Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.: Children play with the dreams of tomorrow. Old men play with the memories of yesterday. Fred Astaire: I'm sorry, I can't quite place you. What line of work are you in? Gene Kelly: Well, I dance. Fred Astaire: Oh, at home, for the folks? Picnics and that kind of thing? Gene Kelly: Oh, no, no. In public. Fred Astaire: On street corners? Gene Kelly: Oh, no. On the screen. Motion pictures! You do go to pictures that have dancing in them, don't you? Fred Astaire: I try to see them all. Gene Kelly: Did you see a picture called "Cover Girl"? Fred Astaire: Yes. Gene Kelly: Well, who did all the dancing in that? Fred Astaire: You're not Rita Hayworth? Gene Kelly: No I'm not... Ginger.
