Anita Ekberg Quotes:

Elya Carlson: [from trailer] In this country, you really need only a little patience and self discipline.
Maxine Richter: Discipline?
Elya Carlson: Yes, to know what to give and when to get it. And I must say my dear, you do know when and what.


Pierre Bezukhov: [opens the bedroom drapes, while his spoiled wife sleeps on] Come on, Helene! We've got lots to do if we want to leave for the country.
Helene Kuragina: [very sleepy] Oh Pierre, it's so early!
[he kisses her, and she gets a crafty look on her face]
Helene Kuragina: Besides, it's so boring in the country.
Pierre Bezukhov: [Seriously] I'm sorry, my dear, but I promised those peasants I'd come and see them. They need a new hospital, and a new school, and many other things besides.
Helene Kuragina: [very spoiled] Well they can starve just as well without a school, and they can die just as well without a hospital!
[catches herself, changes her tune]
Helene Kuragina: Pierre, why don't you go on without me? You can do what you have to do, and I'll come visit you in a few months time.
[Slyly]
Helene Kuragina: You'll appreciate me so much more after a few months of sleeping alone.

[after an unsuccessful interview]
Zenobia, Queen of Palmira: Take him back to the cross!
