Meet Me in St. Louis script
Synopsis: "Meet Me in St. Louis" is a classic MGM romantic musical comedy that focuses on four sisters (one of whom is the nonpareil Judy Garland) on the cusp of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The film spotlights the sisters' education in the ways of the world, which includes, but isn't limited to, learning about life and love, courtesy of the prototypical boy next door. In the end, love -- accompanied by song, dance and period costumes, all in glorious Technicolor -- conquers all.

ESTHER!

ESTHER,

HE'S OUT THERE.

JOHN TRUITT?

ON THE PORCH.

ALLEZ VOUS.

ALLEZ VOUS.

WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO SIT

ON OUR OWN FRONT PORCH.

ISN'T IT A LOVELY

DAY, ESTHER DEAR?

HEAVENLY, ROSE.

SIMPLY HEAVENLY.

WELL, HE'S NOT

VERY NEIGHBORLY,

I MUST SAY.

AFTER ALL, HE'S ONLY

LIVED HERE THREE WEEKS.

YOU CAN'T EXPECT HIM

TO FLING HIMSELF AT YOU.

WELL, THAT'S TRUE.

BESIDES, MEETING

ACROSS THE LAWN:

WOULD BE SO ORDINARY.

I DON'T WANT TO BE

JUST INTRODUCED TO HIM.

I WANT IT TO BE:

SOMETHING STRANGE

AND WONDERFUL--

SOMETHING I'LL

ALWAYS REMEMBER.

I'LL GET GEORGE BRIGGS

TO BRING HIM:

TO LON'S

GOING-AWAY PARTY.

COULD YOU?

ROSE, ESTHER,

THE WATER'S HOT.

YOU SHOULD:

WASH YOUR HAIR NOW.

WE'RE EATING EARLY,

YOU KNOW.

ALL RIGHT, MOTHER.

WHY ARE WE:

EATING EARLY?

YOU DON'T WANT

THE FAMILY IN THERE

WHILE A MAN PROPOSES

LONG DISTANCE.

PROPOSES?

I DON'T SEE

WHY YOU ASSUME:

WARREN'S GOING

TO PROPOSE TO ME.

WHY ELSE DO YOU:

THINK HE'S CALLING

LONG DISTANCE?

DO YOU KNOW:

WHAT IT COSTS?

I'M NOT EVEN SURE

I'LL BE IN.

WHEN YOU GET:

TO BE MY AGE,

YOU'LL FIND THERE

ARE MORE IMPORTANT

THINGS THAN BOYS.

" THE MOMENT

I SAW HIM SMILE "

" I KNEW HE WAS

JUST MY STYLE "

" MY ONLY REGRET "

" IS WE'VE NEVER MET "

" THOUGH I DREAM OF HIM

ALL THE WHILE "

" BUT HE DOESN'T KNOW

I EXIST "

" NO MATTER

HOW I MAY PERSIST "

" SO IT'S CLEAR TO SEE "

" THERE'S NO HOPE

FOR ME "

" THOUGH I LIVE

AT 5135 KENSINGTON AVENUE "

" AND HE LIVES AT 5133 "

" HOW CAN I IGNORE "

" THE BOY NEXT DOOR? "

" I LOVE HIM

MORE THAN I CAN SAY "

" DOESN'T TRY

TO PLEASE ME "

" DOESN'T EVEN TEASE ME "

" AND HE NEVER SEES ME
