Quotes from the film It’s a Wonderful Life

“I love him, dear Lord. Please watch over him tonight.”
-Mary Bailey

Mrs. Bailey: Can you give me any good reason why you shouldn’t call on Mary?
George: Sure – Sam Wainwright…
Mrs. Bailey: Sam Wainwright’s away in New York, and you’re here in Bedford Falls.
George: And all’s fair in love and war?
Mrs. Bailey: Well, I don’t know about war.
-Dialogue between George Bailey and his mother
“I love you truly, truly dear.
Life with its shadows,
Life with its cheer,
Plays into dreams,
When I feel you are near.
I love you truly, truly dear.”
-Duet by Bert and Ernie on George and Mary’s wedding night
Quotes from the film White Christmas

Judy: Last night she couldn’t sleep. Today she won’t eat. She’s in love.
Phil: Well, if that’s love, somebody goofed.
Judy: Oh, it’s love all right, but she’s deliberately putting up barriers. I’ll bet my bottom dollar on it.
Judy and Phil discussing Betty and Bob
“Love, you didn’t do right by me.
You planned a romance that just hadn’t a chance
And I’m through.
Love, you didn’t do right by me.
I’m back on the shelf and I’m blaming myself,
But it’s you.
My one love affair didn’t get anywhere
From the start.
To send me a joe who had winter and snow
In his heart
Wasn’t smart.
Love, you didn’t do right by me.
As they say in the song,
‘You done me wrong.’
Yes, Mr. Love,
You done me wrong.”
-Betty Haynes, singing at the Carousel
“The two of us were having some laughs together and got away with loving each other.”
-Bob to Betty
“We’ll follow the old man wherever he wants to go
As long as he wants to go, opposite to the foe
We’ll stay with the old man wherever he wants to stay
As long as he stays away from the battle’s fray
Because we love him, we love him
Especially when he keeps us on the ball
And we’ll tell the kiddies we answered duty’s call
With the grandest son of a soldier of them all.”
-Soldiers of the 151st division singing to Major General Tom Waverly
