The Barefoot Contessa (1954)
Drunken blonde: [of Maria Vargas] She hasn't even got what I've got.
Jerry: What she's got you couldn't spell - and what you've got, you used to have.
Harry Dawes: "Life, every now and then, behaves as though it had seen too many bad movies, when everything fits too well - the beginning, the middle, the end - from fade-in to fade-out."
Alberto Bravano: [to Kirk Edwards] How many millions have you in tax-exempt bonds, and oil wells whose power of production your government so generously protects, while it denies similar benefits to the human brain?
Kirk Edwards: You've never done an honest day's work in your life!
Alberto Bravano: I *have* never done a day's work in my life - honest OR dishonest, but neither have you... To make 100 dollars into 110 dollars, this is work. To make 100 million into 110 million, this is inevitable.
Harry Dawes: Her name is Jerry.
Maria Vargas: She has the name of a man.
Harry Dawes: That's where the similarities end.
Alberto Bravano: To make a hundred dollars into a hundred and ten dollars - this is work. To make a hundred million into a hundred and ten million, this is inevitable.
Drunken blonde: I don't even believe you're playing Pinochle.
Alberto Bravano: [to Kirk Edwards at the party] Take a drink, my friend, and say what you have in your heart. But you never drink. You never say. Because you are afraid of what you have in your heart!
Count Vincenzo Torlato-Favrini: It is time for the Torlato-Favrinis to get off the world.
Eleanora Torlato-Favrini: The fact remains that we are neither unique nor important to the world. And it will go on without us.
Oscar Muldoon: You mean they're throwing punches?
Jerry: Don't be silly - neither one of them has had his hands closed since the day he was born!
Harry Dawes: I have a sixth sense that any witch in the world would give her left broomstick to have.
Maria Vargas: Can you teach me to act?
Harry Dawes: If you can act, I can help you. If you can't nobody can teach you.
