The Josephine Baker Story (1991 TV Movie)
Josephine Baker: What am I most ashamed of in my life? Not keeping my promise to my sister and being too scared of America to attend her funeral.
Josephine Baker: Stop that man! You stop! You called me a nigger! You said you didn't want to sit alongside a nigger! Well, I don't know if you know it, but there are laws against that! Call the police and tell them I am making a citizen's arrest now!
Josephine Baker: [after being told she must use the hotel's back entrance] Now I know I'm home.
Josephine's Mother: [after Josephine is exiled from America] Let's get one thing straight from the get-go: I ain't learning no French.
Josephine Baker: One dance had made me the most famous colored woman in the world.
Josephine Baker: [after her show becomes a critical failure in America] You did this to me.
Count Giuseppe Pepito Abatino: I gave you Broadway. How could I know?
Josephine Baker: You gave me Broadway to keep me busy because you know there's nothing between us anymore!
Count Giuseppe Pepito Abatino: No, I love you.
Josephine Baker: You don't love me! You worship me. That's not the same thing. You worship me because you think you made me!
Count Giuseppe Pepito Abatino: [pointing to Josephine's heart] How can you say there's nothing in here? I have nothing but you.
Josephine Baker: And I can't live with that anymore! I was right. I was right! I never should have come back here. Especially with you! Especially with *you*!
Josephine's Mother: No one's ever been able to tell that girl anything... least of all me.
