You Can't Take It with You (1938) Poster

Quotes

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Maybe it'd stop you trying to be so desperate about making more money than you can ever use? You can't take it with you, Mr. Kirby. So what good is it? As near as I can see, the only thing you can take with you is the love of your friends.

[last lines]

Grandpa Martin Vanderhof: [offering grace] Quiet, please, quiet! Well, sir, here we are again. We've had quite a time of it lately, but it seems that the worst of it is over. Course, the fireworks all blew up, but we can't very well blame that on you. Anyway, everything's turned out fine, as it usually does. Alice is going to marry Tony; Mr. Kirby, who's turned out to be a very good egg, sold us back our house - he'll probably forget all about big deals for a while. Nobody on our block has to move; and, with the right handling, I think we can even thaw out Mrs. Kirby here. We've all got our health; as far as anything else is concerned, we still leave that up to you. Thank you. Bring it on, Reba!

Grandpa Martin Vanderhof: Lincoln said, "With malice toward none, with charity to all." Nowadays they say, "Think the way I do or I'll bomb the daylights outta you."

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Penny, why don't you write a play about Ism-Mania?

Penny Sycamore: Ism-Mania?

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Yeah, sure, you know, Communism, Fascism, Voodooism, everybody's got an -ism these days.

Penny Sycamore: Oh

[laughs]

Penny Sycamore: I thought it was an itch or something.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Well, it's just as catching. When things go a little bad nowadays, you go out, get yourself an -ism and you're in business.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: [offering grace] Well, Sir, here we are again. We've been getting along pretty good for quite a while now - we're certainly much obliged. Remember all we ask is just to go along the way we are, keep our health; as far as anything else is concerned, we leave that up to you. Thank you.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: You're an idiot, Mr. Kirby.

Anthony P. Kirby: What?

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: A stupid idiot.

Anthony P. Kirby: You can't talk to me like that.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Oh, yes I can. Scum, are we? What makes you think you're such a superior human being? Your money? If you do, you're a dull-witted fool, Mr. Kirby. And a poor one at that. You're poorer than any of these people you call scum, because I'll guarantee at least they've got some friends. While you with your jungle and your long claws, as you call 'em, you'll wind up your miserable existence without anything you can call friend. You may be a high mogul to yourself, Mr. Kirby, but to me you're a failure - failure as a man, failure as a human being, even a failure as a father. When your time comes, I doubt if a single tear will be shed over you. The world will probably cry, "Good riddance." That's a nice prospect, Mr. Kirby. I hope you'll enjoy it. I hope you'll get some comfort out of all this coin you've been sweating over then!

Tony Kirby: Your family, boy, they knocked me for a loop. I don't know, it just seems like in their own way, they found what everybody's looking for. People spend their whole lives building castles in the air and then nothing ever comes of it. I wonder why that is? Well, it takes courage. Everybody's afraid to live.

Alice Sycamore: You ought to hear Grandpa on that subject. He says most people nowadays are run by fear. Fear of what they eat, fear of what they drink, fear of their jobs, their future, fear of their health. They're scared to save money and scared to spend it. You know what his pet aversion is? The people who commercialize on fear, you know they scare you to death so they can sell you something you don't need. So, he kinda taught all of not to be afraid of anything, but do what we want to do. Well, its kinda fun, anyway.

Tony Kirby: You do, huh?

Alice Sycamore: Mmmhm

Tony Kirby: I see. Yeah, that's probably the first thing you noticed about me that you liked - my colossal brain.

Alice Sycamore: Well, no. No, it was the back of your head.

Tony Kirby: The back of my head? I've got a big bump back there. Well, what happened when I turned around?

Alice Sycamore: Well, I figured I'd just have to get used to that.

Tony Kirby: Oh, you figured.

Alice Sycamore: And, you know, it might not take very long, but I just figured I'd...

Tony Kirby: [phone rings. Tony won't let go of Alice's hands] You know, it's a strange sensation - I seem to hear ringing in my ears.

Alice Sycamore: Me, too. And I thought for a moment it was the telephone.

Tony Kirby: Yeah. I hear voices, too. Voices that say, if you don't kiss her soon, you're a chump.

