Queen Elizabeth: [Using the name "Mrs. Johnson"] My husband's work involves a great deal of public speaking.
Lionel Logue: Then he should change jobs.
Queen Elizabeth: He can't.
Lionel Logue: What is he, an indentured servant?
Queen Elizabeth: Something like that.

Lionel Logue: [as George "Berty" is lighting up a cigarette] Don't do that in here.
King George VI: Why not?
Lionel Logue: Sucking smoke into your lungs will kill you.
King George VI: My physicians tell me it helps to relax the throat.
Lionel Logue: They're idiots.
King George VI: They've been knighted.
Lionel Logue: Makes it official then.

If I am King, where is my power? Can I declare war? Form a government? Levy a tax? No! And yet I am the seat of all authority because they think that when I speak, I speak for them.

King George VI

Lionel Logue: Do you know the "f" word?
King George VI: Ffff... fornication?

Chiles Stanton: Oh, hi Beau.
Beau Hutton: It would have been easier to wish me luck.
Chiles Stanton: I'm on board. I'm playing three songs tonight.
Beau Hutton: Says who?
Chiles Stanton: I happen to be in consideration as the new opening act for Miss Kelly Canter. James, my new manager, booked me this gig as a rehearsal... not that I need it.
Beau Hutton: Clint, tell me Garth Brooks here is not opening for me.
Clint: She's not, she's closing for you. Can't do nothing about it either.
Beau Hutton: This is your place, you can tell her no.
Clint: Not for James Canter, I can't.
Beau Hutton: You're gonna let this prom queen get up on stage? For Christ's, sake, Patsy Cline sang here.
Clint: I don't care, she's still gonna play. I'm not cutting your set, Beau, you got the same three songs.
Chiles Stanton: Don't worry, Beau. I have no intention of stealing your invisible career. See, I want one.

James Canter: The first time I heard you sing... I thought that it must be what angels sound like. Thought I died and gone to heaven.
Kelly Canter: I love that story.
James Canter: 'Cause it's true.

Chiles Stanton: Hello James! Hi, Mrs. Kelly! Would you mind signing this for me, please?
Kelly Canter: Sure!
Chiles Stanton: Thank you so much! If you have any advice for a young artist such as myself, I'd love to hear it.
Kelly Canter: K: Oh, I have some advice.
[writes on the cover of the CD: "Stay away from my husband"]
Chiles Stanton: And James is being so helpful! I won't sell it on e-Bay or anything, I've just been a fan of yours since I was a little girl.
Kelly Canter: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Chiles Stanton: [to James] This is amazing, James! It's so beautiful, I don't even wanna pee in the toilet! Aaaah!
James Canter: You didn't think this is for you, did you?
Chiles Stanton: No! No! God, no.
James Canter: Okay. See you in Houston.

[to Chiles] That's how it's done, sweetheart.

Kelly Canter

Don't be afraid to fall in love. It's the only thing that matters in life.

Kelly Canter

Reporter: Chiles, who is your idol?
Chiles Stanton: Kelly Canter and Jesus Christ.
Beau Hutton: [to Kelly] You and Jesus Christ, who would have thought?
Kelly Canter: They love her.

I enjoy playing music, I don't care who it's for.

Beau Hutton

Beau's Mother: So you're opening for the looney tunes? They need to lock that one up and throw away the key.
Beau Hutton: She's not crazy.
