The Parent Trap (1961) Poster

Hayley Mills: Susan Evers, Sharon McKendrick



  • Susan's roommate at camp Inch : The nerve of her! Coming here with your face!

    Susan's other roommate : What are you gonna do about it?

    Susan Evers : Do? What in heaven's sake can I do, silly?

    Susan's other roommate : I'd bite off her nose. Then she wouldn't look like you.

  • Susan Evers : Do you want to know Father? And I'm just dying to know Mother. It might be so scary that we just might be able to pull it off.

    Sharon McKendrick : Pull what off?

    Susan Evers : Switch places!

    Sharon McKendrick : Switch?

    Susan Evers : We can do it. We're twins, aren't we? Oh, I'm just dying to know Mother! Look, now I'M getting goosebumps!

    Sharon McKendrick : Me, too. You know something? There's more to it than just switching places. I believe fate brought us together.

    Susan Evers : How so?

    Sharon McKendrick : If we switched, sooner or later, they'd have to unswitch us.

    Susan Evers : Mother would have to bring me to California to unmix us.

    Sharon McKendrick : And they'd have to meet again.

    Susan Evers : Face-to-face. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

    Sharon McKendrick : Exactly.

    Susan Evers : Let's get to work!

  • Charles McKendrick : [Susan starts sniffing the coat he is wearing]  My dear, what are you doing?

    Susan Evers : Making a memory.

    Charles McKendrick : Making a memory?

    Susan Evers : All my life, when I'm quite grown-up I will always remember my grandfather and how he smelled of

    [smells his jacket again] 

    Susan Evers : tobacco and peppermint.

    Charles McKendrick : Smelled of tobacco and peppermint.

    [starts chuckling] 

    Charles McKendrick : Well, I'll tell you what. I take the peppermint for my indigestion and as for the tobacco

    [looks around] 

    Charles McKendrick : to make your grandmother mad.

  • Ursala, Camp Inch roomate : What if we get some ants, and when she comes by the window, we dump them down her dress?

    Sharon McKendrick : Impractical.

    Betsy - Sharon's Camp Inch Roommate : Where are we gonna find ants at night, Stupid?

    Ursala, Camp Inch roomate : Ooh, the three of them! I'm so mad I could just spit!

  • Sharon McKendrick : [looks at Susan putting up a picture on the wall]  Who's that?

    Susan Evers : [turns to her surprised]  Are you kidding? Ricky Nelson?

    Sharon McKendrick : Oh, your boyfriend.

    Susan Evers : [a choked laugh is forced out]  I wish he was! You mean you've never heard of him? Where do ya come from? Outer space?

  • Vicky Robinson : [after two little bear cubs licks Vicky's foot with honey, she wakes up screaming]  Oh! Oh! Get me out of here! Get me out of here! Let me out!


    Vicky Robinson : Let me out of here! Get them away from me! Get those wild animals out!


    Vicky Robinson : Get them away! Get them out! I hate them! Get them away from me, Get them away from me! I hate this... I hate this place! I hate this filthy stinking dirty place!

    Hecky : [Then Vicky Robinson comes out of her tent tangled in stings]  What are you yelling about Miss? It's just... Just litty-bitty old bear cubs, they wouldn't hurt a fly.

    Vicky Robinson : You shut up and get me my boots!

    [throws the coffee can at Hecky and misses] 

    Hecky : Yes, ma'am.

    [Vicky vandalizes the camp and breaks the fishing rod and knocks down camping equipment] 

    Vicky Robinson : Ohh, I hate this place! This may be somebody's idea of fun! But, It's not mine! I hate the fish, I hate the lake! I hate the bees, I hate the filthy bugs! I can't stand it! I want to go back to Central Park East!

    [Mitch runs up to Vicky] 

    Mitch Evers : What the heck are you doing with the food? What's the matter, what's happening?

    Vicky Robinson : You big overgrown jerk, it's not worth it!

    [She pushes Mitch and he falls over her tent. Sharon and Susan runs up to Vicky] 

    Sharon McKendrick : Do you want your clothes, Vicky?

    Vicky Robinson : Thanks a heap! You, you're twins! Do you share everything?

    [Vicky takes the bag of clothes] 

    Sharon McKendrick : Everything.

    Susan Evers : Everything.

    Vicky Robinson : Well, you give your sister her half for this!

    [slap Susan Evers in the face] 

    Mitch Evers : Hey, wait a minute, there's no cause for that. They didn't do anything to you!

    Vicky Robinson : You never know what they did to me, you big goon! Get me out of this stinking fresh air!

    [Vicky and Mitch hike down the hill back to the truck] 

  • Sharon McKendrick : [while Mitch thinks she's Susan]  My nails, I bit them all because of you! And my hair! Look at my hair! I cut it off just for you! Of all the pigheaded fathers!

  • Susan Evers : [pretending to be Sharon while saying goodbye to Miss Inch]  I shan't tell my aunt about the ants nor the debutantes. Shall I?

  • Vicky Robinson : You're a big girl now, Susan. You're old enough to understand that wonderful, delicate mystery that happens sometimes between a man and a woman.

    Sharon McKendrick : I know what wonderful, delicate mystery Daddy sees in you. And I can't say I blame him there, either. You're very nicely put together.

    Vicky Robinson : Your father underestimates you, I think.

    Sharon McKendrick : I'm sure you won't, will you, Vicky?

    Vicky Robinson : Susan, dear, you've had him to yourself all this time, and I can understand that suddenly to have another woman around, well, it's a tremendous intrusion. But all my life, it seemed, I've hoped and waited for someone like him: someone gentle and mature, rough-edged, but quick to laugh, someone understanding and wise. All the things that I've come to love and cherish in him.

    Sharon McKendrick : Well, that's very refreshing.

    Vicky Robinson : Why, dear?

    Sharon McKendrick : Most girls just run after Daddy because he's so wealthy.

    Vicky Robinson : [angrily]  Are you inferring that I'd marry your father for his money?

    Sharon McKendrick : If the shoe fits, wear it!

    Vicky Robinson : Look, pet. I've tried to be friendly, but I'm going to marry your father, so you get used to the idea!

    Sharon McKendrick : You wanna bet?

    Vicky Robinson : Oh, honey, don't you play with the big girls. You'll be in way over your head.

  • Sharon McKendrick : 'Cos that's how true love creates its beautiful agony. All splendid lovers had just dreadful times! Er, Pelias and Melisande, Daphnis and Chloë. History's just jammed with stories of lovers parted by some silly thing!

  • Sharon McKendrick : [after telling her he's going to marry Vicky]  Don't you see, Dad, it's all relative. Compared to her, you're an old man.

    Mitch Evers : I am not an old man!

  • Miss Inch : Congratulations. In the history of this camp, that was the most infamous, the most disgusting, the most revolting display of hooliganism we have ever had.

    Miss Grunecker : Rolling around like hooligans in front of our guests.

    Miss Inch : And worst of all, two sisters who should be setting a good example.

    Susan Evers : We're not sisters!

    Sharon McKendrick : I've never seen HER before in my life.

    Miss Inch : They are! Aren't they?

    Miss Grunecker : No ma'am. Just look-alikes.

    Miss Inch : An amazing resemblance.
