I shall miss all of you. I shall miss the money I could have made with you!

Max

Friedrich von Trapp: I'm Friedrich. I'm fourteen. I'm impossible!
Maria: [laughing] Really? Who told you that, Friedrich?
Friedrich von Trapp: Fraulein Josephine, four governesses ago.

Marta: I'm Marta, and I'm going to be seven on Tuesday, and I'd like a pink parasol.
Maria: Well, pink's my favorite color, too.

Liesl: [singing with the children at the Villa] So long, farewell, au revoir, auf Wiedersehen! I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne. Yes?
Captain von Trapp: No!

[singing starts somewhere inside]
Captain von Trapp: What's that?
Maria: It's singing.
Captain von Trapp: Yes, I realize it's singing, but who?
Maria: The children.
Captain von Trapp: The children?
Maria: I taught them something to sing for the Baroness.

I haven't had so much fun since the day we put glue on Fräulein Josephine's toothbrush.

Kurt

You know how Sister Berthe always makes me kiss the floor after we've had a disagreement? Well, lately I've taken to kissing the floor whenever I see her coming, just to save time.

Maria

Max: Hold on. What's so funny?
Captain von Trapp: You are, Max. Expensive, but very funny.

The Baroness: You're far away. Where are you?
Captain von Trapp: In a world that's disappearing, I'm afraid.

[singing] Silver white winters that melt into springs, these are a few of my favorite things.

Maria

When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.

Maria

Captain von Trapp: They haven't complained yet.
Maria: Well, they wouldn't dare! They love you too much. They "fear" you too much!
Captain von Trapp: I don't wish you to discuss my children in this manner.
Maria: Well, you've got to hear from someone! You're never home long enough to know them.
Captain von Trapp: I said I don't want to hear anymore from you about my children!
Maria: I know you don't, but you've got to! Now, take Liesl.
Captain von Trapp: [hesitatingly] You will not say one word about Liesl, Fraulein.
Maria: She's not a child anymore, and one of these days, you're going to wake up and find that she's a woman. You won't even know her. And Friedrich, he's a boy, but he wants to be a man and there's no one to show him how.
Captain von Trapp: Don't you dare tell me about my son.
Maria: Brigitta could tell you about him if you let her get close to you. She notices everything.
Captain von Trapp: Fraulein...
Maria: And Kurt pretends he's tough not to show how hurt he is when you brush him aside,
Captain von Trapp: That will do!
Maria: the way you do all of them. Louisa I don't even know about yet,
Captain von Trapp: I said that will do!
Maria: but somebody has to find out about her, and the little ones just want to be loved. Oh, please, Captain, love them! Love them all!
Captain von Trapp: I don't care to hear anything further from you about my children.
Maria: I am not finished yet, Captain!
Captain von Trapp: Oh, yes, you are, Captain!
[pauses, then corrects himself]
Captain von Trapp: Fraulein!

The Sound of Music Quotes

Brigitta: I think your dress is the ugliest one I ever saw!
Kurt: Brigitta, you shouldn't say that!
Brigitta: Why not? Don't you think it's ugly?
Kurt: Of course, but Fraulein Helga's was ugliest.

The Baroness: My dear, is there anything you can't do?
Maria: Well, I'm not sure I'll make a very good nanny.
The Baroness: If you have any problems, I'll be happy to help you.
