Be My Guest - Irene (And Then They Start To Sparkle): Question #8 - Name some of your favorite movie quotes

8. What is your favorite movie quote? Can be more than one.

There are so many - but I choose these (again in random order) :


Mr. Banks: “Winifred, where are the children?”

Mary Poppins

~ I simply adore MARY POPPINS (1964) - sometimes when I am with my sister and I haven't said anyhing for a few minutes (I tend to daydream..) she usually quotes this.. ~

 Ruth Hussey, James Stewart, Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn

Elizabeth Imbrie: "We’ve come for the body of Macauly Connor."

C.K. Dexter Haven: "I’m so glad you came. Can you use a typewriter?"

Elizabeth Imbrie: "No, thanks. I’ve got one at home."

~ Elizabeth Imbrie of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is one of my all-time favourite characters - maybe a little bit more if she is impersonated by the amazing Ruth Hussey.. and the dialogues are great in this play..~


Miriam Aarons: "Well he could crack a coconut with those knees! - If he could get them together!"

~ Got to mention THE WOMEN (1939)! It’s full of awesome (and invidious) quotes - and amazing actresses. ~


Susan Applegate (asked to speak Swedish): "I vant to be alone."

,The Major and the Minor

~ Hilarious! I like such film spoofs.. In case you do not know: It’s from THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR (1942)~


Finally - these two people of CASABLANCA (1942) breake my heart - I am quite sentimental..:


Mr. Leuchtag: "Liebchen - sweetnessheart, what watch?"

Mrs. Leuchtag: "Ten watch."

Mr. Leuchtag: "Such watch?"

Carl: "Hm. You will get along beautiful in America, mm-hmm."

There are so many beautiful/classic lines from Casablanca.

I love The Major and the Minor...that is a cute line from that film.

I have never seen The Women. Hard to believe...but true.

Thanks for sharing, Irene.
