The Graduate (1967)
Elizabeth Wilson: Mrs. Braddock
Benjamin : [It's morning. Mr. Braddock is in the kitchen. Ben walks in] I'm going to marry Elaine Robinson.
Mr. Braddock : Well, well, well!
[He almost giggles as he crosses to Ben and takes his hand to shake it. Mrs. Braddock appears in the doorway]
Mrs. Braddock : What's happening
Mr. Braddock : Ben says he and Elaine are getting married.
Mrs. Braddock : I don't believe it.
Mr. Braddock : That what he says. Right?
Benjamin : I'm going up to Berkeley today.
Mrs. Braddock : Oh, Ben. This is so exciting.
Mr. Braddock : Come on, let's call the Robinsons. We've got something to celebrate.
Benjamin : No. I think you'll want to wait on that.
Mr. Braddock : They don't know?
Benjamin : No, they don't.
Mr. Braddock : Well, when did you decide all this?
Benjamin : About an hour ago.
Mr. Braddock : Wait a minute. You talked to Elaine this morning?
Benjamin : No. She doesn't know about it.
Mr. Braddock : She doesn't know that you're coming up to Berkeley?
Benjamin : No. Actually, she doesn't know about us getting married yet.
Mr. Braddock : When did you two talk this over?
Benjamin : We haven't.
Mr. Braddock : Ben, this whole idea sounds pretty half-baked.
Benjamin : No, it's not, Dad. It's completely baked. It's a decision I've made.
Mrs. Braddock : But what makes you think she wants to marry you?
Benjamin : [Ben picks up his suitcase, walks to the door] She doesn't. To be perfectly honest, she doesn't like me.
Mr. Braddock : [at the kitchen table] Elaine's back from school. It might be a nice gesture if you asked her out.
Benjamin : [in the swimming pool] I suppose she's not good enough for you! Is that it?
Benjamin : Look, Elaine Robinson and I do not get along.
Mr. Braddock : How do you know? You haven't seen her since high school. I suppose your evenings - whatever you do with them - are just too valuable.
Benjamin : That has nothing to do with it.
Mr. Braddock : I guess I'll just have to tell Mr. Robinson that you're too busy every evening, doing God knows what.
Mrs. Braddock : Now, don't go on like this!
Mr. Braddock : I'm not.
Mrs. Braddock : If Benjamin absolutely refuses to take her out...
Benjamin : I do.
Mrs. Braddock : Then I will simply have to invite all of the Robinsons over on Thursday.
[Ben falls off his air mattress and splashes into the pool]
Mrs. Braddock : [Ben is shaving in his bathroom] Oh, my.
Benjamin : Hi.
Mrs. Braddock : Hi, can I talk to you for a minute?
Benjamin : Sure.
Mrs. Braddock : Benji... darling, I'm, uh... going to ask you something, but you don't have to tell me if you don't want to.
Benjamin : What?
Mrs. Braddock : Well, I was going to ask you what you do when you go off at night.
Benjamin : When I go out?
Mrs. Braddock : You don't have to tell me, if you don't want to.
Benjamin : No, I do, i want to tell you: I drive around.
Mrs. Braddock : What else?
Benjamin : Nothing else.
Mrs. Braddock : Well, you don't drive around from midnight til noon the next day, Benjamin?
Benjamin : Oh, no.
Mrs. Braddock : Well then, what do you do? Do you meet someone?
Benjamin : [Benjamin nicks his finger with the razor] Meet someone?
Mrs. Braddock : Hm.
Benjamin : Why do you say that?
Mrs. Braddock : Well, this is your business. I won't play games with you.
Benjamin : No wait, wait! I don't meet anyone, Mother, but why do you say that?
Mrs. Braddock : Benjamin, I don't want to pry into your affairs, but I would rather you didn't say anything at all than be dishonest. Good night.
[Mrs. Braddock leaves]
Benjamin : Well, wait! Wait a minute!
