Small Town Girl

Synopsis: Kay is a girl living in a small rural town whose life is just too dull and repetitious to bear. One night, she meets young, handsome, and rich Bob Dakin, who asks her for directions while drunk and then proceeds to take her out on a night on the town. Kay likes the stranger, and when the drunken Bob decides that they should get married, Kay hesitates little before consenting. The morning after the affair, Bob, once sober, regrets his mistake. His strict and upright parents, however, insist that the young couple pretend marriage for 6 months before divorcing, in order to avoid bad publicity. Bob resents Kay for standing in the way of him and his fiancée, Priscilla, but Kay still hopes that he'd have a change of heart.

And you could have taken

that job in Boston, too.

It wasn't like it is now

When I don't even get a reply

To a single ad I answer.

You know you felt like I do.

Well, perhaps I did once,

But then suddenly George

took the place of all that.

That's the way it hits you, Kay.

But just to be planted here

In this same

- For the rest of your life

When you know there's so much more.


Here, Kay.

You're so all-Fired anxious

To get out in that circus.

Take these letters down and mail them

At the post office.


Oh, very nice.

All right.

Thank you.

Hi, Kay!

Hey, hold your horses.

I'm heading that way myself.

Oh, I can't wait, Elmer.

I've got to mail these letters

And then get on back to the store.

No, no, wait a minute.

I want to talk to you.

Kay, how are you? You

keeping your chin up?

Keeping your chin up?

Ha ha! How'd you know

I was gonna say that?

Oh, I don't know.

Just because you always do, I guess.

Well, then I'll stop saying it.

I mean, if you don't like it,

If you don't want me to.

I want you to do anything

you feel like doing.

Well, do you mean that?

Oh, Elmer, stop.

My, some of these cars

Are pretty colors, aren't they?

Ah, they're all right if you

like them gaudy, I suppose.

Gee, it was funny back there

on the pole a while ago.

I sort of got some dust in my throat,

And without thinking, I let

fly right down on a girl's hat.

Oh, Elmer, you didn't.

That's disgusting.

Well, I couldn't help it.

Too late to yell to her to duck.

Well, all right, but you

needn't laugh about it.

I'm sorry.

What, did you snitch that off a car?

No. This is Dr. Picard's

Original stratosphere blimp,

And it was given to me because...

because I have a pretty neck.

Now, what the heck

are you talking about?

Oh, nothing.
