Patty O'Neill:
Oh, c'mon. You don't want to stay up here alone.
David Slater:
Haven't the faintest intention of being alone. You decide to leave, I should probably call up a dame I know and ask her to come over.
Patty O'Neill:
Don't say "dame", it's vulgar. At least say "girl"
David Slater:
This girl *is* quite vulgar. In the sense that she is earthy and uninhibited. By common definition she is essentially a dame rather than a girl. She's a lot of fun.
Patty O'Neill:
Then why don't you ask *her* to marry you?
David Slater:
Because she'll lose all respect for me if I made such an idiotic suggestion.

Transcript:
Oh, come on.
You don't want to
stay up here alone.
I haven't the faintest intention
of being alone.
If you decide to leave,
I shall probably call up
a dame I know
and ask her to come over.
Don't say, "dame." It's vulgar.
At least say, "girl."
Well, this girl is quite vulgar.
In the sense that she's
earthy and uninhibited,
by common definition,
she's essentially a dame
rather than a girl.
She's a lot of fun.
Then why don't you ask
her to marry you?
Because she'd lose
all respect for me,
if I made such
an idiotic suggestion.
Why?
Are you reconsidering my proposal?
The offer's still open.
It's very strange.
You know,
you're really horrible.
You're shallow and cynical
and selfish and immoral
and completely worthless.
And I like you.
I like you very much.
- Enough to marry me?
- No.
But I could probably
do a lot worse...
a lot worse.
Are you rich?
I'm fairly rich.
No, let's face it...
I am rich, period.
I've never done a day's work,
and if I never do, I'll always
have a fairly large income,
even after taxes, why?
I've often wondered
what it must be like
to be even fairly rich.
So many of the girls I know
marry just for security.
It's a terrific temptation.
Do you have any idea
how much money
I have in the world
at the moment?
Yes, I believe you have
$7.43 in cash
and a bankbook that shows
no balance whatsoever.
Oh, I'm not psychic.
I looked in your purse
while you were fixing dinner.
Well, that wasn't very ethical.
Well, I never claimed
to be ethical.
You know, next tuesday,
I'm doing a television show...
maybe.
And I'll get $62.50.
And with the 7...
And with the 7 bucks I've got,
I'll have almost $70.
Once...
Once I had over $200.
For a whole week I had it.
