Quotes from

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!

Mrs. Caroline Drew: Of all things, an actress! Allen, how could you? You know how I hate the theater and all it stands for.
Allen Drew: I love her, and we're going to be married.
Mrs. Caroline Drew: Married? Allen, you can't. I won't let you ruin your life!
Allen Drew: My mind is made up, Aunt Caroline.
Mrs. Caroline Drew: You're an ungrateful, disobedient, shameless boy, and as long as you live under this roof, I must insist that you observe my wishes.
Allen Drew: In that case, I'll have to look for another place to stay.

Emery T. Hawkins: Mr. Drew, you told us he would pay us our money.
Allen Drew: Yes, of course. Pay them, Professor.
Prof. Eustace Appleby: Well, I, uh, I don't like their attitude, Allen. I've never heard of people doing business in this way.
Allen Drew: Why argue? Pay them and get it over with.
Prof. Eustace Appleby: Well, the truth is, I find myself a little short.
Allen Drew: Short? How much?
Prof. Eustace Appleby: Well, around eight hundred dollars.
Allen Drew: But that's all the money I gave you!
Prof. Eustace Appleby: It wasn't my fault, Allen. I was cheated!
Allen Drew: That's all the money I had! I was stupid enough to trust a scoundrel like you, you blundering old fool!
