My fellow Austrians, I shall not be seeing you again perhaps for a very long time. I would like to sing for you now... a love song. I know you share this love. I pray that you will never let it die.

Captain von Trapp

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.

You're lucky. With Fraulein Helga, it was a snake!

Frau Schmidt

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.

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.
