Summer with Monika (1953)
Harry Lund: Monika, I'm going to start night school. You can become an engineer if you keep at it. I've always liked engines. I fixed the engine on the boat last autumn.
Monika Eriksson: You study to be an engineer, and then we'll get married, okay? Harry. I think I'm pregnant.
Harry Lund: What? Seriously?
Monika Eriksson: Hmm.
Harry Lund: We have to go back so I can start working. You need proper food.
Monika Eriksson: No, I'm not going back. I want summer to go on just like this. Harry, I don't know anyone as sweet as you.
Harry Lund: Monika, we have to make something real out of our lives. We'll care for each other. I'll study and get a decent job, so we can get married and have a nice house, you and me and the little one on its way.
Monika Eriksson: You'll come home from work and I'll have dinner ready. We'll take the children for Sunday walks. I won't work. I'll stay at home with the kids. We'll have nice clothes.
Harry Lund: We'll have a good life. We'll always stay together.
Monika Eriksson: Just you and me.
Monika Eriksson: Spring is here. Did you notice?
Harry Lund: Yes.
Monika Eriksson: One shouldn't work on a day like this.
Harry Lund: No, it's really crazy.
Monika Eriksson: Let's go away and never come back. We'll see the whole wide world. Are you game?
Harry Lund: Sure, let's go.
Monika Eriksson: You know where I work?
Harry Lund: Yes. It must be cold there.
Monika Eriksson: I thought I'd freeze my ass off last winter.
Harry Lund: You're not mad at me, are you?
Monika Eriksson: I like you.
Harry Lund: Are you sure?
Monika Eriksson: Dead sure.
Harry Lund: I thought we could eat at my place. Dad's in this boat club and they're meeting today. He's eating with the guys before the meeting. So, I thought we might...
Monika Eriksson: You're so sweet. It'll be such fun, almost like we're married. You're so sweet, not like the others at all. Like right out of a movie!
Monika Eriksson: Harry, why do some people have all the luck while others are miserable?
Harry Lund: Monika, we have each other.
Harry Lund: It's been a lovely summer, but everything changes starting today.
Monika Eriksson: Imagine being back in town. We haven't been to the movies since we saw "Dream Girl."
Harry Lund: No, we've been in our own dream.
Monika Eriksson: Hey. You'll have to hold me or I'll freeze. You may kiss me now, Harry.
Monika Eriksson: I guess we like each other a lot, huh?
Harry Lund: Monika...
Monika Eriksson: I'm crazy about you.
Harry Lund: There's no one but you. Only you.
Monika Eriksson: I can't stand those guys pinching me all the time. Why don't they pinch their wives?
Svensson: It's not as much fun.
Svensson: Come out with me. I'll cheer you up.
Monika Eriksson: Not likely. I've got other fish to fry. I'm going steady.
Svensson: You too? All the floozies are going off the market.
Monika's Boss: Nilsson!
Svensson: It's Svensson.
Monika's Boss: Same difference. I promised your boss a bottle on my ration card. He said you have money. Hurry up before they close!
Monika Eriksson: I'm soaking wet, but I'll freeze if I take my coat off.
Harry Lund: The sleeping bag's warm.
Monika Eriksson: [takes her coat off] I don't want to wrinkle my skirt.
[takes her skirt off]
Monika Eriksson: Take off your pants so you don't ruin the creases. What nice long legs you have. Come here.
Försäljare hos Forsbergs: Finally decided to show up?
Harry Lund: I didn't hear my alarm. Dad's sick, so I'm alone.
Försäljare hos Forsbergs: Out with hussies, no doubt. That slut at the greengrocer's.
Harry Lund: Mind your own business!
Monika Eriksson: Now we can go wherever we like.
Harry Lund: Like you said that time at the cafe: "Let's go away!" Let's forget about all those bastards.
Monika Eriksson: I hate them. Everyone who holds us back, who wants us to grovel.
Harry Lund: Let them scurry around like rats - - we won't be there.
Harry Lund: Imagine them slaving away at Forsberg's now.
Monika Eriksson: And down in that old cellar, carrying crates around in the dust and dirt.
Harry Lund: We've rebelled, Monika, against all of them.
Harry Lund: You see - I've always been so lonely. My mother got sick when I was five. She was sick until she died. I was eight by then. Dad went a bit funny after that. He got all quiet. He and I would sit at home all evening, neither saying a word. We'd just sit there.
Monika Eriksson: I've never been alone. There's so many of us. The brats fight and wreck everything. Dad's always drunk and kicking up a fuss.
Verkmästaren, Harrys arbetskamrat: Well? What did you have?
Harry Lund: A girl. Everything went well. Almost seven pounds.
Verkmästaren, Harrys arbetskamrat: Get going now. I don't want any fingers cut off here. Come back in the morning - sober. Go home and put on your best suit and buy her some carnations.
Harry Lund: Red carnations?
Verkmästaren, Harrys arbetskamrat: At your age, buy the green ones.