Alice Sycamore: You know, if I were really clever, I could answer the phone without the use of my hands.

Tony Kirby: Saw it done in a circus once.

Neighbor: Did you hear about it, Grandpa? We maybe all have to move.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Who said so?

Maggie O'Neill: Well everybody's talking about it, somebody's buying up everything.

Neighbor: I hear they're buying it up for a big factory or something.

Schmidt: My landlord told me he wouldn't have sold only they offered him so much money.

Neighbor: Nobody wants to move, Grandpa, you know that.

Neighbor: We just put up some shelves, cost $60.

Neighbor: I've been here for 20 years.

Mrs. Schmidt: I think we should see somebody.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Now wait just a minute, don't get excited. We've all been neighbors for a long time, I know that. But if they're buying this property up for a factory, they'll need every foot of ground, won't they?

Neighbor: I guess so.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Well now suppose I won't sell them my place, what're they going to do?

Neighbor: That's right, you own your place.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Sure I do.

Neighbor: And they're going to need it too, won't they?

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: You bet they will, and it'll take more than money to make me sell my property. Now go on back to work, stop cluttering up the street, we'll all be arrested.

Tony Kirby: We can't just pop out of the building with no place to go. Very bad idea that, you know. I know two people that did that once - they went out of the building, they were uncertain, so they just walked and walked and walked and finally they just died... of hunger. Now you wouldn't want anything like that to happen... because if, if that happened... you're so beautiful.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Now, Mr. Vanderhoff, that's a very serious thing, not filing an income tax return.

Wilbur G. Henderson, IRS Agent: Now, suppose I do pay you this money; mind you, I don't say that I'm going to, but, just for the sake of argument; what's the government going to do with it?

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: What do you mean?

Wilbur G. Henderson, IRS Agent: Well, what do I get for my money? For instance, if I go into a department store and buy something, why, there it is! I can see it. Well, what are they gonna give me?

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Why the government gives you everything! It protects you!

Wilbur G. Henderson, IRS Agent: From what?

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Well, invasion! How do you think the government's gonna keep up the army and navy with all those battleships?

Wilbur G. Henderson, IRS Agent: Battleships? The last time we used battleships was in the Spanish-American War. And what did we get out of that? Cuba - and we gave that back. Why, I wouldn't mind paying for something sensible.

Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Something sensible? What about Congress and the Supreme Court and the President? We gotta pay them, don't we?

Wilbur G. Henderson, IRS Agent: Not with my money! No, sir.

Tony Kirby: There's a tiny little engine in the green of this grass and in the green of the trees that has the mysterious gift of being able to take energy from the rays of the sun and store it up. You see that that's how the heat and power in coal and oil and wood is stored up. Well, we thought if we could find the secret of all those millions of little engines in this green stuff, we could, we could make big ones! And then we could take all the power we could ever need, right from the sun's rays.

Alice Sycamore: I resent what you said about your brain. I think it's beautiful.

Tony Kirby: You do, huh?

Alice Sycamore: Mmmhm

Tony Kirby: I see. Yeah, that's probably the first thing you noticed about me that you liked - my colossal brain.

Alice Sycamore: Well, no. No, it was the back of your head.

Tony Kirby: The back of my head? I've got a big bump back there. Well, what happened when I turned around?

Alice Sycamore: Well, I figured I'd just have to get used to that.

Tony Kirby: Oh, you figured.

Alice Sycamore: And, you know, it might not take very long, but I just figured I'd...

Tony Kirby: ...you just figured you'd just... well, I'm glad you 'figured.'

Tony Kirby: [Phone rings. Tony won't let go of Alice's hands] You know, it's a strange sensation-I seem to hear ringing in my ears.

Alice Sycamore: Me, too. And I thought for a moment it was the telephone.

Tony Kirby: Yeah. I hear voices, too. Voices that say, if you don't kiss her soon, you're a chump.

Alice Sycamore: You know, if I were really clever, I could answer the phone without the use of my hands.

Tony Kirby: Saw it done in a circus once.

Tony Kirby: [Alice picks up receiver with her teeth] Hey, wonderful, you'd be a sensation on the trapeze!
