Kitty Foyle

Synopsis: A white collar worker from a blue collar family, Kitty Foyle has spent her so far short adult life in her hometown of Philadelphia or New York City. She has had two serious relationships, one associated with each city and each man with who she falls in love but in vastly different ways. "Philadelphia" is blue blooded Wyn Strafford VI. Wyn hires Kitty to be his secretary, he the editor for his pet project, a magazine, which is funded by family money. Kitty's now deceased father, despite liking Wyn as a person, warned Kitty against falling in love with him, regardless of his outward intentions, as his type always returned to his own kind. If she believes her father, Kitty may come to the realization that if a union with Wyn were to ever happen, it would not only be to him but to his family and their traditions, they who may have some say in the matter.

- Got a date tonight, Jane?

- Yeah.

Same date I have every night

with The Saturday Evening Post.

Don't you girls ever think

of anything but men?

The idea of spending

your whole life...

...flattering the ego

of some tobacco-smelling male.

I can think of a thousand better ways

of being happy.

- Name two.

- You said it.

- You and me both.

- Some people might kid themselves.

But me, I want a man.

I don't care who knows it.

- Amen, sister.

- Anywhere from 18 to 80.

They don't come too old

or too young for me.

Well, isn't independence

worth anything to you?

After all, what's the difference between

men bachelors and girl bachelors?

Men bachelors are that way on purpose.

I'm past all that, praise Mary.

I'm so old I can't even remember

me first kiss.

Well, I can't even remember me last.

Sorry, Kitty, we had a couple

emergencies at the hospital.

I had to stay late.

Been waiting long?

- Oh, no, just got here.

- Good.

Step on it, driver.

You must be as hungry as I am.

I'm afraid you're gonna

get a little hungrier...

...because I've gotta catch

another case first.

- What, before dinner?

- Yes, emergency.

As a matter of fact,

we're racing a stork right this minute.

Hurry, doctor.

Take care of this a minute

while I finish up.

You have no idea how right you look

with a baby in your arms.

You have no idea how right I feel.

Boy or a girl?

It's a boy.

Almost lost the little fellow.

Might've been better

if he hadn't pulled through.

Don't say that, Mark.

It's always better to pull through.

There's something about the way

you said that.

Kitty, will you?

I got a lot of money tied up

in that little hoop...

...and there's no other way

I can get any use out of it.

Will you marry me?

Do you think you could find my finger

under all these blankets?

You did say yes, didn't you?

I mean, it's all clear

and there's no confusion...

...and you understood what I asked you?

You asked me to marry you, didn't you?

That's it, exactly.

I got it. That's why I said yes.

What I'm getting around to...

...is that fellow in Philadelphia.

Is that all over?

All over.

You're not kidding yourself, are you?

It wouldn't do either of us good

if you weren't sure.

I'm sure, darling.

Look, I've gotta go back

to the hospital now.

But I'll check out at midnight.

Get your bags packed

and meet me there...

...and we'll go to Gretna Green.

- Gretna Green?

- Sure.

They've got a justice of peace

that's open all night.

Just like an Owl Drugstore.

Can you be ready by then?

And who says I can't?

Then meet me

at St. Timothy's Hospital at 12.

Smack on the dot.

- Twelve, smack on the dot, St. Timothy's.

- Right.

Driver, Pocahontas Hotel for Women,

West 34th Street.

But what about my dinner?

Save it, and we'll have

a big breakfast together.

- Good evening, Miss Foyle.

- Good evening.

- Will you make up my bill tonight?

- You're leaving?

I'll say I am. I'm getting married.

- And send for my bags around 11:30.

- Very well.

Hello.

Well, what are you doing out

of Philadelphia on a night like this?

How did you get in?

Men aren't allowed in this hotel,

you know.

The operator

on the back elevator's corrupt.

Oh, Wyn, why did you come?

You sent for me.

I told you if you ever wanted me

or needed me, or to have me...

...to send it back.

That isn't what I meant.

I sent it back because...

...that was all.

- That was the end.

- Don't say that, Kitty.

But it's true, Wyn.

I'm sorry, but you'll have to go.

I can't go, not until

I've told you something.

I don't want to hear it, Wyn.

Please go.
