Hidden Figures (2016)
Octavia Spencer: Dorothy Vaughan
Dorothy Vaughan : Separate and equal are two different things. Just 'cause it's the way, doesn't make it right, understand?
Dorothy Vaughan : If you act right - you are right. That's for certain.
Dorothy Vaughan : [Repeated line to the IBM computer as she gets it to work] Atta girl.
Dorothy Vaughan : [At a church picnic, speaking about Colonel Jim Johnson while fixing plates at the food table] I hear he's planning on staying in the area.
Katherine Johnson : Well... Well, that's good for him.
Mary Jackson : [Looking at Colonel Johnson, who is talking with a group of men] Katherine, go find your way over there. That Colonel Jim is a tall glass of water.
Dorothy Vaughan : That he is. Tall, strong, commanding.
Katherine Johnson : Oh...
Mary Jackson : And I bet he's like that day and night.
Katherine Johnson : Mary, it's Sunday.
Katherine Johnson : Please have some shame.
Mary Jackson : I will not.
Dorothy Vaughan : Hmm, I think he's smiling over here.
Mary Jackson : At you.
Katherine Johnson : [Katherine turns, sees the colonel watching her, smiles, and turns back to the table] Well, I'm not smiling back.
Dorothy Vaughan : Yes, you are.
Mary Jackson : Oh, child. You are all teeth right now.
Katherine Johnson : I am not.
Mary Jackson : [Waving at the colonel to come over while mouthing] Come over here and say hi.
Dorothy Vaughan : [Colonel Johnson leaves the men, walking toward the ladies] He's coming over.
Katherine Johnson : Now why would he be doing that?
Dorothy Vaughan : 'Cause Mary's been waving at him.
Katherine Johnson : No! Ladies I am not ready.
Mary Jackson : It's too late. Fix your hair.
Dorothy Vaughan : [Colonel Johnson joins the ladies, Katherine turns around] Hello, Colonel. I'm Dorothy Vaughn. That's Mary Jackson. I believe you met her husband Levi.
Colonel Jim Johnson : Yes ma'am. Good to meet y'all.
Dorothy Vaughan : And Mrs. Katherine Goble.
Mary Jackson : She's not married. She's a widow, with three beautiful little girls. So well behaved. Angels on earth is what we like to call them. Dorothy, slice of pie?
Dorothy Vaughan : I'd love one. Excuse me.
[Dorothy and Mary begin to walk away]
Katherine Johnson : You already have a slice of pie, Doroth-...
Dorothy Vaughan : Uh-huh.
Dorothy Vaughan : Now don't get me wrong, any upward movement is movement for us all.
