Singin' in the Rain (1952) Poster

Douglas Fowley: Roscoe Dexter


  • [filming a scene with a microphone hidden in a bush] 

    Rosco : Lina! We're missing every other word! You've got to talk into the mike!

    Lina : [pointing at the bush]  Well, I can't make love to a bush!

  • Lina Lamont : Gee, this wig weighs a ton! What dope'd wear a thing like this?

    Rosco : Everybody used to wear them, Lina.

    Lina Lamont : Well, then everybody was a dope.

  • [after the demonstration of a talking picture] 

    R.F. Simpson : What do you think of it, Dexter?

    Rosco : It'll never amount to a thing.

    Olga : [with heavy, snotty accent]  Its vulgar!

    Cosmo Brown : That's what they said about the horseless carriage.

  • Rosco : [after a take]  We're really rolling, Mr. Simpson.

    R.F. Simpson : Well, you can stop rolling at once.

    Rosco : What?

    R.F. Simpson : Don, Lina.

    Rosco : Ok, everybody save it!

    R.F. Simpson : Save it? Tell them to go home. We're shutting down for a few weeks.

    Rosco : What?

    R.F. Simpson : Well, don't just stand there. Tell them!

    Rosco : Everybody go until further notice! What is it?

  • Rosco : [after seeing the film screw-up]  The sound, its out of synchronization!

    R.F. Simpson : [irritated]  Well tell them to fix it!

    Rosco : [while getting up]  Yes sir, fix it!

  • Rosco : What's your name?

    Don Lockwood : Don Lockwood sir, but the fellas all call me Donald.

    Rosco : Wise guy, eh? All right, get this guy into Bert's suit! And remember Lockwood, you might be trading that fiddle in for a harp!
