Movie Quote of the Day – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, 1967 (dir. Stanley Kramer)


guess_who's_coming_to_dinner

Christina Drayton: Now I have some instructions for you. I want you to go straight back to the gallery – Start your motor – When you get to the gallery tell Jennifer that she will be looking after things temporarily, she’s to give me a ring if there’s anything she can’t deal with herself. Then go into the office, and make out a check, for “cash,” for the sum of $5,000. Then carefully, but carefully Hilary, remove absolutely everything that might subsequently remind me that you had ever been there, including that yellow thing with the blue bulbs which you have such an affection for. Then take the check, for $5,000, which I feel you deserve, and get – permanently – lost. It’s not that I don’t want to know you, Hilary – although I don’t – it’s just that I’m afraid we’re not really the sort of people that you can afford to be associated with. Don’t speak, Hilary, just. . .go.

Movie Quote of the Day – The Russians Are Coming The Russians Are Coming, 1966 (dir. Norman Jewison)


Pete Whittaker: Ask them if they’re Russians!
Walt Whittaker: Peter, be quiet.
Lieutenant Rozanov: [thick Russian accent] Very clever little boy. Very, very clever, to see that my friend and I are foreigners here, but of course not Russian, naturally. What would the Russians be doing on United States of America island, with so many animosities and hatreds between these two countries? It is too funny an idea, is it not? No, we. . .we are of course. . .Norveegans.
Walt Whittaker: Norweigans?
Lieutenant Rozanov: On a small training exercise for the Nyaato countries…
Alexei Kolchin: NATO!
Lieutenant Rozanov: NATO countries, of course, yes. Ah, to reach place of power motorboats it is necessary to make borrowings of automobile, for a short time only, sir.
Walt Whittaker: Uh…uh…may, may I ask you something, please?
Lieutenant Rozanov: Yes, of course.
Walt Whittaker: Are, are there nine of you out there, and are you all Russians with machine guns, and does one of you look like Uncle Ha. . .I meant, look like a wrestler?
Lieutenant Rozanov: Unnnnnnngh. . .I am sorry to, uh, comply with your statement, but misfortunately, all of the answers to these questions are. . .yes.
