00:00:06There yoare.
00:00:07A seat for the sweet.
00:00:10Jack, you are so gallant.
00:00:13Well, I've always felt that women should be looked up to, put on a pedestal.
00:00:17Treated with the utmost devotion and respect.
00:00:19Hi, jack, missed you at mud wrestling this week.
00:00:23I was trying to get those women out of the mud and back on the pedestal.
00:00:29Hi, lily.
00:00:30Uh, I guess we'll order now.
00:00:34I'm sorry, arabella, you first.
00:00:36Yes, thank you.
00:00:37I'll have a glass of white wine and a dinner salad.
00:00:41Yeah, I'll take a cheeseburger and a beer.
00:00:43Oh, excellent choice.
00:00:45Thank you.
00:00:45You want to hurry that up, lily?
00:00:47All right.
00:00:48I'll be right back.
00:00:49I know how much you miss me.
00:00:52That lily, she's a great kidder.
00:00:55Well, maybe you'd rather be with lily.
00:00:59I saw the way you were looking at her.
00:01:01I may have been looking ather but I was thinking about you.
00:01:07How sweet.
00:01:11Would you excuse me?
00:01:13I've got to make a call.
00:01:14 it's right up there over to your left.
00:01:18You can't miss it.
00:01:19Watch out for the step.
00:01:21I'm sorry.
00:01:26I'll save it for later.
00:01:29Oh, gosh.
00:01:32Boy, what a night.
00:01:33My feet are killing me.
00:01:34Why don't you take a break?
00:01:36Ooh, thanks, I will.
00:01:38Lily, come on, don't do that.
00:01:40I don't have any change.
00:01:43Still thinking about me?
00:01:45I just borrowed his lap for a second.
00:01:48Well, you can just keep his lap and the rest of him, too.
00:01:52Y'all come back now, you hear?
00:02:02Are you still reading that magazine?
00:02:06Terri, this is such trash.
00:02:08Look at this.
00:02:09" I can't believe you could be taken in by ..
00:02:16Move over.
00:02:20" yeah.
00:02:23"Show a man you're interested in him .." (gasping) Hey, I do that.
00:02:33I do, too.
00:02:37But I don't dothat.
00:02:39I don't even know what that is.
00:02:44(gasping) Oh, my. wow.
00:02:46Okay. that's it.
00:02:47I've had quite enough.
00:02:48I don't think we should leave this sort of magazine laying around our house.
00:02:52Janet, this magazine just speaks about things frankly and openly.
00:02:55There's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
00:02:58(doorbell rings) There's no sense in embarrassing ourselves, though.
00:03:06Hi, lar.
00:03:07Come on in.
00:03:07Terri and I were just in here hanging around doing nothing.
00:03:11Nothing, nothing. bored, bored.
00:03:13Jack around?
00:03:14Oh. oh, no.
00:03:14No. oh, he's still out with scarlett o'hara.
00:03:23(moaning) Jack?
00:03:28Are you all right?
00:03:31It's over.
00:03:31It's all over between us.
00:03:34Oh, what happened, honey?
00:03:35Arabella caught lily sitting in my lap.
00:03:39Well, lily was just kidding around but arabella thought I was coming on to her.
00:03:47(groaning) Jack, instead of moaning and groaning why don't you just tell her that it was just a little joke?
00:03:55I tried calling her, but she won't even talk to me.
00:03:58Oh. well, okay.
00:03:59You know how you're always saying she's an old-fashioned southern belle?
00:04:04Why don't you use some old-fashioned southern methods?
00:04:06Just keep pouring those mint juleps down her.
00:04:11What are you thinking?
00:04:12Thanks, terri.
00:04:13I had something in mind, like jack would do something gallant, or romantic.
00:04:18Like maybe writing her a beautiful love letter.
00:04:21Oh, serenade her under the window.
00:04:24Oh, that's romantic.
00:04:25Then once she's under your spell you climb up to her window and ask her to dinner.
00:04:29Janet: No, no, no.
00:04:30He doesn't ask her he hands her a very formal invitation.
00:04:34It's got his name up here and his address.
00:04:36That way she'll think he spent a whole lot of time preparing.
00:04:39That's a nice touch, janet.
00:04:41Oh, it's perfect, it's perfect.
00:04:43Serenade her?

00:16:52Hi, sug.
00:16:53Arabella, hi.
00:16:55Darling, I just had to come and see you.
00:16:58It was so unfair of me to suspect you of wanting any other woman.
00:17:07Well! pick my peas.
00:17:12Who's she?
00:17:14I don't know.
00:17:15I mean, no, I mean, uh arabella, this is bernice.
00:17:19Would you excuse us?
00:17:21Uh, we have to talk.
00:17:23Oh,certainement, my love.
00:17:30This is going to sound crazy but, see, I wanted to try to win you back so I went to your place last night to serenade you.
00:17:37To serenade me!
00:17:38Oh, well, how romantic!
00:17:40It would have been, if it were you but it washer so, thinking she was you, I invited her to dinner.
00:17:46I-i-i didn't know how to tell her the truth.
00:17:48You don't believe a word I'm saying, do you?
00:17:51Well, on the contrary, jack.
00:17:53I'm deeply moved.
00:17:56You are?
00:17:56I never knew you were that much of a gentleman.
00:18:04Now, you just get rid of her while I go powder my nose.
00:18:07.. get-get rid of her?
00:18:09I can't do that.
00:18:10Oh, my, what a pity.
00:18:12I was going to show you a game called the burning of atlanta.
00:18:21The burning of atlanta?
00:18:24Yes, and it getsveryhot.
00:18:29She'll be gone in two seconds.
00:18:52Listen, about all this-- I really have to apologize.
00:18:56No! no, no, you don't.
00:18:58Oh, jack, most other men wouldn't think they had to apologize.
00:19:02I guess that's what I love about you.
00:19:05You are so sweet.
00:19:06You're so sensitive.
00:19:10No, I'm not.
00:19:11No, no. that was just a lie.
00:19:13It's just a front I put up to get what i want because inside I'm a seething, throbbing bucket of lust!
00:19:20I'm not good enough to be in the same room with you.
00:19:24I'm filth!
00:19:28Oh, jack!
00:19:35Bernice, didn't you hear me?
00:19:37I'm no good.
00:19:38I know but your honesty really turns me on!
00:19:45What have we here?
00:19:47Arabella, this is not how it looks.
00:19:49Oh, honey, it's exactly how it looks.
00:19:51She threw herself at you.
00:19:54Honey, this whole incident it was just a dreadful mistake.
00:19:58You see, jack just didn't have the heart to tell you.
00:20:04He was just feeling sorry for you.
00:20:11Maybe I'd better just leave.
00:20:14No, wait a minute.
00:20:15Arabella, I think it's time you knew what really happened.
00:20:19I already do.
00:20:20No, you don't.
00:20:22I saw bernice across a crowded room and I felt that certain something.
00:20:30Ihadto know her so I followed her home and I poured out my heart to her in song.
00:20:36He sang "you are so beautiful" to me.
00:20:40You're kidding.
00:20:43Now, if you'll excuse us we have a date.
00:20:58Well, you know, in that case, jack tripper I don't ever want to see you again.
00:21:03Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
00:21:16Oh, jack.
00:21:18Jack, nobody ever made me feel this special before.
00:21:22You make me feel good, too.
00:21:26.. you know what you said about, about seeing me across a crowded room?
00:21:34Thank you for that wonderful lie.

00:24:36Oh, that's great.
00:24:37So, how was the movie?
