Jerry Travers: In me you see a youth who is completely on the loose... no yens, no yearnings, no strings, no connections...
From Top Hat

Jean Arthur

Jean Arthur
(as Alice Sycamore)

Tony Kirby: I was just thinking about that family of yours. Living with them must be like living in a world of Walt Disney. Everybody does just as he pleases, doesn't he?
Alice Sycamore: Yes, Grandpa started it. He just suddenly left business one day. He started up in the elevator, turned around and came right down again -- and never went back. He could have been a rich man, but said he wasn't having any fun.

Lionel Barrymore

Lionel Barrymore
(as Martin Vanderhof)

Grandpa Vanderhoff: I used to be just like you. Then one morning when I was going up in the elevator, it struck me I wasn't having any fun. So I came right down and never went back. That was 35 years ago.
Anthony P. Kirby: Admirable. And you haven't done anything since huh.
Grandpa Vanderhoff: Oh yes, yes, yes... Oh just the things I wanted to do... collected stamps, went to the zoo when I got the notion, took up the harmonica, and even found time to notice when spring came around.

Ingrid Bergman

Ingrid Bergman
(as Stephanie Dickinson)

Stephanie: No, Dr. Frankenstein, this is no creation of yours! This is me. Me! Experiencing new things, things that I've never done before and having a hell of a good time.

Lionel Barrymore

Lionel Barrymore
(as Martin Vanderhof)

Grandpa Vanderhoff: Isn't there something else you'd rather be doing than this?
Mr. Poppins: No.
Grandpa Vanderhoff: Oh, go on with you. I don't believe a word you're saying. Go on, tell me, what would you rather be doing than this?


Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn
(as Eliza Doolittle)

Eliza Doolittle: I ain't done nothin' wrong by speaking to the gentleman. I've a right to sell flowers if I keep off the kerb. I'm a respectable girl: so help me, I never spoke to him 'cept so far as to buy a flower off me.

Alec Guinness

Alec Guinness
(as Prince Feisal)

Prince Feisal: The English have a great hunger for desolate places. I fear they hunger for Arabia.
T.E. Lawrence: Then you must deny it to them.
Prince Feisal: You are an Englishman. Are you not loyal to England?
T.E. Lawrence: To England and to other things.
Prince Feisal: To England and Arabia both? And is that possible? I think you are another of these desert-loving English.

Paul Henreid

Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston
(as Judah Ben)

Messala: Look to the West, Judah! Don't be a fool, look to Rome!
Judah Ben-Hur: I would rather be a fool than a traitor... or a killer!
Messala: I am a soldier!
Judah Ben-Hur: Yes! Who kills! For Rome! Rome is evil!
Messala: I warn you...
Judah Ben-Hur: No! I warn you! Rome is an affront to God! Rome is strangling my people and my country, the whole Earth! But not forever. I tell you the day Rome falls there will be a shout of freedom such as the world has never heard before!
From Ben-Hur

Eva Marie Saint

Eva Marie Saint
(as Eve Kendall)

Eve Kendall: I want you to do a favor for me. A big, big favor.
Roger Thornhill: Name it.
Eve Kendall: I want you to leave right now, stay far away from me, and don't come near me again. We're not going to get involved. Last night was last night, and it's all there was, and it's all there is. There isn't going to be anything more between us. So please. Goodbye, good luck, no conversation, just leave.
