The Bad Seed (1956)
Christine Penmark: Rhoda, what happened to old Mrs. Post in Wichita?
Rhoda: There was ice on the steps and I slipped and fell against her, and that was all.
Christine Penmark: That was all?
Rhoda: No. I slipped on purpose.

Leroy: You ask me and I say you don't even feel sorry for what happened to that little boy.
Rhoda: Why should I feel sorry? It was Claude Daigle who got drowned, not me!

Rhoda: You tell lies like that, you won't go to Heaven when you die!

Rhoda: You figured out something that never happened and so it's all lies!

Rhoda: Claude was dead. He wouldn't know if he had the medal pinned on him or not.

Rhoda: What will you give me for a basket of kisses?
Col. Kenneth Penmark: A basket of kisses? Why, I'll give you a basket of hugs!

Rhoda: I like apricot juice, it doesn't even need ice.

Christine Penmark: This is my daughter, Rhoda.
Reginald 'Reggie' Tasker: Hello, Rhoda. Well, isn't she a little sweetheart!
Rhoda: Thank you.
[she curtsies]
Reginald 'Reggie' Tasker: That's the kind of thing that makes an old bachelor wish he were married.
Rhoda: Oh, you like little girls to curtsy?
Reginald 'Reggie' Tasker: The best thing left out of the Middle Ages.
Rhoda: I'm having dinner upstairs.
Reginald 'Reggie' Tasker: The loss is ours. All ours.
Christine Penmark: You may go now, Rhoda.
Rhoda: Yes, Mommy. It's been a pleasure to have met you, Mr. Tasker.
[She exits]
Reginald 'Reggie' Tasker: Now there's a little ray of sunshine.
Christine Penmark: Oooh, I've seen her stormy.

Rhoda: Why can't you wash off blood?
Leroy: Because you can't. And the police know it. You can wash it and you can wash it. There's always some left. Everybody knows that.

Leroy: You want to know what you done after you hit him? You jerked the medal off his shirt and then you rolled that sweet little boy off that wharf from under them pilings.
Rhoda: You don't know anything. None of what you've said is true.
Leroy: You know I'm telling the gospel truth. You know I got it figured out.
Rhoda: You've figured out something that never happened. And so it's all lies. Now take your excelsior to the basement and put it where you can sleep on it when you are supposed to be working.

Rhoda: I don't know what you're talking about. I don't feel ANY way at all.
