George C. Scott Quotes:

Bert Gordon: [Viciously to Sarah] You're here on a rain check, and I know it! You're hanging on by your nails. Let that glory whistle ring out loud and clear, and you're a wreck on a railroad track! You're a horse that finished last! Now, don't make trouble, Miss Lady Bug! Live and let live while you can!


Paolo Maltese: And this is the girl, my fidanzata, that I am bringing home to meet my folks. Of all the women in the whole world that I can choose from to be my wife, who do I choose? An ignorant slob of a hatcheck girl who thinks Pisa - Piazza del Duomo in Pisa, Joey - is a stopping-off place between hamburger joints.


Bert Gordon: How's your hand?
Fast Eddie: Fine.
Bert Gordon: Good. I'd hate to think I was puttin' my money on a cripple.
Fast Eddie: Hey, whaddaya say somethin' like that for?
Sarah Packard: It's alright, Eddie. I'm sure Mr. Gordon meant no offense. It was a figure of speech.
Bert Gordon: That's right, Miss Packard.
Sarah Packard: And a fact is a fact.
Bert Gordon: Smart girl, Eddie.

George C. Scott Facts
The only products that Scott ever endorsed in a TV commercial shown in the USA were the Renault Alliance sedan and Encore coupe (later the Alliance coupe), built in the USA by American Motors.

He played Lt. William "Bill" Kinderman in The Exorcist III (1990). His ex-wife Colleen Dewhurst was the voice of Satan in the film. Son Campbell Scott played Ethan Thomas in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005).

An aficionado of acting, he told interviewer Lawrence Grobel in his December 1980 "Playboy" magazine interview that his The Hustler (1961) co-star Paul Newman's performance in that film was nothing special (both actors were nominated for Academy Awards for their performances). However, he found Newman's performance as the eponymous Hud (1963) to be a superb piece of acting.
