Fun Stuff

From Samson and Delilah (1949)
Haisham: [From afar, Delilah observes her home going up in flames] Turn away, little mistress. Don't look anymore. All you have in the world is ashes and death.
Delilah: [turns around and sobs] Samson lives.
Haisham: May his flesh rot from his bones.
Delilah: Be still, old fool. If it takes all my life, I'll make him curse the day he was born.
Haisham: He called you a fork-tongued adder.
Delilah: He's going to feel its sting.
Haisham: [holds Delilah's hand] What strength can these hands have against him?
Delilah: Perhaps greater than a lion's and softer than a dove's. I'll find strength, Hisham. Strength to destroy him!
