Louis Jourdan Quotes:

Roger: Do you know why Big Ben is called Big Ben, Mr. Stuart?
Richard Stuart: No, but I have a feeling I'm going to.
Roger: Big Ben was named for Sir Benjamin Hall, commissioner of works during the time it was built in 1859, during the reign of Queen Victoria. It stands three hundred and twenty nine feet tall, and contains a bell weighing thirteen tonne. You didn't hear a word I said, sir.
Richard Stuart: Oh, a few of them.

Honore Lachaille: Did she send a note?
Gaston Lachaille: Obviously.
Honore Lachaille: Oh, good, good! Did you have to change the arrangements?
Gaston Lachaille: Don't be vulgar.
Honore Lachaille: Ah, well, she's a wonderful girl, Gigi. So young, so fresh, so vulgar. She's not sophisticated like most other woman are, but then what do sophisticated women have to offer? Nothing! They are boring, they have no surprises! But a liaison with someone like Gigi can last for months!
Gaston Lachaille: Good night. Good night!

Gaston Lachaille: [Gaston speculates on the unfaithfulness of his mistress Liane] She's so gay tonight / She's like spring tonight / She's a rollicking, frolicking thing tonight / So disarming, soft and charming / She is not thinking of me / No, she's not thinking of me! In her eyes tonight / There's a glow tonight / They're so bright they could light Fountainbleu tonight / She's so gracious, so vivacious / She is not thinking of me! Bless her little heart / Crooked to the core / Acting out a part / What a rollicking, frolicking bore! She's such fun tonight / She's a treat tonight / You could spread her on bread, she's so sweet tonight / So devoted, sugar-coated / That it's heart-warming to see / Oh, she's simmering with love / Oh, she's shimmering with love / Oh, she's not thinking of me! She is not thinking of me! / Someone has set her on fire / Is it Jacques? Is it Paul or Leon? / Who's turning her furnace up higher? / Oh she's hot, but it's not for Gaston! Oh, she's gay tonight / Oh, so gay tonight / A gigantic, romantic cliché tonight / How she blushes, how she gushes / How she fills me with ennui! / She's so ooh-la-la-la-la, so UNTRUE-la-la-la-la / Oh, she's not thinking of me!
