QUOTES FROM Melvyn Douglas CHARACTERS

Margaret Waverton says: For now heaven's sake stop, let's look at a map or something.

Roger Penderell says: My own view is we're not on a map.

Count Leon Dalga says: Ninotchka, you like me just a little bit?

Ninotchka says: Your general appearance is not distasteful.

Count Leon Dalga says: Thank you.

Ninotchka says: The whites of your eyes are clear. Your cornea is excellent.

Count Leon Dalga says: - your cornea's terrific! Ninotchka tell me, you're so expert on things: can it be that I'm falling in love with you?

Ninotchka says: Why must you bring in wrong values? Love is a romantic designation for a most ordinary biological, or shall we say chemical, process. A lot of nonsense is taught and written about it.

Count Leon Dalga says: Oh I see. What do you use instead?

Ninotchka says: I acknowledge the existence of a natural impulse, common to all.

Count Leon Dalga says: What can I possibly do to encourage such an impulse in you?

Count Leon Dalga says: You don't have to do a thing. Chemically we're already quite sympathetic.

Ninotchka says: I must go.

Count Leon Dalga says: But Ninotchka - I held you in my arms, you kissed me.

Ninotchka says: I kissed a polish lancer too - before he died.

Count Leon Dalga says: Pardon me, are you an explorer?

Ninotchka says: No. I'm looking for the Eiffel Tower.

Count Leon Dalga says: Good Heavens, is that thing lost again? Oh, are you interested in the view?

Ninotchka says: I'm interested in the Eiffel Tower from a technical standpoint.

Count Leon Dalga says: Technical? No, no; I'm afraid I couldn't be of much help from that angle. You see a Parisian only goes to the tower in moments of despair - to jump off.

Count Leon Dalga says: Technical? No, no, I'm afraid I couldn't be of much help from that angle. You see a Parisian only goes to the tower in moments of despair - to jump off.

Ninotchka says: How long does it take a man to land?

Count Leon Dalga says: Now isn't that too bad; the last time I jumped I forgot to time it.

Count Leon Dalga says: Now isn't that too bad, the last time I jumped I forgot to time it.

Bill Cole says: You've been taken to the cleaners, and you don't even know your pants are off.

Muriel Blandings says: I refuse to endanger the lives of my children in a house with less than four bathrooms.

Jim Blandings says: replies: For 1,300 dollars they can live in a house with three bathrooms and ROUGH IT.

Joan Blandings says: Oh look. Mother's diary. It's slightly torrid.

Jim Blandings says: What's with this kissing all of a sudden? I don't like it. Every time he goes out of this house, he shakes my hand and kisses you.

Muriel Blandings says: replies to Jim: Would you prefer it the other way around?

Bill Cole says: The next time you're going to do anything or say anything or buy anything, think it over very carefully. When you're sure you're right, forget the whole thing.

Homer Bannon says: You're an unprincipled man, Hud.

Homer Bannon says: You're an unprincipled young man Hud.

Hud Bannon says: Don't let that worry you none. You got enough for both of us.

Homer Bannon says: You're an unprincipled man, Hud.

Homer Bannon says: You're an unprincipled young man Hud.

Ninotchka says: Must you flirt?

Count Leon Dalga says: Well, I don't have to, but I find it natural.

Ninotchka says: Suppress it.

Count Leon Dalga says: Ninotchka, it's midnight. One half of Paris is making love to the other half.
