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.

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

Max

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

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.

Rolfe: [narrating a "telegram" for Liesl] Dear Liesl, I would like to tell you how I feel about you STOP Unfortunately, this wire is already too expensive Sincerely, Rolfe
Liesl: [sounded offended] Sincerely?
Rolfe: Cordially?
Liesl: [turning away] Cordially?
Rolfe: Affectionately?
[Liesl smiles and throws her arms around his neck]

Maria: [Friedrich and Kurt run into Maria's room during a thunderstorm] You boys weren't scared, too, were you?
Friedrich von Trapp: No. We just wanted to be sure that you weren't.
Maria: That was very thoughtful of you, Friedrich.
Friedrich von Trapp: It wasn't my idea. It was Kurt's.
Maria: Kurt! That's the one I left out. God bless Kurt!

[saying her bed time prayers] I forgot the other boy. Oh, what's his name? Oh, well, God bless What's-his-name.

Maria

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.

[singing] The hills are alive with the sound of music. With songs they have sung for a thousand years. The hills fill my heart with the sound of music. My heart wants to sing every song it hears.

Maria

Captain von Trapp: I don't care to hear anything further from you about my children.
Maria: I am not finished yet!
Captain von Trapp: Oh, yes, you are, Captain!
[pauses]
Captain von Trapp: Fraulein.

Maria: What is it?
Captain von Trapp: Berlin. They've offered me a commission. I've been requested to accept immediately and report to their naval base at Bremerhaven tomorrow.
Maria: I knew this would happen. I didn't think it would be so soon.
Captain von Trapp: To refuse them would be fatal for all of us. And joining them would be unthinkable.

Maria: I'd like to thank you all for the precious gift you left in my pocket today.
Captain von Trapp: What gift?
Maria: It's meant to be a secret between the children and me.
Captain von Trapp: Then I suggest you keep it, and let us eat.
Maria: Knowing how nervous I must have been, a stranger in a new household, knowing how important it was for me to feel accepted, it was so kind and thoughtful of you to make my first moments here so warm and happy and pleasant.
