going to marry?
Yes but he hung himself instead.
Oh Matty was such a card.
Well where's your new friend going to take you tonight?
To the Hauffman House for dinner, then to Tony Pastors for the vaudeville show.
That sounds like fun.
Oh yeah he's a free spender alright, a little bit older than I like them, but awfully distinguished looking, I'm moving up
[stops and breathes in slowly]
, I'm moving up honey, no girl ever hits the jackpot till after she passes 14th street.
Pull it tighter, Sue.
Pull it tighter.
I want a waist like Anna Held.
If I pull it any tighter,
you're not going to be able to breathe.
Oh. Oh, that's all right.
I don't need much breath, anyway.
As my late friend Matty used to say:
"If a girl don't watch her figure,
the men won't."
Matty. Wasn't that the man
you were going to marry?
Yes, but he hung himself instead.
Oh, Matty was such a card.
Where is your new friend
gonna take you tonight?
The Hoffman House for dinner.
And then to Tony Pastor's
for the vaudeville show.
- That sounds like fun.
- He's a free spender, all right.
Little bit older than I like them,
but awfully distinguished looking.
Is he nice?
Oh, awfully nice.
A real gentleman, except when
he's had a couple of drinks in him.
Ah, that's to be expected.
I'm moving up--
Ooh. I'm moving up in
the world, honey.
No girl ever hits the jackpot
till after she passes 14th Street.
- Ha, ha, is that how it goes?
Oh. Look at me.
Not too long ago,
I was down on Delancey Street.
And tonight I'll be right up there
among the bright lights on 23rd.
Now, when you get up there tonight,
don't drink too much.
Oh, don't worry, I won't.
He keeps trying to pour the liquor into me,
but I always manage to keep my head.
After all, now that I'm going regular
with a swell...
...I got social obligations. Ha, ha.
You know how it is when a fella--
Ah, no, of course you don't know.
You're not like me, Sue.
You never could be.
You got all the brains
and all I've got is...
...what I got.
You know, I'm surprised
you even talk to me.
That's such nonsense.
You've been so good to me.
Oh, why not?
A girl needs a friend
when she's down on her luck.
Holy smoke! Look at the time.
I've got to hurry.
Did you find a job yet?
Oh, no, not yet, but they need
a hat-check girl at the Silver Slipper...
...and I've got an appointment
with the manager tonight.
Oh, I know that fellow.
Watch out for him.
- But why? What's the matter with him?
- Oh, nothing much.
- Long as you know how to duck.
- Oh, that kind?
- Did you eat today?
- Uh-huh. I had everything I needed.
To hear you tell it.
Besides, you're behind
in your room rent.
Oh, well, Mrs. Flannigan
will wait for me.
Don't count on that.
The old buzzard
almost locked me out once.
