Quotes from Ron Howard's Characters

    1. Gillom Rogers: Mr. Books, How is it you've killed so many men? My spread wasn't much bigger than yours.
    From The Shootist. Submitted by Sarfaraz A (20 months ago)
    1. Zaneeta Shinn: It's indecent to meet boys at the footbridge!
    2. Tommy Djilas: he answers Zaneeta: First thing after supper?
    3. Winthrop Paroo: she answers Tommy: All right! Ye Gods!
    4. Harold Hill: Mothers of River City, heed that warning before it's too late! Watch for the telltale signs of corruption! The minute your son leaves the house, does he rebuckle his knickerbockers below the knee? Is there a nicotine stain on his index finger? A dime-novel hidden in the corncrib? Is he starting to memorize jokes from Captain Billy's Whiz-Bang? Are certain words creeping into his conversation? Words like 'swell' and "so's your old man"? If so my friends, ya got trouble!
    5. Winthrop Paroo: No, thank you, AMARYLLITH! [Winthrop had an embarressing lisp]
    6. Harold Hill: Ladies and gentlemen, either you are closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge, or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated by the presence of a pool table in your community!
    7. Marcellus Washburn: Well, ain't no call for a boys' band in this town. Anything these Iowa people don't have already, they do without.
    8. Tommy Djilas: Mayor Shinn, your honor, your daughter and I have been going steady behind your back.
    From The Music Man. Submitted by rick b (2 years ago)
