Roman Holiday (1953)
Gregory Peck: Joe Bradley
Reporter : And what, in the opinion of Your Highness, is the outlook for friendship among nations?
Princess Ann : I have every faith in it... as I have faith in relations between people.
Joe Bradley : May I say, speaking for my own... press service: we believe Your Highness's faith will not be unjustified.
Princess Ann : I am so glad to hear you say it.
Another reporter : Which of the cities visited did Your Highness enjoy the most?
General Provno : [prompting] Each, in its own way...
Princess Ann : Each, in its own way, was unforgettable. It would be difficult to - Rome! By all means, Rome. I will cherish my visit here in memory as long as I live.
Princess Ann : I have to leave you now. I'm going to that corner there and turn. You must stay in the car and drive away. Promise not to watch me go beyond the corner. Just drive away and leave me as I leave you.
Joe Bradley : All right.
Princess Ann : I don't know how to say goodbye. I can't think of any words.
Joe Bradley : Don't try.
Princess Ann : [as Ann and Joe dance] Hello.
Joe Bradley : Hello.
Princess Ann : Mr. Bradley, if you don't mind my saying so, I think you are a ringer.
Joe Bradley : Wha - oh, thanks very much.
Princess Ann : You spent the whole day doing things I've always wanted to. Why?
Joe Bradley : I don't know. Seemed the thing to do.
Joe Bradley : Tell you what. Why don't we do all those things, together?
Princess Ann : But don't you have to work?
Joe Bradley : Work? No. Today's gonna be a holiday.
Princess Ann : But you want to do a lot of silly things?
Joe Bradley : [He takes her hand] ... First wish? One sidewalk cafe, comin' right up. I know just the place. Rocca's.
Princess Ann : Have I been here all night, alone?
Joe Bradley : If you don't count me, yes.
Princess Ann : So I've spent the night here - with you?
Joe Bradley : Well now, I-I don't know that I'd use those words exactly, but uh, from a certain angle, yes.
Princess Ann : [beaming with a smile] How do you do?
Joe Bradley : How do you do?
Princess Ann : And you are - ?
Joe Bradley : Bradley, Joe Bradley.
Princess Ann : Delighted.
Joe Bradley : You don't know how delighted I am to meet you.
Princess Ann : You may sit down.
Joe Bradley : [sitting on the bed] Thank you very much. What's your name?
Princess Ann : You may call me Anya.
Irving Radovich : Hey, er, anybody ever tell you you're a dead ringer for...
[Joe kicks him under the table]
Irving Radovich : Ow! Well, I guess I'll be going!
Joe Bradley : Oh, don't do a thing like that, Irving. Sit down, join us, join us.
Irving Radovich : Well, just till Francesca gets here.
Princess Ann : Tell me, Mr. Radovich, what is a ringer?
Joe Bradley : Oh. Er, it's an American term, and it means anybody who has a great deal of charm.
Princess Ann : Oh. Thank you.
Irving Radovich : [confused] You're welcome.
Joe Bradley : [after swimming ashore] All right?
Princess Ann : Fine. How are you?
Joe Bradley : Oh, fine!
Joe Bradley : Say, you know, you were great back there.
Princess Ann : You weren't so bad yourself.
Joe Bradley : [kisses her] Well... I guess we'd better get Irving's car and get out of here.
Joe Bradley : How much would a real interview with this dame be worth?
Mr. Hennessey : Are you referring to Her Highness?
Joe Bradley : I'm not referring to Annie Oakley, Dorothy Lamour, or Madame... How much?
Mr. Hennessey : What do you care? You've got about as much chance...
Joe Bradley : I know, but if I did? How much would it be worth?
Mr. Hennessey : Oh, just a plain talk on world issues, it would probably be worth two hundred and fifty. Her views on clothes, of course, would be worth a lot more, maybe a thousand... dollars.
Joe Bradley : I'm talking about her views on everything!... The private and secret longings of a Princess. Her innermost thoughts as revealed to your own correspondent in a private, personal, exclusive interview.
[His boss' mouth drops, awe-struck by the thought]
Joe Bradley : Can't use it, huh? I didn't think you'd like it.
Mr. Hennessey : Come here! Love angle too, I suppose.
Joe Bradley : Practically all love angle.
Mr. Hennessey : With pictures.
Joe Bradley : Could be. How much?
Mr. Hennessey : That particular story will be worth five grand to any news service...
Joe Bradley : ...You said five grand? I want you to shake on that.
Mr. Hennessey : In view of the fact that our Highness was taken violently ill at three o'clock this morning, put to bed with a high fever, and has ordered all her appointments for the day cancelled in toto...
Joe Bradley : That's certainly pretty hard to swallow.
Mr. Hennessey : In view of the fact that you just left her, of course.
Joe Bradley : Would you like a cup of coffee?
Princess Ann : What time is it?
Joe Bradley : About one thirty.
Princess Ann : One thirty! I must get dressed and go!
Joe Bradley : *Why*. What's your hurry? There's lots of time.
Princess Ann : No, there isn't, and I've been quite enough trouble to you as it is.
Joe Bradley : Trouble?... You're not what I'd call trouble.
Princess Ann : [she smiles] I'm not?
Joe Bradley : I'll run a bath for you.
