Oh, I see, young people in love are never hungry.

Danker

[drinking a toast] Well, here's to the merry-go-round.

Ellie Andrews

We'll get on a merry-go-round and never get off. Promise me we'll never get off.

Ellie Andrews

Oscar Shapeley: Believe you me!
Ellie Andrews: Believe you me, you bore me to distraction.

Peter Warne: Just keep your eye on that thumb.
Ellie Andrews: Still got my eye on the thumb. Peter Warne: Something must have happened. I'll try number 2.
Ellie Andrews: Well, wake me up when you get to 100.

That's the way things go

Joe Gordon

You're a sucker to go through with this. That guy Warne is OK. He didn't want the reward. All he asked for was $39.60, what he spent on you. Said it was a matter of principle. You took him for a ride. He loves you, Ellie. He told me so. You don't want to be married to a mug like Westley; I can buy him off for a pot of gold. And you can make an old man happy and you won't do so bad for yourself. If you change your mind, your car's waiting at the back gate.

Alexander Andrews

I want to see what love looks like when it's triumphant. I haven't had a good laugh in a week.

Peter Warne

You know, I had you pegged right from the jump. Just a spoiled brat of a rich father. The only way you get anything is to buy it, isn't it? You're in a jam and all you can think of is your money. It never fails, does it? Ever hear of the word humility? No, you wouldn't. I guess it would never occur to you to just say, 'Please mister, I'm in trouble, will you help me?' No, that would bring you down off your high horse for a minute. Well, let me tell you something, maybe it will take a load off your mind. You don't have to worry about me. I'm not interested in your money or your problem. You, King Westley, your father. You're all a lot of hooey to me!

Peter Warne

Ellie Andrews: Aren't you gonna congratulate me?
Peter Warne: What for?
Ellie Andrews: Well, I proved once and for all that the limb is mightier than the thumb.

Ellie Andrews: I'll stop a car, and I won't use my thumb!
Peter Warne: What're you gonna do?
Ellie Andrews: It's a system all my own.

It Happened One Night Quotes

Don't fall out of any windows!

Alexander Andrews

I never did like the idea of sitting on newspapers. I did it once, and all the headlines came off on my white pants. On the level! It actually happened. Nobody bought a paper that day. They just followed me around over town and read the news on the seat of my pants.
