Tripper: Oh yeah? Well, she sorta cornered me and there was nothing I could do without embarrassing her.
Rudy: Do you like her?
Tripper: Well I feel sorry for her, you know. She's got a glass eye. And, uh, I'm one of the few people who knows exactly which eye to look at when they're talking to her, so she's sort of fixated on me.
Rudy: Well, I like her.
Tripper: Well you're not exactly known for your taste. I'll probably just use her for the rest of the summer and then throw her on the scrap heap with all the rest of the women that I've destroyed.”
Julianne Potter: Did I tell you my gown was lavender?
George Downes: Hair swept up. Haven't touched your cake. Probably drumming your fingernails on the white linen tablecloth, the way you do when you're really feeling down. Perhaps looking at those nails thinking: 'God, I should have stopped in all my evil plotting to have that manicure, but it's too late now.
Julianne Potter: George, I didn't tell you my dress was lavender.
George Downes: Suddenly, a familiar song. And, you're off your chair in one, exquisite movement...wondering, searching, sniffing the wind like a dapple deer. Has God heard your little prayer? Will Cinderella dance again? And then, suddenly, the crowds part and there he is: sleek, stylish...radiant with charisma. Bizarrely, he's on the telephone. But then, so are you. And then he comes towards you...the moves of a jungle cat. Although you quite correctly sense that he is...gay...like most devastatingly handsome single men of his age are, you think...what the hell. Life goes on. Maybe there won't be marriage...maybe there won't be sex...but, by God, there'll be dancing.”
Seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile
You'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her
Dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me
Tiny dancer in my hand”

Jack: Come on, come with me.
Rose: Jack! Jack, wait. I can't do this.

Lynn Sear: Cole, please stop...
Cole Sear: She wanted me to tell you she saw you dance. She said, when you were little, you and her had a fight, right before your dance recital. You thought she didn't come see you dance. She did. She hid in the back so you wouldn't see. She said you were like an angel. She said you came to the place where they buried her. Asked her a question? She said the answer is... 'Every day.' What did you ask?
Lynn Sear: Do... Do I make her proud?”
Brenda: No thank you, man. I'm quite irie, just being left alone over here, don't you know?”
Celie: You saying God is vain?
Shug: No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it.
Celie: You saying it just wanna be loved like it say in the Bible?
Shug: Yeah, Celie. Everything wanna be loved. Us sing and dance, and holla just wanting to be loved. Look at them trees. Notice how the trees do everything people do to get attention... except walk? [they laugh]
Shug: Oh Miss Celie, I feels like singing!”

Squeak: Not if she a heifer! [to Sofia]
Squeak: And not if he my man! You just a big ol heifer. Ha Ha Ha.
Sofia: [to Squeak] Like I said, fine with me!”
Lil' Pete: Dear Mama, so much has changed since my last letter. I scarcely know where to begin. First off, it turns out our daddy is a bad, bad man, and he got thrown in jail. But it's okay, 'cause Screaming Eagle, the Indian chief who raised Tommy, said he'd be all our dads, too. I really like it here in this village. Our new brothers and sisters love to have fun and have been so nice to all of us.
Screaming Eagle: These white guys cannot dance!
Lil' Pete: Danny don't drink whiskey no more. And Ramon and Herm are trying to learn Indian ways. Oh, and big news. I finally have a girlfriend, and she's much prettier than a canty-loupe.
Tommy aka White Knife: [to Lil Pete & Beaver Breath] Come on you two, you're missing all the fun!
Lil' Pete: Anyways, Mama, thanks for raising me. Your loving son, Lil Pete, proud member of the Ridiculous 6.”
