And if you keep usin' that needle they'll take away your music and put you in *jail!* Is that what you want?

Della Bea Robinson

Queen Elizabeth II: [to her husband] Have you heard from the Spencers on what they wish to do with the funeral?
HM The Queen Mother: Oh no, no one tells me anything.

Somebody'll fetch you when the bus gets to St. Augustine. When your there, show 'em this. Tell them your name is Ray Charles Robinson. An' the sandwiches I made, don't eat them all at once... ya hear me?

Aretha Robinson

Sleeping in the streets and pulling out their hair for someone they never knew. And they think we're mad!

Prince Philip

Will someone please save these people from themselves!

Tony Blair

Prince Philip: It's not fair!
Queen Elizabeth II: Yes, and further discussion would not be helpful.

Young Ray Robinson: Mama... please don't make me go away. I'll keep up with the normal kids. I'll be good, just like George.
Aretha Robinson: This got nothin' to do with George... I've taken you as far as I can, baby. The teachers at St. Augustine know things I can't teach you. An' you need an education in this world.

Portrait Artist: You may not be allowed to vote, ma'am, but it is your government.
Queen Elizabeth II: Yes. I suppose that is some consolation.

Quincy Jones: Say, daddy-o, what axe you play?
Ray Charles: Uh, piano. Just blew in from Tampa, Florida. Me and my partner, Gossie McGee, came here, you know, want to fatten up our style. Cop some licks from some more experienced cats, you dig?
Quincy Jones: You know what? Why don't you let me take you inside? You know, show you around.
Ray Charles: All right. Perfect gentleman.

Queen Elizabeth II: Have we shown you how to start a nuclear war yet?
Tony Blair: Uh, no.
Queen Elizabeth II: No? First thing we do, apparently. Then we take away your passport and spend the rest of the time sending you around the world.

Charles, dear, use the royal flight. They keep one plane on permanent stand-by, in case I should kick the bucket.

The Queen Mother

Della Bea Robinson: Let me call you a cab.
Ray Charles: I got it. Three blocks up, left for two, right for one, 15 giant steps and I'm at the Crystal White Hotel. Hello!
