Reginald Owen Quotes:

Sir Henry Carmel: Well, she needn't have dropped the platter and insulted my friend. What was it she said to you?
Syrette: I remember very well, sir. It was, if I may take the liberty of repeating it, 'Nuts to the squirrels.'
Sir Henry Carmel: Doesn't make sense!
Adam Belinski: No, it doesn't. It should be 'Squirrels to the nuts.' But I have an open mind, and if someone says to me 'Nuts to the squirrels,' I accept it. You may be inclined to say that to me yourself some day, when you know me better - and I'm not so sure that you will include the 'squirrels.'
Sir Henry Carmel: [shaking his head] That's much too deep for me.


Serafin: I believe a condemned man has a right to one last request.
The Viceroy: Oh within reason - a visit from a loved one, a prayer, a beef steak.


Thorpe Athelny: Don't stand by my chair in order to make eyes at him.
