Mary Poppins (1964) Poster


Hermione Baddeley: Ellen - Maid


  • Mr. Banks : Shut the window. That bird is giving me a headache.

    Ellen : Yes sir.

    [to the bird] 

    Ellen : Quiet! You're giving the master a headache!

  • Mrs. Banks : Oh, George, you didn't jump into the river. How sensible of you!

    [Mr. Banks kisses her] 

    Constable Jones : [into phone]  It's all right, sir, he's been found! No, *alive*! Or so I presume, he's a-kissin' the Mrs. Banks.

    Mrs. Banks : I've been so worried, what happened at the ba...

    [Mr. Banks picks her up and whirls her around] 

    Mr. Banks : I've been sacked! Discharged! Flung into the street!


    Mr. Banks : A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down! Tra-la-laaa-lalalalala!

    Ellen : Gone off his crumpet, that's what he's done. Dotty as you please.

  • Ellen : Coo, there's a whole queue of nannies outside, sir. Shall I show them in?

    Mr. Banks : Ellen, I said 8:00 and 8:00 it shall jolly well be. You see? 12 seconds to go. 10... 9... 8...

    Mrs. Banks : Posts! 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1!

    Mr. Banks : Ellen, it is now 8:00.

    Ellen : Yes, sir.

    Mr. Banks : I have told you time and time again, Ellen, that I dislike being hurried into things.

  • Ellen : It wouldn't hurt to have them drag the river. There's a nice spot there by Suffolk Bridge, popular with jumpers.

    Mrs. Banks : Really, Ellen?

  • Mr. Banks : [Banks is unaware that the other nannies have disappeared]  Ellen?

    Ellen : Yes, sir?

    Mr. Banks : Tell the other applicants they may go, the position has been filled.

    Ellen : The others, sir?

    Mr. Banks : Yes, the others! How many nannies does she think we need in this house?

    [Ellen opens the door; the only one outside is the dog Andrew] 

    Ellen : [to Andrew]  The position has been filled.

  • Ellen : [Seeing Mr. Banks laughing and hilarious after being sacked]  Gone off his crumpet, that's what he's done. Dotty as you please.
