Funny movie quotes from Brigadoon, starring Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, Cyd Charisse

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): Frank, put it on the bill.
Bartender: The bill, sir, is very high.
Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): So am I!

[In a crowded bar]
Tommy Albright (Gene Kelly): It’s hot in here.
Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): It’s not the heat, it’s the humanity.

Meg Brockie: I’m highly attracted to you. Why, when I look at you I feel wee tadpoles jumping in my spine.
Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): That’s about as repulsive an idea as I’ve heard in years!

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): Can you think of one good reason why I, a strange man, should be interested in proposing to you, a mighty strange woman and at this hour of the day?
Meg Brockie: Because you’re a lad and I’m a lass!
Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): Well, with that philosophy you must have had a provocative career!

Tommy Albright (Gene Kelly): [miserable] Why do you have to lose something, to find out what it really means?

Andrew Campbell: You’ll never find peace by hating, lad. It only shuts ye off more from the world. And this town is only a cursed place, if ye make it so. To the rest of us, ‘tis a blessed place!

Mr. Lundie: They were indeed horrible destructive women. I dinna suppose you have such women in your country?
Tommy Albright (Gene Kelly): Witches?
Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): Oh we have ‘em. We pronounce it differently.

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): …There’s nothing a woman hates more than her fiancee’s best friend. He knows all the secrets she’s going to spend the rest of her life trying to find out.

Mr. Lundie: It’s the hardest thing in the world to give everything. Though it’s usually the only way to get everything.

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): You’re confused, aren’t you boy? If you believed as much as you thought you believed, you wouldn’t be confused.

[Tommy is concerned about Jeff’s drinking]
Tommy Albright (Gene Kelly): You told me you were going to ease up.
Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): Yeah I know, but I’m a terrible liar.

Mr. Lundie: Anything is possible when you love someone. Even… miracles?

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): Well, most of my friends who have inferiority complexes are absolutely right. They’re not as good as everybody else!

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): If they want to disregard two hundred years of human bing-bang, that’s their privilege.

Jeff Douglas (Van Johnson): If there’s anything I hate… it’s you!

Charlie Chisholm Dalrymple: And may God bless me this evening as much as I would bless Him if I were He and He were Charles Dalrymple.
