    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • "Das lumpen" is how the German soldier refers to the bulge Oliver causes when Lisa hides him under a haystack in a barn.

      • Oliver normally disputes the facts of Lisa's stories about their dating days. This time, he only complains about the ending that has him in a punching Buddy Atkinson, the leader of the all-girl orchestra Lisa performs with.

      • When Oliver and Lisa met again following the war, she was working at a restaurant playing cello for the Budapest Chamber Trio.

      • Lisa's father denies Oliver permission to marry his daughter because he didn't like his credit rating.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (Oliver asks Lisa how she got her father to give permission to marry him)
        Lisa: I lied to him. I told him that you were really a wealthy Austrailian and that you hid all your money in the kangaroo pouches. But that you weren't a very good judge of kangaroos because they all ran away with your money.

      • Oliver: (as underground Lisa leads soldier Oliver into a barn) Oh, yes! This is what I've been fighting for!
        Lisa: Why? Is there a shortage of them in the United States?
        Oliver
        : No. I meant, when the war is over, I'm gonna buy a farm with a barn like this. And chickens. And good rich soil where I can plant the little seeds and watch them shoot up toward the sun and the sky and then they'll grow into corn, wheat, alfalfa and beets.
        Lisa
        : How come you didn't get out on a Section Eight?

      • Oliver: (in flashback, handing Lisa a box of chocolates) I brought you something.
        Lisa: Thank you.(looking at the different candies) Which one has the diamond in it?
        Oliver
        : Uh, none of them.
        Lisa
        : Oh, they just for eating, not for wearing?
        Oliver
        : That's right.
        Lisa: Oh, well. I'll give it to the dog.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Lisa improves on the ending of courtship story by lifting the plot from a film she saw on the late, late show: The Broadway Gaities of 1938 starring Slim Sommerville and Sally Eilers. While the film is ficticious, the actors are real. Slim Sommerville was active mostly in comedies from the teens through the 1940s. Sally Eilers was a film actress from the early sound days through the end of the 1930s.
