White Christmas (1954) Directed by Michael Curtiz
Danny Kaye as Phil Davis and Bing Crosby as Bob Wallace
Phil: You’re a miserable, lonely, unhappy man.
Bob: Oh, you’re wacky. I’m a very happy man.
Phil: Well then you’re happy for the wrong reasons and that’s the same as being lonely and miserable except it’s worse.
Bob: You know something? You’re off your nut about a mile and a half. I’ve got everything in life I want.
Phil: Oh sure, I’m off my nut a mile and a half…
Bob: At least.
Phil: …and you got everything you want.
Bob: Yes I do.
Phil: Except the most important thing.
Bob: What’s that?
Phil: A girl.
Bob: I’ll get around to that one of these days.
Phil: My dear partner, when what’s left of you gets around to what’s left to be gotten, what’s left to be gotten won’t be worth getting, whatever it is you’ve got left.
Bob: When I figure out what that means I’ll come up with a crushing reply.
