There's no place like home. There's no place like home.

Dorothy

Dorothy: Do you suppose we'll meet any wild animals?
Tin Woodsman: Mm, we might.
Scarecrow: Animals that eat... s-traw?
Tin Woodsman: Some, but mostly lions, and tigers, and bears.
Dorothy: Lions?
Scarecrow: And tigers?
Tin Woodsman: And bears.

Back home everyone said I didn't have any talent. They might be saying the same thing over here but it sounds better in French.

Jerry Mulligan

I'm a concert pianist. That's a pretentious way of saying I'm... unemployed at the moment.

Adam Cook

It's not a pretty face, I grant you, but underneath its flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.

Adam Cook

[Jerry, Henri Baurel and Adam are at the café, talking. Adam desperately tries to prevent the other two men from revealing to each other they love the same woman by distracting them] Did I ever tell you about the time I gave a command performance for Hitler?

Adam Cook

This is Paris, and I'm an American who lives here. My name is Jerry Mulligan, and I'm an ex G.I. In 1945 when the army told me to find my own job, I stayed on. And I'll tell you why

Jerry Mulligan

Jerry, don't let me leave you this way.

Lise Bouvier

What gets me is, I don't know anything about her. We manage to be together for a few moments and then off she goes. Sometimes we have a wonderful time together and other times it's no fun at all. But I got to be with her.

Jerry Mulligan

Well, uh, with a binding like you've got, people are going to want to know what's in the book.

Jerry Mulligan

Jerry, if it means anything to you, I love you.

Lise Bouvier

She's one of those third year girls who gripe my liver... You know, American college kids. They come over here to take their third year and lap up a little culture... They're officious and dull. They're always making profound observations they've overheard.
