Read below for some quotes from the famous film that was nominated for three Oscar awards, Changeling.


Christine Collins: Walter, honey. Time to wake up.
Walter Collins: Just ten more minutes...
Christine Collins: Sorry, sport. You can sleep in tomorrow, that's what Saturdays are for.
Christine Collins: My name is Christine Collins. On March 10th, my son Walter Collins disappeared. A five month investigation led to a boy being brought to Los Angeles from De Count, Illinious. The LAPD told me and all of you that this boy was my son. He is not my son.
Rev. Gustav Briegleb: Is this Mrs. Christine Collins?
Christine Collins: Yes.
Rev. Gustav Briegleb: I'm the pastor over at St. Paul's Presbyterian. I've made it my mission in life to bring to light all the things the LAPD wish none of us ever know about.
Christine Collins: I just want my son.
Rev. Gustav Briegleb: What the hell have you done with Christine Collins?
Chief James E. Davis: If the boy you brought back is not Walter Collins, where the hell is he?
Christine Collins: Three boys made a run for it that night, detective, and if one got out, then may be either or both of the other two did too. Maybe Walter's out there having the same fears that he did. Afraid to come home and identify himself, or afraid to get in trouble. But either way, it gives me something I didn't have before today.
Detective Lester Ybarra: What's that?
Christine Collins: Hope.
Christine Collins: I used to tell Walter, "Never start a fight... but always finish it." I didn't start this fight... but by God, I'm going to finish it.
Mrs. Fox: Mrs. Collins, if that boy's your son I'll eat my yard stick.
