Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House Quotes

  • Henry Simms: Mrs. Blandings, where you have the sewing room located will put the fireplace chimney right in the middle of the room, giving you a space roughly the shape of a square donut. While this would certainly be quite warm in the winter, it would otherwise be of doubtful utility.

  • Bill Cole: You've been taken to the cleaners, and you don't even know your pants are off.
    Muriel Blandings: I refuse to endanger the lives of my children in a house with less than four bathrooms.
    Jim Blandings: replies: For 1,300 dollars they can live in a house with three bathrooms and ROUGH IT.
    Joan Blandings: Oh look. Mother's diary. It's slightly torrid.
    Jim Blandings: 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: replies to Jim: Would you prefer it the other way around?
    Bill Cole: 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.

  • Jim Blandings: This little piggy went to market. A meek and as mild as a lamb. He smiled in his tracks. When they slipped him the axe. He KNEW he'd turn out to be Wham!

  • Muriel Blandings: I want it to be a soft green, not as blue-green as a robin's egg, but not as yellow-green as daffodil buds. Now, the only sample I could get is a little too yellow, but don't let whoever does it go to the other extreme and get it too blue. It should just be a sort of grayish-yellow-green. Now, the dining room. I'd like yellow. Not just yellow; a very gay yellow. Something bright and sunshine-y. I tell you, Mr. PeDelford, if you'll send one of your men to the grocer for a pound of their best butter, and match that exactly, you can't go wrong! Now, this is the paper we're going to use in the hall. It's flowered, but I don't want the ceiling to match any of the colors of the flowers. There's some little dots in the background, and it's these dots I want you to match. Not the little greenish dot near the hollyhock leaf, but the little bluish dot between the rosebud and the delphinium blossom. Is that clear? Now the kitchen is to be white. Not a cold, antiseptic hospital white. A little warmer, but still, not to suggest any other color but white. Now for the powder room - in here - I want you to match this thread, and don't lose it. It's the only spool I have and I had an awful time finding it! As you can see, it's practically an apple red. Somewhere between a healthy winesap and an unripened Jonathan. Oh, excuse me...
    Mr. Delford: You got that Charlie?
    Workman: Red, green, blue, yellow, white.
    Mr. Delford: Check.

  • Gussie: If you ain't eatin' Wham, you ain't eatin' ham.
