Holden Caulfield and Sally Hayes after ice skating scene:
(Holden and Sally are sitting in a coffee shop right next to the ice skating rink in Central Park making small talk, when Holden comes up with an idea) Holden: Sally, I got this idea. Okay so I got this idea that maybe you and I could get the hell out of here. Sally: Out of this coffee shop? Why the hell would we wanna do that?

(Takes the card, and looks at it, Sally leans over the table and whispers something in Holden’s ear) Sally: And, he’s pretty generous when it comes to prescribing meds.
