| Thomas Mitchell (Gerald O'Hara): Do you
mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O'Hara, that Tara, that land doesn't mean
anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin' for,
worth fightin' for, worth dyin' for, because it's the only thing that lasts.
Thomas Mitchell (Gerald O'Hara): It will come to you, this love
of the land.
Hattie McDaniel (Mammy): Oh no you ain't! If you
don't care what folks says about this family, I does. And I done told you and
told you, you can always tell a lady by the way she eats in front of people
like a bird. And I ain't aimin' to have you go over to Mista John Wilkes' house
and eat like a field hand and gobble like a hog.
(Scarlett O'Hara): Ashley Wilkes says he likes to see a girl with a healthy
Hattie McDaniel (Mammy): Well I ain't see Mista Ashley
asked for to marry you.
Hattie McDaniel (Mammy):It ain't
fittin'...it ain't fittin'. It jes' ain't fittin'.......It ain't fittin'.
Clark Gable (Rhett Butler): With enough courage, you can do
without a reputation.
Clark Gable (Rhett): Take a good look my
dear. It's an historic moment you can tell your grandchildren about how you
watched the Old South fall one night.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): I
can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): As God is my witness, as God
is my witness they're not going to lick me! I'm going to live through this and
when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again! No, nor any of my folk. If I
have to lie, steal, cheat or kill! As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry
Butterfly McQueen (Prissy): Lawzy, we got to have a
doctor! I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies!
Gable(Rhett): Now that you've got your lumber mill and Frank's money, you
won't come to me as you did to the jail, so I see I shall have to marry you.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): I never heard of such bad taste.
Clark Gable (Rhett): Did you ever think of marrying just for
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): Marriage, fun? Fiddle-dee-dee! Fun for
men you mean.
Clark Gable(Rhett): No, I don't think I will kiss
you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you! You should
be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.
(Scarlett): Rhett, don't! I shall faint!
Clark Gable (Rhett): I want
you to faint. This is what you were meant for. None of the fools you've ever
know have kissed you like this, have they? Your Charles, or your Frank, or your
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): You'd rather live with
that silly little fool who can't open her mouth except to say "yes" or "no" and
raise a passel of mealy-mouthed brats just like her!
(Ashley Wilkes): You mustn't say unkind things about Melanie.
Leigh (Scarlett): Who are you to tell me I mustn't? You led me on... you
made me believe you wanted to marry me!
Leslie Howard (Ashley): Now
Scarlett, be fair. I never at any time...
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett):
You did, it's true, you did!
Clark Gable (Rhett): You're like
the thief who isn't the least bit sorry he stole, but is terribly, terribly
sorry he's going to jail.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett): Rhett... If
you go ... where shall I go? What shall I do?
Clark Gable (Rhett):
Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
Vivien Leigh (Scarlett):
After all ... tomorrow is another day.
