Bell Book and Candle (1958)
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: That girl you know, Gillian Holroyd, she's one.
Merle Kittridge: A witch?
Merle Kittridge: Shep, you just never learned to spell.
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: Hasn't this cat got anything better to do? Couldn't you give him something to read?
Merle Kittridge: Are you trying to say you're... *jilting* me?
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: W-well, that's a very heavy word, Merle. It's a very heavy word. Let's just say that we're... uncoupling.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: Oh, Pye, Pye, Pyewacket. What's the matter with me? Why do I feel this way? It's such a rut. The same old thing day after day. Same old people. I know I'm feeling sorry for myself but it's true. Why don't you give me something for Christmas, Pye?
The Cat: Meow.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: What would I like?
The Cat: Meow.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: I'd like to do something different. I'd like to meet something different.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: [to Shep, who lives one floor above her] It's nice having you over me. I mean it's reassuring having a man around... in case he's needed.
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: She used a cat.
Queenie: I sit in the subway sometimes, on buses, or the movies, and I look at the people next to me and I think..."What would you say if I told you I was a witch?"
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: I may sound like a lunatic, but I'm not crazy!
Nicky Holroyd: You know what it says on Love Potions... shake well but don't tell.
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: [At the Zodiac; Shep referring to Mrs. De Passe] You won't catch her at El Morocco.
Merle Kittridge: She looks like she's been living in a pickle barrel.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: But what on earth are you doing with Pyewacket?
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: Somebody gave him my address.
Parrot: You're a fool! Who's a fool? You're a fool!
[Last lines. Shep Henderson is surprised when Gillian breaks down in tears, since he knows that witches can't cry]
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: How did it happen?
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: It just happened. It does sometimes.
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: No, it only happens one way. The story is that it only happens if you fall in love. And it's been happening to me too, Gil. Ever since I walked in here. Only it's real this time.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: [kisses him] Oh, Shep!
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: Or has it been real all along? Who's to say what magic is? Oh, Gil, don't you want to stop crying now?
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: I don't think I can. I'm only human.
Sidney Redlitch: Ring the bell, close the book, quench the candle. That's how they used to excorcise them.
Gillian 'Gil' Holroyd: Shep... I have always lived for and by the special. Not the ordinary. Why, I've never even *thought* of marriage.
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: [responding to Redlitch's hint for "a little post-Christmas cheer"] Oh, certainly... Scotch? Bourbon?
Sidney Redlitch: Uh, it doesn't make any difference.
Shepherd 'Shep' Henderson: [Redlitch gestures to Shep for another drink] Oh sure, go ahead.
Sidney Redlitch: [handing Tina his empty glass] Uh, what was that?
Tina - Shep's Secretary: Scotch.
Sidney Redlitch: Make this one bourbon, would you?
