Jud Fry: Look at me. I`m a hired hand. I got dirt on my hands. Pig slop. I ain`t fit to touch you, am I - you`re better. Oh, you`re so much better, Miss Laurey Williams! Well we`ll see how much better you are, and then you won`t be so free and easy and hifalutin` with your airs! You such a FINE lady!
Ali Hakim: It`s a wonderful thing to be married. I got a brother in Persia got six wives. Ado Annie Carnes: Six wives all at once? Will Parker: Why, sure. That`s the way they do in them countries. Ali Hakim: Not always; I got a brother in Persia only got one wife. He`s a bachelor.
Ali Hakim: You`d hardly ever see your daughter no more! Carnes: That`d be all right. Just take care of her, son.
Ado Annie Carnes: He called me his Persian kitten! Carnes: what`d you call her that for? Ali Hakim: Ohh - I don`t remember... Ado Annie Carnes: I do! He said I`s like a Persian kitten cause they is the cats with the soft round tails! Carnes: (c*cking his gun) That`s enough. In this country that better be a proposal of marriage.
Will Parker: I don`t know what to make of you! You`re too purty to be a skunk! Too thin to be a snake! To little to be a man, and too big to be a mouse! I reckon you`re a rat! Ali Hakim: That`s logical.
Laurey: Curly! You`re sittin` on the stove! Curly: Yeouch! (Jumps up, feels the stove) Curly: Cold as a hunk of ice. Laurey: Wish it would`ve burned a hole in your pants.
Will Parker: Now that I got that fifty dollars, you name the date. Ado Annie Carnes: August 15th. Will Parker: Why August 15th? Ado Annie Carnes: Because that was the first day I`se kissed! Will Parker: Oh was it? I didn`t remember that! Ado Annie Carnes: You wasn`t there.
Ado Annie Carnes: Sometimes there seems like times that men ain`t got no need for women. Girl: There`s sometimes women ain`t got no need for men. Ado Annie Carnes: Yeah, but who wants to be dead?
Curly: If she liked me any more, she`d sic the dogs on me.
Ali Hakim: I wanted to marry her when I saw the moonlight shining on the barrel of her father`s shotgun.
