Quotes

Sabrina: More isn't always better, Linus. Sometimes it's just more.

David Larrabee: [as Linus & Maude board their chauffeured limo for the ride to work] You guys work Sundays now, huh?

Linus Larrabee: It's Wednesday, David.

David Larrabee: You're talking about my life.

Linus Larrabee: I pay for your life, David. My life makes your life possible.

David Larrabee: I resent that.

Linus Larrabee: So do I.

Linus Larrabee: David, where's Sabrina? You didn't go with her?

David Larrabee: Well obviously not, Linus, I mean, here I am, right? She's probably having her beverage service right about now.

Mrs. Ingrid Tyson: Who's Sabrina?

Patrick Tyson: The chauffeur's daughter!

Linus Larrabee: Don't call her that!

[David looks at him in amusement]

Elizabeth Tyson, MD: She was after David for a while, then apparently she switched to Linus. She seems to have decided that HE was the one with the power.

Linus Larrabee: [outraged, pointing to David] Is THAT what he told you?

Elizabeth Tyson, MD: He told me everything, Linus.

Linus Larrabee: [to David] And you didn't see her before she left? You didn't talk to her?

David Larrabee: Oh, sure, I said goodbye, and I think I wished her luck. Maybe not. I told her I felt kind of funny accepting my brother's hand-me-downs

[Maude covers her mouth to keep from smiling]

David Larrabee: , and I said don't take it personally, and you've always been generous to your women in the past, and I was sure she'd be more than compensated for... whatever!

[Linus punches him]

David Larrabee: See! I told you! He loves her!

Mrs. Ingrid Tyson: Who?

Patrick Tyson: Sabrina!

David Larrabee: [touching his mouth] Is he packed?

Mack: Yes.

Linus Larrabee: Is who packed?

Mack: You are. Just one bag.

Linus Larrabee: [flustered] Wait a minute, you - you packed my clothes? You went to my apartment?

Maude Larrabee: I took her!

Mack: We were up to our elbows in your underwear drawer; it was like touching the Shroud of Turin.

David Larrabee: Here, sign this. It's your authorization for the completion of the merger. AND this - it gives me the raise I deserve for the new position I'm assuming. There's a car waiting for you downstairs, a helicopter at East 60th... the plane ticket's been changed to the Concorde. It leaves in exactly 39 minutes. If you make it, you just might beat her there.

[Linus turns away in thought]

Elizabeth Tyson, MD: Go, Linus! Don't think!

Linus Larrabee: [hesitantly] She... she must absolutely hate me!

Maude Larrabee: She'll get over it. We all do... Linus, you know I love you. No mother could be prouder. But I think it's time that you ran away from home.

David Larrabee: But sign these first.

[Linus signs the forms and clasps David's shoulder]

Linus Larrabee: If you'll excuse me... it appears I have a previous engagement.

[leaves]

Linus Larrabee: Listen, I work in the real world with real responsibilities.

Sabrina: I know you work in the real world and you're very good at it. But that's work. Where do you live, Linus?

Linus Larrabee: So, that really is a beautiful name. How did you get it?

Sabrina: My father's reading. It's in a poem.

Linus Larrabee: Oh?

Sabrina: "Sabrina fair, listen where thou art sitting under the glassy, cool, translucent wave, in twisted braids of lilies knitting the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair."

Sabrina: [laughs to herself] It's an incredible airplane - it's beautiful. I've never seen anything like it.

Linus Larrabee: Ah, yes.

[returns to reading his work papers]

Sabrina: Don't you ever look out the window?

Linus Larrabee: When do I have time?

Sabrina: What happened to all that time we saved taking the helicopter?

Linus Larrabee: [lightheartedly] I'm storing it up.

Sabrina: [seriously] No, you're not.

Linus Larrabee: [pause] So, your little poem - what does it mean?

Sabrina: It's the story of a water sprite who saved a virgin from a fate worse than death.

Linus Larrabee: And Sabrina's the virgin.

Sabrina: [quietly] Sabrina's the savior.

Sabrina: You probably don't believe in marriage.

Linus Larrabee: Yes, I do. That's why I never got married. David, however, believes in the tooth fairy.

Sabrina: That's why I like him.

Linus Larrabee: Well, I like him too. As a matter of fact, I love him. I just don't know what to do with him.

Linus Larrabee: David, sit down.

