Quotes from

Dimples: Mrs. Drew, do you still think I'm worth five thousand dollars?
Mrs. Caroline Drew: You're worth ever so much more, darling.
Dimples: And do you still want me to come and live with you?
Mrs. Caroline Drew: I'd like nothing more in the world.
Dimples: All right, I'll come. Do you have the five thousand dollars with you?


Cleo Marsh: But I thought you had money, Allen.
Allen Drew: I did. Enough, anyway. I guess I didn't take care of it very well.
Cleo Marsh: Well, what are you going to do now?
Allen Drew: I suppose I could get a job somewhere, and maybe save up enough money to do the show. That needn't change our plans about marriage any, Cleo. I don't suppose money is very important to people who are really in love.
Cleo Marsh: You can say that because you've always had money.
Allen Drew: Perhaps.
Cleo Marsh: I'm afraid this changes everything.
Allen Drew: Then you're not really in love with me.


Dimples: What's the matter?
Prof. Eustace Appleby: Everything's all right, dear. I just want to have a talk with these gentlemen here for a few minutes.
Policeman: Never mind that! He's under arrest for stealing a thousand dollars.
Prof. Eustace Appleby: But I didn't take the money for myself. I took it to pay Allen back. Really.
Policeman: Oh, come on!
Dimples: You leave him alone! He didn't steal anything from you!
Mrs. Caroline Drew: I'm sorry, darling, but you're better off without him.
Allen Drew: You'd better hurry, Dimples. It's almost time for the last act.
Dimples: No! I'm going to jail with the Professor!
