Quotes from Lionel Barrymore's Characters

    • Otto Kringelein:
      [on the phone] It's pretty bad, he says I haven't long to live. [louder] I say he says I won't live much longer. No, it isn't nice to be told things like that. You plague, bother, and save, and all of a sudden you're dead.

    • George Bailey:
      Hey! Merry Christmas, Mr. Potter!
    • Mr. Potter:
      A happy new year to you... in jail!