David Larrabee: I can't talk right now, I have to be somewhere.

Linus Larrabee: Just sit down!

David Larrabee: [David sits and there is the sound of glass crunching] Owwwaaahhh!

Maude Larrabee: What?

David Larrabee: I sat on the glasses!

Linus Larrabee: Mother, go get Dr. Callaway. He's at the bar.

Maude Larrabee: Who put glasses on the chair?

David Larrabee: Can we talk about this later? I'm bleeding!

Maude Larrabee: Darling, don't worry, just elevate... something.

Linus Larrabee: So, what do they say about me?

Sabrina: Oh, you know...

Linus Larrabee: No.

Sabrina: That you're the world's only living heart donor.

Linus Larrabee: Oh, that.

Sabrina: And how does this one go? He thinks that morals are paintings on walls and scruples are money in Russia.

Linus Larrabee: How droll.

Sabrina: And then there's my favorite...

Linus Larrabee: No, that's ok.

Maude Larrabee: I feel terrible.

Linus Larrabee: Take a pill.

Maude Larrabee: Watch it. I'm still your mother.

Linus Larrabee: And you taught me everything I know.

Maude Larrabee: I didn't teach you this.

Sabrina: I thought it was all a lie.

Linus Larrabee: It was. It was a lie... but then it was a dream.

Maude Larrabee: David, you're like my own son.

David Larrabee: I am your own son, Mother.

Maude Larrabee: Exactly! Now, I endured twenty-one hours of hard labor to bring you into the world. The doctors begged me to take drugs, but I kept saying I wouldn't do anything to hurt my child. Well, I've changed my mind - you screw up with Elizabeth and I swear I'll kill you.

Linus Larrabee: Frank, listen, David can't stand pain so I want you to give him a combination of morphine and - I don't...

Frank, David's doctor (via telephone): [inaudible]

Linus Larrabee: Okay, not morphine, but something strong, and mixed with a sleeping tablet like Halcion.

Frank, David's doctor (via telephone): [inaudible]

Linus Larrabee: They haven't proved that, Frank.

Frank, David's doctor (via telephone): [inaudible]

Linus Larrabee: Uh, we have no idea. Maude thinks they were left on the chair by some guest.

Frank, David's doctor (via telephone): [inaudible]

Linus Larrabee: He's not gonna sue his own mother.

Frank, David's doctor (via telephone): [inaudible]

Linus Larrabee: [indignant] Well, he's not me!

Louis: [Louis and Sabrina are kissing] I'm in Paris but you are somewhere else.

Sabrina: I'm sorry, Louis... I shouldn't have done this.

Louis: I would like to help. But what you have to fix, you won't fix it in bed. You have to fix it *here*.

[pointing to her head]

Linus Larrabee: Go ahead, say it.

Fairchild: You don't deserve her.

Linus Larrabee: I don't, I know that; but I need her, and I don't need anything.

Linus Larrabee: And I want tickets to whatever Broadway show nobody can get tickets to.

[Mack looks inquisitively at him]

Linus Larrabee: I know, I seldom go to the theatre.

Mack: Seldom?

Linus Larrabee: So, I'm not a theatre buff.

Mack: Buff? The most difficult tickets to get will be for a Broadway musical.

Linus Larrabee: [distractedly] Okay.

Mack: That means that the performers will periodically dance about and burst into song.

Sabrina: Once upon a time, on the north shore of Long Island, not far from New York, there was a very, very large mansion, almost a castle. And on this very large estate lived a small girl. And life was pleasant there and very, very simple. But, then one day, the girl grew up and went beyond the walls of the grounds and found the world.

[first lines]

Sabrina: Once upon a time, on the north shore of Long Island, not far from New York, there was a very very large mansion, almost a castle, where there lived a family by the name of Larrabee. There were servants inside the mansion, and servants outside the mansion; boatmen to tend the boats, and six crews of gardeners: two for the solarium, the rest for the grounds, and a tree surgeon on retainer. There were specialists for the indoor tennis courts, and the outdoor tennis courts, the outdoor swimming pool, and the indoor swimming pool. And over the garage there lived a chauffeur by the name of Fairchild, imported from England years ago, together with a Rolls Royce; and a daughter, named Sabrina.

David Larrabee: What? How could I have forgotten? Was it the champagne?

Sabrina: I was eight, and you were taking dancing lessons. I was homework.
