Good old Rachmaninov. The Second Piano Concerto. Never misses.

-Richard Sherman (played by Tom Ewell in Seven Year Itch)

Then, in Richard Sherman’s imagination, spoken by “The Girl”:

Rachmaninoff…It isn’t fair…Every time I hear it, I go to pieces…It shakes me, it quakes me. It makes me feel goose-pimply all over. I don’t know where I am or who I am or what I’m doing. Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Don’t ever stop!

but later … in reality …

This is what they call classical music, isn’t it? I can tell because there is no vocal.

and finally … when they play chopsticks together …

I don’t know about Rachmaninoff and this shakes you and quakes you stuff, but this really gets me…and how…I can feel the goose pimples…Don’t stop. Don’t stop.

-“The Girl” (played by Marilyn Monroe in Seven Year Itch)
