Elizabeth Taylor - a true star
ET: Why are you looking at me like that?
PN: Like what?
ET: Like you were just looking.
PN: I wasn't conscious of looking at you, Maggie.
ET: I was conscious of it.
ET: If you were thinking the same thing I was...
PN: No, Maggie!
ET: Why not?
PN: Will you please keep your voice down?
ET: I know you better than you think.
ET: I've seen that look before...
ET: ...and I know what it used to mean.
ET: And it still means the same thing now.
PN: You're not the same woman now, Maggie.
ET: Don't you think I know that?
ET: Don't you think I know...
PN: Know what, Maggie?
ET: That I've gone through this horrible transformation.
ET: I've become hard and frantic and cruel.
PN: Are you planning on meeting Big Daddy's plane?
ET: Oh, Brick! I get so lonely.
PN: Everybody gets that.
ET: Living with somebody you love can be...
ET: ...lonelier than living entirely alone...
ET: ...when the one you love doesn't love you.
ET: You can't even stand drinking out of the same glass, can you?
PN: Would you like to live alone, Maggie?
ET: No, I wouldn't.
ET: Why can't you lose your good looks, Brick?
ET: Most drinking men lose theirs.
ET:Why can't you?
ET: I think you've even got better looking since you went on the bottle.
ET: You were such a wonderful lover.
PN: You'll be late!
ET: You were so exciting to be in love with.
ET: Mostly, I guess, because you were...
ET: If I thought you'd...
ET: ...never make love to me again...
ET: ...I'd find the longest, sharpest knife and stick it straight into my heart.
ET: I'd do that.
ET: Oh, Brick! How long does this have to go on, this punishment?
ET: Haven't I served my term?
ET: Can't I apply for a pardon?
PN: Your finishing-school voice sounds like you were running upstairs telling somebody there house was on fire.
ET: Is it any wonder?
ET: You know what I feel like?
ET: I feel all the time like a cat on a hot tin roof.
PN: Then jump off the roof, Maggie. Jump off it.
PN: Cats jump off roofs and land uninjured.
PN: Do it. Jump.
ET: Jump where?
ET: Into what?
PN: Take a lover.
ET: I don't deserve that!
ET: I can't see any man but you.
ET: Even with my eyes closed, I just see you.
ET Why can't you get ugly, Brick?
ET: Why can't you get fat or ugly or something, so I can stand it?
PN: You'll make out fine.Your kind always does.
ET: I'm more determined than you think.
ET: I'll win all right.
PN: Win what?
PN: What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof?
ET: Just staying on it, I guess...
ET: ...as long as she can.

ET: Aren't you happy with me?
MC: Happy? The trouble is I'm too happy tonight.
ET: You seem so strange, so deep and far away.
ET: As though you were holding something back.
MC: I am.
MC: I'd better.
MC: This is nice. I don't want to spoil it.
ET: You'd better tell me.
MC: I love you. I've loved you since the first moment I saw you.
MC: I guess maybe I even loved you before I saw you.
ET: And you're the fellow that wondered why I invited you here tonight.
ET: I tell you why. I love...
ET: Are they watching us?
ET: I love you, too! It scares me.
ET: But it is a wonderful feeling.
MC: I can hold you, I can see you. I can hold you next to me.
MC: But what's it going to be like next week?
MC: I'll still be as much in love with you. You'll be gone!
ET: But I'll be at the lake! You'll come and see me.
ET: It's so beautiful. You must come.
ET: I know my parents will be a problem.
ET: But you can come the weekends when the kids are there.
ET: You don't have to work weekends. That's the best time.
ET: If you don't come, I'll drive down here to see you.
ET: I'll pick you up outside the factory.
ET: You'll be my pick-up! We'll arrange it somehow, whatever way we can.
ET: We'll have such wonderful times together, just the two of us.
ET: I'd be the happiest person in the world.
ET: The second happiest.
MC: Angela, if I could only tell you, how much I love you.
MC: If I could only tell you all.
ET: Tell Mama. Tell Mama all.
ET: I actually fell for him.
ET: It! That! There!
RB: Martha's a romantic at heart.
ET: That I am.
ET: I actually fell for him.
ET: And the match seemed practical too.
ET: For a while Daddy thought George had the stuff...
RB: Wait a minute, Martha.
ET: ...to take over when he was ready to retire. And we both thought that naturally ...
RB: Stop it!
ET: What do you want?!
RB: I wouldn't go on if I were you.
ET: You wouldn't? Well, you're not!
RB: You've already sprung a leak about you-know-what.
ET: What? WHAT?
RB: About the sprout. About the little bugger. Our son.
RB: If you start on this other business, I warn you...
ET: I stand warned.
Son : Do we have to go through this?
ET: Anyway, I married the S.O.B.
ET: I had it all planned out.
ET: First he'd take over the History Department, then when Daddy retired he'd take over the whole college, you know?
ET: That was the way it was supposed to be!
ET: Getting angry?
ET: That was how it was supposed to be.
ET: All very simple.
ET: Daddy thought it was a good idea too.
ET: For a while!
ET: Until he started watching for a couple of years.
ET: Getting angrier?
ET: Till he watched for a couple years...
ET: ...and started thinking it wasn't such a good idea after all.
ET: That maybe Georgie-boy didn't have the stuff!
ET: That maybe he didn't have it in him!
RB: Stop it, Martha!
ET: Like hell, I will!
ET: You see George didn't have much push. He wasn't particularly aggressive.
ET: In fact, he was sort of a flop!
ET: A great big, fat flop!
RB: MARTA! Stop it, Marta.
ET: I hope that was an empty bottle. You can't afford to waste good liquor.
ET: Not on your salary! Not on an associate professor's salary!
