“Singin’ In the Rain”
Cosmo Brown: Why bother to shoot this film? Why not release the old one under a new title? You’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.
Don Lockwood: Hey, what’d you say that for?
Cosmo Brown: What’s the matter?
Don Lockwood: That’s what that Kathy Selden said to me that night.
Cosmo Brown: That’s three weeks ago… you still thinking about that?
Don Lockwood: I can’t get her out of my mind.
Cosmo Brown: How could you? She’s the first dame who hasn’t fallen for your line since you were four.
Don Lockwood: What’s the matter with that girl? Can’t she take a gentle hint?
Cosmo Brown: Well, haven’t ya heard? She’s irresistible – told me so herself.
