Anna Held:
[on the phone with Ziegfeld after learning of his marriage to Billie Burke] Hello, Flo... Yes. Here's Anna... I'm so happy for you today, I could not help calling you and congratulate you... Wonderful, Flo! Never better in my whole life!... I'm so excited about my new plans! I'm going to Paris... Yes, for a few weeks, and then I can get back, and then I'm doing a new show, and... Oh, it's all so wonderful! I'm so happy!... Yes... And I hope you are happy, too... Yes?... Oh, I'm so glad for you, Flo... Sounds funny for ex-husband and ex-wife to tell how happy they are, oui?... Yes, Flo... Goodbye, Flo... Goodbye...


[She hangs up]



Anna Held:
Darling...


[she falls to her bed, sobbing]



Marie:
My poor, petite! If you love him so, why did you divorce him?



Anna Held:
Because I thought it would bring him back to me. I was sure that it would bring him back to me.


[she cries]

Little Egypt:
Oh, Jack, is Ziegfeld a friend of yours?



Jack Billings:
Yes, we've been pals for years, but you wouldn't like him.



Little Egypt:
No?



Jack Billings:
No, he's up one day and down the next. If he got $10,000 tomorrow, he'd spend it on the girl he happened to like tomorrow night. You wouldn't want to waste your time meeting a felloe like that.



Little Egypt:
Oh, not if I met him on the right night.

Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.:
[after catching Ray Bolger doing a little softshoe backstage] Buddy, you're better with your feet than you are with your broom.



Ray Bolger:
Mr. Ziegfeld, you think so? Gee, I wish you'd give me a chance. I've got talent, and I'd like to get away from shifting scenery and moving props.



Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.:
How long have you been a property boy?



Ray Bolger:
Five years, but my heart hasn't been in it.



Ray Bolger:
You've been working a long time without your heart, buddy.

Sampson:
This is about talent.



Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.:
Something good and cheap no doubt?



Sampson:
Exactly! It's a young girl named Brice... Fanny... Fanny Brice. She;s working in burlesque.



Gene Buck:
Say, I've seen that girl, Flo!



Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.:
Pretty?



Gene Buck:
Well, yes and no. Shut your eyes and listen - yes! Open 'em and look - no, but a great performer!

We shall have a look at her at once - tonight!
