Funny movie quotes from Top Hat, starring Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers
Funny movie quotes from Top Hat, a very funny romantic comedy – starring Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers. She falls in love with him, despite (wrongly) thinking he’s her best friend’s husband. Which leads to a lot of conflict … and humor! Enjoy!
Jerry Travers: In dealing with a girl or horse, one just lets nature take its course.
Dale Tremont: Madge, have you any objections if I scare your husband so that he’ll never look at another woman?
Madge Hardwick: Dale, no husband is ever too scared to look.
Madge Hardwick: My dear, when you’re as old as I am, you take your men as you find them – if you can find them.
Jerry Travers: Are you afraid of thunder?
Dale Tremont: Oh, no. It’s just the noise.
Jerry Travers: You know what thunder is, don’t you?
Dale Tremont: Of course. It’s something about the air.
Jerry Travers: No, no. When a clumsy cloud from here meets a fluffy little cloud from there, he billows towards her. She scurries away and he scuds right up to her. She cries a little and there you have you showers. He comforts her. They spark. That’s the lightning. They kiss. Thunder.
Jerry Travers: All is fair in love and war, and this is revolution!
Dale Tremont: I still feel a little guilty, being here with you while Alberto is out looking for us.
Jerry Travers: Come on! Let’s eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we have to face him.
Horace Hardwick: Mr. Travers is in trouble. He has practically put his foot right into a hornets’ nest.
Bates: But hornets’ nests grow on trees, sir.
Horace Hardwick: Never mind that. We have got to do something.
Bates: What about rubbing it with butter, sir?
Horace Hardwick: You blasted fool, you can’t rub a girl with butter!
Bates: My sister got into a hornets’ nest and we rubbed HER with butter, sir!
Horace Hardwick: That’s the wrong treatment, you should’ve used mud – Never mind that!
Dale Tremont: How could I have ever fallen in love with a man like you!
[Dale slaps Jerry, then storms off]
Jerry Travers: She loves me.
Dale Treemont: [talking about the horse] Who was his dam?
Jerry Travers: What?
Dale Treemont: I said, who was his dam?
Jerry Travers: I don’t know miss, he didn’t give a…
Horace Hardwick: You mean to sit there and tell me that that girl slapped your face in front of all those people for nothing?
Jerry Travers: Well, what would you have done? Sold tickets?
Alberto Beddini: Never again will I allow women to wear my dresses!
Horace Hardwick: What kind of plane?
Jerry Travers: One with wings!
Alberto Beddini: As Mrs. Adam, what would you wear?
Dale Tremont: Fig leaves!
Dale Tremont: What is this strange power you have over horses?
Jerry Travers: [thinks] Horsepower?
Horace Hardwick: You know how wives are.
Jerry Travers: No I don’t. How are they?
Jerry Travers: [realising why Dale has been behaving so peculiarly] She’s been mistaking me for you this whole time.
Madge Hardwick: Well, no wonder she said he was interesting.
Horace Hardwick: Yes, no wonder… I resent that!
Alberto Beddini: You are in this plot. You are cahooting with him!
Alberto Beddini: Well, why not face the musicians now?
Jerry Travers: May I rescue you?
Dale Tremont: No, thank you. I prefer being in distress.
