What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) Poster

Quotes

Blanche: You wouldn't be able to do these awful things to me if I weren't still in this chair.

Jane: But you *are*, Blanche! You *are* in that chair!

Blanche: Who was that at the door earlier?

Jane: Elvira.

Blanche: Where is she now? In the kitchen?

Jane: No, I gave her the day off. She has a pretty hard time considering. I told her to come back next week.

Jane: [pauses] Oh, Blanche? You know we've got rats in the cellar?

Jane: I've written a letter to Daddy / His address is Heaven above / I've written "Dear Daddy, we miss you / And wish you were with us to love" / Instead of a stamp I put kisses / The postman says that's best to do / I've written a letter to Daddy / Saying "I love you" / Now when I'm very good, and do as I am told / I'm Mama's little angel and Papa says I'm good as gold / Now when I'm very bad and answer back and sass / Then I'm Mama's little devil, and Papa says I've got the brass / Now I wish that you would tell me / Cos I'm much too young to know...

Jane: I didn't bring your breakfast, because you didn't eat your din-din!

Dr. Shelby: I don't quite understand. Is this some kind of emotional disturbance you're talking about?

Blanche: Yes, she's emotionally disturbed. She's unbalanced!

Blanche: Did you have a nice drive?

Jane: What are you talking about?

Blanche: Nothing dear, I... it's been so long since you were out of the house I thought perhaps you had gone for a drive or something. You know I was thinking, it's ever so long since we had a talk, you know, a real talk about the future and everything. Jane, I didn't want you to be worried about the house, even if I do have to sell it, we'll still be together.

Jane: Blanche you're not gonna sell this house. Daddy bought this house, and he bought it for me! You don't think I remember that, do you?

Blanche: You're wrong, Jane. You've just forgotten. I bought this house for the two of us, when I signed my first contract.

Jane: You don't think I remember anything, do you? There are a whole lot of things I remember. And you never paid for this house. Baby Jane Hudson made the money that paid for this house, that's who!

Blanche: You don't know what you're saying.

Jane: Blanche, you aren't ever gonna sell this house... and you aren't ever gonna leave it... either.

Blanche: Why are you doing this to me? WHY?

Jane: You mean all this time we could have been friends?

Elvira Stitt: [shocked at some obscenities Jane has scrawled] I can't remember the last time I saw words like that written down!

Jane: I don't want to talk about it! Everytime I think about something nice, you remind me of bad things. I only want to talk about the nice things.

Blanche: [Upon hanging up the phone after discovering Jane is right behind her] That... that was...

Jane: I know who it was!

Blanche: No, Jane, it really was!
