After watching a couple of Alfred Hitchock movies, i found the dialogues as impressive as the movie plots.
Here an interesting conversation from the movie “The Rear Window” (1957) between the hero, Jeff and his home-care nurse, Stella.
The conversation seems relevant in today’s times.
Stella : Look, Mr Jefferies, I’m not an educated woman, But I can tell you one thing. When a man and a woman see each other and like each other, They ought to come together, wham, Like a couple of taxis on Broadway, And not sit around analysing each other Like two specimens in a bottle.
Jeff: There’s an intelligent way to approach marriage.
Stella: Intelligence. Nothing has caused the human race so much trouble as intelligence.
Jeff: No, we’ve progressed emotionally.
Stella: Baloney. Once it was see somebody, get excited, get married. Now, it’s read a lot of books, Fence with a lot of four-syllable words, psychoanalyse each other Until you can’t tell the difference Between a petting party and a civil service exam.
Jeff: People have different emotional levels.
Stella: When l married Myles, we were both a couple of maladjusted misfits. We are still maladjusted, and we have loved every minute of it.
Jeff: Well, that’s fine, Stella. Now, would you fix me a sandwich, please?
Stella: Yes, I will. And I’ll spread a little common sense on the bread.
