toJapan. By Amalgamated Oil.

You don't say. Good outfit.

Nice opportunity.

I hope so.


Oh. Oh, Scott. I've lost one of the

dogs. She ran after an old Airedale.

How plebeian. May I present

the Contessa Campanella?

Miss Kay Colby.

How do you do?

Oh, the Miss Colby I've heard so much

about from Scott. Really? How nice of Scott.

And Mr. George Wadsworth.

William Wadsworth.

Sorry. Contessa Campanella.

How do you do?

How do you do? Are you

sailing with us, Miss Colby?

No. I wish I were. Oh, dear. What a

pity. It's divine this time of year.

The dogs adore it.

Don't you, baby?

Excuse us, please. We have some last-minute

talking to do. Good-bye. Bon voyage.

Naturally. Good-bye.


Very charming, your Miss Colby. She's

not my Miss Colby. She's Wadsworth's.

Hadn't you better be getting aboard?

Not rushing me, are you?

Of course not, dear.

All ashore who's going ashore!

All ashore who's going ashore!

All ashore who's going ashore!

Oh, Bill. Come on. Be a sport. This is

our last chance. Get off the boat with me.

Please, honey. This is my big break. Oh,

I know, but you'll be away two whole years.

Well, that's all right. What's two years? Anything's

liable to happen to us in that length of time.

We may change- both of us.

Why take chances?

Oh, Kay.

Don't start that all over again.

We'll get along.

We don't need much.

Oh, no. None of this cottage stuff for me. I want

more than that. I've got my future to think about.

Bill, I thought it was

gonna be our future.

Well, sure. Sure.

That's what I meant.

Naturally I mean both of us. But

I've gotta look out for myself too.

All ashore who's going ashore!

Come on, honey. You better

get started. Oh, Bill.

All ashore who's going ashore!

Last call.


Good-bye! Bon voyage!

Herbert Fields

Herbert Fields (July 26, 1897 – March 24, 1958) was an American librettist and screenwriter. Born in New York City, Fields began his career as an actor, then graduated to choreography and stage direction before turning to writing. From 1925 until his death, he contributed to the libretti of many Broadway musicals. He wrote the book for most of the Rodgers and Hart musicals of the 1930s and later collaborated with his sister Dorothy on several musicals, including Annie Get Your Gun, Something for the Boys, Up in Central Park, and Arms and the Girl. He won the 1959 Tony Award for Best Musical for Redhead. Fields wrote the screenplays for a string of mostly B-movies, including Let's Fall in Love (1933), Hands Across the Table (1935), Love Before Breakfast (1936), Fools for Scandal (1938), Honolulu (1939), and Father Takes a Wife (1941). He was also one of several writers who worked on The Wizard of Oz, although he did not receive a screen credit for his contribution.
