Laurey: Gracious! What'd I want to marry you for?
Curly: Uh, well, I dunno, couldn't you maybe think up some reason why you might?

Laurey: [looks at Curly and Aunt Eller] Is this all that's come a-callin' an' already 10 o'clock on a Saturday mornin'?

Laurey: I don't see why this had to happen when everything was so fine.

Laurey: [sobbing] I won't ever forget, I tell ya. Never will.
Aunt Eller: That's alright, Laurey baby. You can't forget, just don't try to. Oh, lots of things happen to folks. Sickness or being poor and hungry, being old and a feared to die. That's the way it is, cradle to grave, and you can stand it. There's just one way: you gotta be hardy. You gotta be. You can't deserve the sweet and tender in life unless'n you're tough.

Laurey: Will?
Will Parker: Uh huh.
Laurey: Could you do something for me? Go and find Curly and tell him I'm here?
[crying]
Laurey: I wanna see Curly real bad.
[Curly enters the corral, puts hands on hips]
Laurey: I gotta see him real bad!
Curly: Then whyn't you turn around and look then, you crazy woman!
