Arrowsmith

Arrowsmith

Dr. Martin Arrowsmith: You've got to get used to hearing my ideas.
Leora Arrowsmith: Oh! I'm gonna hear a lot of them?
Dr. Martin Arrowsmith: You're going to marry me.
Leora Arrowsmith: You don't tell me.
Dr. Martin Arrowsmith: I certainly do.
Leora Arrowsmith: Now, you know, I shouldn't wonder if you're right. Of course, it's a little early in the game to be dead sure, but I shouldn't wonder.


--Helen Hayes (as Leora Arrowsmith) in Arrowsmith

What Every Woman Knows

What Every Woman Knows

Alick Wylie: What is charm exactly, Maggie?
Maggie Wylie: Oh, it's... it's a sort of bloom on a woman. If you have it, you don't need anything else. And if you don't have it, it doesn't much matter what else you have. Some women, a few, have charm for all, and most have charm for one, and some have charm for none.


--Helen Hayes (as ) in What Every Woman Knows

The Sin of Madelon Claudet

The Sin of Madelon Claudet

Madelon Claudet: You know, it's the queerest thing. When I was a little girl, Father Matthew used to say to us children, "You pay for everything - everything in this life." And last night when we were dancing, I thought of him, and I laughed to myself and said, "What an old fool you are, Father Matthew..." But he was right. And I'm paying.


--Helen Hayes (as Madelon Claudet) in The Sin of Madelon Claudet

Stella 'Stell' Hallam: I've given up trying to figure out what your family thinks, Vicky. They just speak another language. I know this though: that I don't care any more what they think.
Victor Hallam: Well, I care.
Stella 'Stell' Hallam: You've always cared.
Victor Hallam: When it comes right down to it, my family have a sense of values that's pretty sane and level-headed.
Stella 'Stell' Hallam: Yes, I know it.
Victor Hallam: You know it, but you don't believe it. Is that it?
Stella 'Stell' Hallam: I do believe it, Vicky. And I believe also that all the Hallams in all the world are always right. They're so sure they know what you are - till after awhile they almost make you believe you're what they think you are. And then heaven help you - if you're not strong enough to help yourself.
Victor Hallam: Stella, you're all upset over nothing. I don't see what you're driving at.
Stella 'Stell' Hallam: There's so much you don't see, Vicky, that it almost breaks my heart.
